darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
In bottle (vintage 2013); pours a hazy brown color. Aroma quite sweet ... taste was of candied fruit, somewhat creamy .. a nice beer. I quite enjoyed this one, though the 12% stopped to take over at the end.

JulienHuxley (3618) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Geers. Rich mahogany pour with thin veil of off cream colored foam. Aroma is rich, lots of boozy fruits, plums, walnuts, candied fruit, light toasty aroma. Taste is sweet, toasty with rather well hidden alcohol behind a lot of toasty caramel and fruity sweet goodness. Palate is rich, full bodied with good carbonation. Nice.

Drank 18-8 while Facebook-messaging. Smell is similar to Alesmith grand cru (alcohol, barrel-agnedness, sweet/bourbon). Really soft, sweet beer. Nice quadrupel. Bourbon taste is very nice and very present. Like this beer. Aftertaste is dominated by alcohol.

Shared with Wim and Bart at Wim’s place. Clear amber colored beer with small white head and medium carbonation. Fruited malty chocolate aroma. Medium sparkling and creamy palate. Finish is hopped sweet bitter slight dry and bit alcoholic. Nice one!

brnandersen (2240) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Lovely, deep amber-golden colour with a small, dense white head. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, green apples, plums - ripe fruits. A slight hint of booze. Some syrup. A bit restrained. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body with a lively carbonation that is a bit disturbing to my palate. Cuts to much of the richness. Finishes sweet and fruity with some warmth from the alcohol. Okay Quadrupel - However, I had higher expectations to a beer from Struise.

Aroma: Sweet Fruit (Pears, Plums), bread, alcohol Taste:Follows the aroma sweet fruity, maly, light alcoholic with not much bitterness.

rane (926) - Nibe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Bottle. Dark amber with medium size dense pale brown head. Aroma a little weak, dried fruits and some alcohol. Taste dried fruits, sweet malts, raisins, bananas. The lack in aroma costs this beer a few points overall, otherwise nice- Rerated 280115. Exactly the same score without looking at the old rating!
