ABT_S54 (168) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
75cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Pours a dark tangerine colour with a wonderfully generous head which billows and lasts admirably. Aroma is very powerful - almost barley wine-like in its strength. Taste is butterscotch, honeyed oranges, caramel and richness with a few spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) thrown in for good measure with banana like creaminess in the finish. The ABV becomes more apparent as the temperature warms but is hidden particularly well up to this point. A sweet and pudding-like richness. Best enjoyed by itself after a nice meal.

Vells (714) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 19, 2014
Quite intense syrupy fruitiness, reminds me of hardcore compote, dried fruits, ripe fruits, nice malt background, light caramel, candy, bit spicy. Mostly sweet with light bitterness. ABV very well hidden. Nice enjoyable brew

adster (424) - HUNGARY - OCT 11, 2014
Orrkápráztató aromái teltek, haraphatóak, rágógumival tömöttek, kakaósak, karamellásak, szivárványos élesztősek. Habja gyorsan tör előre, majd hasonló lendülettel el is tűnik, így nyitva meg az utat a zabolázhatatlan illatáradatnak. Utánozhatatlanul belga jellemvonás... Az pedig a Struise sajátja, ahogyan a masszív alkoholfok elbújik abban a testben, amely csípős fűszerezettségű, desszertszerű, érett, nemes jellemvonásokkal felvértezett, likőrös gyümölcsös, pikáns szerkezet. Karcos keserűség pingálja ki aztán a szertelen képet, változatossá téve az irigylésre méltóan összeszedett benyomásokat.
