skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
At Struise store in Bruges. Dark, Caramel Pour. Aroma of prune and a bit of alcohol. The beer is rich is density, based on the Rye. Cloudy and thick. However, the Trippel cannot contain the alcohol, as the vanilla an coconut work to the front. The idea is brilliant, the execution is good- not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andriesradu (564) - ROMANIA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours dark brown/red with a fast diminishing head. Sweet, malty and alchool aroma. Flavor is dominated by alchool and some yeast. Light bourbon finish and aftertaste. Dissapointed.

matbli (114) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle 330 ml, pours cloudy hazelnut brown with beautiful long lasting beige head. Aroma of red fruits, raisins, caramel, apricot and slightly noticable note of vanilla and wood. Taste is quite sweet but all in all still good balanced with some delicate fruity sourness and a light bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is very good hidden for such a high abv. Also the head is extremly stable considering how strong it is.

ForlornHope (180) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a dark red colour with an off-white head. It is also murky, most of the sediment kicking up. Rich aroma of malt, smokiness and whisky, but not overpowering. Taste is sweet and with a bit of bitterness. The flavours are mainly of malt and a lingering hint of oaky, smoky whisky. Rich and sticky finish, you can feel the alcohol in this. It’s OK and I’m glad I tried it, but it’s an acquired taste.

MonsterMagnet (495) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Bottle, pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma: raisins, brown sugar, vanilla. Taste: raisins, spices, vanilla sugar, rye, wood. Sweet, light bitter, slick creamt mouthfeel, average carbonation. Boozy dry sweet finish. Ok, but a bit murky, taste wise. Expected better from Struise.

adasko (874) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 22, 2015
Very nice barrel and strong alcohol aroma. It’s clear, copper color. Almost no head. Perfectly smooth mouth feel. In taste it’s mostly sweet, with bourbon notes. Leaving awesome aftertaste. It’s a fantastic bear!

NikkTwist (1913) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2015
Draft at Monks. Murky copper brown with no head. Full bodied. Silky start and finish over one big fruity, spicy mountain. Bourbon notes in the aroma. Brown amber fruit and hoppy citrus pith. Prunes. Dates. Apricot pits. Golden rasins. Rotted tangerines. Rich medium-blonde caramel malts. Toffee pudding. Light brown sugar. Chestnuts. The rye adds a nice element of spice. Cinnamon. Cardamom. Peppercorns. The Bourbon brings in some nice drying tannins to bring down the sweetness. High ABV is warming but well hidden. The rough edges feel smoothed out from the aging but the beer still maintains a pleasant fruity character. Wonderfully complex!

adster (506) - HUNGARY - APR 17, 2015
A Struise alkotásaiban egyszerűen nem lehet csalódni, egy 2013-as évjáratú, bourbon hordóban érlelt 10%-os tripel esetén ez az állítás anélkül is hatványozottan igaz, hogy akár egy kortyot is ittunk volna a becses főzetből. Paplanszerű, tömött és nehéz, krémszínű habja iránymutató jelleggel telepszik rá a sörre, melynek színe maga a tökély, teltséget, komplexitást, zamatokat sugároz. Férfiparfümös, színes cukorkás, aszalt trópusi gyümölcsös és marcipános aromái érett karakterek súlyát cipelik magukon, prémium minőségű alkoholok illata terjeng a levegőben. Ha már alkohol, a 10 százalék lényegében észrevehetetlen marad, ahogyan azt már megszokhattuk, az ámulatba esés mégis minden alkalommal megtörténik. Kiegyensúlyozott teste a tonnányi ízjegy súlya alatt sem roppan össze, ez a simaság és elegancia egyszerűen utánozhatatlan. Ami a bornál a must, a sör esetében az a Struise apátsági jellegű főzeteinek összessége. Ódon komponensek kirobbanóan ízletes szövevénye, melyben az aszalt déli gyümölcsök, szilva, mazsola, vanília, mézédes maláta és érett tölgyfaháncs, fajsúlyos, ámde simulékony alkohol összeölelkezése magával ragadóan egyedi képet alkot.
