zaf (270) - - MAY 14, 2013
da questo momento in poi (cambio gettoni allo zbf 2013) comincia un vero e proprio delirio/declino..il birrificio struise diventa il mio principale punto di riferimento..e come potrebbe non esserlo??da quello che ricordo posso solo dire che su 4/5 birre assaggiate ognuna era un vero e proprio capolavoro..nel vero senso della parola..aromi impressionanti,complessi all’ennesima potenza..ogni sorso era un tripudio di sapori quasi impossibili da decifrare completamente ma che sicuramente meritano un altro assaggio..per la maggior parte ho assggiato birre scure,come questa..micidiale e il tutto servito alla spina insieme al GATTO LOPEZ :D zbf 2013

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle, 12.0%. Mild bready aroma, hint of peppery alcohol. Hazy dark amber colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour starts off very sweet, even sugary. Has a little spicy malt notes and some alcohol. It has the same good breadiness as Westvleteren 12. A great beer but it is very sweet and, I must say, too sweet for me.

Bamsen78 (4530) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit and yeast, with subtle, hoppy touches. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with notes of fruit, touches of raisins and yeast and hints of hops. Lingering, sweetish aftertaste with nutty notes. Warming alcohol presence. The closest to Westvleteren XII I have tasted, just sweeter. Yummy. Oh, how I wish I was in the beautiful nowhere of rural Flanders again...

Bottle from Kris Wines. Hazy copper, offwhite head. Sweet raisins and nutty aromas. On the sweet side, but with lots of fruity complexity. Nice.

spacecube (1430) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
330ml bottle, pours red, small off white head. Aroma is golden apple tang, cherries, carrot cake, toffee, blackcurrant, medium malty, light hop bitterness, almond and nutty notes, resiny. Body is medium full, texture is oily and syrupy, sweet with little hop bitterness. The flavours carry this. Drinks very smoothly, alcohol is blended very well. A complex and tasty brew.

Melnis (329) - LATVIA - JUL 31, 2015
Grandma fruit jam and sweet golden raisins. Too sweet, but could be more complex and with no "extra"

Icedwarf (861) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2015
Licht troebel bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zuur fruitig, bessen en perzik, echter niet zoet. Smaak wijkt af van meeste quadrupels.
