50cl 2009 ed., bottle at home. Very dark brown colour, foamy beige head that nicely laces the beer. Rich and complex nose and taste with vinous Flemish red tones, sour cherries, tard, roasted malts and bourbon, cask notes. Bourbony aftertaste, lingers nicely. Lively carbonation, medium body. Compared to the Ypres Reserva, I like the vinous barrel aging of the Reserva better, works better with the base ale.

Thanks to Mathieu87 for that one! Bottle looks really good. What a gusher! Maybe 1/3 of it made it into my glass. Light brownish, small head. Starts sourish, mild fruity, some nutty notes. Finish moldy-sourish. Not my favourite Struise beer.

Bottle, full out gusher on opening. Whoah. Pours hazy ruby chestnut, small fizzy tan head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, vanilla. Flavor is light plus tart, oak, molasses, tart cherries, a bit of vanilla. Medium body, high carbonation. Eh.

Draught. Aroma has olives, sourness and funk. Taste is sour and slight funky with cherries and slight hints of olives. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Cerveja intrigante.... aparencia nao agrada muito mas depois de vertida no copo ela (se nao mto gelada) ja começa a exalar seu aroma de envelhecida em bourbon....sabor deliciosamente inquietante.....vale provar!

Draft. Muddy dark brown, thin large-bubbled tan head. Some murky maroon hues when held to the light. Oaky aroma. Some sweet cherry, green oak, vanilla, a hint of bourbon and dash of balsamic. Smooth flavor, not intensely sour. A little chocolate, cherry cola, oak, vinegar at the swallow. Green apple and pear, too. Lingering lactic bite. Malty. Medium body, moderate carb with a lot of fizz as it moves. Smooth blend, good flavor. I really like what the bourbon adds.
