A barley wine brewed in the English style. Struis is a full-bodied beer with a deep, dark colour and a soft, long-lasting head. The aroma is dark and sweet, with clear tones of chocolate and dried fruit. The aftertaste is dry and long-lasting, and leaves you yearning for more. A delicious accompaniment to food and ideal with skeapsrond cheese. Struis is only available as a bottled beer.

mutz (490) - NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Troebel bruin, niet heel veel kraag maar wel een blijvend randje. Ruikt zoetig, mout, snoepspekkies. Smaakt vrij zoet, vaag likeurig met een zuur randje, niet erg complex.

tomekk1978 (272) - POLAND - APR 11, 2014
Barwa: miedziana, zmętniona. Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość szybko opadająca, ale utrzymująca się na ściankach. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: alkohol, ciemne słody, suszone owoce, może lekka czekolada. Smak: czekolada, alkohol, lekka słodycz (na początku). Druga część piwa (z drożdżami) przynosi nutę karmelową i większa goryczkę.

Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby brown with an impressive thick off white head. Taste is caramel and toffee and really soft. Slides down your throat. Aftertaste also soft and delicate.

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2014
Hazy ruby red-brown colour, beige creamy head. Sweet fruity nose with cherries, raisins, plums and red grapes, burnt sugar, vanilla. Fruitiness in the taste as well accompanied by caramel, honey, gingerbread; sweet palate,some sourness and just a little bitter and alcoholic. Aftertaste is sweet, red wine-ish, without prominent dryness but with an alcoholic warmth. Thick body, oily mouthfeel, low-medium carbonated. Decent but too rounded, no real complexity: I’ve had better.
