COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mariuspoenari (703) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
33cl bottle from the liquor store. Dark copper/caramel pour, with a fine tan head that gives way to a thin lacing. Smells a bit funky, with notes of caramel and a bit of coffee but mostly saison-style barnyard funkiness, pickles, black olives, stuff like that. The taste is bittersweet and has a metallic feel, alongiside notes of dried fruit, caramel and spices. An interesting beer, but a bit all over the place.

GSAP (658) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
Smaak overtuigd met melkchocolade, mokka, koffie en andere zoete lekkernijen voor de winter. Wel lichtelijk alcohol smaak (lijmig) die langzaam wegebt in de nasmaak. Aroma is zacht en wat lichtjes, maar met ontbijtkoek en kruidenlikeur is het fijn. Geen kraag op donkerbruin.

gegwilson (2737) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle in In De Widerman, Amsterdam. Deep amber with a foamy cream head. Mild malty aroma. The taste is sweet and malty with toffee and stewed fruits. Som evident booze and a touch thin, but very nice otherwise.

Nope geen vrienden mee. Ik gok op een slecht exemplaar (batch 3/2016 080 02094). Wat muffe geur en smaak die snel weg is, heel vlak. Bittere nasmaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gurthnar (4483) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from Damian. Rich malty aroma, grapes, raisins, dried fruits. Burnt sugar, light chocolate. Dark brown colour and a stable off-white head. Taste does the aroma justice. Sweetish fruity beginning slowly turning into a dry chocolatey slightly roasted finish. Toasted, burnt sugar. Very good.

Nogal een donker bier, weinig of geen schuimkraag. Wel zeer lekker bier. Traag te drinken.
