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.

Demens (219) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 19, 2016
0,33l bottle. Hazy brown colour with quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma: Caramel, banana, nuts, vanilla, smoke. Taste: Very sweet malty taste with hiding light bitterness. I don’t feel any special notes, but it has a very good mouth feel. Smokey caramel maybe. Light carbonation with medium/full body. Very pleasent long bitter/sweet finish. Not my best barley wine but a very good one.

bottle - Pours dark burgundy colored with a large, light tan head. It smells of malt, toffee, and dark fruit. The flavor is very sweet with caramel, dark fruit, and then alcohol that’s mostly buried under sugary sweetness. It’s fairly good but a little too sweet for me.

Biroholik (821) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Kolor: <Brązowy. Mętny. Na dnie cała masa pływających drobinek.
Piana: Gushing konkretny po otworzeniu piwa. Piwo wyciekało przez kilka minut. Piana ładna w kolorze złamanej bieli, drobna. Krótko się utrzymuje. Zero lacingu.
> Zapach : Bardzo różnorodny. Mocno słodowy. Umiarkowanie karmelowy. Trochę nut znanych z mocnych piw belgijskich , trochę z piw pszenicznych. Aromat suszonych owoców (śliwki, daktyle, morele). Minimalny aromat angielskich chmieli.
Smak: Nuty owoców : śliwka, ciemne winogrona. Nuty zbożowe, tostowe i przypieczona skórka od chleba. Tu i ówdzie lekki banan. Piwo bardzo rozgrzewające. Smak grzanego wina. Alkohol minimalnie wychodzi na zewnątrz. Finisz umiarkowanie słodki. Goryczka średnia nieco alkoholowa.
Wysycenie: Wysokie.
Ten holenderski Barley Wine jest mocny , intensywny, wielowarstwowy. Aromat i smak suszonych owoców, skórki od chleba, karmelu. Piwo jest pełne i bardzo treściwe. Smakuje jak dobry belgijski dubel. Warte polecenia!
