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.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Mahogany red with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, bread, dark fruits and the flavour of sweetness, roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits, figs, cane sugar and a light sourness, that has a bit tart hints. 2450

1FastSTi (3357) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Pours to a murky chestnut body with lots of small white/tan particulate. A thin coating tan head with dense lacing sits on top. The aroma is yeasty with tart lemon juice and a nice bready grain. Very house-styled ít IJ aroma. The flavor is really yeasty with tart pale malt and light lemon and banana. Perhaps some oranges. Lots of earthy yeasts. Doesnít taste much different as a whole than the other ít IJ beers. Perhaps somethingís lost in translation? :) The palate is carbonated, lightly acidic, and earthy. It grows on me the more I drink it.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle from god knows where. Salty malty nose. Lovely amber colour with a very well behaved off white head. Tangy malty flavour. Fairly one dimensional but decent enough. Slightly milky. Alcohol is hidden well apart from a slight spirit like burn at the back of the throat in the finish. Not bad.

JorisPPattyn (8796) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2007
Hazy orange-foxy beer with a good yellow-beige head. Very perfumed nose, even raspberry. Yeasty, fusel alcohols betraying themselves. Again very perfumed taste, a hint at tartness, and a lot of esters. Fruity, like strawberry flavouring, but a tad artificial. Well bodied, slick, oily, alcohol. Artificial strawberry flavour remaining in the aftertaste. A bit perfumey, and it is not a beer that one would drink at more than one an evening. Would be hard to swallow fast, even discarding the ABV.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Rich bronze color with a big tan head. Yeasty, berry/plum aroma with some earthy malt. Rich malty flavor with some earthy yeast, spice, and plum/raisin. Fuller bodied. Lingering light fruit and lots of malt. Nice, rich, and good complexity.
