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.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Bottle... Saint Patricks Day 2007... Murky amber ale with a large, rocky, off-white head. Everlasting, creamy retention. Earthy, sweet nose provides notes of rawhide, brown sugar and wine with a whisper of acidity. The flavor has excellent balance. Sweet, but not cloying. Bitter, but not harsh. Acidic, but not tart. Medium to full-bodied with crisp (but not prickly) carbonation. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Svesse (6900) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2007
(Bottle, Monks Caf, Stockholm, 2 Feb 2006) Dark ruby colour with frothy off-white head, some lacing. Fruity nose with notes of dark fruit and black-currant. Malty, fruity taste with dark fruit, black-currant, dried figs, raisins and chocolate with a spicy, chocolatey, slightly bitter finish. Drier than expected. Very nice!

Bottle (Edo, Danke !): Chestnut-amber coloured, a bit hazy with visible sediments, creamy, egg-shell coloured stable foam; strong fruity nose (dried fruit) with caramel and (port-)wine; medium bodied, robust sweet flavour; warming, caramelly fruity finish with a little tartness and a little bitterness. A pleasant, warming ale...........

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2007
Bottled. Hazy dark brown colour, topped with a fluffy tan-coloured head. Yeasty and biscuity aroma with notes of black cherries, black currant, alcohol and caramel with a light sourish undertone. Quite dry flavour of yeast, cherry-skins, dried figs and oily hops. Long finish of orange-peels, yeast and cherry pastilles. A very interesting ale.

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2007
A strong Belgian style ale made in Holland sounds funky, but they pull it off quite well. Strong coppery color and big fluffy head bring a strong sour aroma and a slight alcoholic odor to the nose. The flavor is a little too malty for me, which gives it a barleywine aspect. 9% alcohol is not at all evident in the taste though, just the nose.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2007
Light brown coloured, little carbonation. Large off white head. Fruity alcoholic aroma, with a herby touch. Full creamy body. Finish is strong, alcoholic, little dry near the end.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2007
33 cl bottle, bought in Amsterdam. Brown ale with lost of carbonation, large head. Full, Id say agressive taste, with a sourness kicking you in the teeth before the full malty taste is allowed in the door. This is certanly not for casual drinker, a beer with hair on its chest. Full malt, including some prunes and dates, lots of spice - cinnamon and pepper. I bought three t Ij bottles, the first two were off, but this one was great!
