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.

Dorwart (2468) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Good sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Sweet and sour notes jump out in the aroma. Very fruity, with some sour grapes, light spices and wet oak. Color is a cloudy dark copper brown. Medium bodied and very warming. Light malts, spices and yeast. Sourness is not very apparent in the flavor. Big alcohol presence. I would guess more that 9%. Finishes pretty clean and warm with a lingering spicyness. Pretty good and very easy drinking.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 Damn my laptop. Typed in a whole fucking review and the overly sensitive mouse area thought I wanted to go back. Fuck my laptop. Great beer. Re-rate Way too thick and cloying for my taste now. Ill leave my rating as is, but if I were scoring this today it would be more like a 3.1 or maybe a 3.2.

pubbe (493) - Hjbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy amber with orange hue. A lot of fruit esthers, some apples and yeast in the flavor. Slightly sweet malt and a lot of acids in the flavor. Oily on the palate. Long lasting finish. Alcohol is somewhat dominating in this beer though.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from lowlander. Pretty deep red-amber with a swollen off white head that faded to a good half inch of dense cream head, leaving a perfect lace. Strong nose of vanilla, oak, walnut, tangerine and some caramel. Taste is a let down after such a fantastic aroma - light spice, nuts, apple, fig and dates. Slightly metallic finish. Creamy, full body. Too watery in the taste, but otherwise a top bew.

thewolf (11652) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark, slightly muddy amber. Head is yellowish white, a tad foamy and quite big. Stunning aroma! Lots of red apples, some caramel, vanilla and candy sugar. Oily mouthfeel. Very nice flavours - lots of spices. Vanilla again, ginger, pepper, oak, caramel and much more. Quite vinious as well. Well-rounded, powerful and great. Still sweet in general.
