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.

Dry, chalky aroma with strong molasses notes. Served in a semi-transparent plastic cup. Opaque. Dark brown. Off-white head. Very good Belgian strong ale flavor. Wonderful, actually. Would buy again.

I really liked this one. Fruity, creamy, a little bit of dryness, some sour taste as well.

Dense deep red appearance, thick head formation. Sweet, strong black cherry aroma, mild yoghurty cheesiness, quite intriguing. Smooth creamy black cherry flavor, overlapped by a dry yeastiness. Heavy bitterness throughout, maybe a little too much so.

kujo9 (1092) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Mohogany brown w/ a short lived light beige head, probably from alcohol. Toasty & caramel malt, intense fruitiness like a grape fruit rollup; light clove spicy yeast & perfumey alcohol. Toasty malt flavor, low clove flavor from the yeast, well balanced but malt flavored. Raisin and plum fruit & sugary sweetness. Caramel in between all that. Highly carbonated, medium body, warming alcohol, but very smooth. Very tasty & fruity. More so than the other beers Ive had from this brewery. I wish I could get my hands on more from this place!!!

Murky reddish brown brew.Nose is complex,toffee candy bar and a plum fruit note also.Flavor at first turned me off until I let this sit for awhile a warm up.The sweetness of the toffee and fruit came in big once this warmed a little.Still a little sour on the palate.

Strong caramel in aroma, even a bit of chocolate. Dark brown with a medium head. Full bodied and smooth. Sweet caramel with dark fruits. Also slightly citric and yeasty. Nice.

Hazy dark amber colored, creamy off-white head. Rosted malt and spices dominates the aroma with fruity and citrusy tones underneath. Flavor is extremely sweet fruity and orangy. Notes of plum, yeast and hay. Strange and different and a little cloying in the long run, still tasty.

Bottle. Sticky caramel and quite yeasty. Quite a lot of alcohol showing, definitely on the yeasty side of things, perhaps a bit too much so.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled at Microbar, Battersea. Described as smelling like "Blue cheese and Christmas pudding", and that is actually right! Very cheesy nose. This was not detected when tasted. A fine dark brown beer, with a smallish white head. Full bodied, fairly sweet. Yeastiness and some hops delevop later.

Dark brown colour, with a garnet tinge. Malty, with some spice, stewed fruit and chocolate accents, but rather sweet. A bit too sweet for me, but still flavoursome and reasonably palatable. Bottled at St Albans Beer Festival.
