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.

outta the bottle at the t’IJ..last beer before we moved on so i had to work kwik, kicked the panter...I was looking forward to this. Pours a light dark brown but not really see through. nice aroma. great smooth first sip. a mellow alcohlic brew that goes down very easily; and complex too.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2006
[Sampled in 2004 with "Den blå Hund."] Bad that this beer cannot be found in dk anymore. Great looking and an aroma of explotions of fruits and some spices. This continues in the flavor where it all is handled by some hoppiness. It could be a christmasbeer

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Murky, chunky, amber/brown topped by a small, foamy, tan cap. Flavor and aroma: funky, fruity, sour, yeasty, whole grain bread. Medium/full body, well carbonated. Unique, tasty.

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Pours opaque, dense mahogany...pretty. Heavy, primal aromas of maple, oak, toffee and earth. Dried cherries and peaches swimming in caramel and scotch, with an understated sour finish, when its rich and syrupy mouthfeel becomes immediately dry and bitter. A wild, ancient animal of a beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2006
From the bottle pours darker copper brown, lots of little creatures floating around, with a tall strong white head. Aroma was sweet and sour, light hoppy and sweet fruity. Cherry and chocolate flavors show in the rich malts, some wild yeast give it a dry earthy qualty with a touch of sourness. Very dry spicy finish. Very enjoyable new take on "barleywine".

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2006
Smells kriek! Lots of cherry and sourness. Hazy brown, thick brown head. Latent sourness in the taste, short finish. Not that good after all.

gnoff (8746) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2006
(33 cl bottle at The Rover, Göteborg) Sour scent, like a lambic but not as complex. Shady brown color, big lasting tan head. Spicy taste, low bitterness. Warming alcohol.
