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.

Donker bier met lichte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Aroma van kandijsuiker, drop, zoethout. Heerlijke diepe smaak. Je proeft koffie, mout, donkere chocolade, donker fruit. Lekkere zachte afdronk. Kan zich meten met sommige van de donkere trappistbieren.

Een van de beste geuren, zoniet de beste die ik al ooit geroken heb. En de smaak is navenant, dit is een topbier, voor mij, zoals de rochefort 10 enzo.

Couleur brune sombre, forte mousse beige. Nez de malt noir et fruité (baies et framboise), note caramel . Gout malté noir et caramel avec baies, fruits noirs, framboises et note de mures. Bon corps onctueux. Fin fruits noirs et caramel. Vraiment pas mal, bien onctueuse et buvable.

MMR (675) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2015
It was an enormous treat to drink this on room-temperature. It has a nice chocolate-like, somewhat brandy-like aroma and some dried fruits. Drank it on Pilsener-temperature the other day and this was all nowhere to be found.

Vells (1338) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - OCT 11, 2015
Quite weak for barley wine, yet decent. Mostly malty, some caramel, touch of yeast, dried fruits, bit pine, light floral hops. Moderate sweet with light bitterness. Decent, but nothing fancy

mandaritto (161) - LATVIA - OCT 11, 2015
What I like about this brew is that it is not so sweet as other barley wines. Some hints of toffee, coffee and raisins. Still barley wine is not my style, but decent. ABV is also decent :D
