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.

Nope geen vrienden mee. Ik gok op een slecht exemplaar (batch 3/2016 080 02094). Wat muffe geur en smaak die snel weg is, heel vlak. Bittere nasmaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Damian. Rich malty aroma, grapes, raisins, dried fruits. Burnt sugar, light chocolate. Dark brown colour and a stable off-white head. Taste does the aroma justice. Sweetish fruity beginning slowly turning into a dry chocolatey slightly roasted finish. Toasted, burnt sugar. Very good.

Nogal een donker bier, weinig of geen schuimkraag. Wel zeer lekker bier. Traag te drinken.

vincentvega72 (159) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2015
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.
