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.

dnstone (2645) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Sweet, slight barrel-funk aroma. Murkey amber color with excellent soft off-white head that lasts. Moderately sweet, lactic hints with a dry finish that leaves you thirsting for another sip. Really an excellent and surprisingly complex beer.

ALIBALI (671) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
Good & Sweet. Easy to drink, with a malty bitterness at the end. In der Nase viel säuerlich beerige Würzaromen. Und diese kehren dann auch im Trunk, nachdem sich der Schaum gelichtet hat, wieder zurück. Nett and very british. 0,33l Bottle direkt from the Brewery in Ämsterdamned. Ca.2,50€.

Echon (366) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2016
Dark mahogany. Rich, slightly vinous, aroma with ripe fruit and some alcohol. The flavour follows the aroma, with a solid malt profile and somewhat pungent spicy notes. Sweetish taste with light bitterness. Medium body. Overall, a pretty decent barley wine with a good aroma. Not as rich and complex as one would expect from a beer of this style, and a bit too pungent.

PunkBunny (17) - Benoni, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours dark amber. Very low head that disappears, with lacing on the sides. Aroma: Dark fruit and sweet malt smell. Taste: Slight caramel, dark fruit, prune. Alcohol medium. Smooth mouthfeel. Some bitterness at the back of the throat. Overall, well balanced and very nice.

sjogro (2685) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2016 Bottle at home. Clear dark brown with red hue. Thin creme head. Sweet barley malt, prune, chestnuts, quite a fierce alcoholic note. Big sweet and some tea leaf dry bitterness, and a lost grain of salt. Over medium body, low carbonation. Alcoholic kick is pretty strong and makes the otherwise soft carbonation come out a bit spikey. Bittersweet maple syrup finish.

Deonis (21) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 2, 2016
Dark, without foam, a bit of sourness and sweetness, is a pleasant bitterness in taste and aftertaste sweet can be smaller recommend
