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.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Aroma of yeast, cobwebs, dried fruit, coriander. Appears a hazy red amber with a huge off-white head that diminishes but lasts. Flavor is bitter and astringent, with lots of yeasty flavors over raisins and an alcohol tinge - peppery in the finish. Palate is dry and leaves the impression of cobwebs. Overall, an interesting brew but not to my taste. My thanks to SoLan for this fine sampling.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2016
Nagy, nagyon tartós hab, sötétbarna szín. Nem túl intenzív malátás illat. Intenzív pörkölt malátás ízvilág, némi fűszerességgel. Az alkoholt egyáltalán nem érezni, kiválóan elrejtették. Utóíze a korty folytatása, ami sokáig kitart. Testes, nehéz sör.

jamesie1857 (1912) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
330ml bottle from Saveur Biére - Dull flat orangey brown body, not much in the way of a head. Nose is barleysugar sweets, a bit of freshly made caramel, brown sugar and a background of dustiness. Taste is sweet, a little sticky, dry at the end, bit of a boozy burn but not too harsh. Very nice, but a bit ugly.

nihtila (2678) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from Saveur Biere. Dark brown. Nose is syrupy sweet, dark fruits, plums. Tastes candy sugar, fruits, toffee, raisins. Imo its more like Belgian strong ale. Great beer anyway.

Maarten1993 (849) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2016
Drank with Rik while watching Castle 13-4-2016. Nice and sweet beer, vanilla-like. Taste is fine, a bit like a candy as well, but also fades quickly.

Barley wine, Oranje/rode kleur. Zachte, bescheiden, timide smaak. Smaakt naar karamel en hop.

McSherman (484) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 8, 2016
Das Struis (Strauss) ist ein Barley Wine der Amsterdamer Brauerei t’Ij (das Ei). Rötlich bräunlich, klar mit beigem Schaum füllt das Bier das Glas. Das Bier ist stark malzig mit Aromen getrockneter Früchte und etwas Schokolade. Der Antrunk ist stark alkoholisch und wärmend. Dabei sehr aromatisch: Schokolade, Karamell, Kandis, Toast. Der Abgang ist röstig bitter. Empfehlenswertes Bier zum Dessert oder für kalte Tage.
