2009 cask strength bottle, dark chesnut colour. Nose of big earthy leather caramel from the pannepot reserva, cherries, leather, metallic notes, vineous Porto notes, blue cheese, nothing like a cask strength. Back blended again? Just like all of their regular beers. It’s like all of their new beers.

Johnstledger8 (1190) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle. Pours an opaque murky dark brown with a fading beige bubbly head. Aroma is of vinegar, red fruits, caramel, tart, hint of soy sauce, earthy. Taste is of balsamic vinegar, dark fruits, figs, nuts, tart, red fruits, berries, caramel. Oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

fkoolen (1210) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 Bottle at home, 2009 ed, bottled 18/02/16. Pours a beautiful ruby, very dark brown colour topped by a slim but stable, creamy beige head. Flemish sour/Aardmonnik notes immediately fill the nostrils, with notes of cherry, red wine, balsamico. Taste is more on the Pannepot side of things with quad dried (figs, plums) fruits and berries, red wine/barrel, roasted malty caramel and espresso, then a nuanced cherry sour note kicks in to round the finish of fruity and a little bit funky. Incredible balance. Lingering cherry fruity, quad malty aftertaste. Firm body, low carbonation. Liked the Aardmonnik better but an incredible beer.

Leighton’s 20K at his posh new gaff! Thanks to Dave and Matteo. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and has modest fine carbonation. Mild vinegar and tangy fruits. A little malt sweetness provides some relief. Bare whisper of vanilla. Bitterish finish. Not digging the vinegar here.

St David’s Day 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s 20K. Many congrats! As ’Struise Aardnon / Earthnun 2009 Cask Strength’. Big thanks to team Matteo-Dave. Dark brown, pretty much opaque in this light, foamy light brown head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is fruit n nut chocolate, plummy, raisin. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is rum n raisin, plum, spicy and woody in the finish, light acidity, some of the apple esters I’ve got from other Struise beers but not so prevalent. Nice. (3.9)

Christos (5741) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2017
(Struise Aardnon / Earthnun) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 8%, vintage 2009 Black coloured body, small beige head on top with good density and retention. Aroma of dark fruits, figs, molasses, light red fruits too. Taste is mildly sour, with red fruits, berries, dark fruits too, light caramel, wine notes. Medium body, good carbonation, slightly tart on the palate. Quite good but taking the price into account, I expected much more.

Olo13 (244) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Great beer, a lot of dried fruits in aroma and taste. Some sourness, very much like quadrupel. Great beer
