4/3/2011 6:19:23 AM Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark brown amber body with huge head with tan lining. Nose of burned malts, caramel. Taste of toffee, malts, some fruit notes. Slightest hint of sour. Really nice and lively beer. Goes down well. wazzawazza (60) - Geraldton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2015
Scent is strong but sweet. Solid head with some staying power, with the taste of the heavens. An absolute winner. One in the cellar for next year. markextrae (4485) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2015
33cl bottle found in a beerstore recently, couldn’t belive my eyes, how is this now... poured a murky brown colour with a off head. notes of burned caramel, overriped fruits, belgian yeast, herbal tea notes, lot’s of sweet notes coming true, don’t think that was this way back in the day, some toffee, pretty nice still.. but can’t camprae it with a fresh version Bierridder_S (1120) - BELGIUM - APR 16, 2015
15/04/2015 @home. 33cl bottle from a trade (good until 03/2013)
Hazy light brown colour with small head. Aroma : bitter hops, sweetness, madeira. Taste : hops, light peppery, some vanilla, madeira, sweet. Strange, a few months ago I had another and that one was very bitter and peppery, this time it was way sweeter

33cl bottle from 2009. Hazy golden pour, gushed (infected)... no problem because it offers a rich hoppy scotch ale-ish taste with grape skin aftertaste. Viscosity like barley wine. Aromas of hops, tannins, vinous notes, grapes, vanilla, scotch and some booze. Nice to go back to the Struise past! PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2014

APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head.
NOSE: little oxidated, madeira.
TASTE: little oxidated, madeira, sweet, white chocolate, peppery, very boozy actually!
