750ml bottle. Thanks to miketd for sharing. Aroma: Oak comes through first with notes of vanilla and toasted nuts. Cinnamon, oranges, bananas, yeast, caramel corn, light floral, and alcohol notes. Appearance: Rusty brown in color and cloudy. Off0white head was full and creamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Very similar to the aroma. Baker’s spices (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg), apples and oranges, bananas and caramel, oak and vanilla, chocolate and nuts. Alcohol is present throughout. Finishes dry with just a hint of tartness. Palate: Medium bodied and creamy. Medium-high carbonation. Pleasant alcohol warmth in back of mouth. Overall: Another great beer from Struise. The best Tripel I’ve had in a while. Great flavors and complexity.

033 bottle. Pours dark copper, white head, low retention. Malty, rich, sweet aroma, dark fruits, raisins, honey. Rich malty taste, burnt caramel, fruity acidity, white grapes, stonefruit, hints of spices. Aftertaste is semi-sweet, almond-like bitterness, tartness, warming alcohol.

Slightly sweet with Christmas spices. The bourbon is definitely present but doesnt overpower. Full-bodied with a holiday bread essence.

dnicolaescu (2329) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 12, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear copper, compacted sediment, diminishing beige head, latent gushing. Pretty strong Bourbon barrel nose, vanilla, masking out the malts and lovely dried fruit if the plain version. But also some musty cheesy notes, as well as cooked corn and mold. Medium sweet, lovely vanilla sugars, subdued alcohol, some woody tannins and a harsh musty bitterness. Seems to be a fine beer, but flawed.

Rugamu (169) - SPAIN - FEB 9, 2017
Diferente cerveza con sabores totalmente nuevos, madera y caramelo, poco lpulo. Duradera en boca. Quizs se nota demasiado el alcohol por poner un punto negativo. Espuma persistente. Algo cara, pero repetira.

TeijoA (43) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2017
33 cl bottle, bottled 04/06/14. Deep ruby colour with a modest beige head, looks quite inviting. Aroma is of toffee, banana, malts and alcohol, very difficult to find the bourbon, at best a small note in the background. Flavour does have some of that bourbon-like lack of nuance immediately in the taste, also in the middle with oak and dark, ripe fruit, finishes finally with malts, ripe fruit. Flavour is just so harsh, just like American bourbon, I guess it does what is intended. In the end, it is pretty good, but not very subtle.

Mooie amberkleurig. Moutige geur met veel gist en alcohol. De smaak leunt aan bij een barleywine; bourbon, gedroogd fruit en lichte karamel. Mooie afdronk met een licht zuur (waarschijnlijk koolzuur) die het zoet fijn countered.

Wixie (497) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2017
Hazy light brown liquid, small head. Strong fruity aroma. Medium body, tiny little bit carbonation. Taste is sour and sweet.

kathouse (1748) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2017
Ive been pleasantly surprised by all the Struise strong ales and this is no exception. Cinnamon, sugar, dates, and warm oak are well blended and entice you to wish youd bottle more. Good stuff.

MonsterMagnet (1322) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle on Christmas day, pours amber with a white head. Quite like a barley wine, with dried fruit, sugar, wood, bourbon, orange and spices. Tsjeeses!

paulvanpelt (580) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2017
Goudbruin bier met off-white kraag die snel verdwijnt. Zoet, licht zuurtje. Aroma van gedroogd fruit, banaan, gist, honing. Licht melig, medium co2, volle body.
