dandeman (886) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Un nez aux accents de figues, de dattes, de raisins secs, de caramel. Superbe complexit. De couleur brune ple, trs voile. Une belle mousse crmeuse, paisse et persistante. En bouche, les aspects sucrs prdominent avec les fruits noirs, les notes de crme brle ainsi que les accents de crales. La texture est paisse, liquoreuse, onctueuse. Une bire qui, chaque gorge, me fait dire wow

puren (836) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Prezentacja:
bardzo ciemny bursztyn, brąz, zmętnione, piana bardzo obfita, o średnich okach, szybciutko opada do kołnierza, słabo zdobi szkło;
Aromat:
niezbyt intensywny, kompot z suszonych owocw, wiśnie w kompocie, brzoskwinie, bardzo delikatny alkohol;
Odczucie:
ciało średnie ku wysokiemu, kremowe, wysokie nasycenie, rośnie w ustach;
Smak:
ciężko do zdefiniowania, śliwki w słodkiej mlecznej czekoladzie, czereśnie, toffi, nutka alkoholu;
Oglnie:
niezłe, ale bez szaleństw, duży plus za słabo wyczuwalny alkohol.

Struise beers are a mystery. You never know if youll find a wonderful beer or a good but not the height of fantantiques beers that occasionally you are. This is one of those who had not tasted; a powerful strong ale with a very correct treatment of the alcohol, perhaps too ditecte and lack of nuances. That if a good beer again. Maybe too young

Shark_Pants (662) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2015
2013 vintage. Rich red-amber colour with generous creamy beige head. Sweet aromas of toffee, port wine, plums, belgian yeast and oak. The taste has a lot of port notes, cherry, toffee, oak tannins, strong grassy hop bitterness and dryness, but still a lingering sweetness in the finish. Full bodied. Pretty good but a bit too much residual sweetness.

Red amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of wood, port, spices, citrus, and alcohol. Taste of sweeter port, spices, citrus, vanilla, wood, and booze in the finish.

Franckg (1386) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Bouteille date de 2011, bue aprs 4 ans. Liquide brun tirant sur le orang, trs trouble avec un pais col de mousse blanchtre persistant. Armes de caramel, fleur de sel, sucre dorge, bleuets et raisins confits. En bouche, un bon got de sucre dorge et de baies envahit le palais. Le houblon perce un peu par ses effluves de pamplemousse rose. Les saveurs du porto se font sentir rapidement, alors que les tanins du raisin ainsi que son sucre fondent dans la bouche. On se rapproche beaucoup du vin dorge anglais mais la touche de Porto en finale donne une belle dimension au produit. Leffervescence est juste point, le liquide a une texture tout de mme paisse et une belle rondeur. Manque un peu de complexit par contre. Le haut taux dalcool ne parat aucunement.

Icedwarf (1392) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Lichtbruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en krachtig, fruitig aarbei en bessen en iets van grapefruit. Deze versie is wat mij betreft vele malen beter dan de Bourbon versie. Erg goed.
