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.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2016 Aroma: chocolate biscuit, caramel, roasted coffee ; Appearance: very dark brown with very small tan head ; Taste: medium sweetness, mildly bitter ; Palate: full body, minimal aftertaste. Overall a very good barley wine. But "Lancelot Samain 11.1" is cheaper and almost exactly similar, and very easily found in my home town. So yes this beer is awesome, but I will go for the local cheaper equivalent.

Hopmaestro (1539) - rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2016
Aroma is malty and sweet with images of dried fruits, caramel, christmas candy and raisins swirling around in my head. Taste is smooth and sweet, mild dark fruit notes, soothing sweetness and fainted flowers. A subtle warming effect from the alcohol in the end. Even if I want to say that this one is a little too classical and "English", I cant deny the fact that it was a really good barley wine.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 niby strus, a jednak nie strus... niemniej: dosc intensywne aromaty suszonych i kandyzyowanych owocow (rodzynki, figi, sliwki), sporo przyprawowosci (jakbym mial nazwac: imbir i gozdziki) - ewidentne belgijskie klimaty, jakies przejrzale jasne owoce, jakis miod gryczany, nieco ziolowosci. w ustach niemalo ciala, choc wyklejajace czy bardzo geste w porownaniu z zawodnikami wagi ciezkiej a la Weer & wind to nie jest. Slodkawe. powtorka z aromatow. dosc pijalne. dosc dlugie, przyprawowo-ziolowe posmaki. goryczka niewysoka acz obecna. Sumarycznie: niezle, ciekawe, cos pomiedzy brytolskim barley wine a ciemnym belgiem z nalecialosciami (jak dla mnie: az za duzymi nalecialosciami) swiatecznego... pozdrowy bjcpowcy ;)

ForlornHope (470) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Dark red-brown in colour with a small, off-white head. Aroma: figs, prunes, roast malt, cocoa and herbal hop. Sweet to start with a lot of bitterness to follow. Flavours of dark fruit, minty herbal hop, chocolate and coffee grounds. Smooth and drinkable, it hides its strength well and has a long, dry finish. Very good.
