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.

Cloudy brown beer, decent cream coloured head. Sweet water chesnuts nose with a trace of fruit. Crisp palate turning softer. Taste follows the nose - sweet water chesnuts and a little fruit salad sweets. Minerals. Carbonated bit in the finish.

cgarvieuk (24465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle at home ... foamed up a bit so very sedimenty... hazy brown ... nice sweet malt toffee and laden fruit with just a little yeastyness in its nose ... bready fruity flavours ... with a slight tart background ... quite soft .... very bready finnish... low bitterness but a little drying
