COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AssKicker (653) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Couleur brune/rouille. Mousse beige qui tient bien. Nez vineux un peu acidulé, un peu caramel. Grosse rondeur en bouche, très liquoreuse, c'est épais ! Notes de toffee assez importante, tout comme la réglisse qui arrive en renfort, avec un peu de datte et de Madère. Pas mal sucré également. L'alcool fini également par se faire sentir. Assez bourrin pour un Barley Wine, ça sature assez vite. En fait ça se prétend d'inspiration anglaise, mais ça sonne surtout très belge...
