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.

Nose of cereals, alcohol, toffee and milk Fine bubbles Medium liquorous body with a liquorous body. A bit sickening to my taste due to the liquorous part, but quite balanced still.

Trolleo (1524) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 30, 2017
Little bit sour at first, caramel, heavy maltiness, pretty boozy, toffee, raisin, little bit of corn. Clear ruby to coppery color, small off-white to light brown head. Taste is mostly caramel, pretty sweet, some alcohol but not too much, dried fruit, some figs, chocolate, brown caramelized sugar. Medium to medium-full body, bit creamy, soft carbonated. Complex, maybe some off-balanced sweetness, still very good.

PlutonowyMan (749) - POLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Barwa brunatno rubinowa, piana be?owa, ?rednio wysoka i raczej nietrwa?a. Redukuje si? do cieniutkiego pier?cienia. Aromat karmelowy, s?odowy, s? nuty ?wie?ego ciasta, wanilii, w tle rodzynki i kurz. Smak: s?odowo??, "zborzowy kurz", rodzynki i suszone, ciemne owoce, akcenty ciasta z wanili?. Goryczka pojawia si? na finiszu, jest sucha, uwydatnia nuty mokrego drewna. Idealnie schowany alkohol, nasycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego, sprawdza si? idealnie.
