Great quad that was selled as a barley wine =P
Has a nice dark brown color and a moka foam, not very large.
Smell is really complex, malty with tones of dried fruits, cherry, and also almond liquor.
Taste is similar with some hops in the end. Alcohol is perceptible in a nice way.
Feel is really good, the beer have body and carbonation at levels lower than quads usually do.

Appearance - Served on tap, the beer was a murky brown color with few bubbles near the top.

Smell - The dark fruits come of the aroma. The stickiness actually comes through in the smell.

Taste - In the initial taste, I detect sweet raisins, prunes, and sweet malts. The is a certain nuttiness that collaborates with bread notes. Some of the sweetness dries up in the aftertaste, but sweet fruits linger.

Mouthfeel - Sticky would be a good word to describe the mouthfeel. The taste sticks to the tongue, allowing the taste to last.

Overall - This is a very underappreciate beer in the world of DIPAs and barrel aged stouts. It is a great beer for a cold night.

Poured like good lovin'. Tastes like a chutney of raisins, dates, and figs that had previously soaked in a vat of red wine. The texture of this beer was lovely as well.

Served in a chalice-shaped glass. Bottle indicates it's a 2014.

The head is big, fluffy and shows good persistence. The head is a dark khaki. The body looks black but hints of lightness convince me this is probably more of a deep dark brown brew. No matter the color, it's a gorgeous-looking brew. 5

I smell Dr. Pepper or root beer initially, a blend of syrupy sweetness and sweeter spice. A floral aroma, dark fruit and dark chocolate also lurk within. Oak and vanilla and a toasted smell linger on the finish. 4.25

Tastes like what I was smelling. Tart dark cherries, a floral bouquet, cola-like spice and sweetness, and notes of dark chocolate. The finish reminds me of bourbon with oak and vanilla lingering like a shot of said booze. 4.25

The mouthfeel is where I must ding this particular version a bit. It's thinner than a quad or Belgian dark should be and is a tad light in carbonation. The hint of tartness and spice and sweetness work well together so that's a plus. 3.75

Tasty but I've liked other years better.

2011 vintage

Dark brown pour with a macchiato thick crème foam. Scents of freshly baked cake, raisins, and dates hit the nose. Taste is sweet and warming, with a rich yeasty finish.

This quad has a thickness which combined with the potency makes it a true sipping beer. This is just a notch below the top quads out there. A truly great beer from Struise.
