Too sweet, almost cloying. Pannepot has much better balance and overall flavor.

Got this in a tulip glass, Washington D.C.
Smell: very sweet, dark fruit smell, however very strong molasses smell.
Taste: Some prunes, cherry, dark fruit taste. Very strong molasses taste also. Sweet. Some maltiness. Strong hint of the high alcohol %
Feel: Luscious, chewy and viscous. Lots of aftertaste, which is great.
A very interesting quad. Not similar to other quad, which to me is either dominantly dark fruit or chocolaty. Not unlike a Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock. Very sweet, and served well as a dessert glass.

12 oz 2012 vintage bottle poured on 03/02/2015. Bought at Coaltrain for 6.99.

Pours a murky flat brown under one finger of light tan head. Not special looking but I know better than to judge any beer from De Struise by the way it looks.

Remarkable aroma of raisins cooked in a concord grape jam reduction. A little swirl brings up caramel sauce, a touch of butterscotch, a something like the sweet aroma of warm mulch.

Surprisingly mellow in flavor. Some moderately oxidized malts (subdued but enjoyable) and the aged-out esters from the yest give it an almost nutty flavor. Not as sweet as the aroma made me expect, but pleasantly balanced. Relatively low bitterness. A slight twang of not so enjoyable oxidation makes an appearance near the end of the flavor.

Already thinning, this is not a beer for long aging. I have never seen it in any local store until the last month, so this is the newest vintage I can buy. I do believe it would be much better "fresh". It seems the last 3 years have be a little rough. Perhaps storage conditions were sub-par, there is no way to know. The original quality of this beer shows through however.
