Jopen Houten Haarlemmer #w is een Russian Imperial Stout gebrouwen met geroosterde rogge- en tarwe-mout. Dit bijna zwarte bier heeft na de gisting nog extra gerijpt op Simcoe en Glacier hop en nieuw Amerikaan Eikenhout. Hierdoor heeft het bier een aroma van vanille, eikenhout, koffie en fruittonen. In de smaak overheersen de gebrande mout-smaken die doen denken aan espresso en laurierdrop, vanille en een fruitig gebrande bitterheid. Drink dit bier niet te koud (4-12 graden). Houten Haarlemmer is de bijnaam van de Haarlemmers.

Bottle provided by Borresteijn. Pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is first fruit drop sweet with vanilla notes. Then comes the roast and chocolate. The flavor is deep roasted with notes of chocolate, wood, oat and licorice. Long roasted finish. Great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. WOW. So many flavours in there. On the nose, Spices, Fruits, dark chocolate, and most of all alcohol! On the tongue, Initial spices mix with the alcohol going up your nose and burning almost! Then comes dark, winter fruits, then vanilla, then coffee, then right at the end an extremely high quality dark chocolate. Absolutely top drawer!

mgajdaczewa (688) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
W aromacie sporo czekolady, kremowo kawowy z lekką nutą kwasu chlebowego, lekka nuta likierowa połączona z alkoholem. W smaku wytrawne, wyraźna kawa zbożowa, kakao, gładko się pije, finisz kawowo - kakaowy, długi. Wyraźna wanilia w posmaku. Bardzo fajny ris, warto go leżakować.

Oily beer, with a sweetish taste of roasted malt, cacao and licorice. Aftertaste of oak and vanilla. Bit too flat.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
(Bottle, Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 26 July 2013) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of oak wood, dark chocolate, soy sauce, liquorice and a slight sourness (probably from tannin in the new oak wood). Malty, roasted taste with espresso, black rye bread, dark chocolate, oak wood and a certain roasty bitterness. The tannin doesn’t come through as much on the palate. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite complex and tasty. Very nice.
