COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A White Oaked Russian Imperial Stout aged with American Oak. Deze zware stout heeft tijdens het lageren (rijpen) een toevoeging gehad van nieuw Amerikaans eikenhout. Hierdoor heeft het bier naast de gebruikelijk Stout smaken als koffie, laurierdrop en chocolade ook vanille en cognac tonen. Het maakt het bier vooral veel zachter en voller van smaak. Vernoemd naar een geuzennaam van de Haarlemmers, naast muggen werden ze vroeger uitgescholden als Houten Haarlemmers. Dit omdat de Haarlemmers bekend stonden als harde werkers die geen tijd hadden voor feestjes.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s medium brown with a small head. Pretty papery, oxidized nose. Knackered roasted grain. Cocoa. Little else, not particularly expressive or inviting. The taste is similarly underwhelming. Cardboard, chocolate-covered apples. Hot wood. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall, I wasn’t keen on this.

MarcoDL (2384) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2013
Imperial stout with strong notes of dark roasted coffee and wood. Yet despite of the dominant tastes, it still has a nice softness. Well balanced and delicious beer.
