Herbs, Herbs and Herbs is what makes this beer. It’s a dark brown coloured beer with a thin head and medium carbonation. It lacks the typical Jopen taste (wich is nice to not have in at least one of their beers). The herbal taste makes this beer comparible to lets say a Jägermeister or a (as we call it in holland) Kruidenbitter and even (dare I say it) cough syrop. Served on the right temperature this gives a really nice beer to enjoy after a meal. One of my favorite Jopen Beers.

Nez légèrement fruité et des arômes un peu de café au lait... En bouche elle est vraiment très douce on ressent encore le café au lait... Légèrement sucré.. Avec une densité de gaz moyen. Bu peut-être un peu trop chaude :-/

33cl Bottle from local nightshop Kokkes (A'dam Zuid). Pours brown red with a beige head, which diminishes quickly. Aromas of bread, raisins, herbs, dark berries. Flavors of licorice, oats, cloves and alcohol. Medium body, with a spicy and slightly sweet aftertaste. Kind of unique.

Bottle. Nice deep amber colour with thick beige head. Sweet/sour aroma. Taste is very herbal, sweet and amazingly smooth, it is indeed warming as the label says. Lingering herbal aftertaste. Very distinct beer in a good way.

Weird overly herbal feel to it, very much grassy, but sweet at the same time. a lot of amber malt. Interesting, but hard to drink a lot of.

Nice red glow in the glass. This beer is round and full. Taste like malt and coffee and little sweet. Not for every day.
