In honor of Saint Martin, Jopen annually brews a masterpiece. Saint Martin was the saint of the brewers guild of Harlem. In earlier times artist and craftsmen had to undergo a test of skill. This masterpiece of 2012 is a limited edition. This year we chose a Rye Russian Imperial Stout of 10% for our beer. This thick black beer is full and strong in flavor because of the combination of roasted rye malt and various American hops.

330 ml bottle from De Bierkoning @ Amsterdam. Good beer to finish the month of March. Pours dark brown with a small beige head, leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity, molasses, sweet caramel candy and some refreshing hops. First sip is totally satisfying. It has a small bite of alcohol, molasses, caramelized brown sugar, dark dried plums, fruity roasted flavour and everything finding culmination in a dry, roast hop bitterness.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - FEB 20, 2014
2 year old bottle. Dark black with a red tint and a lasting, sticky, lacy, frothy head. Lovely balanced smell of dark fruit, malt, roast, coffee and chocolate. Medium oily body. Dry. Tastes of roast, dark chocolate, and a ashy finish. For 10% it’s smooth and super easy to drink. A fantastic stout that holds no apologies to anyone.

Une bouteille meilleure avant le 11 août 2015. Une robe brune sur laquelle s’installe une bonne couverture mousseuse. Un nez qui dévoile des parfums de mélasse, de sucre roux, de fruits foncés et de fudge. Des saveurs qui partagent sensiblement les mêmes molécules. Des malts doux, des houblons perdus, une pointe d’alcool fruité et du caramel foncé. En bouche, je découvre un corps bien rond avec un pétillement tranquille et une texture légèrement vineuse. La finale est principalement jouée par les malts fruités. Un impérial qui peut facilement se boire en 4 gorgées.

Bouteille partagée par Patrick. Liquide brun avec une belle mousse beige. Un nez de fruits noirs, de chocolat avec une touche d’alcool. La bouche est de moyenne envergure avec des saveurs de chocolat et de toffee. La finale offre une certaine amertume.

Moolesen (108) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Poors almost black in the glass with a nice brown/dark beige head, which is sligtly creamy. Aroma of coffee and liquerice, very intense. Taste is obviously rich. It is categorized as a stout, but at the long lasting finish I would say it has some quadruppel hints. At the moment of tasting it was 2 years old (jan. 2014), and still tastes fantastic. A really good beer.
