COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Color is very dark brown, looks like strong coffee, it has small nice creamy head. Aroma is like chocolate cake, cream, coffee, lactose, nuts and a bit alcohol. Taste is like coffee, bitter, not sweet as I was expecting. Overall not as good as I was expecting, the aroma is better then the taste.

androman (345) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Melger’s, Haarlem. Dark brown color, long standing medium brownish head with excellent lacing. Aroma coffee lqueur, roasted malt, dark chocolate, red wine, licorice, soy sauce, at the end more roasty feel appears. Alcohol is slightly present. Taste light sweetness, heavy bitterness. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, medum lasting roasted bitter finish. Simply and delicious, takes some time to drink, I can’t recognise rye.

Na de Jopen meesterstuk 2011 hoopte ik op een beter resultaat maar helaas bleek dit ook valse hoop.

Zo is in mijn ogen craft beer bedoelt. Sterk qua smaak, maar niet te. Alcohol is niet sterk aanwezig in de smaak

Mooie donker bruine kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt koffie, vanille en crème. Smaakt koffie, vanille, iets gebrand. Iets bittere afdronk.
