Ter ere van Sint Maarten brouwt Jopen jaarlijks een Meesterstuk. Sint Maarten was de beschermheilige van het Haarlemse brouwersgilde. In vroeger tijden moesten kunstenaars en ambachtslieden een proef van bekwaamheid leveren. Dit Meesterstuk 2013is in gelimiteerde oplage uitgebracht. Als bier is dit jaar gekozen voor een Quadruppel type gebrouwen met donkere tarwemout en Nieuw Zeelandse hopsoorten. Water, pilsmout, tarwemout, caramout, kandijsuiker, Pacific Jade en East Kent Golding (ketelhop) en Simcoe en Nelson Sauvin hop (dry hopping)

minutemat (4275) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
330ml bottle, from trade with MonsterMagnet. Many thanks! Pours extremely dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is rich liquorice and molasses. Taste is bursting with rich dark fruits, figs, raisins, candi sugar, caramel and a hint of nutmeg and spice. This really is a flavoursome little beast, the ageing seems to have matured it beautifully. Many thanks to MrMagnet for sending me this.

PotjeBier (2718) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home (cellar cleanup). Black color. Beige/light brown head, reasonable retention. Aroma’s: fruit candies, toffee. Same retronasal, with additionally alcohol. Flavor is moderate sweet, drop, (laurel/bay leaves) and fruit candies. Medium bodied. Long finish without any new flavors. Nice, but I shouldn’t have kept it so long.

Bottle, bb 11-2013, bottled 11-2012. Pours dark ruby brown with a tan head. Aroma: rye bread, dark fruit, very spicy. Taste: raisins, rye, vanilla fudge, figs, prunes, candy sugar, molasses, nutmeg, clove, bay leaf, almond. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet, with a light-medium bitterness, warming (boozy), nice long lasting spicy finish. Excellent! Perhaps aging served it well?

GSAP (693) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Stevig grossiert deze quadrupel in drop, chocolade, booze en ingemaakt fruit. Aroma is likeur, kersen en een kruidige toets. Geen kraag, donker bruin-zwart. Winterbier (waarom drink ik dit met 27 graden?)

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from Bierkoning, thanks! Aroma of a Dutch doppelbock. Lots of prunes, some chocolate, licorice, nuts and perfumy alcohol. It tastes better than it smells, with the licorice coming to the fore, nicely underlined by the chewyness of this beer. Adding sweetness, some chocolate, a pinch of nuts and alcohol to the mix, there you have it - a nicely composed, though not really impressive quad, as far as I am concerned.
