COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

Very tasty, very thick. Both in terms of taste and mouthfeel. Licorice dominates this black beer, but there is some mild coffee flavoring as well. Picked this up at ABC beer in the Hague, 2013.

Rich quadrupel with a body of sweet caramalt with chocolate and roasted coffee. The hops give the beer a nice bitter and fruity finish. Especially the Nelson Sauvin is great.

Bottled. Dark brown with red tints, lace. Juicy dreid fruit and treacle nose, raisins, cola. Sweet, fruity flavor with raisins, chocolate, treacle, and a light fruity tang. Full and silky. Would like to age this for a few years then try again. Still young, and the candi sugar is a bit too evident.

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2013
12oz bottle via Summer Secret Santa 2013. Pours a slightly viscous, mahogany amber with some thin, creamy, slightly off white head. Nose has a ton of dried fruit and spice, prunes, raisins, dates, boozy, dark rum, ripe banana, clove, a little nail polish remover. Flavor is very boozy, a little hot, some rum, some sticky pineapple, clove, lots of raisin and date, some candy sugar, whole cloves, a little bubblegum. Full, sticky finish. Not bad, but could have used 12-24months in the bottle to really smooth out.

Mistig en mahonie van kleur, met kleine, maar blijvende mokka schuimkraag. Aroma vooral van gebrande mouten, maar ook koffie, chocolade, banaan. Smaak is medium bitter, medium zoet. Wordt wat droger in de nasmaak. Volle body, voelt ook vol aan in de mond. Erg lekker bier, jammer van de beperkte oplage.

Bottle provided by Borresteijn. Thanks a lot! Pours brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is ripe fruit and brown sugar with notes of spices and chocolate caramel. The flavor is deep malty and spicy with ripe fruits and some alcohol in the finish. Very nice attempt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
