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)

Clear purple brown beer, big creamy yellow to beige head, little stable. Aroma: lots of banana, more banana. Is this a La Trappe? Or made with La Trappe yeast? MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: raisin bread, very ripe banana, caramel, sugary. Aftertaste: caramel, toast, lots of banana, yeast, sugary, little hoppy, some chocolate and mocha flavours.

Color is black with a beige head. Smell sweet and fresh hay. Taste of roasted malt and licorice. Unfortunately therfore it is missing some body. Overall not bad.

Almost black body without much of a head. Port wine notes, woody, red berries and roasted malts. Simple taste start with dark sugar notes, middle becomes more complex and ends bitter. Lasting licorice root ending. Decent brew, bit not quite my kind of beer. (33cl bottle traded with Rob, thanks!)

Bottle @ home. Dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, alcohol, licorice, candy sugar and some spices. Flavor is warming fruity, quite spicy, bitter and quite sweet. Intense brew.

MrHangover (3488) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a creamy, light tanned head. Aroma is boozy, syrupy, sugary and has heavy molasses and licorice, which return flavor. Very sweet in the flavor and heavy alcoholic. Great to sip, full bodied and flavored. Good beer, but overly sweet.

Borresteijn (5570) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Deep dark brown colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet, pear drups or raspberry sweets, much like La Trappe Quadrupel imo, alcohol, tiny hint of bay leaf. Flavour is sweet, alcoholic, pear drups, bay leaf, burnt caramel, liquorice, bitter alcoholic finish with some bay leaf. Medium-bodied. Not much noticed of the promised dry-hopping. Nice enough beer, lacks a bit of depth imo.

Very dark brown with decent, lasting head. Aroma has a touch of alcohol and some liquorice. There’s a background dry fruitiness to the beer but the liquorice sweetness dominates. There’s some bay leaf too. Not as good as last years version.
