Zeer donkere kleur. De geur doet je vermoeden dat het een bitter biertje is, maar de smaak is juist erg zacht.

You need to take a big gulp of it to get the full flavor of the beer but it is again a nice one. The darker, almost ryelike, flavor makes it very deep. Well done Jopen. Bottle from de Mitra in Mijdrecht.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from SInterklaas... Dark brown with a thin dense beige head. Caramel aroma with hints of vanilla and some coffee. Taste is very alcoholic sweet, maybe a bit too much, but underneath that is a rich palette of coffee, molasses, fruits and hops. A good beer but a bit overwhelming due to the dominant alcohol burn. Although a completely different beer I liked the Meesterstuk 2012 way better.
