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)

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

Dark brown, small beige head. Strong and tastefull quadrupel. Big full body and nice carbonation. Taste is a heavy caramel malty base with dark dried fruits like raisins and dates and some hints of barrel aging like wood. Has some dry earthiness as well. Great beer!

33cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through. Medium to full sized off-white to beige head. Smell malts, some hops, sweetness, some fruits, some alcohol and wood. Taste malts, caramel, toasted malts, alcohol, wood, sweetness. Lovely beer! Absolutely delicious, very well balanced. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Completely blown away, bottle costed 1,99euro. Wtf!

(bottle) pours a clear darkest ruby colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of strawberries, earth, brown sugar and figs, with a hint of cappuccino and milk chocolate. flavour is mostly strawberries, figs and rose oil, quite perfumed, with a subtle buscuitiness, brown sugar, caramel and a light alcoholic burn in the finish. medium to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

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.

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.

2012 really was a masterpiece, so I expected a lot from this one... it turned out to be a bit disapointing. Idea is okay, a extra hopped quad, but the hops don’t really convince... it’s a bit too sweet with hints of caramel and dried fruits, some alcohol... very well drinkable but never really special...
