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)

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!

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.

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!

Brewed once a year as a tribute to Sint Martin, protector of the brewer’s guild in Haarlem. The last two years they brewed an RIS, while this year they chose to brew a quadrupel, on a limited quality enough for 7500 bottles. 330 ml bottle, at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 10%. Bottle 5784/7500 if that says something. Pours a very dark brown coloured beer with one finger of beuge head sitting on top. Good retention, it could be better.Good lacing left around the glass. Very nice aroma, veery frutiy and not like any quadrupel I have had. Hints of green apples, bananas, even refreshing notes of ripe melon, combine to create a fantastic aroma. Very nice taste too, quite fruity as well, only once again with all the different fruits you are used to getting in a quadrupel. Alcohol is not traceable on the taste but it sures gives a warrming feeling even from the first sip. Nice vanila notes as well, while the aftertaste is surely fruity. Mildly bitter, but all in all a great taste. Medium thick body, good carbonation that offers just a tiny bite on the tongue. Dry and sort of sticky at the same time on the palate. Overall this was a great beer, highly recommended.

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.

(Drinking date: 19th January 2014) It is a really dark/black beer where no light shines through. It has a creamy, beige layer of foam, but that reduces quickly to a thin layer. The aroma is really delicious. You smell raisins, other ripe dried fruit, salted liqorice and sweet chocolate (pure and milk chocolate). Also in the back you smell a bit of alcohol. When I had the first sip, it dissapointed me a bit. I expected a really round, full beer, but instead it was a bit watery, with a lot of carbonation. The first thing you taste is the alcohol. Then a sweetness, which is followed by a bitter and sweet taste at the same time. The beer also has a bit of a fruity taste, really nice. The sweetness/fruitiness comes from the fruitiness of the hops. The sweetiness also reminds me of sweet liqorice. The bitterness comes from the burned/roasted malt. I really enjoy the taste! The carbanation has to be a bit less, and the texture can be a bit thicker, more full, a bit less watery. The beer leaves a mildy bitter taste in your mouth, together with a really nice, warm feeling. Overall, I really, really like this beer, it has a really delicious taste. The mouthfeel can be better, but the aromas and the taste compensate it more than enough! This is a really good beer for a cold day. That?s why it gets the total score of 4.1!
