Poured medium reddish amber with a dense tan head. Aroma of sweet citrus, light berries and soft malt. Full body, flavour of alcohol soked dark fruit, caramel malt, lingering alcohol burn. Better with a couple of years barrelling.

Aroma is a bit woody and has some gin-like boozy aromatics. Smooth texture and a rich, warming feel. Dry, woody, boozy, sweet.

thanatosti (932) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra, Tiel. Copper colour with a small off-white head. Hoppy aroma with some caramel. Taste is bittersweet with some wood, oak, in it. The alcohol is present but very well hidden nonetheless. Although I love most Jopen beers and like this one it isn’t the best I ever had, the overall aroma and taste are not entirely to my liking. Still, this is a skillfully brewed beer.

Hele hoppige neus bij het uitschenken. Mooie donkere kleur. Eerste slok is rijk, vol en de afdronk blijft lang hangen. Een heel mooi bier.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Dark brown with a cream coloured head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, caramel, ripe dark fruits, raisins, spices. Flavour is moderate to heavy caramel sweetness. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty fine brew, I’m curious as to how this will age.

kraddel (3471) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle from Biernavigatie.nl Pours nice and dark, caramel-coloured , good to small white head Smell has some sweetness, some oak , but is very balanced . Taste is surprisingly different than other BW . It’s sweet ( sugar , but in a whole different , and rather good way ) Very full taste . Some light notes of wood . All extremely well balanced ! Just when you think the sweetness will become to much, the oak takes over, to end in a nice , almost earthy ( but not quite ) aftertaste . My second beer from the series, and so far , they ARE masterpieces . Respect for Jopen keeps going up !
