UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 Mooie donkere dieprode kleur. Eén van de beste bieren die ik het afgelopen jaar heb gedronken. Heerlijke smaakcombinatie van kruiden. Op advies laat ik er één een halfjaar rijpen. En dan is die nog lekkerder, vanille afdronk

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

Mooi donkerbruin bier, de schuimkop kwam echter niet helemaal tevoorschijn tijdens het schenken. Een heerlijke smaak, caramel en overrijp fruit, met een zoet-bittere afdronk, en een sterke alcoholsmaak. Lekker sterk en stevig bier.

kraddel (3135) - 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 !

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2014
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 10.5% Beautyful dark red to brown colour on the body, with two fingers of thick tan head. Very good retention, medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fruity, berries, caramel, cookie dough,light toffee, some flower notes. Taste is sweet, again very fruity, with obvious but not annoying alcohol notes, caramel malts, cookies, some vanilla. Full body with good carbonation and a little sticky palate. Really great! Until now the best Meesterstuk I have had.

0,3l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes Bier, wenig Schaum. Es riecht nach Caramel und Aprikosen. Es schmeckt nach getrockneten Früchten Caramel und Maronen, im Abgang schmeckt man auch noch den Hopfen. Sehr gelungenes Bier!

Large sample at Pint tasting
Clear red brown. Light beige head. Aroma is an interesting combo of alcohol and (fresh grassy) hops. Taste still has a sharp alcoholic edge. Beneath that there’s a rather smooth beer with notes of portwine, overripe fruit, christmas candies. Creamy, almost buttery mouth feel, pleasant carbonation. Good beer, that will probably become even better when aged a few months.
