Found on old bottle of Haarlems Stripdagenbier and stored it for another year. Well, i can’t say i fully enjoyed it, but that’s because of the overly cork taste(i stored it upright(?)). I will try and rate it despite the cork. Looks great, hazy blond with a creamy head. Aromas of caramel, malt and some fruit. Tastes sweet, bitterish, malty, fruity and a lot of alcohol sweetness aka boozy. Some licorice in the finish. Not that bad, but i think i better tasted this one when younger. Great bottle btw!!

75 cl bottle with the Dirk-Jan comic on the label. Clear brown coloured, tons of carbonation and therefore big lasting head. Aroma of caramel malts, some fruits perhaps, not really sure which. Malty flavour, some bitterness with some sweetness to compensate. I must say really liked this one.

caesar (5203) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2004
This beer was brewn for the Stripdagen in Haarlem in 2003, and the label shows a picture of ’Dirk-Jan’, a popular cartoon in Holland. Clear golden color, medium head. Aroma is very fruity and spicy, only a bit caramel malty. Nice balanced taste of fruits like peach and orange with a more bitter and malty palate. Very nice beer.

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2004
Fruity and malty nose. Clear, amber coloured with a thick, lasting head. Taste is malty, sweet, quite fruity again, some bitterness. This one is good, but I like the standard Jopen’s more.

(This beer might well be a collectors' edition from the more usual Koyt - painted 75cl bottle. But on all sites I tried, it is classified apart.) Colour: Brown-caramel; yellow-amber thick head, going down slowly. Nose: fruity and caramel at the same time, like fruit dipped in fluid caramel. Dark malts, and a touch of licorice. Alcohol apparent. Bitter taste, from burnt malts. Sweetness underneath. Again a little licorice retronasal. Mouthfeel leaves to be desired. Despite all the malts, there is a thinnish texture. Slight alcoholburn, spicy finish. From all recently tried Jopenbeers, the best by far. It has a vinous quality, equal to good Abbey dubbels, with a touch of Flemish Oud bruin. Just the mouthfeel/texture is lacking.
