In honor of Saint Martin, Jopen annually brews a masterpiece. Saint Martin was the saint of the brewers guild of Harlem. In earlier times artist and craftsmen had to undergo a test of skill. This masterpiece of 2012 is a limited edition. This year we chose a Rye Russian Imperial Stout of 10% for our beer. This thick black beer is full and strong in flavor because of the combination of roasted rye malt and various American hops.

Got this from ’Kerstbierfesival’ (Christmabeerfestival) in Essen Belgium. This is for me between a Stout and a Dubble Abbey beer. There is this though Stout quality, but it’s also very easy drinkable. Hits of chocolate en roast. Just a very good beer !

After 4 years most of the hops are gone leaving a still very pleasant beer loaded with chocolate, coffee, raisin and grape. Some light roasted tones are in there as well. Full bodied and smooth with low carbonation. A little bit of bitterness is still left, just enough to counter the sweetness. I never tasted this fresh but it’s very good now.

Vignale (3417) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2015
Flaska från beernavigator. Mörkt, mörkt brun, högt bestående beige skum. Stor mörk fruktig doft. Torkad frukt, vanilj, fudge, brownies, rostad malt och rejält med alkoholvärme och lite madeiratoner. Stor, söt, kraftig men också kärv med tydlig beska. Lång fin eftersmak. Riktigt bra.

tomer (3211) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 5, 2015
At a tasting, many thanks MrHangover, smallish creamy head, cloudy dark brown color, aroma of berries and dried fruits, with some light roasted notes, flavor of dark bread, biscuit, vanila and wood, quite dry. Interesting but not exactly an impy.

rayaron (1489) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks tomer. Cloudy brown with small beige head. Very sweet aroma with notes of licorice and milk chocolate, fruity. Very sweet flavor with notes of milk chocolate and licorice, light hoppy bitterness, fruity and very boozy. Soft carbonation, medium to full-bodied. Feels like a Barley wine or American strong ale.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks tomer. Brown with red hues and small yellow-beige head. Smell of dried fruits, licorice, toffee and chocolate. Sweet with flavors of caramel, prunes, raisins, chocolate and alcohol, light-medium bitterness. Medium-bodied, stocky on palate. Interesting flavors though not typical for RIS.

Bottle... Dark brown ale with a small, creamy, taupe head. Great retention. The nose is a delightful marriage of fudge and tangy, dark berries. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with gentle carbonation. The flavor offers 85% cacao chocolate, charcoal and nuttiness. Burnt, bittersweet finish. Kudos to MrHangover for shipping this terrific brew across the pond!
