Zo is in mijn ogen craft beer bedoelt. Sterk qua smaak, maar niet te. Alcohol is niet sterk aanwezig in de smaak Frans_Haarlem (4) - - MAY 21, 2012 does not count
For all of you who likes Russian Imperial Stouts, try the Jopen Meesterstuk 2012. Wow, what a taste. But be carefull, it’s a heavy one! perfect in combination with chocolate or red cheeses. Jur (468) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Always the highlight of the year when Jopen brews their "Meesterstuk", a glorious rye imperial stout. Very robust, full of complexity and taste it is not a sweet as many imperial stouts are, but with a herby bitter finish.
It is a sipper, weighing in at 10% like a Rochefort, but better! worldbeertaste (1806) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
2 year old bottle. Dark black with a red tint and a lasting, sticky, lacy, frothy head. Lovely balanced smell of dark fruit, malt, roast, coffee and chocolate. Medium oily body. Dry. Tastes of roast, dark chocolate, and a ashy finish. For 10% it’s smooth and super easy to drink. A fantastic stout that holds no apologies to anyone. ads135 (4883) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Dark brown, almost black. Thick, off white head. Medium body with a sweet, chocolately, brown sugary flavor. A bit of licorice in the aroma. Tried with Jess at the Jopenkerk in 2012

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 ! SimplySike (1510) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2012

330 ml bottle from De Bierkoning @ Amsterdam. Good beer to finish the month of March. Pours dark brown with a small beige head, leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity, molasses, sweet caramel candy and some refreshing hops. First sip is totally satisfying. It has a small bite of alcohol, molasses, caramelized brown sugar, dark dried plums, fruity roasted flavour and everything finding culmination in a dry, roast hop bitterness.

Bottle, bb 08/11/15. Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma: rye, chocolate, dark fruit, somewhat boozy. taste: dark chocolate, rye bread, plums, raisins, cherries, wood, butter, hazelnut. Nice sweet/bitter balance, oily mouthfeel, long lingering dark chocolate and cherry finish with a hint of port. Lovely!
