Ter ere van Sint Maarten brouwt Jopen jaarlijks een Meesterstuk. Sint Maarten was de beschermheilige van het Haarlemse brouwersgilde. In vroeger tijden moesten kunstenaars en ambachtslieden een proef van bekwaamheid leveren. Dit Meesterstuk 2013is in gelimiteerde oplage uitgebracht. Als bier is dit jaar gekozen voor een Quadruppel type gebrouwen met donkere tarwemout en Nieuw Zeelandse hopsoorten. Water, pilsmout, tarwemout, caramout, kandijsuiker, Pacific Jade en East Kent Golding (ketelhop) en Simcoe en Nelson Sauvin hop (dry hopping)

Stevig grossiert deze quadrupel in drop, chocolade, booze en ingemaakt fruit. Aroma is likeur, kersen en een kruidige toets. Geen kraag, donker bruin-zwart. Winterbier (waarom drink ik dit met 27 graden?)

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from Bierkoning, thanks! Aroma of a Dutch doppelbock. Lots of prunes, some chocolate, licorice, nuts and perfumy alcohol. It tastes better than it smells, with the licorice coming to the fore, nicely underlined by the chewyness of this beer. Adding sweetness, some chocolate, a pinch of nuts and alcohol to the mix, there you have it - a nicely composed, though not really impressive quad, as far as I am concerned.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks tomer. Very dark brown with tan head. Sweet aroma, bubblegum and chocolate. Sweet and sugary taste. Full-bodied, too sweet chocolate milk finish. Unpleasing.

(Drinking date: 19th January 2014) It is a really dark/black beer where no light shines through. It has a creamy, beige layer of foam, but that reduces quickly to a thin layer. The aroma is really delicious. You smell raisins, other ripe dried fruit, salted liqorice and sweet chocolate (pure and milk chocolate). Also in the back you smell a bit of alcohol. When I had the first sip, it dissapointed me a bit. I expected a really round, full beer, but instead it was a bit watery, with a lot of carbonation. The first thing you taste is the alcohol. Then a sweetness, which is followed by a bitter and sweet taste at the same time. The beer also has a bit of a fruity taste, really nice. The sweetness/fruitiness comes from the fruitiness of the hops. The sweetiness also reminds me of sweet liqorice. The bitterness comes from the burned/roasted malt. I really enjoy the taste! The carbanation has to be a bit less, and the texture can be a bit thicker, more full, a bit less watery. The beer leaves a mildy bitter taste in your mouth, together with a really nice, warm feeling. Overall, I really, really like this beer, it has a really delicious taste. The mouthfeel can be better, but the aromas and the taste compensate it more than enough! This is a really good beer for a cold day. That?s why it gets the total score of 4.1!
