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)

olsvammel (6851) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Sample at rebro l & Whisky 2013. Fruity smell with dried fruit. Similar taste with chocolate and a boozy finish. Felt a bit too young and probably needs to age a bit to get the flavours right.

Heavy beer. I can see the resemblance to other quadrupels when it comes to taste, but it seems to be not as balanced as others. Still, interesting and quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 This strong dark beer has an chocolate aroma, the taste is more espresso like and the caramalt is clearly testable. The quadruple has a very thick mouth. A complex beer for the cold winter days. Drinking blind from a 33 cl bottle. Bottle 1,5 year old. In the aroma perfume, alcohol raisins, oxidation and diluent. The clear red brown beer has a small brown head. High carbonated. (13/05/2014: 6, 4, 7, 4, 14)

Bottle thanks to Douberd and the European Local Swap II. Vary dark brown with an beige head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is toasted, dry frits notes, spiced and ripe fruit. Flavor is alcoholic, light sweet, notes of ripe fruits, slightly coffee and sweet, notes of nuts and bitter almonds. The final is light sweet and alcoholic.

Very tasty, very thick. Both in terms of taste and mouthfeel. Licorice dominates this black beer, but there is some mild coffee flavoring as well. Picked this up at ABC beer in the Hague, 2013.

Rich quadrupel with a body of sweet caramalt with chocolate and roasted coffee. The hops give the beer a nice bitter and fruity finish. Especially the Nelson Sauvin is great.

KyotoLefty (9990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2013
Bottled. Dark brown with red tints, lace. Juicy dreid fruit and treacle nose, raisins, cola. Sweet, fruity flavor with raisins, chocolate, treacle, and a light fruity tang. Full and silky. Would like to age this for a few years then try again. Still young, and the candi sugar is a bit too evident.
