Jopen Doubting Thomas
Tasting is believing
The result of adding American hops to a quadrupel, 10%
Jopen Doubting Thomas (aka Ongelovige Thomas) is our interpretation of a quadrupel. A distinct beer with rich malt as the main flavour. The American hops gives it a fruity character.
This beer is named after the apostle Thomas, who would not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead. Thomas has his name-day at the start of winter on 21 December. This reddish-brown beer is a genuine winter warmer. Surprisingly rich in flavour and ideal for sipping beside the fireplace. Believe it or not, this is a heavyweight.

Caramel, bread, chocolate biscuits, blackberries, cherries, lychees and citrus.
Warming smooth flavour of caramel and toffee with berry fruitiness.
Blackberries, citrus and toast.
Pours a brown colour with a light brown head and some flakes of yeast. The aroma is sweet, hints of caramel and plums. The taste is sweet and reminds of candy and dark fruit, then of alcohol and some hops. Nice lingering finish. Great brew!
