Beautifully crafted by monks
Strong double bock , 9%
Jopen Johannieter is a dark brown, strong double bock brewed with an ample dose of roasted wheat malt. This roasted wheat is what gives the beer its colour and a fruitiness that is reminiscent of wheat beer.
The name of this beer comes from the Johannieterklooster (monastery) that used to be located in the heart of Haarlem. Here, monks brewed beer for their guests and for their own consumption. Today, the buildings accommodate the Noord-Hollands Archief (North Holland Archive), where the old Haarlem brewer’s statutes are stored. Taste the work of monks.

Caramel, liquorice, coffee, ripe summer fruits, raisins, preserved fruit and prunes.
Full-bodied flavour of toast, chocolate, caramel, raisins and summer fruits.
Coffee and chocolate.
The beer is dark brown with full tinted foam, CO2 level is very good. In the aroma nice tones of caramel and coffee. The taste is light bitter and refers to the coffee aroma, but also hints of pure chocolate and some dark fruits. The finish is very intense with a longish complex taste which is quiet bitter. A very good Bock from Holland, one of the best I’ve tasted so far.
Beer is a much better meal accompaniment than many people think.
