Doubting Thomas is Jopen’s Quadrupel, the term Imperial is added because of high content of American hops. The base is a heavy malty beer just like the
trappist beers. The American hops give the OGT a strong fruity taste with a heavy bitter aftertaste.
The name Ongelovige Thomas (Doubting Thomas) points to the fact that the beer is developed as a Winter beer. The name day of Doubting Thomas is December 21, the start of winter. Doubting Thomas was one of the apostles of Jesus, and did not believe that Jesus had risen until he saw the holes in his hands (seeing is believing). With us it is “tasting is believing”
