Gozer Imperial Oatmeal Stout – ABV 9.8%

Kaapse’s flagship beer; big on red fruits, fresh espresso and roasted malts. We tasted this in Rotterdam, and couldn’t resist having a few cases shipped over.

Look: The beer pours black in the glass with barely any head

Aroma: Roasted malt with fruity fresh roast coffee beans.

Taste: Dark chocolate with a sweet fruitiness that gives the beer a lovely Belgian-style twist.

Verdict: . ‘Gozer’ means bloke or lad in Dutch – and this gozer is a top bloke.

Jaapie Imperial Red Ale – ABV 9.4%

It’s just like a Belgian Red but with everything amplified – fruit, sweetness and alcohol and even banana creaminess. FC Feyenoord would be proud.

Look: Jaapie pours bright red in the glass, with a thin white head that is gone in the blink of an eye.

Aroma: Red berries, sweet malt and lots of fruity esters the yeast.

Taste: All the above plus plums, raspberries and banana creaminess.

Verdict: We are told Jaapie was named after Jaap Valkhoff – a singer Katendrecht on the Rotterdam peninsula where the brewery is based – who wrote the FC Feyenoord club song “Hand in Hand”. We don’t know what you’ll make of the song, but the beer is absolutely terrific.
