Brewed by Proef for Jopen (www.jopen.nl). Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Koyt is a dark beer with 8,5% alcohol and a warming herbal taste. The reddish-brown Koyt is the strong version of the old gruit beer. Note: this is not a kuit/kuyt!

Goodgrief (1907) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2008
March 2006 - Poured cloudy reddish orange with nice head. Flavor was like strong whiskey. Flavor was really sour...funky even. I’m not sure if I liked it, but I’ll give it points for uniqueness.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle from Degarth/Secret Santa. Very bready, clean aroma. Juniper in the flavor, odd caramel and sage, herbs. Interesting example, with a lot more strength and character than other gruits I’ve had. Florals especially are very strong and really evoke a traditional ale. Fun stuff, and a great example of just what can be done with beer.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Cloudy dark brown color; nice perlage, big head. Strong aroma, with caramel and malt, quite Belgian, mature (the bottle was in my cellar for at least one year). Medium body strength, with sweetish mouthfeel, a lot of caramel; the mouthfeel becomes drier at the end, with not much bitterness, and the warming alcohol feeling; quite boring…

MoritzF (8937) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2007
(33cl bottle, courtesy of bierkoning) Hazy, copper colour with a big and persistent beige foamy head. Yeasty, moderately sweet and slightly toasty malt aroma with caramel, a tinge of liquorice, undefined spicy, herbal elements and noticeable alcohol. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, quite light bodied regarding its strength, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Toast-malty taste with caramel, raisins and spicy notes; moderately sweet, strong spicy and herbal finish. Very interesting old fashioned style, although the historical brews most probably didn´t had that strength.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear deep red-brown colour with a medium fair lasting light brown head. Lots of spices in the aroma along with mild roasted malt, caramel and dark fruits and some liquorice. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is nicely spiced with roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits, hops and alcohol. Spiced roastish bit alcoholic finish. Good brew indeed.

Braudog (6070) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Caged and corked. This poured with the color of a muddy river bottom with an initial blast of carbonation that disappears almost instantly. The aroma is strongly soured and vegetabley. As I drink, I’m trying to decide if I like this. It’s an odd blend of sweet yeastiness, some gross dried fruit and a funky root beery thing, too. Odd. (#3121, 10/6/2007)

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2007
Nice full and tasty brew. Dried fruits, caramel and a bit yeasty beer, more like an abt beer then a traditional ale. Fruity, malty and full long finish. Very nice.
