COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Until 2008 brewed by Huyghe. Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Jopen 4 Grains Bokbeer is made as a ruby red beer made with the three traditional Haarlem grain and rye as a forth grain. The beer contains 6,5% alcohol and has a fruity aroma combined with the dark malts. The taste is lightly smoky from the dark malts used, but there is some sweetness in it to.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 [bottle] Pours a brownish color, with a thick, long lasting head. Flavors are nice, dark malts, caramel sweetness and a touch of coffee. Alcohol content is well hidden. Finishes malty, somewhat sweet and smooth.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2006
This is a spicy tasting, top fermented bock that pours a reddish brown with a dense tan head. It’s got a sharp caramel nose accompanied by a peppery scent from the rye. A bit of alcohol drifts through, too. It’s quite light and very spritzy in the mouth. The flavor is caramel, charcoal, pepper, some apple, and alcohol. Finishing on a warm, sweet, spicy note, this makes an enjoyable, if gassy, drinking experience.

Fairly ordinary bock that isn’t up to the standards of Salvator or Optimator, but more successful than the attempts of many micro brewers. Caramel colored. Standard flavor of a bock, with more caramel and sugar.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2005
Bottle (300ml). Poured murky deep reddish-brown with a massive tan foamy-pillowy head, huge sheets of white sediment. Very nice sour fruit/cider/wine aroma, waves of funky yeast, very grainy, a bit of caramel malt and lactose. Taste is oddly caramelized, burnt fruit, alcohol, but mostly fermented grain - I like it a lot. Mouthfeel acidic, decent body, noticeable alcohol - very nice, good cold weather brew, although that’s probably the most sediment I’ve ever seen in a beer..

Brown earthy dirt like color. Lots of ginger and cinnaman in the aroma. Irony bloody sour ffeel to the body, kind a has a dirt vibe too.

Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle conditioned (?) A very good top fermented bokbier, opaque ruby red. There is a burnt taste to it that seems to fit quite nicely. Glad I stumble accross this in the supermarket. :)

Quinten (1049) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2005
Strange taste like burnd wood, dark color, very complex taste. To complex fore me, let the lovers of thise kind do there work.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Had the 2005 version. This one is a truely nice bock. Very nice flavoured, a bit fruity but mostly very balanced bitterness. Higly enjoyable.
Rerate: Had the 2007 version, this on is certainly a lot worse, but still average. Too spicy and too much sugar.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours borwn and murky with lots (and I mean lots) of floaties. Smells of caramel, and a little like a sour. Tastes tarte with some caramel and nutty undertones. Some cherry notes are present as well. Don’t know what to make of this one. Very unusual.
