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.

A nice medium sized brown head covers this murky brown ale, loaded with sediments. Surprisingly yeasty aroma immediately proposes bready flavors, but the malts quickly come in, not quite as I expected them. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t get much fruit component from that bottle. It may have been a bit oldish from the slight musty suggestions, but it was all sweet biscuity malts, reminiscent of the commercial molasses one we call "Bear Paws", around here anyway. Pretty rich on that particular caramelly or toffeeish department, but otherwise not very complete. Nice creamy palate though with somewat expanding carbonation that felt smooth on the tongue. Not bad.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Strong alcoholic malty nose. Red to borwn body, with a small off-white head. Thick malts and some alcohol, too cloying for my taste.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle: Strong toffee aroma with caramel, fruit, and light chocolate. Pours a dark reddish-brown with very little transparency. Off-white head with excellent retention. Lots of chunks in the bottom of the bottle. Flavor is sweet and fruity (slightly tart fruit) with toffee and caramel. Light citrus in the finish. Seems like a fruity doppelbock. Apparently in the minority, but I thought it was rather good.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Hazy amber colour with a dense tan head. Malty aroma with caramel sweet notes. Malty flavor with a bad artificial sweetness.

joergen (20861) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005. Cloudy brown coloured with an off white head. Malty aroma, but not much aroma at all. Unpleasant sour flavour with spicy notes.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - APR 19, 2005
30cl bottle Big tan head on a murky brown beer. First smell seems metallic...as it breathes a minute it shows its malt more. I get nothing very smokey here, though. Finishes what seems dry, then a pronounced chocolatey sweetness comes in...seems OK...malty and sweet, a bit odd with the finish which really hurts it for me.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 14, 2005
An unclear red-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy with cinnamon and licorice-root standing out. The flavor is sour with notes of oranges. Yet another sour Dutch beer.

Bottle. Hazy light brown colour with a big off.white head. Weak sweet aroma and a sweet light sour taste. Light body and a light sour finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2005
(on bottle)Sweetish, lightly smoked nose here. Sour and mlty flavours, and the beer finishes quit dry. Nice at first, but the acidic feel takes over and becomes too much; coulden´t finish a whole bottle.
