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.

Poured a cloudy, murky, deep brownish color with a huge (4+ finger) frothy, off white head. Lots of large floaters. Aromas of leather, caramel, with some dark fruits lurking in the background. Smoky tasting. Lightly sweet. Yeasty.

(30cl bottle) Enormous beige head atop a hazy orange-dark brown body, the bottom of the pour was rather sludgy and added considerable murkiness. Aroma is sweet, molasses, caramel, chocolate, raisin/plum, light metallic. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some coffee, light peat, soy sauce. Watery medium-full body. The flavor got worse as the beer warmed -- metallic showed up and soy sauce got stronger.

Choc/cara aroma. Brown with light beighe head. Sweet sticky. Not balanced, quite cloying. Bit of choc in flavour. "Blergh"

Tap@Lowlander, Covent Garden, London. Very sticky sweetness, with a lactic acidic quality. Caramel and soy sauce, way to sweet and sticky. Lots of alcohol noticed aswell.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2004
Very carbonated, bubbles as in aged beer, foxy-amber beer with red highlights, slightly hazy only (!); disparate beige head. Wheat, sourmash, chocolate, laurel, and the brimstone smell you get when trying an empty lighter. A bit metallic taste, ever so slightly sourish, quite wheaty again, maybe again a bit lactic. Dark malts in evidence. Quite well bodied, nearly chewy, sourness keeps it refreshing nevertheless. Quite original tasting bokbier. If it’s infected, it’s in a very nice way. Like it.

Dark Brown Coloring. Foamy Off White Head. HUGE Yeast Particles/Skin..Need a Strainer for This One. Malty, Sweet...Not Bad Overall...but Large Yeast Deposits Throws a Person Off.

badgerben (4364) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Dark brown color with a thick head. Good lord... it looks like Jabba the Hut shat in my beer there’s so much curdled sediement! Sweet malt aroma. Some malty taste, a little soy sauce, but those chucks of something really throw it off.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
Bought it in the supermarket, never thought they’d sell this one! Darkred, quite a large and longlasting head. The aroma was really fine, sweet, tender, made me really thirsty! Warm and sweet, but a refreshingly sour fruity aftertaste (some cherry in it) that doesn’t linger very long though. I did enjoy it, quite different from other bocks I’ve had so far..

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Muddy mahogany color, fluffy, if evanescent froth, dunnish in hue... Aroma is led by cola nuts, coffee, toffee, ..pretty nice. Tasty little guy, nice frisky dance on the tongue, then, poof, she’s gone, to return with the next sip. Big malt, with a definite zing, tingly hops, dark fruit...a Dutch bock?...hey, that’s somethin’, eh...drop me off in Haarlem... Overall: pretty decent. Worth the $2.99 per single bottle I plunked down? Not a chance.
