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.

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. :)

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, 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 (6355) - 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.

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2005
(bottle) Hazy reddish brown colour with a small foamy tanned head. Sweet caramel aroma with chocolate and a light toasty note. Also sweet caramel-malty accented flavour and taste, slightly bitter and spicy (pepper) finish. Reminds me of a (stronger) german Dunkel.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2010 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick redbrown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a brandy malty touch . This beer smells spicy.

Shag (2837) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2005
This poured a murky brown with a beige head. Good lord look at the floaties in this thing, like a sample of water from Lake Erie. A caramel, nutmeg, chocolate, and plum aroma. It will tickle your freaking nose. The flavor is very sour with some grapes, chocolate, and bready. A doughy presence is definitley there. Some alcohol in the finish. Not bad at all.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle, snifter. Lots of floaties before I even got near the bottom of the bottle; dense, various sizes; looks sort of like curded milk. Hm. Deep amber-brown hue with a frothy, light tan head with some coarse bubbles. Rich pure malt sweet aroma, chocolate, dark bread, light brown sugar, raisins, plums. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic (sour) flavor. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish. Interesting raisin/plum tartness to go along with the sweetness. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Odd sour dark fruits for a bock, but tasty enough.
