ShivanDragon (1253) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2013
Bruin met minimale kaki kraag Aroma: moutig, caramel, nat karton Smaken: licht zoet, licht bitter, licht fruitig, rookmout, gerst, haver, rogge en tarwe (aldus label), gebrande mouten Lichte body, dun, waterig. Ondanks de veld granen valt de smaak mij wat tegen, de smaken zijn wat zacht waarbij de rooktonen toch wat overheersen

fles gedeeld met bryan vdv. Complexe geur. Kruidig en lichte fruit aroma. Troebel biertje, gist is duidelijk zichtbaar in het glas. Donkerbruine kleur. Lichte koffiesmaak, vleugje fruit. Begint zoetig, bittere nasmaak. Stevige body. Lekker bockbier.

Fles gedeeld met peltmeister. Mooi donker robijn rood bier vol met gist. Geur is zoetig, rogge. Smaak is mooi in balans. Zoet in begin en daarna bitter mooie afdronk. Hele mooie bok, zo niet een van de beste.

Xstream (155) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Has the typical Jopen molasses flavor and smell like with ’Koyt’ and ’Meesterstuk’ beers etc But this one has more burnt malts and dark bitter flavors, not as sweet. I like the burnt / smokey undertone with the medium sweet caramel, molasses and candy sugar to balance it out. Has good body to it. Good beer.

30cl bottle at home. Clear dark brown with a medium off-white head. Medium body with ditto carbonation. Burnt malts, chocolate, some caramel, dark fruits and grains. Sweet and a tad smoky. A very decent dunkler bock.

A usual bok beer, but a little bit more special due to the use of rye and some spices.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Bottle at the Jopenkerk, Haarlem. Poured a clear mahogany with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is yeasty, leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of roasted malt, yeast and liqourice on the silky smooth palate.

Brownish in color with light head, this beer gives out a toasty aroma along with a toasty aftertaste. Jopen four-grain bokbier is light and fruity, perfect for a warm summer night.
