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.

blackisle (753) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle 30cl. as Jopen Bokbier. Opaque red-brown color, one finger creamy tan head, recedes slowly, thin layer remains, nice lacing; sweet roasted malt nose, caramel, cloves, hint of coffee; moderate sweet malty taste, slightly bitter, roasted, hint of coffee; medium to full body, bit watery texture; medium-dry bitter finish, slightly sweet. Not bad at all but more a porter than a bock.

chinchill (1963) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Consumed slowly with temperature rising from about 39F to 55F. This beer is new to the U.S. (GA only, so far). Pours a dark red-brown color with almost no head; a little spotty lacing is left on the glass. Looks like a porter. Aroma: A bit malty for a bockbeer, with suggestion of a Scottish ale. Some caramel, green apples, light spices, faint smokiness and mild alcohol esters. Taste: More malty than the smell suggests. Some caramel and darker roasted grains, with just hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Moderately complex owing to the grain bill. Mouthfeel: medium body and crisp carbonation. Dry finish. Overall: not a typical German Bockbier, but quite tasty and easily recommended.

jbruner (2358) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a deep copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet maltiness, hint of earth, fruity yeast esters. Taste follows, cut the fruit, add some smokiness. Solid, nothing crazy but well done.
