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.

Not a real Dutch Bokbier, more like a German WeizenBock. Not sweet for sure and that is axactly the problem with most Dutch Bokbeers. Very nice.

nearbeer (3784) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2008
30 cl, bb 02-10-04, from Knightly Spirits. Murky, dark copper-brown with an enduring half-inch of foam. Creamy frosting left all over the glass. Nice aroma of earthy chocolate, raisin and light cherry. Flavor is earthy leather with raspberries and cream, atop a chocolate and dark fruit base. Toasted wood finish mixes in well. Medium-heavy body is acidic-tingly and finishes dryish. Highly recommend this one when aged four years beyond the bb date.

caesar (5226) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2002
Sampled at Utrechts Bokbierfestival: Nut-brown color. Spicy, grainy aroma. Bit sour, spicy taste. Refreshing, long lingering palate. Excellent bock!

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Murky orange brown with an offf-white head and tons of yeast chunks. Sweet yeasty roasted aroma with a bit of bread character. Full bodied with a fizzy, but nice feel. Ends slightly sweet with a light spicy. Very complex for a lager (if it really is one),

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. :)

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Chunky multi brown with a thick, solid, fresh-powder-snow-like tan head. Funky dark fruits, rich and roasty caramel/toffee, biscuits, bready yeast, clove like spice, light ash and banana notes. Medium/full, smooth palate. Great bock. Underrated.

Douberd (2372) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2012
330 ml, long neck brown bottle, ABV 6,5%, at home, poured into a snifter. Pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a good two finger beige, creamy head, with average retention. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and on the background slight caramel and alcohol. Taste is sweet at first, giving its place to a light pleasant bitterness. Roasted malts and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, light carbonation. A very tasty bock.

androman (451) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2013
33cl bottle @ home. Ruby red to cola color, hazy, brownish strong head. Aroma caramel, slightly smoky, malty, dark fruits, red wine notes, light coffee. Taste very light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body, thin feel, lively carbon, long lasting fine bitter finish. Great that sweetness is moderated, this is a fine, tasty bock bear, and easy to drink.

Pours a three-finger off-white,thick head that stays , leaving tons of lace; pour this one slowly. Cloudy amber color with a lot of chunky bits. Medium bodied and carbonation. Sweet raisin nose, malty start and finish. Totally different from any bock I have had. Savor this one. $3.99 for 300ml.
