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.

22 Oct 2012 in Valkenburg, Holland: Cafe De Grendelpoort is having a Bockfest and this was one of the brews on-tap. Very dark, most likely the darkest Bok I saw during my stay in Holland. The head was also the whitest I saw on a Bok this time around. The aroma and taste were of roasted but not burnt malts with red berry notes in both the smell and mouth flavours. Coffee, prunes and plums can be added to the taste thoughts as this is a complex and interesting beer. Medium bodied and easy to drink: pity there were so mant to try, or I could have stayed on this for another one or three!

Koelschtrinker (11510) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 27, 2014
Stark karbonisierter, herb röstiger Antrunk. Dabei leicht süß, spritzig, das Bier scheint sich nicht sicher, in welche Richtung es gehen soll. Trinkbares, auf Dauer langweiliges Bier. 11/8/8/7/9/7

This beer is far away from being a "devine beer". Even if they pretend it to be one. Knowing that Jopen definitely brews some of the finest beers of the Netherlands, this one is disapointing.

Ok, I’m done with the bock beers now. This is quite a standard bock, nothing special. Mostly malts in aroma and taste, medium body, medium carbonation, sticky.
