COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leute Bok ale is a dark red heavy beer, top fermented and refermented in the bottle. The aroma and taste is unique and striking, not too sweet, but full and smooth on the tongue.

On tap. Glass is cool. Nice dark reddish brown with tan head. Faint Belgian malty nose. Tastes empty, but as it warms up, some toasty matly notes and caramel come through. Not offensive at all, but just incredibly bland and too thin.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 7, 2005
Pours a very dark cranberry brown, some purples and ruby as well. Head is thick, egg-shelled color, and finally bubbled... looks whipped. Aroma is woodchips, clay, cedar, pit fruit, yeast-- a little funky, but interesting. Lovely mouthfeel, and the smooth head makes it all the better. Taste is sweet, strong, plum, fig, brown sugar, then a nice sour (flemish remniscent), rich grape. Really good beer. Thanks to my friend Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing this bottle by.

stouby (3726) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle, at home. Redbrown with very large light brown head, mostly lasting, fine lacings. Aroma heavy malty (bread, brown sugar/caramel). Flavor moderate/heavy sweet with a bittersweet finish. Medium body, oily, soft carbonated, the alcohol is felt.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2005
a diluted brown with a hazy yeasty swarm and a tan beige frothy head. This is a full bodied and thick brew there’s a sweetness to it that’s not sticky and a smooth finish with tart instead of bitter. Surprisingly good. Rubiyat should showcase this more.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Small bottle from Le Select Bistro. Hazy murky brown appearance with a neat brown head featuring mogul like shapes. Slight spice, dark malt and some alcohol in subtle aroma. Mouthfeel is frothy and thick. Initial taste is tart with a bit of staleness (I imagine it is a little old). But this thankfully fades. Taste is pretty nice, slightly spicy with no hint of alcohol. At the end the sourness comes back and starts to detract. This is a decent beer that was probably not in the best shape when I tried it. I still enjoyed the experience though.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2005
A Mes rate: Dark sweet and fruity. Nothing overly special. Exploded out of the bottle and makes a huge head no matter how you try not to. Way too much carb. Swift finish. Thin moutfeel. Erm... yeah thats it.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2005
750ml bottle like the picture. Leute Bok glass I coincidentally picked up 3 months ago. Half the glass is foamy bubbles which quickly settle down to a half inch thick foam. Liquid is dirty brown. Aroma is indeed striking, with sweet brown sugar and vinegar mixed with other scents that I cannot pick out. Sour berry start and middle. Not much for finish. Really rather thin. Ok drinking but doesn’t measure up the the stemless glass.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
33 cl Bottle. Dark brown in colour, with a tan head and fizzy carbonation. Not much aroma, but some hint of burned malt. Some sour taste, with notes of heavy first taste and then nothing speciel in aftertaste. This beer is nothing compared to German bock beer!!
