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.

750ml, this bottle is gorgeous. A light beige head sits atop a murky caramel brown colored body. Massive carbonation doesn’t budge, in fact it builds from a solitary point on one side of the glass. The first sniff brings must and moldy cardboard. The second adds the obligatory caramel malt along with anise, muffled floral hops, fruit basket and burnt sugar. Flavor is more of the same, this portion of the quaff proving much sweeter. Additions include a slight tart edge, candy caramel apples and toffee. Tastes old but really hard to tell because of the great head and beautiful lacing, I think it’s just a musty style strong ale, certainly not a bock. The finish is long and balanced, neither too sweet nor too dry. Medium bodied, excellent mouthfeel, great palate really. Drab.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Dark red/brown. Soda like tan cap - loudly fizzy and short lived. Sour - oxidized or infected or intentional - hard to tell. Also lots of caramel and some earth. Subtle spicy yeast. Body is thin, almost watery, with light carbonation. Strange brew.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 Christmas gift from my supervisior. Came with a really cool glass, that sits in a wooden block. Pour was a cloudy amber/brown. White creamy fluffy head. Nose was musty yeast and some roast and chocolate. Most yeast though. Taste was strong, like a belgian strong. A bit too much carbination, I will let this warm. Not a bad brew, the glass kick butt!

Eructoblaster (3843) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle - 330ml. Dark brown body with ruby glints, average carbonation and a thick, lasting off-white foamy head. Malty aroma with vineous/plummy hints. Very well balanced taste that hides the alcohol very well. It carries fruity and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable!

Bottle at home. Punchy. You can smell the fermentation and it shoots out into the glass. It’s red-colored and quite sweet, caramelized. Spicy as well.

Bartzilla (620) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Not bad, not great. Seemingly typical Belgian Strong Ale. Somewhat sweet and extremely effervescent. Almost bubbly like champagne. Pour slow!

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2006
Corked magnum bottle Pours a clouded deep copper colored ale into the glass...2 finger rocky cap reduced to a sticky surface lace and stays the drink, laces the side well enough. Very effervescent from bottle conditioning. Aroma is of musty burlap and some sweetness over fermenting fruits and almonds...nice nose. Moderate malt decernment, medium-light body, peppery mouth feel, spritzy-yeasty-fruity character. Profile: Up front some sweetness from caramelized malts, then a rush of sour musty tastes much like spoiled fruits...finish is crisp and spritzy but yeasty with the fruits punching through and a light bittering from the hopping....yeasty-sweet aftertaste. I’m not partial to this one...sharp edges, too yeasty and undeveloped and I’m double pissed off because they fooled me into thinking it was a bock beer.
