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.

Found the bottle and logo on cap more exciting than the beer within. Had hoped for very rich and complex malt or something that would be above and beyond this rather hohum beer. Not worthy of greater comment.

Mild but not a pushover. Smoothness that's amazing for such a strong bock.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2004 Bottle pours muddy brown, mild cream colored head (fizzy), herds of carbonation, and plenty of variable sized yeasty bits floating about.   Earthy & dusty in the nose, with hints of yeast.   Spicey and earthy on the flavor.   A bit sour in the middle, but tiz managable.   Finish is smooth, a little bit of sweet & sour.   Mouthfeel is spritzy, but lacing was lacking.   A little more of that earthy/dusty taste lingers.   Tiz Decent.

leaparsons (7930) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2004
Dark black with a large off-white head. Aromas are earthy, spicy and sweet. Flavours are also sweet, earthy, then sweet again to finish. Like a milk stout in my opinion - and I don't like milk stout.

(Draught)

The beer pours a misty mahogany to brown color; the head is modest in size, creamy in its texture and a nice light tan in color, the lace a satiny sheet upon the glass. Nose is earthy as in yeast, also sweet and fresh to the olfactory senses, start is ambrosial, nice malt profile, toasted grain evident, top is moderate in its feel to the palate. Finish has judicious acidity, the hops penetrating in their spiciness, very dry aftertaste and a quaffable brew tis’ true.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2004
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen.
Amber/red with a medium beige head. The glass is awesome (thats why I rate appearance 5 instead of 4!). Aroma is winy and fruity. Flavor is sweet with fruit and cherry notes. Bitter/sour finish. Very refreshing!

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2004
Bottle conditioned. 750ml bottle. Hazy chestnut, good fluffy off white and creamy head with moderate condition. Fruity malt, buttery toffee and some alcohol in the nose, tangy fruit, some caramel and a musty corkiness in the mouth and a caramel sweet chalky finish.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours a rich mahogony brown, perhaps a little cloudy, with a bubbly tan head to top it. Fruit and spice sneak out as it warms out of my cold cellar. Enjoyable maltiness at first but the somewhat undiscernable aftertaste lingers for too long. Acceptable.
