Bok style beers are popular throughout Europe and like many beer styles date back to Germany but the Dutch sure do know how to brew a fine Bok. One we have found is made by Heineken called Heineken Tarwerbok. Brewed using all natural ingredients this beer features a ram on the label, which is common for a lot of Bok style beers. Some use rams others use goats- we don’t know why. The beer has a 6.5% alcohol volume and gives a good kick, especially on a cold winter’s night. These Bok styles of beers are usually only brewed for the winter market and you can see why because they sure do warm you up. The beer has a strong liquorices and even smoky flavor it is sweet although bitter, the first mouth full is a bit of a challenge but once you get into it you will really enjoy it and go back for more– trust me!. The beer is not a beer you can drink like a normal lager or pilsner, you need to really relax and enjoy it. It goes lovely with some chocolate by the open fire. Look out for a Bok beer next winter.
