got it at a bar in brugge mostly because of curiosity - the glass is the coolest thing about this. the whole time i thought i was drinking an amber ale and not a belgian strong, it was good though, perhaps a little too sweet, but a nice change of pace from other belgian beers

Bottle. High creamy good looking lasting off-white head. Beautiful clear red brown body. Sweet barley malt aroma. Simple but good. Roasted malt flavor with caramel and hops. Sweet and dry is the overall impression. Low carbonation. Long and sweet aftertaste.

Reddish amber. The malts really come through in the aroma and flagor. Smells like sandalwood and fir. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit, molasses, and pears.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 Bottled 33cl. It pours a amber beer with a tanned head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, anise, apples and pears. Lots of raisins; Metallic and oily. Sweet flavor with notes of fruits (raisins, apples and pears), caramel and wood. A rather smooth belgian strong ale. Dominating malty and fruity flavors, lots of apples. Some almond and marzipan notes. There is an unenjoyable metallic touch to this beer. A sweet and herbal alcoholic finish with hints of anise. Dissappointing - Not worth purchasing again. I like the Kwak glasses though. Additional comment: Mediocre. Overrated in my opinion.

thebeertourist (5158) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle. Clear, orangey copper colour, big tan head. Yeasty and fruity aroma with hints of banana. Nice fruity banana and peachy flavours, good malty balance, dryish yeasty finish. A nice surprise (despite having drunk it on several occasions before);there is absolutely more to to this beer than the glass gimmick.

A beautiful amber colour with a perfect head shows when poured in the original Kwak glass. Clearly one of my favorite beers!

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a dark amber with a huge, rocky white head. The aroma is slightly spicy with a definite toffee malt aroma. The flavor is light with the profile being dominated by a light sweetness that is complimented with a balanced spice and floral hops flavor. It finishes clean without any stickiness, but seems slightly over carbonated relative to the flavor profile. Overall, a solid entry into an ambiguous and huge style of beer.
