Pours dark amber with a fluffy head that dies down, aroma is malty fruit, and slightly metallic, the flavor is malty, some bannana, and alcohol. The flavor is not very complex, as i was hoping. Very thick body, i wish it was a bit fizzier. I probably would not buy again.

Cloudy Brown, Malty nose. Fair chunk of toasted malt in the taste as well. Not sure I’d cal this one complex though. what you smell is pretty much what you get.

Poured into a traditional Kwak glass...pretty darn sweet! Relatively clear mahogany pour with a pretty strong head, depending on the strength of the pour. Sweet aroma with some yeast, brown sugar, raisins and alcohol. Flavor is pleasantly simple...mostly yeasty, caramely malt with some hints of dark fruit and a slight burn afterwards to remind you that this thing does have some ABV working for it. Very high drinkability, however. Nice lacing on glass...I found this to be a well-above average drink.

Bottle; pours a reddish brown with some small chunks visible on the pour. Aroma was sweet, malty and fruity; caramel and cherries. Flavor was really good. Slightly sweet and sour; cherries, caramel, fruit, yeast with hints of spice and vanilla. Palate was solid, with a decent amount of carbonation. This one was very enjoyable.

Served in a kickass glass with a weird wooden stand/handle at Gollem in Amsterdam. Seemed to be the house beer this night as many people had these weird glasses in their hands. Plus, I think it was the most affordable, so while us tourists spent mad euro on the Westy, everyone else seemed to be clutching one of these at one point or another. And, it’s tasty stuff. Lots going on here, more than I can remember, but I can say that this is something I could definitely go back to time after time if I had the luxury of doing such.

A dark 750ml bottle shaped almost like a wine glass.
Pours a beautiful head with a lace that’s just wonderful and stays in place. The head falls a little, but stays pillowy and good looking. The flowery hops are very mellow and the base of the smell for the ale. The smell is very good and has a strawberry undertone that is coupled with other fruity flavors.
The taste is slightly watery, but fruitful with a flowery boquet. It has a spiciness to it, it’s met with a sweet candy flavor.

One of my favourite beers...Kwak has a unique character. The color is the classical amber whit a nice amber head. The taste is superb, includes a good caramel and hopy flavour with a lot of spicy things. In the aftertaste you can feel some vanilla and cinnamon. Good one, i like it very much.

0.33 l bottle. Amber brownish bodied, murky with lot of yeasts floating around, with medium creamy ocher head. Unusual, sourish aroma with caramel malts, and yeast, too. Flavor is a different thing, quite bitter, yeasty and rather simple, although may seem spicy. Medium bodied. Finish is sweetish, just a hint of that bitterness is felt. Very strange, unusual beer, of course, not in the bad way.
