Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Ok, so this beer was purchased because of the cool name (Kwak Kwak). INtersting flavor, one of the better Belgian Strong Ales I’ve tried. I could drink more of this.

Nice orange color with a thickish white head, nice spicy aroma. Apple and cinnamon seem to be the dominating flavors, but there is plenty going on in there. Smooth drinking without much of an aftertaste. The duck beer is good stuff.

Geiserich (3383) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 17, 2004
Very malty aroma and alcoholic, but not too complex. Peppery, malty taste, alcohol flavor, and a light herbal, bitter finsish. Quite boring for an Belgian Strong Ale, nearly no fruitiness.

Nice malty, citrusy, slightly woody, musty aroma. Intriguing. Color is a clear amber with good carbonation and a tight tan head. Taste is at first malty. Slighty citrusy with some musty character as well, and that is good in this type of beer. Some woody notes in the taste too. Malt takes over in the end and the finish is warming from the alcohol. A nice warming beer on a cool, drizzly fall Minnesota day.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Deep mahogany, thin, oily, faintly bubbly mocha head. Nose yeasty and a bit sour, some chocolate, a bit woody, really interesting combination of scents. Flavor is deeply sweet, some plums and figs, mild citric burst to it. Some sourness there, also yeast. Bit milky as well, has that lactic quality to it. Palate is sticky-sweet. Quite nice.

A nice beer, but too chunky, maybe my bottle was a bit old, but I usually like that, but this beer had BIG chunks! Its a good beer, but I wish the beer wasn’t so thick, alot of particles. I will try this beer again soon

A beautifull beer. Specially when it is drunk out his special glass.

My 100th rating! Pours brown with small off-white head. The nose is the best thing about this brew... spice and flowers, and snickerdoodles? Sweet and malty flavor, sour and hoppy aftertaste, slightly metallic. Pretty good.

On-tap. "If you want to drink it out of a original Kwak glass, you have to leave your left shoe as a pledge! Those glasses are really expensive.” No, the bartender didn’t pull my leg. The downside of visiting a student pub, I’ll guess. I had my beer in a pilsener flute instead.

The colour is pale amber; the finger-thick foam is white and quite compact.

The smell is sourish with some lactose and some sort of hops.

The carbonation was rather strong and a little bit sticky. But at the same time very fresh and descending.

The taste is sourish and very refreshing. The liberal taste of malt is slowly replaced by a lactose-sweetness and bitter hops. Then, a fine body and a mild taste of aromatic hops emerge. There is a touch of wheat beer in the aftertaste with the combination of candy-sweetness and fruity, spicy hops.

This beer is weird, I still cannot describe what it tastes like. I have one right here in my hand, and its my third six pack. Ive had it in the states and in france. Still this stuff baffles me. Its a great flavor, very supriseing, but I cant describe it. If you want a beer that tastes like nothing else, this is it.
