This beer was incredible. Very easy to drink for how strong it was. Flavors of rasains, and brown sugar but with an unmatched smoothness.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 8, 2004
bottled: that name kwak, makes me think of a duck or a incompetent Dr. not a belgium beer. maybe this kwak guy was a doctor or a duck??? pours golden amber with a nice rocky head in the trappist glass. the nose was musty and fruity. in the mouth lots of malt character, sweet apricots and bananas. real nice feel on the palate. i really enjoyed the 1st half of the glass. as the beer warmed and i kept drinking i could barely finish it. difficult to get down, almost too sweet with the higher temp. my wife agreed with this and she aint no beer whimp. not one of my favorite belgiums or one i would probably choose again but a good solid beer.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 7, 2004
(Draft: O'Brien's in SD) Smells wonderfully malty, fruity and very inviting; The flavor lives up to the aroma's introduction, and is likewise malty and very fruity; Moderately sweet flavor, but not at all cloying; Very light carbonation; Dark amber/light brown in color and murky; Off white head is very creamy and eventually settles to a thin layer; Spotty lacing

Enjoy this one even though not a favorite of favorites. It seems to present different new and interesting flavors each time I try it. And I don't mean interesting in that dismissive way. Somewhat tart, acidic, and fruity for sure. The old glasses were kinda cool, but more of an annoyance to me. Glad they started making ones with flat bottoms even if it did kill a bit of history.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pours orangish with a decent white head. Spicy aroma. Tastes very malty, with a finishing burst of sweet-and-sour sauce, tartness, and hints of spice, fruit, and cloves. Not a favorite of mine, but very well made.

750 ml brown bottle. Pours orange, with floaties and a fluffy white head.Aroma is slightly fruity, but malty with hints of vanilla. Palate is smooth and round, thick and syrupy. Flavor is malty with a slight hop finish. I really appreciate the malt flavor on this one.

Pours light red/brown and hazy. Light tan head that quickly fades. Sweet, malty scent. The flavor is sweet and nutty.
