Pours from the bottle an orange amber color with a modest beige head. Aroma is caramel and spice. Complex flavors of caramel, green apple, plumb, red grape with a lightly bitter and spicy dry finish. Smooth light palate.

Pours a nice deep amber color. Strong aroma consists of chocolate, malts, and a little bit of a candy/fruity aroma. Very rich flavor. Malty, roasty, chocolate and fruity tang. A bit of spice as well. Lots of stuff going on in this ale. Good stuff.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 From the tap in one of those nifty looking wooden-handled Kwak glasses - It poured a rich orange color with a generous off-white head. The aroma is both spicy and flowery. It’s malty and toffee-like with fruitiness to it. Nice sweet/sour finish. Nice glass, too.

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.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2004
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.

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.
