A complex beer , with a nice smouth bitterness in the end. What a great beer. Can’t say anything negative about it. Aroma was malty sweet and a touch of caramel. Flavor also had the same as the nose but a little sweeter, grassy, and yeasty.

On tap at My Place, Newtown, CT. Have to disagree with Oakes on this one. Found it enjoyable, no matallic or sweat. A bit of spice, nothing too distinguishable though. But can anybody explain the origins of the funky glass?

Tap, served in an official Kwak mini-yard. Tall and golden appearance, opaque = great. Extremely smooth, sensual feel, aroma of bright fruits, banana; flavor of caramel slight bite to the end. A wonderful ale, will try to get this one again soon!

Poured a light brown color with a nice fluffy head that provided adequate lacing. The aroma was caramel malty and even had some grassiness and honey in it. The flavor had all of the above with a little bit of a sweet finish and some yeast in the flavor profile. Came across too sweet and a little thick and syrupy for the amount of flavor, but not bad. Alcohol was nearly abasent.

My absoute favorite beer.! Beautiful amber colour, fruity in the scent, sweet taste, chocolate and thick. I drank it from the original glass, which have an interesting story behind it: The glass is shaped the way it is because the bartenders in old time, could serve it to passengeres and drivers on the horse-carriages whitout them stopping. Then the glass would hang in a special mounted holder and no beer would spill... Great story, great beer.

Dark coppery color, big light brown head. Spices, medium alcohol, caramel and mild chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is better than aroma: chocolate, licorice, medium alcohol and spices, aftertaste is warm with dryness and some caramel.
