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

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a modest, creamy white head. The bold aromas are instantly recognizable: molasses, anise, banana. Much lighter body than comparable Belgians; somewhat too sweet for my taste, though, and very alcoholic. Great look, however, and it earns appearance points for its innovative glass.

Bière assez bonne qui se rapproche des classiques tout en conservant le goût d’une bière de qualité

Belle bière d’un blond ambré. Alcool et malts bien présents, un classique efficace belge. N’oublions pas de mentionner son verre très typique !

Malty, sweet almost syrupy Belgian beer with caramel tones, amber colour and white head.

Marsipan och typiska belgiska toner. Bärnstensfärgad/red amber färg. Lätt skumkeona. På Black Lion får man den i världens tuffaste glass

Karamell, bröd att få in den i detta speciella glas gjorde hela intrycket mkt bättre. Mustig och en vacker bärnstens/röd färg.

This first thing that attracts you is the glass itself. Smells pretty sweet and tastes fruity and very original

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a hazy dark copper to red body with an off-white head that laces the glass well. Quite strong aroma with pleasant notes of Belgian yeast, spices, honey and dust. There flavours are a bit too weak and is too much dominated by alcohol. There are however nice notes of Belgian yeast, spices and in the back there are dried fruits, vanilla and caramel. Moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Medium body, dry texture and moderate carbonation. Without the Kwak glass this is a quite ordinary Belgian strong ale, IMHO.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 month after BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

The first thing that stands out is the unique glass in wich it is served. It is amber colored with a lasting off-white head. medium carbonation. Fruit and malts in the taste with a slightly sweet aftertaste a great beer to drink on an entire night.
