Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma of bananas and yeast. Appearance is a clear golden amber with a 1 finger light tan head that dissipates quickly. Taste is semi sweet malt and banana. Some booze as well. Palate is very smooth. Overall an excellent beer. Cheers.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter brown amber with a thin light beige head; Aroma of brown sugar malted booze. Flavor is excellent spiced rich in figs & coriander. Thinking malted dark fruits with a touch of barnyard funk. Blended beautifully.

venom666 (355) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2014
Dark amber color with white short-lasting head. Bready and yeasty aroma, with malts and toasted candy. Although it is a 8,4% alcohol, taste is not alcoholic whatsoever, with some fruity and malty notes, with some spices. Aftertaste has a slighty hoppy note.

It is probably one of my favorite beers. Drank it again in Sparrow, the craft beer pub in Bradford. What a glass. Pour amber color with a nice size of head. It is a very yeasty and bready however you can also feel sweetness. The beer is a quite mild and you would never say that it has strength of 8%. Pauwel Kwak is a quite expensive here in Yorkshire however I enjoyed it in a pub in Paris last month where the price of Kwak was around 20 % cheaper than commercial lagers like Stella ☺
