0.75L bottle forgotten in the cellar for a few years too many (3.5, according to the label), but still pretty fine and slightly carbonated. Pours unclear orange amber, no head because of the age. The aroma is strongly yeasty and fruity, with some notes of nuts, caramel, plums and dark fruits, spices, alcohol. The taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Very smooth palate, creamy, sticky.

Tap. Pours a nice amber with ecru head. A little more mild than other belgians. Doesn’t seem to be quite as complex as other belgians, but still good. There was a distinct musty sweetness that the Kwak had. Overall, I have to try some more to get really used to the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very decent throughout. Pours orange with not much head. Taste is spicy and has hints of maltiness throughout. Gets better with every drink. Alcohol is under the surface just enough to warm the belly. Give this a try!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a brown gold, head fades with a slim rim around the glass. Aroma is caramel malt, pear, hint of banana and brown sugar. Taste is sweet but the malt is kept in balance. Good berry fruits come through. Finishes with a crisp bite but the sweetness stays on your lips. Really cool Belgian, manages to walk in between the heavy dubbel and a lighter blond. I dig it.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2008 Cloudy red/orange colour with lots of sediment. A long-lasting medium sized off-white head. Nice lacing. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet malt and fruity flavours. Dry and slightly bitter finish. A very nice drop! 330ml brown bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at republic. Sweet aroma with a slight fruitiness as well as big notes of caramel and breadiness (if frutiness and breadiness even count as words....). Dark amber pour with off white head. Love the sweetness on the tongue as well as the nice body. This is a very enjoyable beer.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 330ml It has a really strong aroma of caramel, toffee burnt sweets, and a little fruitiness in there too. It pours with a thin off white head that vanishes quickly over a dark ruby brown body. Its a weird taste that really isnt my thing. It has the burnt toffee and caramel with a slight fruitiness and a overpowering sweetness you would expect from a 8.4%er. I have 3 more of these that might just end up as gifts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy brown, nice beige head that dissipates failry quickly but leaves a halo and some legs. Nice medium to heavy bodied mouthfeel, with aromas of malts, and sugar. I get some dark fruit, a little bit of orange peel, tartness, and alcohol notes. A sweet beer that finishes dry and grainy. Some bitterness as well, but not consistently. This is a very nice Belgian ale, not too acute, and with a decent ABV to enjoy with dinner or dessert. Tasted @ 55F.
