3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
light/medium brown with white head. Average carbonation, a bit of fruit and quite sweet. Very pleasant for every beer fan. Not too abstract. Remember to pour it into a high glass (if you do not have the beutiful kwak glass). Good finish!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle . Dark orange thin white lasting head. Caramel and orange peel run through this beer. Lovely caramel with citrus/orange nose. Caramel in mouth with orange peel/hop dry finish. Good balance, nice beer with toffee but not over the top with the candy sugar.
On draught at The Rake. Bit sickly with strong malt. But drinkable and odd seeing it on draught 3.5/5

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Clear, copper body and a beige head. Caramel, dried fruits, hops, candisugar and spicy notes in the aroma, but maybe a bit weak. Alcohol, dried fruits, sugar, spices and hops and some more alcohol in the flavor. Warming, full-bodied beer with a warming finish. Dried fruits, caramel and spice-notes as well in the finish. A real classic beer, and the story behind the beer goes well with the flavor. (070404)

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2009 2007 Vintage, 2009 re-rate
Muddy reddish-brown colour and the glass is filled with chunks. The aroma is heavy malt, some liquorice and spice. Soft body shows some pleasant brown sugar notes and light spice. Rounded body is smooth until a bit of alcohol kicks in late. Not bad with a couple years on it. 2-6-7-3-14 = 3.2
Fresh version, 2005 re-rate: Golden-brown colour. Slightly spicy aroma. Metallic, slightly sweaty character. Spicy palate. Thin bodied and not at all enjoyable. Score for this rating.

(Bottle) Love the presentation glass that Kwak is served in. Quite original. Good balance of flavor and complexity in this Belgian.
