Had it in bottle and on draft. My favorite beer so far. Long lasting taste, nice dark colours and good foam. In my opinion better than Westvleteren 12.

Trinity Hall - This is a great beer if you can find it. Trinity Hall serves it in a long glass with a round bottom and a wooden stand.

CanCrusher (904) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Bright amber colour, lively carbonation, for a finger big creamy beige head, that slowly sits down into a nice crown. Strong sweet fruits aroma, caramel and resin. Medium to full body, starts with sweet taste, turns on bitter and finish with heavy bitternes, that lasts long. 8% alc. is noticable, but not overhelming. Great beer!

minutemat (4153) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2015 Keg @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a proud caramel aroma bursting forth. Taste is much more vibrant than bottle with smooth caramel and a sweet woody warmth. Absolutely magnificent.

Kwak is a well known beer abroad, even if it is more commercialised I still recommend this one because it’s taste is so great! and the glass that goes with it is so special to drink it with.
