FlyingWombat (21) - - JUL 10, 2011
Poured from 330ml bottle into glass goblet. Beautiful clear golden-brown colour, medium off-white head that reduced very quickly. Big aroma of sugary toffee and burnt malt, some coffee and spice. Flavour is complex but dominated by caramel toffee with dark chocolate, coffee and marshmellow. Full body with medium carbonation, a little thick but the alcohol is very well hidden making this beer very drinkable. Kwak was a beer that introduced me to real flavour and complexity in beer, it doesn’t hold up as a full on favourite beer for me these days, but is still quality stuff that shows a well made big beer.

goleiro (133) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Aromat i smak dość odmienne - zapach belgijski, nieco alkoholowy, triplowy. Smak złożony, lekko karmelowy, słodowy i landrynkowy. Bardzo ciekawy. Piana niska, barwa bursztynowo-miedziana, przyjemny posmak. Bardzo dobre belgijskie piwo.

kacyper (276) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Aromaty karmelowe, słodowe, alkohlowe, belgijskie, cukierkowe, landrynkowe. W smaku alkoholowe lekko kwaśne. Odczycie w ustach wyklejające, gęste. Overall: Jedno z dziwniejszych piw jakie dane było mi pić.

Cenzura (30) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Aroma: Dried fruits and a lot of sweet malts. Taste: Very sweet, raisins, candied fruits and a little bit of clove on aftertaste. Really full body and a little oily texture. Nice head, great lacing and average carbonation. Very good beer. Price [Warsaw, Poland] 13PLN (bottle).

Levemente amarga e residual seco. Uma boa opção por ser uma cerveja de cor cobre de sabor leve.

ferit (132) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Mooi donker bruin donker goud. Schuim middelmatig. Br van het bier af ruik je al dat hij een zeer fruitige geur heeft. Stroperig en zoet in de mond. Maar toch verfrissend. Voor sommige kan hij te zoet zijn maar ik vind hem lekker. Toch mis ik iets bitters. Een van de betere ales die ik gedronken heb.

milo91hd (112) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 3, 2014
Bottiglia. Colore ambrato carico con una schiuma cremosa fine e persistente. L’aroma richiama malto e spezie mentre al palato attacco in maniera dolce con caramello e frutta, finisce invece con un bel amaro caldo per niente fastidioso. Corpo medio con carbonazione bassa. Peccato non averla bevuta nel suo bicchiere caratteristico.

martjoobolut (711) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 25.10.2015. Pours red amber with off-white head. The small head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruits, yeast, potatoes, burnt sugar. Flavor is very sweet, caramel, malt, burnt sugar, fruits, and yeast. Finish is malty sweet with some alcohol. Overall: well made, but not among my favorites.

BitchPls (552) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Clear, amber brown beer with a small white head. Mild toffee and sweet bread aroma. Body is thin to medium. Slightly bitter at first but soon turns sweeter and warmer. Caramel and bread in the taste as well with some hints of alcohol.
