3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Amber (bright) with a dusting of tan head that fades quickly to a thin ring, then nothing. Aroma is spicy/phenolic yeast notes coupled with a light grain sweetness (like malt extract). Some fusel alcohol with a light touch of raisin. Flavor is bready, semi-sweet, touch of higher alcohol and baker’s yeast. Light-to-medium-light oily-syrupy body, soft-light carbonation, little burn. A nice concept, but lacking good head retention and has way too much fusel alcohol to be enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a frothy white head. Malty aroma with some nice notes of caramel. Not much there, mild a bit yeasty, but pleasant. Sweet and malty, some caramel with ok bitterness. A touch of alcohol but not too unpleasant. Not bad for not favourite style.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Een tegenvaller qua aroma - doet slechts denken aan kelder. Met een amber, oranje aroma, helder-wazige gladheid en jammer genoeg minimaal wit schuim. De smaak valt beter mee: medium zoet, licht bitter. Het palet: lichte body, dunne textuur, gemiddeld koolzuur, abrupte afdronk.

Biere qui trouve un parfait équilibre entre alcool et arômes. On y trouve du caramel et du sucre de canne ainsi que des zestes d’agrumes amères type orange.
Une belle robe dorée.
