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.

wozap (100) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Pite w końcu terminu przydatności, dojrzałe. Aromat głęboki, suszone owoce plus kwaskowe nutami szampańskie. Smak to słodowość, słodycz, rodzynki. Krótka goryczka na finiszu i subtelna nuta alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca.

ferrinche (24) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
Dejando de lado lo curioso de su vaso, se trata de una muy buena Strong Ale, además su disponibilidad es bastante alta. La espuma desaparece relativamente pronto, pero su sabor es intenso, al estilo de una típica Ale belga. Si te gustan este tipo de cervezas es claramente recomendable.

Aspetto ambrato-rosso, bella schiuma. Buon profumo, sapore fruttato e caramellato, bell’equilibrio finale tra dolce e amaro. Un’ottima Belgian Strong Ale.

vidmidia (33) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 15, 2015
Âmbar, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma e sabor adocicado de caramelo, frutados e ligeiramente florais. Álcool perceptível, mas sem interferir no sabor. Retrogosto adocicado com amargor equilibrado e sobressaindo no final.
