Bottle & keg: Filtered
Ingredients: Barley malts, mineral water, wheat, hops and white candy sugar.
Created in the 1980s, and named after an 18th century brewer and innkeeper, Pauwel Kwak, who apparantly developed a shorter version of the traditional English long stirrup glass (which developed into the yard of ale), for coachmen to use.
Kwak is served with respect for tradition in its own Kwak glass. Recognisable, special and just as idiosyncratic as the taste of the beer itself.

dorain (1338) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2019 Aus der Flasche (bbe 01.07.2016) im 2019-06 getrunken. Dieses bronzefarbene Bier ist inzwischen wunderbar durchgereift und hat neben schönen leichte Malznote eine wunderbare Balance. Auch wenn dieses klassischen Aromen für ein Belgisches Starkbier typisch sind ist doch diese Harmonie was dieses Bier hier ausmacht.

ophone (21) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2019 Bought at the brewery by my brother. Acacia appeareance with a fast dissipating head. Sweet smell and malty taste.

vonpolski (64) - Borup, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2019 A very beatifull kobberread beer with a white foam and taste of honey and abricot and dried fruit. One of the most harmonic beer I have tasted. A real teaser because you don’t discover the % (8,4) before it is too late.

DraftWhisperer85 (179) - Sint-truiden, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2019 tja het glas doet dit bier al van ver herkennen, in een blanco proefglas is dit een kanjer: zo wordt je niet afgeleid van de branding

erling1000 (1149) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2019 A copper, foggy Belgian Strong Ale with white head. Aroma is caramel, spice, pepper, choriander, cloves, light prune. Taste is bitter sweet. 75 cl.

koorchuck (1348) - Nacpolsk, POLAND - MAY 23, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2019 Piana średnio wysoka, trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa, ładnie oblepia szkło. Barwa bursztynowa, lekko mętne. W aromacie i smaku suszone owoce, słody, przyprawy, lekkie melanoidyny. Dość słodkie, pełne, delikatnie wyczuwalny, rozgrzewający, przyjemny alkohol. Wysycenie niezbyt duże, biorąc pod uwagę standardy tego stylu. Świetne w każdej kategorii.

vladeath (136) - RUSSIA - MAY 21, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2019 Appearance: amber with thick cream froth Aroma: fruit and malt, and tropical fruits Taste: soft, fruity, slightly spicy. Aftertaste: light bitterness, caramel

NobleSampler19 (2340) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 7, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2019 Am auffälligsten bei diesem Bier ist sicher das Glas mit Halterung, das man bekommt, wenn man es im richtigen Lokal bestellt. Dies wurde aber schon schön beschrieben. Dieses Bier ist zu honigsüß und hält sich bei den Gewürzaromen dafür zu sehr zurück. Kann man schon trinken, aber es gibt bessere.

klu9 (1216) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 20, 2019
UPDATED: APR 20, 2019 Bardzo złożone, owocowe, guma balonowa, przyjemne, pijalne, do tego bardzo pełne.
