Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Has some lacing, and hints of caramel, molasses, and spices. Some simple sugars and finishes sweet.

Tap at Silver Creek. Aroma of malt, some banana, alcohol definately prevelant in aroma. Taste was also quite alcoholic, malty, strongly hoped. Some citrus present as well. A decent brew. I would buy again.

Tasted it on draft in Ostende and on bottle at home. I have 3 different glasses for it. A good and not to strong tasting beer. Nice smell. Just be aware if you do not get the kwak in your face.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 14, 2007
Interesting aroma of sugar cane molasses. In the palate, citric and candy, but without attacking. Definitively, an only beer, with personality....................................... Interessante aroma de melao de cana. No paladar, doce e ctrica, mas sem agredir. Definitivamente, uma cerveja nica, com personalidade marcante.

Pours gold with medium head. Also, lots and lots of floaties...so many that I had to pour beer through a strainer so I could finish. Ive had beers with floaties before, but this was unbelievable. An enjoyable beer with mild taste. Went down easy. Finished a 750ml bottle in just under 30 minutes.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Pretty amber for a nelgian strong ale, has a big foamy baige head. Usual strong notes of fruit yeast and alchohold in the aomra, not too complex though. Has some honney desert sweetness in the flavor along with the warming alchohol. An OK beer, not exeptional

I had this on-tap at Nomad in Milwaukee, served in the goofy kwak glassware. The glassware was something special (and impractical!), but I didnt find the beer to be all that exceptional. It is a rather fruity ale with a lot of alcohol phenol flavor that I didnt find all that pleasant. The beer looks great; it is a sparkling amber color with a very fine billowy head. Aroma was alcohol phenols with some faint sweet caramel notes. Flavor was somewhat grapey and fruity with lots of alcohol phenols. Mouthfeel was fine and very smooth. I didnt find this beer to be very drinkable.

A very mild, very frothy beer. Inoffensive, but doesnt really have much character - tastes like alchohol and yeast.

From the Burp Castle, NYC. This was a very tasty Belgian, pretty much what I expect a Belgian Strong Ale to taste like. Great beer, great atmosphere, it put a smile on my face for sure.
