It had a silly sounding name; I was a dazed tourist in a French supermarket; I thought, "what the hell". Umm... Looks like a brown bitter. Smells of sickly malt loaf and liquidised puke. Tastes like varnish mixed with malty caramel. I assume the purpose of this drink is to get you drunk? I cant believe anyone would drink it for pleasure.

Batavi (369) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 33 cl. Uitgeschonken in origineel Pauwel Kwak koetsier glas met houten standaard. Mooi amber koperkleurig bier met volle beige schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt. De geur is zoet en kruidig met Belgische gist. De smaak is zoet en en vol specerijen, met tonen van karamel, bruine kandij, kaneel, vanille, witte peper en zacht bittere hop. De afdronk is zoet en kruidig, het alcoholpercentage van 8,4% is duidelijk aanwezig, maar wel op een aangename verwarmende manier. De Pauwel Kwak is een heerlijk klassiek Belgisch bier van brouwerij Bosteels wat je het liefste drinkt uit het speciale en originele Pauwel Kwak bierglas. Blijft een lekker en uniek Belgisch bier.

Amber color clear beer, white small bubbles head (not too much and dont last too long, but Ive used trappist glass, pretty wide). Aroma: sweet belgian fruits esters (peach, banana), caramel, biscuit, slightly alcoholy. Taste: light to medium sweet, biscuity/caramely flavours and belgian esters again. Palate: medium body, dry, alcoholy (its nice, warming up alcohol, but strongly present). Low carbonation. Overall: good beer, too much alcohol on the finish. Without it, it would be extremely drinkable.

floydslip (367) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Medium amber beer with a fizzy off-white head that dissipates slowly with an audible crackle. Strong nose of apple cider, soy sauce, and vinegar. Flavor is a bit less complex than the nose with an overwhelming muskiness that somewhat burns the pallet and masks the other underlying flavors. Some sweetness does eventually come through, along with the apple flavor, but they are subdued in comparison. Decent beer, but not my favorite Belgian ale by a long shot.

(Draft. 03/2006) Sweet, fruity aromas of cookie dough. Deep, amber with nice, foamy, white head. Leaves good lace on the glass. Flavor of cake with a hint of roastiness and just a bit of sharp crystal malt bite. Quite warming although the alcohol is masked nicely. Medium bodied. Quite dry for the sweet tastes of malt and ethanol.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Sweet, but delicious. I really loved the way that it had just the slightest nose of alcohol. That along with some apples and maybe a little banana. Tastes like it smells. Id drink it more often if I could.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle 33cl. It pours a beautiful red/brown clear colour, with a good size head, drink this in the proper glass and it looks even better. Aroma is of malts, raisins and apple, very complex, but can be defined pretty well if you just take your time. Taste is also very good and complex, could detect raisins, spices and a slight trace of grapefruit. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

Dry cheesy yeast with some slight sweet notes and a taste with a kind of flatness throughout. Medium head with bubbly consistancy.
