Big red color with floating particles and a large creamy head. Aromas are sweet malt - toffee and caramel. Big, rich, and creamy. Good malt flavoring throughout, mostly consisting of sweet toffee and caramel. Satisfying.

No information about the hops and malts in detail but you must drink this beer in a Kwak glass. Nice amber cloudy beer with very good cappuccino head, light sweet, thin texture, medium body, banana, yeast is very dominant, nice finish, compare a little with Leffe (I have a 0.33l bottle with best-before 27/01/2018 29 02:33)

Batavi (398) - 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.

Blake (398) - Orange, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
Pours a hazy amber with lots of white head. Very frothy and carbonated. Aroma of alcohol and spices. Flavor of alcohol, yeast, and caramel. Finishes dry and bitter. Alcohol aroma and flavors just too strong for a Belgian Strong. Not hidden within the beer well at all.

falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Light aroma but acidic (not in a bad way). Pours a nice golden brown. Light malty fig and yeast flavor that leaves the pallet coated. I’m a Belgian fan and this fits right in.

I drunk it on the Rhone bank, in a classic Belgian glass, not in the famous swan neck’s shaped glass sorry. It pours brown clear with a medium foam head. Sweet toffee flavors dominate that malty profile. Some esters, a light bitterness, nothing exciting but nothing wrong.

Snegurochka (397) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2013
330ml [email protected] Santo Brevitore with Camilla&Kirsti. Pours a bronze coloured body with big head and fair lacing. Honey, bread, caramel and some reisin. Mirrored also in taste, but also some pepper and honey. The girls tried it and was excited! Alcohol well hidden. 16.05.13

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - APR 29, 2010
bottled. pours murky amber with a medium off white head. aromas of grape, orange, dough and raisin. Alcohol dominates the palate. Flavors are of malt. it is surprisingly bitter with lower sweetness than i expected. It lingers on the palate with the astringent effects of alcohol. Ive had much better belgian ales.
