afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, dried fruit, and some yeast spice. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel that finishes slightly sweet. A very good beer with a very interesting glass to match.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
750 ml bottle. Shared with Bartzilla. I dont really remember too much about this one because I was kinda loopy by the time we got to this one. But, it was nice enough. A little sweeter than I like a Belgian ale to be, but still pretty good. Apparently, Kwak is the house beer at many establishments in Belgium. Not a bad beer to be considered the "house beer".

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2008
Amber with a fine sized head. Sweet malty caramel aroma, nice but a little weak. Caramel yeasty flavour, nutty some hop balance and a gentle tart sensation. Quite a nice beer, and more than just an unusual glass

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
bottle cellared for about a year or so.....pours a semi-opaque reddish brown with a thin soapy white head....aroma of sweet malt very bready and biscuits..... flavors of malt and a sweet caramel and toffee character that is quite nice and not to mention some peppery spice. carbonation is definetely apparent and the residual sweetness lingers on for awhile. mouthfeel was somewhat thin i thought and could have used a little more body.
