datrael (370) - Krakw, POLAND - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Solidny belgian strong ale - słodowy, zbożowy, dość słodki, przyjemnie rozgrzewający ze słodowo, fenolowym aromatem. Całkiem pijalny, idealnie wpisuje się w belgijską klasykę. Niezłe piwo

Pongauer (84) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2016
Kwak, probably the most iconic beer in Belgium if not the world. Every beer enthousiast should at least have tasted one kwak from the special courier glass once in their live. And yes, it does taste better in the glass. Why? Who knows!

Moravius (1199) - Beijing, CHINA - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Flasche (33 cl) von Jenny Lous Sanlitun Store, Peking. - Goldbraun, leicht trb, dunkler Schaum. - Nase angenehm herbfruchtig-karamelmalzwrzig mit unbestimmter Gewrznote und herber Frucht. - Antrunk s und schwer karamelmalzig mit wrziger, schwerer Malzbittere. Anklnge an Lakritz, gebrannte Mandeln und berreife Banane. Erinnert an gebrannten Zucker, dabei nicht zu s. Im Hintergrund leichte Hopfenherbe. Der stattliche Alkoholgehalt ist gut kaschiert. Dominierend bis in den Abgang bleibt der reiche Geschmack von gebranntem Zucker. - Eine echte Malzbombe von wuchtiger Flle, auf eigene Weise beeindruckend. (Verkostung: 12.8.2016.)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 An aproachable belgian beer. malty aroma, Quite malty, salty and sweet then bitter. Hints of toffee, pepper, anise, caramel, pears, apples (overipe). Actually quite pleasant, and even complex. I think the spicyness dominates it a bit too much however, and the flavours don't quite combine.

caesar (6857) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2002
This beer has probably the most beautiful glass, but too bad it doesnt taste the same way. I expected a lot, but i came up with disappointed feeling, though it isnt a bad beer.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2002
Off-white medium firm foam tops a limpid medium-dark amber brew with quite lively medium-fine bubbles. Discreet herb aroma. Bitter-sweet tasting foam, the beer itself sweet herby-malty taste with rather bitter ending. Medium-bodied, this beer is a bit on the sweet side, with a bitter ending, hence in my view lacking balance and individual character.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2002
Copper/ruby red. Little if any head on this one. Definite yeasty and spicy notes in the aroma and in the taste. Very sweet, maybe a little too much so. Can definitely feel the alcohol, although it seemed to be relatively well concealed.

Famous for its glass. Malty, hoppy, something bitter.
