Brouwerij Bosteels "Pauwel Kwak"
Belgian Strong Ale (ABV 8%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a sparkling clear light to medium brown with a large (3-4 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and produced poor lacing.

The aroma was very sweet and hoppy with a sweet bread malt, a nice floral hop and a sweet earthy yeast and had notes of caramel, dried dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a strong alcohol presence.

The taste was right off the bat, sweet, malty and a tad acidic with a strong caramel note. The flavor then progressed to be a little acetic with a nice dose of dried fruit with the end having a rather strong alcohol flavor that was left lingering for a nice duration after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a dice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall a nice bold tasting Ale with some really nice malt characteristics that you can only get from a really decent Belgian brew.
