by Brouwerij Bosteels

This beer is a deep copper red, with a thick white head that settles quickly. There are strong bready malts, caramel and hints of raisin and banana.

Toffee and sweet caramel, a good malty backbone, hints of that honey, clove, cinnamon, apple, a little raisin and plum - lots of flavours going on in this beer.  Drying out toward the finish, it leaves a pleasant lingering aftertaste, without any cloying, and the slightest hint of the strong alcohol content.  An easy-drinking, strong Belgian ale - and the iconic glass tops it off!.

History of the Glass:  Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and inn owner during the time of Napolean.  To satisfy the thirst of the mail coach drivers, who were not allowed to leave their coaches, he had a special glass blown which could be hung on the coach - hence the 'coachman's glass'.
