Origin: Buggenhout, East Flanders, Belgium
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
ABV: 8%
Firstly it's a wonderful strong ale - lots of warming, rich flavour and a strong kick of alcohol - careful though - at 8% so not one to knock back with wild abandon.

The label is pretty conventional: brown colours (which tend to be favoured by many heavyweight European brewers) and the usual medals stacked up around a historical figure - in this case Pauwel Kwak himself holding one of the beer's specially designed distinctive glasses (which were actually introduced in the 80s according to Wikipedia).

However the reason I posted this is the superb type - a chunky modern blackletter that looks both quirky and fantastic. Moreover being only a four-letter name allows it to dominate the label; and looks all the better for it.
