COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kasteel Winter is a unique departure from the standard Christmas ales known for their potpourri of cinnamon and clove. In fact, it stands alone as one of the most decadent and elegant Quadruples of Belgium in its own right. This 11% ABV beer pours a Chestnut brown with an off-white head. The nose is rich, with a warming scent of Coffee, Toffee, and Dried Fruits. The mouthfeel is rich and sweet like that of melted candy. The key ingredients to this delicacy is Belgian Chocolate and Coffee...noteworthy phrases in any brewers handbook. All of these elements come together to provide an after taste reminiscent of a tootsie roll.

33 cl. bottle at home. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Pitch black body. Lovely creamy and smooth coffee cocoa aroma. Sweet but pleasant cocoa coffee caramel flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Well balanced with an alcohol level that is nicely hidden.
