330ml bottle, thanks to Finn. Deep mahogany coloured body. Moderate, tan-coloured head. Not much lace. Kahlua coffee liqueur aroma and even stronger notes of kahlua in the taste profile. Added by candied fruits. Integrated alcohol. Not too sweet. Different and actually quite good (Tromsø 07.02.2014).

Eigenlijk kan ik er niet veel meer over kwijt dan dat het ruikt en smaakt naar haagse hopjes. Of koffielikeur. Best grappig, maar eenmalig.

What a kick this one has! Pours dark brown / ruby with little head, and almost flat carbonation-wise. Aroma reminds me of a northwest coffee stout., with some dark chocolate thrown in to boot. Scent of alcohol hovers on top. Dark chocolate is more prominent in the taste, some sweet molasses, whiskey barrel. Alcohol heat on the backplane. A lot of different styles seem to be in play here.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kasteel Winter, bottle of 750 ml, corked and caged, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 11%
A very dark brown colour on the body, with deep red ruby shades once hold against the light. One finger of tan head, with good density but not exactly thick. Very good retention though. Light lacing on the glass.
Great aroma, plenty of chocolate and all kinds of it, bitter chocolate, sweet chocolate, mocha, along with some light coffee and hints of alcohol.
Taste is the same, lots of chocolate and mocha, only now the alcohol is stronger and more notable. Not overly sweet as the aroma led me to believe, there is a light acidity on the finish.
Overall a very good beer, this would be great to accompany a chocolate dessert, let’s see if I can find some more of it.
Medium thin body, a bit high on the carbonation.
