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.

Shared 75cl bottle. Deep brown colour with a thin tan head. Coffee, coffee, toffee, dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Medium to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced with a lot (did I mentioned) coffee and moka notes and a long sweet very dry finish. Overall, a very good beer.
