An unequalled beer, at the top of the Kasteel spectrum.The aroma and flavour of Cuvée are those of a Kasteel Donker, that aged 10 years in the cellars of the castle, noble and strong.

Michael27 (804) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2016
Aus der Flasche getrunken (aus holländischer Händlerlieferung). Dunkelstes Rotbraun mit stabiler, massiver weißer Schaumkrone. In der Nase etwas zurückhaltend. Durch die Alterung voller und massiger geworden. Massiver Malzkörper, der mit Fassaromen und Sherry durchsetzt ist. Anspruchsvoll und herausfordernd.

peponi (1466) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2016
Aroma: belgian notes, phenols, bandages. Appearance: dark brown color and creamy head. Taste: belgian phenols, peachy, roasted dark malts, zesty, alcohol is well-covered, dried fruits, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, zesty finish. Overall: Really good belgian ale, aroma is quite strange, but the whole beer is nice.

BlueGaljoen (116) - FRANCE - JUL 25, 2016
Trčs belle bičre sombre, brune, racée. Atypique, du fruit műr, du caramel, et notes carnées. Bičre qui se mérite ŕ déguster en prenant son temps; sur un plat de charcuterie.

vinivini (1266) - BELARUS - JUL 21, 2016
Deep brown, moderate off-white head. Average retention. Thick lacing. Sweet nose of candy, prunes, dry fruit, caramel sugar, yeast. Medium to full body. Oily to creamy palate. Complex semisweet taste. Lots of brandy, dark fruit, very vinous, light bitterness combining hops & alcohol. Fruity yeast. Very good.

Another very solid Belgian strong from a fantastic Belgian brewery. Sharp, very spicy that lingers on the palette. Picked up in A’dam in 2016.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 19, 2016
Kis habja gyorsan eltűnik. Színe egészen sötét barna. Illata kifejezetten vörösboros jellegű, de a háttérben ott van a komlós, fűszeres jelleg is. Íze elsőre kesernyés, a komló fűszerességével megspékelve, de rögtön utána előtör egy dohos vörösboros íz. Lecsengéskor némi aszaltgyümölcsös jelleg is feltűnik. Hosszú utóíze a komló keserűjére és a vörösbor tanninosságára épül. Nagyon fincsi bor... izé akarom mondani sör... vagy mi.

DijkBier (99) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle pours very dark ruby-brown with a beige head. No strong aroma for this type of beer; some sweetness and also plums. Taste of roasted malts, some caramel and licorice, dark fruit, plums, with a slight sour element. It’s a nice beer, but maybe expected more richness and character with a beer of this ABV and maturity.

beerman33190 (87) - FRANCE - JUL 13, 2016
Pours rich, dark mahogany colour. Aromas of boiled sweets, over-ripe fruit, cloves. Palate is rich, good texture, very smooth. Taste is fruity, bitter-sweet balance. Very much like a Chimay Bleu. Classy.
