COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A great beer that does indeed taste like aged Donker. Smooth and delicious, only thing lacking is the aroma. Maybe I can’t smell because I started smoking cigarettes again, but I’ve been getting metallic smells from lots of beers that taste amazing. This is one of those. Sugar and dark fruit upon tasting; blackberry and grape with a spicy, but easy finish. Thick slightly oily mouth-feel. Delicious, would definitely try it again.

harrisoni (14679) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais. Very dark brown ruby colour lasting thin tan head. Yep plenty of alcohol. Its got some rich plum fruit but the burning alcohol is just too much. Tasty though. Perhaps not best beer to have as an aperatif.

33cl. Bottle. Poors dark ruby red with tan head. Aroma spicy, fruits, fresh, cherry, sweet. Taste sweet, some bitters. Mouth-feel thin. More balanced compared to donker.

NikkTwist (1884) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Slightly hazy medium dark ruby red pour. Slight off-white foamy head. Very full bing cherry aroma. High alcohol is mellowed and smoothed by age. Sugar plums. Pomegranite. Dark vanilla sugar. Medium red fruits. Decent but not exceptional.

EpicWardrobe (78) - - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Very dark brown/red with a beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is caramel, alcohol and a bit licorice. Taste is chocolate, licorice, dark fruits (cherries), with a nice spicy finish. Sweet, but not as sweet as the dark Kasteelbier, a bit sour.

Brown, small white head. Aroma is sweetish, more I do not smell because of a cold. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter, a bit alcoholic. Furthermore slightly sweet. nice beer.

RexTalionis (2949) - FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 10/2017. Pours dark brown witha tan head. Mild aroma with some sweetish notes and something pretty sharp, some raisins perhaps also. Sweet dark syrup and herbal notes in taste at first. Sweet dark syrup in finish. Pretty neutral beer with no offencive things really. A bit of the alcohol comes through in the end.

DwarfeD (1427) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 A very complex dark beer. Hints of coffee, caramel and even some notes. The best Kasteel there is.
