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.

Bottle at home, done from memory, rating is just for my own. I will edit if I drink it again, very good beer.

330 ml bottle. KACU1017A. BB 10/2017. Dark reddish brown colour with a big foamy off-white head. Brown sugar, sweetness, mild yeast and dark maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is quite boring, yeast and malt. Hmm... Not very impressing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ Kafé Belgie. Dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee, fruity esters, alcohol and some chocolate. Flavor is sweet dark malt, alcohol heat, fruity and vanilla. Medium body with soft carbonation. This is a really good beer, lots of rich malty flavor balanced by the alcohol and fairly dry.

Ruby color with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, liquorice, baked apples, caramel. Taste is light to medium sweet, with dark fruits flavor. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Nice but I was expecting to be better.

Bottle @ Holiday Inn Iowa City picked up in KC. 2010 release. Pours a dark reddish brown appearance with a thin, bubbly, light brown head. Caramel, candy sugar, a bit oxidized, plum, a bit fruity aroma. Goopy, light chocolate, somewhat spicy, toffee, dark fruity flavor that really tastes like an aged Belgian ale. Not bad.

McTapps (5926) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2013
Bought a 0,75 l bottle for a really good price at Stassen Vin in Belgium (Aubel) . Had so high hopes into this one and I got proofed right. Deep light cloudy dark brown colour with steady, creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of gorgonzola cheese ( fermented cheese). Taste of delicious malts, hops, nuts, torf, whiskey and bittersweet milky chocolate, Very nice and quaffable to drink, enjoyed it a lot.

It may be a 10 year old donker but it still hits the points. Nice caramel and sweets in the back but the decent sourness, lasting from start to end, gives that one some great aroma. Heavy beer tasting really easy. A very classy and best Kasteel to that point.
