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 @ WWT3. Hazy brown pour. Aroma is sugars, spices, cardamom, malty and somewhat fruity. Flavor is sweet and spicy with loads of spices and some cardboard. A bit boring.

Drank a 0.75 2010 bottle a while ago and still have another: this review however is from an on-tap glass I had in the Antwerp Gollem on Sunday 16 Dec 2012. Deep, dark brown with ruby red hints: on top a tan coloured crown of foam that hung around for the whole tasting. Sweet malty molasses with Port like strength and flavours fill the nose and mouth; this is one tasty beer. Small sips are the order of the day, don’t want to rush this or take huge gulps, let it slip down the throat in minute quantities and savour the moment. Really enjoyed it: this sort of brew is one of the reasons I love going to Belgium so much!

Tried this beer at Ebenezer's Pub, it was a blend of the 10, 3 & 1 year old Kasteel. This dark brown rich brew with a heavy light brown head.Nice Lacing. The taste is amazing, similar to a port, can detect the Belgian yeast. This is an especially sweet and malty beer. It ends dry, and you can't barely detect the alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brune rougeâtre foncée, pétillance légère, quasi pas de mousse. Sucre candi d’abord puis réglisse et caramel. Comme toujours avec la Kasteel, l’alcool est très présent.

(Bottle, 2001) Body is dark with solid thick head. Aroma has background cherry with light chestnut, alcohol comes very high. Taste is brilliant balance with cherry notes, coriander, liquorice. Body is low as well as carbonation. Exceptional.

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
