3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
