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.

psilosophy (512) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 16, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Robe très sombre, mousse moyenne mais elle conserve un col de mousse soyeuse. Elle se rapproche de la Donker classique mais avec un côté plus fruité, un peu moins torrefié, une note de réglisse, un alcool un peu plus présent (quoique) et une texture plus moelleuse. Elle me rappelle d’avantage une val Dieu grand cru. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

thanatosti (970) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2012
2012 edition. 33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ traverse, Utrecht. My 400th rating. Pours dark brown with a tin, quickly disappearing beige head. Dark fruits, port and caramel in the aroma. Upon tasting there is also dark roasted malts bordering on coffee and chocolate. Furthermore raisins and more port. Some alcohol warmth but very gentile for a 11% ABV. Long lasting bittersweet aftertaste. A great beer.

GSAP (525) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2012
Aardbei, rozijnen en ander zoet in het aroma. Smaak is kersenbonbons, wat stroop en licht port. Nasmaak is licht port ook. Kraag is snel weg. Wordt wat beter naarmate temperatuur stijgt. 2012 editie.
