An unequalled beer, at the top of the Kasteel spectrum.The aroma and flavour of Cuve are those of a Kasteel Donker, that aged 10 years in the cellars of the castle, noble and strong.

RexTalionis (2963) - 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 (1495) - 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.

Kristall-Knig (2415) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2013
Weinartig in der Nase, schokoladig, malz, Toffee, s. Beginnt s und schokolaadig. Mittelteil fruchtig, kompakt, Malz, Schokolade. Abgang fruchtig, verdichtet, Toffee, zunchst nur leicht alkoholisch, spter wrmend. Schweres Bier, fr meinen Geschmack eher einseitig, zu wenig Tiefe.

Pours cloudy dark brown with a thin quickly receding off-white head. Notes of bubble gum, raisin, toffee. Full bodied with lush carbonation. I think this would have been better fresher.

mcberko (8725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramelized brown sugar, dark fruits, and burnt malts. Flavour is very similar, with burnt caramel malts, caramelized brown sugar and dried dark fruits. Finishes on notes of brown sugar and burnt caramel malts. Quite full-bodied and well-balanced. Great stuff.

Tmoney99 (11700) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex toasted sweet malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex solid beer.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a brown color with a tan head. Aroma of raisin/grape with malts. Medium bodied, a little thinner than expected. A bit heavy on the alcohol flavor as well. Still good though.

jmgreenuk (5616) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 8, 2013
Draft at Rootz, Den Haag. An almost black pour with a reddish hue and a thin tan head with lots of broken lace. The aroma is rich yeasty and with a little spicy fruitiness. The flavour is rich, bitter yeasty with a big liquorice palate which lingers into the aftertaste. A super tasting beer, but given the ABV, not one for a session.
