thegreenrooster (3432) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Pour is a dark murky brown with a small tan head. Not much carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt with a little fruityness. Mouthfeel is thick and syurpy. Flavor is sweet molasses and caramel malt. Nothing really stands out after the swallow. Overall this was very disapointing. It’s a flat thick syurpy mess.

Syruppy and sweet but likely my favorite Kasteel beer. Lasts for a while and the taste never gets any worse. Nice on a winter day

paulvanpelt (368) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 Donkerbruin met rode gloed. Medium schuimkraag, waarvan een dun laagje overblijft. Complex en zoetzuur aroma: druiven, caramel, azijn, zure melk, ook duidelijk alcohol aanwezig. Ook wat gebrande mouten. Het zoetzure en de alcohol komen duidelijk terug in de smaak, samen met een prettige bitterheid. Complexer en beter dan Kasteelbier Donker.

langeveld12 (277) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
Pours an average light brown creamy head that mostly lasts. Body is flat black. Aroma contains caramel, orange, lemon, raisin, plum, cherry, spices and alcohol. Flavor starts with light acidity (fruits), moving to light bitter, followed by massive sweetness and light acidity (caramel, raisin). Palate is medium, with creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is a very complex beer where flavors shift all the time. The alcohol is warming and well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad
