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.

tasted the 2012 edition from the bottle, dark brown, almost no foam when poured in in a normal way, strong caramel scent, strong caramel taste (bit burnt) and you feel/taste this one is 11° in alcohol - nice one!

Dark red-brown with a fast tan head. Nose is fruity and leans toward cherries, with a little booze and alcohol. Flavor is a little less extreme and had the usual belgian strong elements. Finish is long and sweet. Good ale.

auerbrau (3197) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 26, 2013
2010. 750mL bottle. Compote, cooked dried fruit and sherry nose. This is a sweet, sweet, sweet beer. I don’t care for that. Hot alcohols, old jam, and raisins. Lemony. There is something enjoyable about the aged malt profile, but the sweetness and oxidation are a little overbearing.

jackl (6111) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2013
Tap @ Gollem. Ta to Scopey for the pour. The appearance is deep brown with a small off-white head. The nose is candied roast apple, mild spicy Belgian yeast. Sweet taffy and red fruits. Some brown bread. The taste is more of the same. Quite a sweet, smooth toffee aspect to this beer. Very rich and sweet. Quite pleasant and smooth for the chunky ABV. Overall, pretty solid stuff. A winner.

Good depth of flavour, smooth and well balanced.
