LLaurin (245) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2016
Pours in reddish-brown with a firm of white head and a really nice nose of bitter almonds. Even some marcipan and dried fruit. Taste is more fruity with cherry notes and red berries. Palate regains the almonds from the nose and adds some sourness. Some heat as well but still lingering style.

Dervock (870) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle - pours reddish brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet dried fruit, sugar and a bit of malt. Taste is burnt sugar up front then a dryer fruity finish. Moderate palate. Hides the 11% well!

MGantzel (193) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2016
Denne belgiske ale har et uklart mørkt udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen har en sød aroma og smager af sød karamel med en frugtig eftersmag. Bitter afrunding. Medium karbonering.

DerGantzel (274) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2016
Aroma of malt, fruits and berries. Brown hazy appearance almost without foam. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Taste of fruits as well. Average lively carbonation, full body, a bit dry finish. Very tasteful!

ronaldtheriot (1726) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Cuvée Du Chateau has a thin, big-bubbled, cream-colored head, a standard, shoe-leather brown appearance, with lots of beige yeast chunks, and a few lacing splotches left on the glass. The aroma is of raisin, spiced bread, prunes, walnuts, and possibly brownies. Tastes is of spiced brown bread, a touch of lemon, some very low-level, balancing hop bitterness, caramel, and even white rice (which, this beer does not contain, to my knowledge). Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, and there is a bit of an unpleasant chalky under-taste. Cuvée Du Chateau finishes just a bit on the drying side. Booze predominates, here. RJT

rjplumer (953) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Sweet dark fruit and grape aroma. Deep brown color. No head at all. Bitter malt and dark fruit taste. Smooth malt feel. Like a port wine. Strong bodied but has a smooth finish. Use this one to convert wine drinkers to beer.
