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.

Kristall-König (2606) - Oldenburg, - JAN 25, 2013
Weinartig in der Nase, schokoladig, malz, Toffee, süß. Beginnt süß und schokolaadig. Mittelteil fruchtig, kompakt, Malz, Schokolade. Abgang fruchtig, verdichtet, Toffee, zunächst nur leicht alkoholisch, später wärmend. Schweres Bier, für meinen Geschmack eher einseitig, zu wenig Tiefe.

Como as demais belgas, é uma boa cerveja. Predominância do doce. O álcool é muito perceptícel.

Sigmund (6118) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2016
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 11%. Colour mid between mahogany and ebony, moderate to low beige head. Lovely aroma, malty with strong notes of brown kandij sugar and caramel, also notes of dark dried fruits, hints of mild spices, leather and oak. Malty and medium sweet flavour, notes of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and caramel again, also hints of mild spices, chocolate and oak, moderate hops in the finish. Moderately warming mouthfeel. Excellent stuff.

Schlumpfhunter (77) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2016
Farbe schwarz Schaum: sämig fein. Optisch ein Guiness. Nase: säuerlich, Alkohol, Röstaromen, süßer Malz. Geschmack: erst feinsprudlig frisch, dann kommt aber sofort der Alkoholhammer: die 11% hauen rein! Das kommt auch mit einem vollen süßlichen Malzhammer, der auch das Röstaroma ziemlich übertüncht. Der Nachgeschmack ist dann auch Alkoholmalz. Ziemlich coole Kombination, wobei für mich persönlich der Alkohol-Malzgeschmack normalerweise zu heftig ist. Heute mit kaputtem Zahn ist das reine Medizin!

dnicolaescu (1520) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 23, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark ruby, beige head. Vinous aroma with notes of oak or green fruit stone and alcohol. Taste: big dark caramel sweetness, balanced by warming alcohol. Alcohol makes it feel dryer and more spicy. Good, but no better than Donker.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2016 Almost no head. Caramel and syrup aroma. Obvious sweetness at the first touch, then some herb spicy. Full body and long finish.
