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.

mansquito (3965) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours murky dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is fruitiness and maltiness. Taste is a bit sweet. Plenty of maltiness. Loads of fruit. Boozeis plentiful. Banana and dark fruit make a presence. Not bad. But this is a lot of beer in a beer.

Icedwarf (599) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en krachtig, chokolade, caramel, vanille en iets van anijs. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft lang hangen.

Much too sweet. One of the worst beers I have ever drunk in my entire life. Beer is not Coca Cola.

2012 bottle
Pours dark brown/coppery with almost no foam. Aroma and flavor- sharp, phenolic, yeasty, raisins, sweet caramel. Overall taste was sweet, dubbel alike, not too complex, medium bodied, even a bit watery texture. Pleasant but lucks complexity as belgdarkale.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
75cl 2012 bottle @ 12th Shrewsbury Bottle Share, April 15, courtesy of blackhaddock. Pours a murky dark brown with minimal tan head. Oak-aged Old Ale in aroma and taste, smooth dark flavours on the mellow side of rich with caramelised brown sugar and a restrained sweetness. Not sure I could have too much of this.

EtTuCthulhu (1320) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2015
The beer pours a very dark brown with red highlights and a small brown head. The aroma blends booze, brown sugar, and oak, and it?s a bit overwhelming. The taste is mildly sweet, mildly umami, and a touch sour with a aftertaste that is quite dry and tastes heavily of oak. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium body, and a flat carbonation.

Nee, ik ben gewoon geen fan van donker bier. Ongetwijfeld een goed biertje maar ik hou er niet van. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
