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.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Lovely beer. Loses foam quickly, but other then that very tasteful. Molasses base with nuts, raisins, chocolate, toffee, date and a slightly licorice like molasses smooth finish. Has a hint of alcohol, but not overwhelming. Very smooth and sweet beer with great flavor.

Boltle into a tulip. Pours black, with a large tan head that persists. Nose is dark fruit and caramel. Taste follows the nose. Very well-balanced, and extremely tasty. Outstanding.

Murky brown/ ruby color with a small beige head. Aroma is ripe red fruits, raisins and plums with some alcoholic boozenes. Flavor is same ripe plums and raisins, with a touch of yeasy spicyness. Heavy palate, warming and complex but a bit to rough,

75 cl. bottle, shared. Dark, amber colour with a creamy, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel, chocolate, toasted malts and dark dried fruits. Liqourice and a slight herbal hops note. Taste is lightly sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with a wiff of alcohol. Excellent dark, strong Belgian.

Mörkt brun öl med inslag av rött. Doft och smak av maltsötma, karamell, torkade mörka bär och frukter. Lättare kryddighet från jästen.

jelledebont (39) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Gevaarlijk bier: zoet, drinkt gemakkelijk weg, waardoor je het alcoholpercentage gauw vergeet. Aroma is iets veelbelovender dan de smaak, maar al met al een erg lekker bier.

maekchu (2764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake Taniguchi). 2012 vintage. Roast malt nose, with deep dark fruitiness, some oxidation and phenolic notes. Boozy dark fruit initial flavors, raisin, prunes, and brandy-like notes. Medium body, some alcohol burn. Very tasty and rich, but a bit thin-bodied for a quad. Very warming.
