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.

minutemat (2043) - 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.

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

Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2015
33cl bottle. It pours a nice brown gloom with a pure black liquid. The foam is, though nearly non existing, full of carbonization and colours brown white. The nose hints at raisins and lovely malts. The taste however has a cherry tongue, and is not that sweet as the ’normal’ dark Kasteelbeer. The bitterness is very subtle, and the beer benefits from raisin flavours, and even some sherry and port notes. The alcohol percentage marks the 11 percent, but it certainly doesn’t feal that heavy. A beautiful medium body beer which is very well balanced.

Dark brown colour with a small tiny head. Aroma of dried fruits, molases, brown sugar, oak and a lot of spices. flavour is complexity of fruity, sugar, caramel notes, with low carbonation, maltiness and low hoppiness. Complex, very good beer.
