COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong Belgian brown ale.
After extensive tasting, trying to fulfil increasingly strict requirements, the brewmaster obtains a creamy, dark Belgian brown ale: Kasteelbier. The quality of the past is still unmatched and the beloved taste is very much of the present. Kasteelbier is a dark, artisanal beer, soft and mild, full and creamy. It can age for many, many years, as indicated on the bottle. 11% abv, serve at 12°C (54°F) (Translation by Martinus)

deepeary (207) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
330 ml bottle from LCBO. BB Nov 2018. Pour dark brown, reddish in the light. Minimal and short-lived off white head. Smells like deep sweet fruit esters, Plums, cherries, raisins, some brown sugar, some booze. Ditto for the taste. Juicy fruitiness. Allen’s apple juice on steroids. Some port-like qualities. Syrupy mouthfeel. Warming. Dessert in a glass. Very sweet but somehow not too sweet.

luser2000 (91) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2014
Ez egy fantasztikusan jó barna belga, ALE. Összeragadt a szám tőle, de felidézte az igazi sörpincék illatát, hangulatát.

degbert (1227) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights and an incredibly high, fine-grained, lacy, tan head. Nose is baking chocolate, smoke, dates, figs, Worcestershire sauce, and a touch of herbs (marjoram?). Sweet up front, with a definite boozy punch and roasty cafe au lait note; chocolate and raisin kicks in after. Reminds me of dark rum over vanilla ice cream or a good fruitcake (and yes, there are good fruitcakes). Confectionery. Finish is long, warm, and has some vanilla extract notes peeking out. Good beer as we slide towards winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

agent_persik (455) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2014
Deep red color, small beige head. Aroma of ripe dark fruits, caramel, spices, banana, yeast. Taste is sweet with lightly bitter and spicy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very sweet, but quite enjoyable ale.
