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)

Flaske. Farven er mørk chokoladebrun, og aromaen er ligeledes chokolade, dog med en anelse citron i. Smagen passer til duften og udseendet: Chokolade og sirup. Meget sød øl.

Ysok02 (755) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2015
Robe brune, presque noire, mousse de persistance moyenne. Nez sur un coté médicamenteux, évolue vers le camphre, le chocolat noir amer. Bouche à l’attaque crémeuse, un coté chocolaté et rond mais un manque d’ampleur de structure en comparaison avec la malheur, finale ronde sur la sucrosité. Une bière riche, de dessert.

Tomada en numerosas ocasiones. La ultima vez en Cerveceria Kraken. Potente cerveza belga tostada de 11º. Oscura, potente, remate dulce. En el amplio campo de cervezas belgas una de mis preferidas. Para disfrutar lentamente.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a darkbrown colour with a beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, malts, syrup. Taste is very sweet with notes of brown sugar, malts, and something like chemical sweetner. Very sweet finish. Texture is oily with average carbonation. Too sweet for my taste

For such a highly rated beer, I found it awful. Shared a bottle with Dad and we both poured it out. Absolute syrup, way too sweet with a tangy metallic taste.
