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)

WhoU (125) - Cape Town, - JAN 21, 2013
1L tap. Dark brown/black. Malty and caramel with thick flavour although it is very sweet almost like a dessert stout. Thourougly enjoyed this beer which carries it’s high 11% ABV very well.

Lækker belgisk strong ale. Frisk og behagelig smag. Tilpas med humle og bitterhed.

ardeo (33) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle 33. Bière allant incontestablement vers le sucre : nez et bouche respirant candi, caramel, chocolat ... Bon mais pas pour boire au quotidien car le sucre cache les autres caractéristiques de cette brune.

DrNosha (1020) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
33cl Flasche "Kasteel Bier Bruine-Brune". Dunkelbraunes Bier mit cremigem flachem Schaum. Schweres malzig-süsses Aroma. Dörrpflaumen. Geschmack alkoholisch. Mir zu süss.

McSherman (427) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2016
dunkelbraun, fast schwarz mit flüchtigem hellem Schaum. Das Bier ist ziemlich süß, der malzige Körper erinnert an Kandiszucker, getrocknete Pflaumen, Kirschen und Brot. Nicht so komplex wie andere belgische Vertreter aber dennoch sehr gelungen.

DraftDodger (723) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2016
Copenhagen 9/1 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Almost look like a bottle of wine - even when you look at the alcohol content. Pours very dark reddish brown with small off-white head. Dissapears quite quickly leaving only small patches of foam. Very moderate lacing. Aroma of yeast, caramel and brown sugar. And something slightly sour in the background. Suprisingly not much alcohol. Lively carbonation and creamlike palate. Taste is quite sweet. Sugary caramel. Followed by quite pronounced bitterness which dominates the aftertaste. Sharp tang of alcohol. If you need to get plastered in a hurry I can only recommend this one. It actually taste quite well - so it will be a pleasant journey into stupor.

Hopverdju (206) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
Donker bruin bier met een rode schijn. Geur: vooral zoet, kandij, wat fruitig. Smaak: zeer zoet, karamel, gist, de alcohol is goed gemaskeerd. Gevaarlijk babelwater! Iets sprankelend koolzuur. Redelijk volmondig. Afdronk: zoetig, kandij met een klein zuurtje.

BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2016
The taste of alcohol is very present (a little bit too much), and the aftertaste is bittersweet. Not really my thing.

Samuel214 (213) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2015
Flaska 75 cl hos Kim. Mörkbrun med beiget fingerhögt skum. Spritig doft med mycket russin och toner av lönnsirap. Viss träighet och ekfatstoner.
