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 12įC (54įF) (Translation by Martinus)

Dark with red tinge, not much head. As a pleasant surprise, the alcohol isnít really noticable in the flavor, although it does pack a kick that is noticed as the glass nears empty. Some notes of caramel, and raisins. Overall, not bad, would go well with Scottish Christmas pudding.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown in colour. Aroma of figs, raisins, prunes and dark chocolate malts. Assertive alcohol up-front, then some light chocolate malt, dark fruits and some spices. Slightly sweet medium body, high carbonation. Finishes with a long alcohol burn. This needs some time to age.

Aroma van karamel en chocolade, en ietwat vanille. Kleur is rood, bruin, met geel schuim en wazige gladheid. Smaak: zwaar zoet, licht bitter. De body is zwaar, met olietextuur, zacht koolzurig palet en lange afdronk. Lekker bier!

jjsint (2047) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Tap at Jedna 3, Warsaw. Cola brown, translucent. Not so much carbonation. Light nutty and vinous aroma. Taste is simultaneously incredibly sweet and completely delicious. Like being bathed in a chocolate eclair... normally I donít like beers this sweet but Iím happy to make an exception here. Body is flatter than I would have liked, but that doesnít detract all that much from the beauty of this wonderful beer. Not a world beater, but still delicious.

maekchu (3267) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Translucent reddish-brown color, no head or lace. Sweet roasty initial, brown sugar, bready, sugared raisins, plums, dark chocolate, and plenty of fumes. Has a small wine-like feel. Medium-heavy body, and very warming. Complex and way way sweet (but not really cloying). Overall, it hides its hefty alcohol content fairly well.

Patdelichte (205) - - SEP 16, 2015
Hele donkere kleur met mooie crème schuimkraag. Zwaar bier met 11% maar dat zou je zeker niet zeggen als je een slok neemt. Je proeft de alcohol nauwelijks en bier heeft een hele zachte smaak. Chocola/karamel met een licht bittere nasmaak. Zeker lekker bier maar iets te weinig smaak/karakter.
