UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a small light brown creamy head that disappeared very quickly and had fair lacing. The aroma was of nutty dark malts and a horse blanket scented yeast with notes of brown sugar, raisons and dried fruit. It tasted sweet, rich and malty with hints of brown sugar at the start but matured into a nice sweet-sour yeasty flavor with notes of dried fruit at the end that left the flavor lasting an average duration on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and nice and creamy in texture. Overall a very interesting brew. Sweet yet bold in flavor, which did a great job of concealing the high alcohol content. One definitely worth trying again.

Bottle at home. Aroma of ripe fruits, yeast, sweet malt, spicy notes, alcohol. Flavour is sweet with just a slight hint of bitterness. Body is disappointingly medium considering the ABV. A very sweet alcoholic Tripel, not undrinkable but not my kind of beer either.

Flaska@Pressklubben. Örtig och jäsig doft. Inleder ganska sött i smaken men övergår sedan till ett hyfsat örtigt och torrt avslut.

-Upfront very earthy,musty w a lightly bitter floral hop note -sweet honey note -well carbonated -alcohol fairly balanced for an 11%er,though theres a warming in the throat -very spicy pepper,alcohol and very dry finish pretty decent Tripel,but cant hold a candle to the top guys (Chimay,Westmalle,La Trappe)

9/20/2006 Beer at home. Very high alcohol content which is not well hidden, but surprisingly drinkable. Nice ale. Quite spicy.

Pours piss-yellow. Way to sweet for me. Alcohol dominates. Metallic, chemical flavor. Not nice

Wow, nice Tripel! Much 'stronger' than expected: and its not that yeasty as well. Overall a refreshing beer

33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Clear, golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma with yeasts, dried fruits, spices, orange peel and subtle pepper notes. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry and bitter with a good warmth from the alcohol. Very enjoyable - however, I see no need for 11 % abv.

First of, I am not fond of Kasteel beers. This one is okay, compared to other tripels and good compared to other Kasteel beers. Taste: dry, coriander, hay, spicy, alcohol.
