Kasteel Winter is a unique departure from the standard Christmas ales known for their potpourri of cinnamon and clove. In fact, it stands alone as one of the most decadent and elegant Quadruples of Belgium in its own right. This 11% ABV beer pours a Chestnut brown with an off-white head. The nose is rich, with a warming scent of Coffee, Toffee, and Dried Fruits. The mouthfeel is rich and sweet like that of melted candy. The key ingredients to this delicacy is Belgian Chocolate and Coffee...noteworthy phrases in any brewers handbook. All of these elements come together to provide an after taste reminiscent of a tootsie roll.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Very deep coppery colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Not much else. And the same goes for the flavour. A surprisingly big coffee beer for being Belgian, but over this I would take the brune/bruin any day.

Almost opaque dark brown beer, small bubbly tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Sweet malts, light floralness. Toffee streak and something vaguely like cheap chocolate. Little spice. Light semi dry finish brings mild marmite. Lots of flavour here but I could not drink much of this, gets chewy.
