yngwie (16614) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle, 75cl corked. An unclear, brown body is topped by a fingerthick beige head. The aroma has dried fruits, mostly raisins, caramel, alcohol and something herbal. Pleasant but not impressive. The same goes for the flavor, it’s mostly dried fruits here as well, and some caramel and alcohol fighting to be noticed. It’s warming, full-bodiedand effervescent on the palate, with the dried fruits and caramel lasting for a good while. Overall, sure a nice one, but a tad too warming I think. 130508

[email protected], Vintage 2010. Raisin, malts aroma. Dark brown, light brown head, good lace. Sweet, raisin, laurel, liquorice. Pretty alcoholic. Actually it tastes like some kind of spirit was added to the beer. I’d say different brew from the regular Kasteel Bruin but then again, I’m not very familiar with that one.

goozen (3892) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle 0,33ltr: 2012 version wich is an dark brown coloured brew with red glow. Taste is sweet with an liquor like burning mouth feel. Hints of dark fruits and vanilla. Good effort to try brew an cellar aged beer of your own.

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2013
From tap @ Brouwerij in Lanaken. Dark brown with a ruby glance, beige head, disappearing. Presented in a nice chateau glass. Nose: spices, vanilla, alcohol, liqueur, candi sugar, some chemical touch, minerals, earthy. Taste: caramel, dark chocolate, spices, sweet finish. Alcoholic, bit carbonated, has got some punch, but missing on something, the parts does not match the whole. Overall good beer, the warming of the alcohol kicks in (ok not that surprising) after some time. good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 2012 edition, date of drinking 15-12-2013. Pours a dark reddish brown with an off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark malt, dark fruits, plum, raisins, some chocolate. On the sweet side, mild finish. Best Kasteel beer I’ve had, proof that they can do it right.

Brandman (2883) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Sark brown clear body, offwhite hwad. Aroma has lots of sugary dark fruits and spicy yeasty malt. Lots of minerals. Flavour has also alcohol warmth. Slick mouth feel.

Calisky (2526) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 8, 2013
Couleur noire, petite mousse beige. Bon nez de cerises noires et caramel.. legerement malté et grillé. Corps et texture moyens, sans trop de carbonation. Gout de caramel grillé, fruits noirs alcoolisés. Fin de bouche assez rapide

Jonb5 (518) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Very dark in colour, opaque, tiny disappearing tanned head, some lacing. S: Tawny port like, plum, booze and fruity esters. T: More bitter than the "Kasteel Donker" mellowed throughout, hints of plum, brown sugar, fudge. Finish dominated by boozy burn. M: Smooth, moderate carbonation, medium to thick body. O: I would say, aside from the bitterness, it was barely distinguishable from the "Donker". If it qualifies as a Quadruple, it doesn’t quite hit the heights others do.

seynie (371) - Tienen, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2013
Ruby brown, almost no head. A lot of body. Some rope berries, a bit of vanilla, alcohol, a bit of acidity but also sweet. Finish dominated by alcohol unfortunately. All in all enjoyable
