Pours rich, dark mahogany colour. Aromas of boiled sweets, over-ripe fruit, cloves. Palate is rich, good texture, very smooth. Taste is fruity, bitter-sweet balance. Very much like a Chimay Bleu. Classy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear deep mahogany, near black in glass, thin foggy off-white head. Sweet and fruity, belgian yeast, over-ripe fruits, banana, apple, also malt, raisins, alcohol mostly hidden. Warming up brings chocolate. Soft but lively carbonation, sweet, dries bit to finish which is long and fruity. Tasty, very long finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at pm. Black colour, no head. Nose is alcohol, with some roasted notes. Taste is low bitterness. Alcohol is dominant in the mouthfeel. Nice, but rememberd much better. Might be the fact that it was one of the first belgian beers I’ve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear deep ruby with one finger of fizzy light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark dried fruit, caramel/toffee, bready yeast, leather, spices. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Medium-light body, lively carbonation, lingering boozy finish. (4/5)
I wasn’t completely convinced by this one at first. I think my ultimate objection is that the body really seems too thin and light for the flavours and the very high ABV, and that’s not really helped a lot by the lively carbonation that remains throughout. Don’t get me wrong: it’s quite pleasant as it is, and the high ABV, though present, is never overwhelming or intrusive, but I can’t help feeling like it would have been more appropriate had the body been a bit heavier, and the carbonation a bit softer. On the other hand, it’s very Belgian in flavour, and drinking it transports me back to the little side streets of Brugge, or off Grand-Place in Brussels. The flavours open as it warms, making it enjoyable to sip and linger over. (16/20)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mahognifarvet ufiltreret Belgian Strong Ale med mindre offwhite skumtop, som svinder til kant og overflade. Rolig med brune nuancer.
Aromaen indeholder vinøsitet af blomme-, rosin- og gærnoter. Alkoholen er godt skjult.
Meget rig og dyb smag med syrlighed, sødme og solid bitterhed. Sidstnævnte indeholder noter af ristet malt, gær og chokolade. Sødmen står stærkere i smagsbilledet længere henne i aftempereringen.
Kasteels Cuvée har en rund og solid krop med en kraftig karbonering. Konsistensen er olieret og afslutningen bittersød og lang.
Overall: Indeholder flere indtryk af Stout, end jeg umiddelbart forestillede mig. Hvilket ikke taler mod den. Flot øl med en rig smag!
75 cl, flaske, 11.0 % ABV, version 2015, BB: 20/08/2020, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Saveur Biére - Deep ruby, thin white head. Nose is a boozy Christmas cake, loads of fruit, malt and caramel. Taste is helped by a nice oily rich mouthfeel, warming on the way down. Very rich, very indulgent.
