albinotron (37) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A great beer that does indeed taste like aged Donker. Smooth and delicious, only thing lacking is the aroma. Maybe I can’t smell because I started smoking cigarettes again, but I’ve been getting metallic smells from lots of beers that taste amazing. This is one of those. Sugar and dark fruit upon tasting; blackberry and grape with a spicy, but easy finish. Thick slightly oily mouth-feel. Delicious, would definitely try it again.

Aus der Flasche (Vintage 2010 - bbe 27-05-2015) im 2018-01 getrunken. Oh ha ein mindestens 7 Jahre altes, fettes Kasteel - perfekt ausgereift und einfach nur süffig. Klasse!

kapusil (1565) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2018
0.75l bottle vintage 2016. Dark ruby body with a light brown head. Sweet aroma with notes of caramel, dark sugar, raisins, plums and some spices. The taste is quite alcoholic first, but it mellows out and then chocolate, caramel, plums, raisins and spicy hops show up. It's easy to tell that this is a strong beer both from the aroma and the taste, but I like it.

Erzengel (9783) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
75cl bottle, 2010 vintage. Wine-like beginning. Intense rich and thick. Lots of dark caramel, molasses, hints of wood. The beer is dense, extreme deep, quite dry. Molasses, caramel, rich and round dar malt with still a high drinkability. Very interesting brew, and great!

Rugamu (190) - SPAIN - DEC 23, 2017
Gran cerveza con un aroma dulce y platanos. Espuma poco persistente y luego en boca entra demasiado f�cil, demasiado, tiene un sabor dulce que no empalaga. Estoy deseando repetir.

2017-12-09 - 0,33L Flasche vint. 2012 - bb 04-2020 Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz, beige Krone. Aroma: Malz, Toffee, dunkles Trockenobst, etwas metallisch. Geschmack: Malz, Karamell, Trockenpflaume, wärmend alkoholisch im Ausklang.

3.6
SimonBlok (876) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: very deep mahogany with medium, off-white head. Aroma: nutmeg, clove, plums, caramel. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of clove, molasse, plums and coriander. Pretty boozy. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A little too boozy, just like a lot of the other Kasteel beers.

KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle in Antwerp. Dark, sweet, strong. Rich, soft and harmonious beet the aging has taken of the edges.
