SimonBlok (767) - 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.

Bottle in Antwerp. Dark, sweet, strong. Rich, soft and harmonious beet the aging has taken of the edges.

I really like this beer and think it would be good in a few years but it is seriously so sweet at the moment. Nice flavours otherwise though with rich and intense dried prune notes, molasses, toffee, light cocoa notes. Beautiful Belgian flavours with a huge malt base, light bitterness, lingering flavour for 25 seconds. i think I'll age a bottle.

kingaugusta (286) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2017
Pours very dark amber (almost black) with an off white fine head. Nose is boozy with lots of dark fruits and a touch of caramel. Flavor is a growing burst of plums, raspberry, brown sugar, modest hops and lots of Belgian esters on a hot malt profile. Finish is a bit sticky. Very rich and strong dark Belgian, and quite good.

3.9
Palme (4824) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2017
On tap @ Kulminator. The 2014 version. Tall elegant beigeish head over a dark rusty brown body. Smells superb of yeast, dark sweetness, some red berries and a little alcohol in the back. Delicious. Rush of raisins in the tastes. Red berries, plum and some candied sugar. Sippable all the way. 10.10.2017
