Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml champagne-style bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a medium to nearly deep brown, with a low light tan head. The nose shows fairly rich aromas of molasses and raisin. An underlying yeast note comes through, reminiscent of Duvel’s strain, as does an interesting subtle lactic note. The palate shows assertive carbonation up front, before more molasses/toffee, assertive bitterness (perhaps from the alcohol?), and a note of alcohol toward the finish. Again, underlying yeast notes come through, adding an almost cooling tropical fruit ester toward the finish of the beer. The finish lingers for a moment, showing slight alcohol and residual sweetness. Overall, a strong dark that moves away from the norm with underlying lactic character, but in a way that shows complexity, finesse, and restraint, rather than a simple desire for uniqueness for the sake of itself.

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Svartbrun kulör med brun skumkrona. Doft av pumpa, skumbanan och sött bröd. Söt och lätt vinös kropp. Smak av skumbanan, torkade frukter, peppar, koriander och lite rödvin.

colui72 (810) - HONG KONG - FEB 18, 2017
Dark brown, small beige head. Very sweet aroma of candi sugar and ripe dark fruits. Taste is too sweet as well, with the same ripe fruitness, and molasses. Heavy to finish.

MiP (15394) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle, 11%. Vinous aroma, actually also quite lagery. Alcohol, green apple notes, too. Clear very dark brown colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is quite fruity. Does not taste that strong to begin with, but it turns a little boozy after a short while. The warming kind of alcohol, though, so I like it. Late peppery note, quite clean finish.

SPDickerman (1233) - Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Pours hazy dark mahogany with a small beige head. Smells of subtle smoke and chocolate with a hint of fruit. Taste is sweet, hints of smoke and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Kasteel Cuvée du Chateau finishes with a subtle hint of booze and chocolate.

Tasted bottled @Olut. Dark brown. Aroma of pastry and dried fruits. In mouth it's surprisingly dry and not too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Club cata Olut. Botella año 2015. Aromas dulces típicos de las cervezas belgas. En boca seca y al final me da sabor a pasas dulces.
