An unequalled beer, at the top of the Kasteel spectrum.The aroma and flavour of Cuvée are those of a Kasteel Donker, that aged 10 years in the cellars of the castle, noble and strong.

Brown, small white head. Aroma is sweetish, more I do not smell because of a cold. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter, a bit alcoholic. Furthermore slightly sweet. nice beer.

Donkerbruin kasteelbier. kandijsuiker, eerder zoet, maar toch een bittere afdronk. komt aan als afsluiter van een proefavond :-)

Idiosynkrasie (7628) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Murky, dark brown colour with small to average, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sugary sweet-ish, dark malty, slightly fruity and alcoholic aroma, notes of toffee, caramel, mandarine, orange, Cointreau, an artificial touch of cherry. Taste is sweet dark malty, fruity hoppy, notes of apple, baked apple, banana, orange, mandarine, dark chocolate, hints of toffee; sweet-ish, lasting, minimally sticky and slightly warming, alcoholic finish. Rather easy drinkable despite the alcoholic finish.

Clear dark brown color with red hues, tan head. Aroma has mostly brown sugar and toasted malts with some booze soaked fruits on top. Taste focuses mostly on the brown sugar and yeast character. Finish is a bit astringent and bitter. Medium body and carbonation. It’s an intense beer but this also comes with some alcohol burn.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Výborné řízné černé pivo se sladší chutí, doprovázenou tóny kávy a kakaa. Jemná krémová pěna.

Dark amber color with small fast fading brown head. Dried fruits, brown sugar and malt. Sweet taste. Powerful, warming and sharp aftertaste. Can’t mask this 11% alc content.

Myonlyvice (320) - DENMARK - JUL 26, 2017
Very dark with a medium head. Aroma: Dark chocolate, coffee, malt, brown suger. The taste is dominered by the roastyness without being burned or bitter. Very nice balance. Alcohol present but In a pleasent way. Only wish it would have been a bit more powerful In taste and texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster at HopCat in Broad Ripple. Looks solid; a fairly transparent copperish brown with very light caramel head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and mildly tart with notes of dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and pleasant. An enjoyable sipper.

Vells (1857) - Rīga, LATVIA - JUL 10, 2017
Regardless description, I dont find it too complex.. or royal. Anyways, decent Belgian strong with pleasant maltiness, quite high carbo, some dried fruits, light chocolate, bit wood. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness, hint of sourness. Decent.
