COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong Belgian brown ale.
After extensive tasting, trying to fulfil increasingly strict requirements, the brewmaster obtains a creamy, dark Belgian brown ale: Kasteelbier. The quality of the past is still unmatched and the beloved taste is very much of the present. Kasteelbier is a dark, artisanal beer, soft and mild, full and creamy. It can age for many, many years, as indicated on the bottle. 11% abv, serve at 12C (54F) (Translation by Martinus)

Brown colour with a baige head. Sweet raisin fruity aroma and a sweet berry taste. Medium to full body and a sweet light alcoholic finish.

wozap (862) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - APR 20, 2017
Butelka do 01.2017. Brunatno-brązowe, lepkie. Piana mizerna, szybko redukuje do trwałej obrączki. Aromat to suszone owoce, wyraźne rodzynki, sherry, likierowe owoce. W smaku słodycz, likierowe owoce, momentalnie rozgrzewający gardło przyjemny alkohol. Degustacyjne, deserowe, treściwe. Nasycenie średnie, do niskiego.

Very classically Belgian. Lots of body, low carbonation, esters, dried fruit, malty sweetness, low bitternes. Some alcohol. Very nice!

Aroma: Strong caramel and subtle alcohol notes Appearance: Dark brown color with hazy liquid and tan brown head. Taste: Heavy sweetness and light sour notes Palate: Full body with oily liquid and average carbonation. Long sweet astringent finish, alcohol touch. Overall: Beer to have with heavy meals. Recommended for winter and to drink slowly.

nephirem (437) - CROATIA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Deep amber pour, cloudy. One finger off-white head with very good retention. Lasting thin layer. Thick lacing. Nose is heavy malt, yeast, slight alcohol. Touch of roastiness. Medium body with quite aggressive carbonation. Thick and oily on the tongue. Taste is..... excessively sweet. Strikes as a sugar bomb! Aroma of heavy malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Syrupy. Molasses. A bit sticky. Poor job on hiding the high ABV despite all the sweetness. Boozy. Lots of aocohol. Nicely warming, perhaps not so nicely balanced but! - sill nice nonetheless. Interesting aftertaste, a touch of citrus to it. Somewhat woody. Dry finish. Overall, quite interesting. And if you can tolerate the sweetness - quite tasty. Pretty good drink to enjoy on cold winter evenings. Good one.

Bottle from Voldby. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma and taste is malt, caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, alcohol. Full body. Soft carbonation. Nice light bitter warming finish.
