This beer was a complete shock, and I mean that in the best way. I've found a great bar in where tap beers are available in 6-rack samples at 7 ounces each. I somewhat randomly selected this beer because I happen to like high-alcohol, Belgian beers.

The appearance was dark with a nice, thick head. Of course, 7-oz sample glasses don't do the appearance of any beer particular justice. But for a Belgian, this one looked exceptional.

The smell was a blissful mix of fruits blended with the odor of wet oak, like the woods after a night of rain (sans mosquitos). In a word...inviting.

Taste. Wow. I can't believe I wasted my time ordering the other five beers in this rack. I should have order six of the Cuvee. The inviting scent has in no way be let down by the actual taste. Is that carmel? Am I drinking brandy? What kind of fruits are in here? No adjectives can do this taste justice.

Mouthfeel...savor it. The taste does not fade. The flavors swirl around, fighting for total control, but thankfully, no single flavor wins. Great aftertaste.

Drinkabity? If this is really 11% then I will have to execute extreme moderation because all I want is another.

In Field of Dreams, Shoeless Joe asked "Is this heaven?"

No, brother, it's Kasteel Cuvee.

Had on tap at Ebenezer's Pub. Served in a chalice.

A-black body

S-very vinous smell, some sweet grain smell.

T-sugar, black pepper, grapes, plums and spice

M-medium

D-world class beer. Just one of the best beers I have ever had. I would drink this beer again.

OMG. Open the bottle and the aroma hits you in the face. Don’t pour inclined into the glass. Pour it like a wine. Nice head becomes a thin film but it doesn’t fade. Dark brown, almost black, see through. Aroma of a giant chunky banana, raisins, some chocolate, liquid bread, a tiny bit floral. Medium body, low carbonation, fruity on top, explosion of flavors in the middle, alcoholic at the end.

Had on tap at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia. Poured deep reddish black into a tulip with a thick creamy head. Absolutely beautiful, color of a dark red wine. Smell was equally impressive, fruity and malty, bitter cherry and caramel notes. Taste starts sweet and fruity, malty with some vanilla too, finish is tart cherry and Belgian hops. Mild carbonation. Fantastic beer, 10 years of aging has done this one well.

Tried this beer at Ebenezer's Pub, it was a blend of the 10, 3 & 1 year old Kasteel.
This dark brown rich brew with a heavy light brown head.Nice Lacing.

The taste is amazing, similar to a port, can detect the Belgian yeast. This is an especially sweet and malty beer. It ends dry, and you can't barely detect the alcohol.

Heavenly beer.

Bottled 7/14/2010. Poured into my St. Feuillien goblet, Cuvée Du Chateau is dark brown with a small tan head leaving light, foamy lace.

Smell is big esters, loads of grape, strawberry, bubblegum. Clean, spicy alcohol.

Taste is absolutely amazing. Wow. What a killer quad. Such a clan, pure fruitness, nice little spiciness and clean phenols to cut it, super smooth.

Mouthfeel is slippery and light, the epitome of digestible.

Drinkability is dangerously high. This is a fantastic beer. Absolutely world class; it may have equals, but is unsurpassable.
