Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip. This is the 2010 cuvée.

Appearance: dark brown with ruby highlights when held up to the light. Body seems to be haze-free with a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of fizzy tan foam which subsides relatively quickly. Not too bad.

Smell: sweet malt with a very big raisin component, backed up by a nice pear and date bouquet. Not dramatically complex for the style, but I really like the composition. Mmmm.

Taste: very much like the aroma, with an emphasis on raisin, date and pear; there's also a pretty strong alcohol component here, which I suppose is not surprising. Quite a bit of sweetness features here, but that's acceptable for the style and works with the darker fruits.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a good creaminess. Satisfying enough for me, although for a big Belgian quad I expect a whole lot. Still, quite good indeed.

Overall: this beer is a bit on the hot side, at least in the aftertaste, but I like the dark fruit composition. Beers of this style don't have to work too hard to be pretty tasty to me; still, this guy is worth a shot if you like the style.

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.

A dark brown beer with a settling head, which disappears after a while. No head is visible.

The smell is malty with a sweet and port-like sensation. The beer has a tart smell that also has some cherry and berries in the smell. LIght dark malts which are not burned or roasted.

The taste is sweet with the port taste also present. The berries and tartness remind me of lacto or brett? The beer is sweet, but light in a way, it is drinkable, and not cloying at one point. The first sip I suspected artificial sweeteners but this beer is the best beer from this brewery.
