Drank from my St Bernardus Chalice.

A - Pours a darl Mahogany colour with a nice off White two fingered head that retains well and laces.

S - Sweet spicey aromas and some quite heavy stewed cherries on the nose. Raisin and dark fruits plentiful.

T - Sweet up front with some nice spiciness that follows. The dark fruits are plentiful, with raisns and stewed cherries the most prominant. The boozyness is quite warming on the finish.

M - Medium to full body with medium carbonation.

O - Kasteel just doesn't make any bad beers and this is pick of the bunch.

Kasteel Cuv'ee Du Chateau

2010 edition. Corked and caged bottle, opens with a resounding pop. Poured into oversized wine glasses, a rich deep amber/mahogony hue with an off white dense head that recedes away over time. Aroma is fruity, bready, a touch of alcohol, dark fruits and brown sugar. In the taste, ripe grape, raisen, and plum but mostly grape. Alcohol is well in check and stays in the background. Pleasing dark fruits, some malt body lending caramel and brown sugar notes. Damn tasty. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and effervescent, semi-dry on the finish. Overall, a really nice beer, great flavors, clean and has the potential to age quite well.

Body is a very dark brown, though still slightly translucent. Poured this into a Tripel Karmeliet chalice to produce about a half inch head. Nice tan, frothy head tops this, with good retention and ample lacing.

A lively and invigorating aroma, smells of dark malt, raisins and dark fruit, candi/brown sugar, and spices--I'm getting some anise, coriander, and ginger. Also some nutty, cashew notes.

Tastes of sweet dark fruit--raisins, prunes, caramelized apples, brown sugar, and the aforementioned spices. The licorice/anise element seems strongest, but that is well-balanced by the sweetness. There is also some espresso coffee, chocolate, and roasted nuts in the background. The alcohol is evident enough to suggest a liqueur (like Kahlua), but it is held in reign by the complex flavors and is not overdone. The finish is peppery, and light, with just a hint of ash.

For all the flavor this packs, the body is rather light, and the carbonation is round, enough to give this a creamy mouthfeel.

Overall, this is an interesting, complexly flavored Belgian quad that is light in body and pleasant to drink. At 11% ABV, this is a beer that requires sipping and/or some food pairing.
