Kasteel Donker Belgian Ale
Dark, almost a deep red or mahogany tone with very thin off white head that quickly disappears.
Smell is nice for a Belgian quad. Is exactly what I'd expect from a top end ale or beer. Nice bouquet of caramel malts, dark fruits, brown sugar, belgian yeast, and maybe some candied sugar. Tastes very sweet and you can tell it has a higher ABV.
Just the right amount of carbonation, not over or under done. If the sweetness was dialed back a little this would be a better beer. But still very good. I would definitely like this as an after dinner or dessert beer.
