Kasteel Donker (ABV 11%) from the Van Honsebrouck Brewery is a dark brown Quadrupel with a lingering tan head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, raisins, and figs appear in the nose, while roasted malts create a complex flavor profile that is bold, smooth, and sweet. The depth of flavor and the long finish make Kasteel Donker a beer to be savored. 16.9 oz can.

"A pleasantly sweet dark beer with roasted malt and hints of caramel."

-- Xavier Van Honsebrouck, CEO and seventh-generation Van Honsebrouck brewer

The Van Honsebrouck Brewery (makers of Kasteel beers) began as a small farm and brewery on the outskirts of Ingelmunster in the West Flanders region of Belgium.

Purchased in 1900 by husband and wife Emile and Ludovica Van Honsebrouck and expanded in the 1930s by their two sons, major success would elude the brew farm until the 1950s when grandson Luc Van Honsebrouck took over the business.

Educated at the brewing schools of Ghent and then gaining practical experience at a large German brewery, Luc would change the direction of the family business by breaking with tradition and concentrating on the production of high quality specialty beers. His vision proved fortunate, and made him a legend in the craft brew industry.

Today the Van Honsebrouck Brewery – still family owned and operated – distributes its specialty ales to at least two dozen countries including the United States, Canada, China, Italy, Brazil and Japan.

My review title says it all. This is tied for first for my all-time favorite beer (the other is Samichlaus Classic). A very modest head, syrupy mouth feel, and a sweet finish that makes the 11% ABV go down easy. IPA lovers probably won't like it, but that's okay - more for me!
