Bottle; Unfiltered.
Gavroche was a generous and rebellious Paris urchin and a character in the Victor Hugo (1802-1885) novel “Les Misérables.” It is also a strong, amber beer, where the flavour of its top-fermentation yeast combines perfectly with the taste of the special malts. Fermented again in the bottle, the Gavroche beer should be served with care between 10 and 12°C.

Pours dark with some cloudiness. Tastes good for style. Aroma of caramelized malt and sugar with some dark fruit. Good overall beer. Finishes sweet with caramel. Some basement barrel, but very much like a dark Belgian strong. Bottle from Steamworks.

DialSquare (2935) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Corked bottle from Market Square liquors. Deep orange pour with a huge fluffy off-white head that takes forever to dissipate. Aroma is sweet caramel, yeast, citrus and pepper. Tastes are along the same lines with a light background tartness. Also dark fruit and bready. Medium slick palate. Interesting.

pictoman (620) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Poured from 330mL bottle. Hazy orangish brown with full off-white head. Aroma of molasses, bready malt, dark fruits - figs, plum. Light taste, a little flat. Caramel and sweet roasted malts. A little lacking on the finish.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottled. Poured light-medium orange with a dense, creamy beige head.. looked very good. The aroma picked up toasted redder fruits, caramel, and molasses with earthy and herbal yeasty accents.. a touch cheesy as it warmed up.. I enjoyed it. The flavor found fruity notes, molasses, and caramel at the core with prickly black pepper and earthy yeast around.. finished semi-sweet with a nice spicy kicker. Medium-bodied, tangy, and engaging on the palate.. smooth carbonation on the middle where it needed it.. good feel and flow. Nice one.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Amber-brown color with fine white head, aroma of sweet roasted malt, the taste is with toffee, sweet malt and light liquorice/chocolate notes, full creamy body... One heavy beer for his body and sweetness

maxwelldeux (3807) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has some citrus and spicy elements to it, and seems a little bit fruity. Taste is slightly sour with a bit of a bite. Feels a bit harsh to me.

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle @ Taverna del Bucaniere. Profumi intensi di uva, lieviti e mou. Color rame, non perfettamente trasparente con lieviti in sospensione. Schiuma biancastra non omogenea. palato estremamente carbonato, ma di corpo medio/debole, e con finale breve secco. Gusto interessante di zucchero di canna caramellato, un bel sentore maltato e una punta di luppolo sul finale.

Grzesiek79 (3307) - Radom, POLAND - APR 11, 2013
Znakomite pieknie pachnace piwo farmerskie, czerwonego ciemnego koloru, piekna i stabilna puszysta piana, smak przypominal dobre belgijskie podwojne klasztorne. Zapach fig, troche melasy i kory drzewnej. Smak troche slodki finisz wytrawny, lekko rozgrzewalo i mimo mocnego stezenia alkoholu nie czulo sie go. Polecam.
