COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2010 750mL bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cookie, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement, dough), with notes of peach/apple skin and wood. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. This sampling is reminding me of old Blaugies La Moneuse...it’s got that cellar/mold funk and a wild sourness undercurrent. Not that great, but not bad.

[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Hazy brown with a moderate head. Aroma of yeast, figs, caramel. full body with a fair bit of alcohol in the finish. Not the finest beer ever made, but I was pretty hammered by this point and it did the job.

Bottle. This is one of the oddest beers I’ve ever drank. While drinking this I started to really hate it and it became a major letdown. I decided it wasn’t going to be a drainpour and soon it really changed it’s flavor on me like that. I guess about 20 minutes of warming could really make that much a difference for a beer. Aging could do this wonders.

DYCSoccer17 (3355) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2006
11.2 ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s in Albany, NY. Shared with my brother, ChazyRPH. Roasty, grainy, lightly vinous aroma. There are some light chocolate notes present as well. This is an interesting, but pleasant aroma that I am having some difficulty putting a finger on. Mildly hazy orangey-amber colored body with a nice frothy, tan head. Sweet, sugary malts to start, which turns more roasted in the middle. Becomes chewy, caramelly with some late vinousness present in the end. Similar to a quad. Tasty and enjoyable. A baby quad. This becomes drier as it goes on and becomes a little less drinkable.

Pours a dark copper with a slight tan head. The aroma is slightly fruity with some caramel and roastedness along with a bit of funkiness. the flavor has a bit of chocolate, fruit, roasted malt, and an earthiness.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 23, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 33 cl bottle. Cloudy amber colour and quite fizzy. The head is big and beige. Malty and spicy aroma, with also yeast and some alcohol and roasted notes. The flavour is overall sweet, with some bitterness in the finish. medium body, average carbonation, medium finish. Surely lacks something to be called a classic, but is a very nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 D’une odeur forte et d’apparence brumeuse avec une belle robe et dentelle. d’un bonne saveur et sans arrière-goût. Dans son ensemble, elle est une bonne bière forte avec un bon goùt épicé.
