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.

benpickens (385) - Camarillo, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a nice amber with a huge frothy white head that leaves ample lacing; marmalade and spice on the nose; firm malt backbone with a stone fruit finish. Nice.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Pours all head before condensing into a nice amber color with frothy head. A little caramel sweetness, bready, warm full mouthfeel. The alcohol is well masked. Surprisingly not bad.

pictoman (366) - 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.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler. Biere de couleur cuivré brumeuse avec un moyen collet moyennement collant. Odeur de citron, resemblance avec du thé glacé, blé et les amandes. Gout de blé qui revient, miel, un peu le celerie et qui se termine sec.

beer-yum (357) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2014
An interesting beer that combines the taste of a strong Belgian ale with a lighter than expected body.

GL2814 (356) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2012
The malts in this beer give it an aroma and flavor of dark red fruits. Sweet and flavorful.

Gramoit (346) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Pours a dark amber colour with a thickish head. Smells of dark fruits and caramel. Palate is Very soothing and sticky with a very caramelly taste and hides the alcohol very well. Overall a very good beer and one perfect for a winters day.

Malty, earthy, yeast aroma. Pours a red-orange gold with a long lingering off white head. Smooth malty sweetness with nice effervescent mouthfeel. Slight pleasant bitterness on the finish.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - DEC 22, 2008
Pours deep amber colour with a large foamy head. Notable flowery and cellary smell. Aroma is a nice mixture of sweetish malts, flowery hops, notes of caramel, spices and yeast. Mouthfeel turns velvety smooth and a bit sour after first kick of carbonation. Medium-bodied. Alcohol doesn’t taste, but leaves nice warming feeling.

rwgould (329) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
33cl bottle from Liberty, served in a chalice. Pours a cloudy orange-red with a tiny beige head. Aroma: Yeast, malt, grapes, leaves, hints of lemon. Palate: Thick bodied, fizzy, foamy, long finish. Taste: sweet start, quickly turns bitter. Small hint of a spicy burnt feeling in the finish. It’s okay.
