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.

Bottle. Big white head. Strong aroma. Scipy but still sweet aroma, a good signs of whats to come. Taste is similar, spicy with hints of citrus and yeast. Nice smooth finish. Alcohol is barely noticeable. A good one.

benpickens (403) - 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.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 13, 2004
Dark reddish color, slightly cloudy; big, off-white head. Alcohol, caramel, and a fruity touch in the aroma. I found it rather monodimensional... syrupy maltiness, and just a slight tarty note in the finish. Full bodied. Alcohol is a bit too evident.

11.2 oz bottle, Pours clear copper w/ a huge foamy head, aroma is caramel and rum w/ some sour notes, flavor is smooth and malty w/ only a slightly sour finish, strong, not altogether pleasant, metallic flavor on back end, promising but metallic flavor taints the experience

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cloudy brownish red color with a quickly subsiding off-white head. Aroma of raw almonds and brown sugar. Dark candy sugar flavors and malty sweetness coat the palate. Just enough bittering hops to keep it interesting.

Amber Coloured. Yeast smell/bananas. Taste in malt and bread-like. Aftertaste has something of chocolate or Nutella.

edsspoon (368) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Hazy amber with a big frothy brown head. Good head retention and some thin lacing. Aroma of malt, alcohol, caramel and some hints of apple. Taste of chocolate, caramel, fruit, sourness and some dark fruits. Fairly dry, very warming. Light carbonation. A wonderful beer.

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.
