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.

A delicious, well-balance brown ale. Though it isn’t anything spectacular or amazing.

Fin (7617) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Bottle picked up from Carrefour, Lille, 30-07-07. Poured murky warm gold colour, with large erupting white head of foam. Having had two other Biere de garde’s in recent day’s I’m getting to notice the style now and this seemed quite typical of the style although the alcohol did become a little invasive at times. Some toffeeiness in the mouth, bit malty and sweet but fine.

330 ml bottle. Finland. Absolutely huge foamy head. Malty aroma. Caramel and warming alcohol flavour. Colder than advised.

Skinnyviking (7179) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Medium high creamy and lasting off-white head. Slightly hazy amber body. Apple pear peach barley malt caramel honey alcohol aroma. Powerful fruity creamy peach dominated flavor with a dry and dusty note. Very well balanced so that you do not taste the relatively high alcohol percentage as it is well hidden by the fruith flavors and the sweetness of the beer. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Interesting.

Ughsmash (7175) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Pours a transparent amber copper with a large, spotty-lacing frothy light tan head. Aroma of toasty biscuity malt and some sweet grain along with a touch of green noble hops. Body starts with a sweet earthy caramel maltiness and good authentic bitter balance. Finishes slightly warming and bittersweet. True to style and enjoyable, but could hide it’s alcohol a little better.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2005
A Mes rate: Great brown amber appearance with reasonable head retention and lots of lace as you tip and sip. Caramel, yeast and a good lick of alcohol but nothing too offensive. Nice bitter sweet finish. Yeah nice stuff.

DuffMan (6980) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle purchased from the TRC Hotel in Launceston Tasmania. Hazy iced-tea amber colour with a very thick white head that displays excellent retention. Aroma is all butter toffee and bready yeast (smells yummy!). Caramel malt and chewy breadiness dominate the palate, along with mild spiciness. Really nice.

mcberko (6882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy amber with a huge beige head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, caramel malt and yeast. Flavour follows suit, with a lingering sourness, dryness and yeasty taste. Nice beer.
