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.

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.

Cloudy orange colour with a small beige head. Malty, toffee sweet aroma with a fruity and light yeasty note. Malty, caramel sweet flavor with notes of fruit. Light dry floral finish.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 24, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of all foam finely sized tan colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a hazy strongly carbonated brown colored body. The aroma was hoppy malty musty cinnamon and Irish Red malty. The vinous mouth feel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor contained notes of vinegar malt and hops. Not one that I would buy again. It was just off.

its quite good. The Alcohol actually hits you hard at first, caramel and slight cereal makes this good. the malts is nice and hops are little in presence. The rest of the beer is a pleasant expirence.

Bottle. [ Thanks to oh6gdx ] Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, molasses, bread, roasted. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (271007)

Is this thing corked? Because the bottle lip would make you think it was. Very fruity aroma and slightly chemical. Nice red/amber cloudy pour into a snifter at L’Albatros in Cleveland, with an inch tall off-white head. The flavor was incredibly similar to a Williamsburg Pale Ale. Not my thing.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Re-rate 7/9/14: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Vova. Candies, fruits, sweet, a bit of cardboard. 5/3/5/3/10=2.6

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Oren. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, caramel hints and some fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of fruitiness, alcohol and mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad and doesn’t feel like 8.5% but lacks some character. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

Average beer. Good- looking dark amber with fine carbonation and thick beige head, but not much depth of flavor. Too sweet to be sessionable. Better to share a 750mL than to drink solo.

Ihan kohtalainen olut. Mukavan voimakkaan oloinen maku tässä :) Kyllästyneen makuinen, mutta rennon mukavan oloinen maku ilman lisäaineita.
