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.

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.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark/rich orange. Decent head with nice long lasting lacing. Dry yeast on the nose. Bread. Dirt and earth. Lively carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. Very yeasty. Earth. Just a hint of fruit turning slightly metallic. Zero fro two from this brewery for me. Just not a huge fan of the house style.

The aroma is very grainy with hops, spice, and fruity yeast. The appearance is amber with a HUGE head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s a nice beer but not one that you should go out of your way to get.

Bottle. Bought some vintage bottle, not knowing its actually pretty common in NJ. Amber body with an off white head. Malty and dusty and oxidized metallic flavor. Some etoh warming.

tlind2 (1094) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2008
330 ml bottle. Coppery color, huge "duvelesque" off-white head. Medicinal alcohol aroma. Somewhat spicy aroma with alcohol and a touch of caramel, long bready malt finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Not my style.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting light amber head. Aromas of carmel and light fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light carmel and light fruittiness with a crisp lightly fruity finish. Nothing special here, definitly not worth the $10!

tomer (1622) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 2, 2010
At a tasting, thanks Oren, big stable thick head, hazy rusty orange to light red colour, flowery perfumy aroma with some white fruits, malt and hay. malty bready flavour with a touch to strong bitterness and just a touch of sweetnees to counteract but not enough, a little unbalanced.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2011
Deep copper in colour with a creamy, pillowy off white head, showing decent carbonation without over doing it. A light floral fruity note precedes a medium bodied and well balanced beer that finishes slightly bitter, abrupt and with a hint of sourness, at 8.5% it has the alcoholic kick without the overpowering alcoholic flavour.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Flöska. Nice clear golden amber brown colour, huge beige head, fairly well lasting. Aroma of toasted caramel and malt, bit fruit, bit sweetness, light spice. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Toasted caramel and malt in the flavour, alco sweet, quite some alcohol noticed in the finish along with a bit fruit. Mild bitterness. Too much alcohol in aroma and flavour
