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.

Pours a deep dark burgundy-purple with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, yeast and grass. Taste full of alcohol and malt. Some sourness at beginning letting place to hops warmness and earthy finish. Intense, rough and fuzzy.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle in LA. INtensely malty, some caramel, but not sweet. finishes medium dry, very clean, I was expecting something more like a saison but the yeast has a very clean finish. Big malty beer - pretty good.

jmgreenuk (6495) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from somewhere in France. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is yeast, sweet malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich smooth fruity, light alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Schöne 0,33l Flasche. Kastanienfarbenes Bier mit flachem Schaum. Röstmalz und Toffee in der Nase. Etwas alkoholisch und unrund im Geschmack.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange color with a large fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet with notes of toffee, nut, cherry and cola. The flavor was crisp and spritzy fruitiness followed by light notes of toffee, tobacco and yeast. Medium length finish. Medium body. Interesting.

MBlessing (476) - Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2015
Helles Braun starker Schaum, Geruch malzig leicht nach trockenfrüchten, Geschmack malzig leicht nach dunklem Karamell, recht schöne bitternote im Abgang, recht alkoholisch im Geschmack aber bei 8,5% auch nicht so verwunderlich
