Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperor’s Beer" which is top-fermented and bottle conditioned following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even improves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and rich bouquet.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours dark brown with light brown head. Aroma of dark fruit and plenty of yeast. Flavor matches aroma, but adds some roasted malt. Light alcohol presence on finish.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany-red body with a long lasting, large, frothy, eggshell-coloured head. The aroma is very rich and malty with notes of berries, plums, chocolate, and burnt caramel. There are some dusty chocolate and burnt malt flavours with a hefty dose of dark fruitiness. Alcohol muscles its way through at the right time. Complex and very well done.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
Dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is dominated by fruity and yeasty notes, lots of it. Flavor is sweet of dark fruits with some roasted notes and only a sleightly bitter aftertaste

I tried this belgian ale for the first time tonite. I thought it was excellent. To me, it smelled like flowers and it tasted like honey. I am sincerely grateful to my brother for sharing a bottle with me.

cheap (5363) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Has a mildly sugary aroma, some what like cola, belive it or not. Has the look of very light iced tea. Barely any carbonation. Odd old farm barrel initial taste but not like a lambic. Reminds me of the old country. Unique but alky is present without a doubt. A little rude and different to say the least. Difficult to swallow at times.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2007
Got a cold so my usual rubbish sense of smell is ecen worse. Shame as this is really nice. Delicous. Slight alcohol flavour present but very sweet and lovely. Like Fearne Cotton. Just like the beer though, an obvious dark side. 8 4 8 4 16

TrefwoordPunk (983) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a brownish amber with a medium and fading tan head and a thin aroma of sweetness and fruits. Flavor is nice caramel sweet and after that gets a little bit sour. Finish is hoppy and sweet, but not groundbreaking. Just fine, not spectacular
