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.

PowY (177) - - AUG 20, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt along with some solvent and very little yeast. Full body with low carbonation and heavy (maybe a little too much) sweetness and rather alcoholic. Taste of roasted malt, molasses and sugar melon. Very characteristic beer.

puren (699) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - AUG 16, 2016
ciemnobrązowe / rubinowe, średnio obfita piana zostaje do końca, pięknie zdobi szkło;
słodki, karmel, cukier trzcinowy, słodka kawa, lody śmietankowe, śliwka w alkoholu;
ciało średnie, niesamowicie kremowe, puszyste, ze słodkim finiszem, lekkim ściąganiem na języku i alkoholem piekącym w usta;
słodki, za aromatem, dodatkowo rum i drewno, lekka krótka karmelowa goryczka;
wspaniale bogate i efektowne w ustach, ehhhh, Belgia...

mice (804) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Ruskea, hieman punertava ja sameahko olut pienehköllä, mutta pitkään kestävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu houkuttelevan makean belgihiivainen, hieman aniksinen, kypsän hedelmäinen ja karamellinen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmeän karamellinen ja makean maltainen, kypsän hedelmäinen ja loppupuoleltaan hieman suolaisen ja pippurisen humaloitu sekä aniksinen. Keskitäyteläinen/täyteläinen suutuntuma, makean tahmainen. Aika helposti juotava makea tumma belgi, mutta ihan mielenkiintoinen ja laadukas kokonaisuus.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with beige head. Aroma is malty and sweet with dried and overripe fruits and slightly fruity. Also slightly roasted. Taste is complex, malty and sweet with caramel, dried fruits with figs and dates, and hints of roasted malts. Finish is surprisingly dry despite the sweetness.

sjorsvdg (426) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2016
Robijnrood bier, met een fruitige neus. In het smaakpalet kom je rozenbottel, aardbei, en specerijen tegen. Ook is de hop aanwezig. Mooi bier.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2016
33cl BBE 19/05/2019 a fresh one. Aroma of faro sugars and barley wine. Thick malty nose. Pours nearly black with slightly beige head and beautiful lacing. Medium sweet and malty. Not ashy, not burnt but pleasantly roasted. Thick and heavy bodied beer. Creamy, smooth but with a tad bit sugary and slick finish. Perfect medium carbonation for a BSA. A very solid beer that can handle massive aging.
