COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PapaVillum (425) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
75 cl/750 ml, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, 50 års gave fra Hanna - tak! 19. juni 2014. Mahogni-farvet og ufiltreret belgisk Ale med cognac-farvede nuancer og 2-3 cm flot tætskummende moccafarvet skumtop, som svinder til 3 mm. Dejlig frugtrig duft af engelsk plumcake. Tørrede frugter såsom svesker, abrikos, rosiner. Meget lækker smag uden alkoholtyngde. Og det er tiltalende. Sødlig og let flirtende med len anelse syrlighed og bitterheden som en let sommerfrakke. God balance, som aldrig gør øllet for sødt. Kuldioxid-indholdet er på medium niveau. Eftersmagen er af medium længde. En helt anden betydning af ordet "Classic", end dét, vi kender fra Tuborg, og Het Ankers Classic er da også i en helt anden ølklasse, hvilket også var en overraskelse for undertegnede, da jeg smagte dette bryg første gang. Høj klasse fra bryggeriet i området 6-9 % ABV.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash! Pours hazy dark amber. Aromas of dark stone fruit, toffee, yeast. Light boozy note. Taste is all of this and more sweetness. Sticky, oily finish, but good.
