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.

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.

Osprey87 (1589) - WALES - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle BB 2016. Murky red brown, big foamy brown head. Aroma - very sweet malty, yeast, lilly pollen, alcohol. Body is medium, low carbonation, pretty foamy. Taste is sweet, some alcohol, soft caramel, milk, malty. This is actually pretty nice - balanced - even though I can’t think of much to describe the flavour.
