4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle poured into a shaker pint. Three fingers of tan head settle to a nice cap and patches of lace leave evidence of the once great height. The beer is dark drown and mostly clear with sediment coming with later (or less gentle) pours. Aroma contains raisins, fig, caramel, cherries, and alcohol. Taste is sweet with molasses, candi sugar, dark fruits, and raisins. There is some spicy and mildly hoppy bitterness as well. Certainly a boozy burn on the swallow, but it doesnít detract. Medium-full body, lots of creamy carbonation, creamy texture, semi-dry finish that allows the residual sugars to leave their mark.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
1.5l bottle. Reddish dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, cloves, booze and dark fruits. There are a lot of things going on in the taste. Figs, reisins, ripe banana, cloves, caramel, chocolate and some fruity hops in the end. Truly awesome beer.

I first tried it in Kulminator, Antwerp! Then in Beer Festival, Brussels and then in Delirium, Brussels.
Amazing taste and Aroma. Itís a special version of the íGouden Carolus Classicí with a stronger Aroma.
Itís brewed only on the 24th of February every year

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75L bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Malty aromas: caramel, chocolate, butterscotch. Flavor is quite sweet, with lots of butterscotch and some spice: anice and clove. Finishes with a chalky texture, and some herbu hop flavor along with alcohol. Full body with a thick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a bit disappointing. Tasty enough, with lots of malt, but not much complexity.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz 2013 bottle.
Smell is huge. Dates. Plums. Sugary. Wine. Dry. Boozy. Rum. Roots
Looks fine. Dark brown. Tan head.
Wow powwow that is intense! Flavors like the smell. Super complex. Smooth. Sweet dried fruits fade to more yeasty earthy notes with no harshness.
Palate is smooth. Carbonation compliments and holds a good mouthfeel that fades to dry with amazing flavors lingering.
Well guys..... 277 beers in (plus 200 more from another certain site I was banned from) and itís finally happened. The perfect beer. I always imagined it would be from founders but this is it. Amazing flavors, perfect on the palate and pleasing to the nose. An absolute must.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Dark brown with a large creamy tan head. Great aroma with Dark fruits, cherries, dates, raisins, and brown sugar. Creamy full body. Not overly flavorful, somewhat disappointing compared to the rest of the beer. Taste is mostly dark fruits, dates, and a very light alcohol finish. Extremely light alcohol taste for the percent.
