COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulden Draak is a high fermentation beer with secondary fermentation. For the secondary fermentation, wine yeast is used. The white bottle, the black banner, the golden dragon and the red letters, constitute a stylish result that has no equal among the many Belgian special beers. Gulden Draak can be drunk as an aperitif or dessert, or whenever you have the time to sit back and relax. But this barley wine is also perfect with and in stews, especially the Ghent variety. It is also a plus in sauces for red meat, such as a bordelaise. It is particularly suited as a dessert beer, especially in combination with dark chocolate.

Hazy redish brown with a thick off-white head. Fruity and spicy tones. Malt, sweet fruits and high carbonation and some alchohol sweetness. Full body with a sweet finish.

Draft. Reddish brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma was filled with malt and dark fruits. Taste was much of the same with a nice smooth aftertaste. Overall this was a very enjoyable beer that I will be having again and recommending to friends.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Dark red with a high head. Sweet and syrup-like aroma with dark berries. The flavours are very sweet also with alcohol dominating along with raisins, port and some dark chocolate. Way too thick and alcohol influenced by my liking.

Bosskie (726) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2008
Dark rewd brown beer with a creamy somewhat brownish head. Opaque. Fruity, creamy almost milk chocolate-like aroma. Bit too alcoholic. Sweety, salty sour aroma. Dry palate with a bitter-sweet base and hints of coffee, pure chocolate and cherries. Rather bitter aftertaste and a bit too alcoholic. This beer warms your guts up as if it were some kind of liquor.

Defreni (2996) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
Flaske. Mørk filtreret øl. Nok snarere sort men ikke uigennemtrængelig. Duften er diskret og ikke nogen antydning af alkohol, som tilgengæld slår igennem i smagen der nærmer sig sake. Mundfylden er tør og minder helt utroligt om champagne hvilket er godt i betragtning af at alkoholen ellers ikke er maskeret. Spændende øl der dog mangler lidt.

cgort (56) - San Clemente, California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
poured dark brown with a large off-white head. sweet aroma of apples, candy/ bubblegum (similar to a wheat beer). taste sweet with candy flavor and oranges (not hoppy but sweet) with a strong alcohol aftertaste. The beer had good carbonation with a warming from the alcohol. Overall I enjoyed this beer. Drink it with a seasoned steak and 2 yr. aged cheddar cheese.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
On tap at Sharp Edge. Pours a really dark amber brown color. A small light beige head. Just a touch of dark malts and fruit in the nose, but has the light alcohol, yeast, and apple of a tripel. Flavor is a little brown sugar thrown in with caramel, toffee, and alcohol. A nice creamy body with a blend of hoppy and alcohol bitterness left on the tongue.
