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.

Bottle from The Bottle Stop in Bramhall. Hmm I’m getting nail varnish in the nose...dammit woman. My house is too small and I can hardly go and ask her to sit in the garden. So that’s all I can smell unfortunately. Strong, sweet, sugary. Not bad but there are better triples, nice for a change though.

Draught @ BrickStore Pub Classic aroma of belgian ale. Pours brown/red and looks thick, the head is immense and creamy, in fact if you put your finger and scoop some out, it’s like whipped cream consistency. The taste is malty, biscuit, maybe some ’cream soda’ . Felt thinner than I expected... a fine belgian no doubt.

thomat (3413) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2008
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 (764) - 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 (3005) - 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.
