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.

Beautiful Viking Art design on the bottle. Huge brown head. Cloudy caramel-brown colour. Strong, yet sweet peach aroma with caramel notes. Spicy and fruity taste with hints of roast and coffee. Long bitter-sweet finish. An impressive beer!

Bottle at home, yeah big beers. Pours a caramel brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, dark fruits, raisins, figs, yeast, mild spices and some booze. I had looked at this for a long time, but never rated it.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je výrazné, má třešňový nádech a silný alkoholový podklad. Pěna je zlato - bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je vínová a kalná. Chuť je velmi mohutná a robustní, má nádech třešní obalených štiplavým alkoholem, finiš je těžší, alkoholový a držící. V ústech pivo působí robustně, má silný říz a je i přes svojí mohutnost dobře pitelné. Jedná se o vskutku chutné silné pivo, vhodné především ke klidnému posezení a vychutnání.
