Every year on the 24th of February, the birthday of "Charles the fifth", the Brewery brews the Gouden Carolus "Cuvee of the Emperor" in a limited quantity and with an eye on the highest quality and tradition.

This unique brewing, with only extra fine Belgian hops and with a higher alcohol level, guarantees a better evolution in the time, than the already known Gouden Carolus Classic.

The 75cl bottles are closed with a quality cork. Excellent to store several years. This exceptional ale ages well, developing a refined complexity and intense aromas. With powerful notes of roasted malts, caramel and plums, its surprisingly soft and fruity aroma combines a warm roundness with a refreshing taste. An imperial brew to cherish and enjoy in moderation.

Was 8% abv in 2000-2002, 10% in 2003 and 11% in 2004.

DISCLAIMER: This is a dark beer and the label has a blue diagonal line.

DraftDodger (3919) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2020 Copenhagen 2/9 2018. 75 cl bottle form Ølhandleren in Give. This is the 2018 edition. Drawing of a King on on his Horse with a blue band across. Pours clear dark brown with a red hue and a medium-sized off-white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam covering the surface of the beer. Substantial lacing. Aroma is strong, sweet and spicy. Sweet dark fruits. Plum and prunes. Sugar. Bitter sour spicy notes. Sherry and alcohol. Light carbonation. Thick, oily, creamy and soft texture. Flavor is strong and boozy. Heavy sweetness followed by moderate bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet with a solid alcoholic burn. Lingers for a while. A strong vinous sweet sipper. And there is a deliciously long way to the bottom when you drink a 75 cl bottle.

MingLeSage (149) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2020 Acheté à la SAQ du centre ville de St-Hyacinthe. Il s’agit d’une bière rouge très foncé produisant une abondante mousse beige. Au nez, on perçois des arômes fruité et sucré. En bouche, on peu retrouver des fruits rouges, de la cerise et des note de gâteau et d’abondante saveurs de caramel et de mélasse. Il s’agit d’une bière extraordinaire qui se classe parmis les meilleurs. La brasserie Het Anker fabrique des produits assez incroyable et cette bière ne fait pas exception à la règle.
