Bottle Keizer Karel Charles Quint Aroma: caramel, malt, metal and a bit of rich fruit. Apperance: deep red brown with a tan head made from large bubbles that dissipates quickly. Flavour: caramel, some roasty notes with a hint of alcohol burn. Palate: thich and well carbonated.

AcctError85284 (119) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2009
Oct 13, 2006 On tap at Gollem. Red coloured. Nice foamy head. Tasty but quite bitter. It could be much better, really. Very strong kick afterwards - probably due to the 9 percent...

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle, pours deep red with a thin off white head. Aroma is thin with big red soda, licorice, and malt. The moderatly carbonated mouth starts with a salty sour mix of cherry and spice. Ends on a bitter note that is dry.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2008
Poured a dark reddish brown with a fizzy tan head. Subtle nose of chocolate and brown sugar. Tasted of burnt caramel but moved quickly to a more powerful grassy hop with spices. Medium on the palate and fizzy with long bitter finish. Different.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2009 The version I enjoyed is the Keizer Karel or Charles Quint, Robijn Rood or Rouge Rubis. It pours a little cherry pink head. It starts with berry bitters an brings a sticky mouth feel. That endures and ends with a ripe after-taste of liquorice. Nice and fruity beer for when you’re in doubt of what to drink. And a good substitute for red wine?

33cl Bottle, very easy to drink, surprisingly refreshing for a brown beer, not a bad beer but not a winning star

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 In the requisite three-handled clay mug, Chagal, Brugge. Can’t see the beer for the clay, but a 3 for the mug. Rocky beige foam. Clove peppering chocolate inviting malt and spice aroma. Hobnobby milk choc, cherrystone alcohol notes showing (thought it was 6-7 %!), coriander, liquorice, trace of roast, Leffe-like banana esters, chocolate afters. Peppery, malty and light a bit like a dunkelweizen. A 9% Dunkelweizen, apparently. Bit thin but tasty.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a reddy nut brown colour with a decent creamy beige head. Aroma had dark fruit, coriander, sweet malt and caramel. The flavour was sweetish with malt, raisin, and a light bitter hop finish. Not too bad.
