Bottle, labelled Keizer Karel Robijn Rood. Dark red-brown colour with a big creamy and lacing offwhite head. Caramel aroma with a somewhat herbal hoppiness. Caramel flavours meet yeasty spiciness. Quite well-balanced. A bit hard on the tongue. Well-made, but not very original. fonefan (51136) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle. Dark red color with small yellow head. Spices and mild chocolate in aroma with mild alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Crispily carbonated brew with chocolate and spices, mild alcohol and chocolate fit nicely in aftertaste.

Bottled (as Charles Quint Keizer Karel). Dark brown colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, malts and spices. Flavour is much more boring, though it contains the same things. Mouthdrying. Some alcohol also noteable, especially after the beer warms up a bit. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2006
Spicy aroma with some acidity.
Spicy flavour with notes of sweetness and fudge. Dry. gnoff (10986) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2006
