Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperors Beer" which is top-fermented and bottle conditioned following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even improves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and rich bouquet.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2010 this beer is weaker, cheaper beer than the gouden carolus blue i had previously fallen in love with. I just couldnt help comparing. I mean this beer is great and all, and for the price, its all the better...but i think ill stick with the blue.

On tap at the Cafe Gollem Raamsteeg in Amsterdam. Brown pour with huge beige head. Aroma is almost overwhelming with dark fruits. Taste is sweet and complex and, oh, so good. Full mouthfeel. Wonderful and delicious!

En botella. Prcticamente sin espuma. Al ojo, muy lquida, de color marrn con destellos rojizos. Muy fresca a la nariz, aunque los tonos dulzones que presenta se esfuman rpidamente. De sabor dulzn pero para nada empalagoso.

chromeotaphor (166) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2017
Prachtig duister robijnrode kleur en mooie crmeige schuimkraag. Zoete zachte caramelaroma met hinten van fruit. Zacht met een mooie uitgebreide volle smaak die zich heerlijk in de afdronk ontwikkeld. Ietsje waterig. Een mooie balans tussen iets meer zoet en bitter. Een warm mooi smaakpalet. Doet nauwelijks onder voor de blauwe Keijzer. Aanrader!!

Zilverenmaan (151) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2017
Some caramel, candi sugar, slightly roasted but mostly sweet and deliciously so ( for a change... ): creamy, suggestions of sourness or wine. Alcohol well hidden though still present, mouthfeel very creamy, like butterscotch, carbonation really soft. It is a very sweet beer but I really enjoyed it although one is probably enough.

Donker bier, zeer rijk aroma, een absolute aanrader voor ieder die voor de afwisseling een zoeter bier wil proberen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

carlom (36) - ITALY - MAY 4, 2017
Colore ambrato, schiuma compatta e persistente. A naso malto, pane e frutti rossi. Allassaggio ciliegia, vaniglia e marcate note vinose. Finale leggermente alcolico, corpo sostanzioso, birra accattivante molto equilibrata e facile da bere nonostante la gradazione.

gripweed57 (2143) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy deep copper brown color. Large rocky beige head. Complex, fruity toasted malt nose with an underlying vinous nature. Tangy, rich malty foretaste is fruity and complex. Finishes dry and mildly tangy. Lightly carbonated. Intense without being obtrusive. Strong but not cloying. Very good.
