Gavroche was a generous and rebellious Paris urchin and a character in the Victor Hugo (1802-1885) novel “Les Misérables.” It is also a strong, amber beer, where the flavour of its top-fermentation yeast combines perfectly with the taste of the special malts. Fermented again in the bottle, the Gavroche beer should be served with care between 10 and 12°C.

O,33l fles gedeeld met jeroen op zomervakantie in 2014. Amber licht troebel met crème schuim. Geur rozenbottel en gist. Smaak is een tikkeltje alcoholisch met rum rozijnen. Medium body.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Amber coloured bright beer with white head. Toasty malts, small hint of yeast, bitterness in finish. Quite clean tasting and pleasant enough. I didn’t quite get the point of this beer - if I want a toasty quaffable ale I can get an Alt or Amber at c5%, and if I want something stronger I get more complexity with any Belgian style for 8.5%, this kind of sits in between.

(Bottle) Clear rich amber copper with excellent thick white head. Pleasant interesting aroma, mainly spicy and fruity with some complex notes. Medium body, well carbonated. Taste has a nice spicy bite, perhaps largely from the alcohol, from start to finish. This is overlaid on a nicely balanced mix of subtle toffee sweetness and tangy fruitiness. There’s some bitterness in the finish. Overall a very nice strong beer.

MarcoDL (5161) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Amber colored beer with a spicy body of malt. Has dryish notes of fresh herbs like anise. Yeasty as well.

M_Sack (750) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Deep but reasonably clear amber with a thick off white head that sticks to the glass. Complex aromas encompassing malt, caramel fudge, hints of orange peel, alcohol, macerated fruits and esters. Similar flavours of caramel, macerated fruit, esters and slight oak notes, although the alcohol dominates and detracts.

Lightly cloudy, dark orange color, hazzy, with a stable head, strong aroma, with caramel, bread and some herbal notes, medium to strong body, with slight bitternes at the end, overall its worth to try.
