COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Unfiltered.
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.

Schöne 0,33l Flasche. Kastanienfarbenes Bier mit flachem Schaum. Röstmalz und Toffee in der Nase. Etwas alkoholisch und unrund im Geschmack.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange color with a large fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet with notes of toffee, nut, cherry and cola. The flavor was crisp and spritzy fruitiness followed by light notes of toffee, tobacco and yeast. Medium length finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Helles Braun starker Schaum, Geruch malzig leicht nach trockenfrüchten, Geschmack malzig leicht nach dunklem Karamell, recht schöne bitternote im Abgang, recht alkoholisch im Geschmack aber bei 8,5% auch nicht so verwunderlich

11.2 oz Bottle -- Pours deep brown-amber with a medium light tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, fig, raisin, hay, grass, and soy sauce. Heavy on the palate and slightly salty and sour. The alcohol is quite noticeable.

ljthiessen (1257) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle. Beautiful clear amber pour with a thick head. Aroma is sweet and bready, some fruit and caramel, quite nice. Flavour is also sweet, fruit and bread, a bit cloying without much bitterness to balance, but some nice flavours.

Cantabrian (1101) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2015
I had this bottle for some 3 years before finally opening it. Brownish amber - I rarely use the word "amber", but here I think that it does apply. Lovely aromas of sweet caramel and booze. Nice, malty on the tongue, sweet and rather spicy, more of the bakery stuff, such as allspice, with dried apricots and stone fruits.Full bodied, great concoction!
