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.

I should have heeded the advise of the person a couple of posts before me. Explosive! Definitely open this one over the sink. So far, it has a beautiful pumpkin orange color, with lively carbonation in the glass. The nose reminds me of yeasty bread and the flavor is offset by the carbonation. The carbonation does lead to a sharp flavor, the body’s reaction to CO2. I will let this one sit for a few and all will be well with the world. Well Done!

Удивительно неприятный аромат. Запах очень спертый и сырой. Удивительно но вкус диаметрально противоположный по удовольствию. Он достаточно резок на хмелевую горечь. Пиво весьма сладкое- карамельное. Собственно больше никаких оттенков я не заметил. В послевкусие есть весьма чувственная горчинка.

Bottle. Tan head on a deep amber-brown body. Some honey, light roasted malts, flowers, bread, caramel, dried plums. Light sweetness, turns bitter, a bit tart. Medium body, creamy, soft but pearly carbonation. Very high drinkability with a well hidden ABV. Nice.

Porcellini (65) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2017
Muy poco aroma, color dorado. Tiene cuerpo, y notas de sabor a metal y con el alcohol algo presente. Final un poco amargo. Muy similar a las Belgian Strong Ale.

Poured from a 330ml bottle. Head disappears immediately, leaving a slightly fizzy, amber liquid in the glass, looking a bit like black tea. Very minimal aroma, mainly Im just getting a bit of Belgian yeastiness. Tastes straight away like a Belgian strong ale, with all that musty. oaky yeast flavours going on, but as she goes on you start to notice another level to this beer, where there is a bit of an acidic bite and some bitterness. The alcohol is there, but not too prominent. Its a bit lighter and easier to drink than a Dubbel or a Tripel. Quite interesting, worth trying.

tightslice (1435) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Mountain View, CA. Aroma is caramel, oak, fruity malts, sweet floral. Taste is soft carbonation, sweet, oaky, herbal, some herbal liqueur qualities. Great flavors and mouthfeel, reminded me of some solid Belgians in that way, but a bit too sweet.

Evilman (269) - Taverny, FRANCE - APR 30, 2017
Tasty, a positive surprise! I wasn’t expecting much from this one, it turned out to be a pretty satisfying drink. Rather strong but smooth in the same time, nice aroma with hints of oak, butter, and various hops. A bit short on the aftertaste, but beside that, it’s really cool. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!
