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.

Says French Red ale on the label under the name. Same label otherwise. Not too red for a red ale. Pours gold, with a massive head that fills 90% of the glass. The aroma is heavy with fruity esters and malt. Heavy body, with a flat mouth feel. A bit sour in the finish.

Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a huge beige head that lasts ages and also lots of chunks. The aroma is light but has notes of malt, caramel, honey and citrus. The flavour has a slight tartness to it and has yeast, citrus, malt, caramel and a little woodiness. Medium body, with high carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Very nice.

Hazy amber with a big frothy brown head. Good head retention and some thin lacing. Aroma of malt, alcohol, caramel and some hints of apple. Taste of chocolate, caramel, fruit, sourness and some dark fruits. Fairly dry, very warming. Light carbonation. A wonderful beer.

Barwa miedziana z czerwonawymi refleksami, klarowna, Od góry na piwie tworzy si? bia?a, sztywna piana. Jest trwa?a i pozostawia ogromne w?sy po ka?dym ?yku. Aromat s?odowy, nieco wytrawny, jest chleb ?ytni lekko kwaskowy i zakurzona betonowa posadzka, jednak s?odowo?? jest tutaj dominuj?ca. W smaku s?odowo?? jest przygaszona nutami wytrawnymi, jest wi?cej estrów owocowych, s? przyprawy, np. pieprz. Charakter Gavroche’a w porównanie z zapachem, zmieni? si? w delikatniejszy, nieco kwa?ny. Goryczka to tylko 20 IBU, jednak jest wyra?niejsza ni? mog?oby si? wydawa? sucha, pestkowa. Wysokie wysycenie nadaje piwu rze?ko?ci. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours clear dark amber with moderate lacing. Aroma is malty and spicy. Flavor is deep rich malts and a moderate amount of spice. Notable fruit presence with a moderate alcohol bite as well. Pretty good medium bodied biere de garde.

b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Dark translucent orange color with large off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was very weak with light malts. Flavor had light fruit and malt flavors, some caramel and spices. It did taste a little oxidized, I’m not sure how old the bottle was, but I think it would have been more flavorful if fresh.
