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.

Marcius (421) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Appearance with amber color, slightly cloudy liquid and high head of foam. Malty aroma with caramel and fruit. Sweety, hoppy and malty taste. Great beer, very strong and concentrated!

Erzengel (8176) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Das Bier ist schön trüb-amberfarben mit braun-orangenem, cremigen Schaum, der relativ stabil ist.
Der Antrunk ist sehr CO²-haltig-frisch-fruchtig. Im Hauptteil entwickelt dieses Bier seinen vollen Körper sehr cremig und leicht süßlich, wobei doch eine gewisse alkoholische Schärfe zu merken ist. Der Nachgeschmack ist langanhaltend und leicht süßlich-fruchtig mit feiner cremiger Hefenote. Auch ein paar säuerliche Nuancen sind zu erschmecken.
--> Ein sehr schön cremig-mildes Bier mit vollem Körper! Sehr zu empfehlen!
Test vom 20.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,12,12,12 - 11,85

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2002
[1 year after the exp. date] </br>Cloudy brown-amber colour, too much carbonation. Malt nose, nuts. Good malt taste, too much alcohol, liquorice; warming. Ordinary palate. Doesn’t age well, and gets some Madeira character.

caesar (6818) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2004
Clear redbrown color, medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is sharp alcoholic, caramel malty and some vinegar, very weird. Aroma is sweet and malty, light fruity, but also sour vinegar and some alcohol. Sticky palate and alcoholic finish burning in the throat.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours a murky brown with large off-white head. Somewhat unusual aroma, raisins, citrus, dark malts. Flavor takes quite a bit of getting used to, and was extremely intense for the first few sips, with a sharp (think cheese) bitterness. Sour at times, lingering brown bread, black tea, and malt finish, lively carbonation. On the dark end of the biere de garde scale, not unlike a thin bodied dubbel as well. Certainly got better as it warmed.

Bottled:
Winey aroma, notes of port and alcohol. Amber color, small head. Port wine flavor, light sharpness, medium body. Quite alcoholic. Astringent, sourly and hopbitter finish.

rauchbier (3831) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle conditioned, from Beer Cellar in Lincoln . copper bronze, moderate off white head and aggressively high condition. Obvious alcohol in the nose with some Barley wine type maltiness. Full bodied and alcoholic but quite sharp in the mouth with the assertive co2 levels and an apple citric note. Dry finish with some maltiness, lingering yeast and mushroom notes.

Bottle has "order # 1001" stamped on the side, not sure if that’s botlling code or not. Amber with huge off white head, tiny carbonation bubbles, eventually fades to film, and a ring of bubbles. Quick swirl brings it back. Very yeasty bread and malty aroma, lots of caramel and toffee. Also getting some fruit, leaning towards raisin, hard to pinpoint. Flavor is sweet caramel malt up front with quick dose of fruit through the middle. Towards the finish alcohol shows up, alot more alcohol than I expected at 8.5% (maybe because it’s 9am). Finishes very mettalic with grassy/slightly skunky hop bitterness. Just my opinion, butnot the best beer to start with on Sunday morning.
