COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperor’s Beer" which is top-fermented and bottle conditioned following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even improves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and rich bouquet.

Deep red color with big, cloudy, lacy, beige head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, malty with some berries and alcohol hints. Flavor is sweet, raisiny, syrupy roasty malty, spicy, some licorice with drie fruits and alcohol hints. Full-bodied, alcholic and foamy carbonated palate.

AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2008
There is a dark fruit flavor and aroma to this beer. It also seems to take on characteristics of an alcohol-laden Butterfinger candy bar.

33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, clear, good head, good brew, but not a topper

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Cork and cage - deep mahogany pour with a creamy off white head. This beer is pretty much just a malt bomb. Candi sugar, toffee, caramel, prunes, port. Dried dark fruit flavor - raisins prunes. A moment of grapefruit, abrupt bitter finish.

jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Really nice pour, dark brown with a nice bit of lace. Fruity, with sherry-like nice dryness that sets nicely as a contrast to the molasses malt sweetness.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy well carbonated dark nut brown, with a large firm tan fantastic head. Nose is sweet with dark fruit, plum and blackberry, and just a hint of alcohol. Taste is spicy- like an Orval. Sweet with a roast coffeeish taste and a bitter finish that lingers. Dry. Certainly complex
