COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperors 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.

Bottle from a good Belgian friend named Olivier. Many thanks! Aroma of dried plums, caramel, chocolate, lebkuchen. Taste mirrors the aroma. Boozy lebkuchen in a bottle. Very good!

Myonlyvice (223) - DENMARK - DEC 27, 2016
I guess this is what Tuborg Classic tries to be but fails. Dark reddish amber with a short lasting head and lively carbonation. Aroma and taste is mostly malt and yeast with a slightly bitter aftertaste

kaserov (421) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2016
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retencin). Carbonatacin media. Aroma profundo a caramelo, malta, licor; como si viniera de un ambiente cerrado, realmente potente. Sabor dulzn, acaramelado y maltoso; al final del trago hay regusto alcohlico que te calienta, pero no es excesivo. Algo habitual dentro del grupo de las Belgian Strong Ale pero entiendo que sea un clsico. Muy disfrutable.

Bottle in the Belgian Bar, Altrincham. Ruby with a cream head. Red fruits aroma. The taste is full and fruity. Spicy with red fruits, christmas cake and port. Very nice.

ManVsBeer (9211) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle bought in Brugge as a Christmas present. Deep dark reddish-brown with a thin head. Has a sweet and soapy aroma, with a smooth tasting sweetness in its taste. It doesnt quite feel its strength through a pleasant milkiness.

Oscura y fuerte. Sus matices de levadura belga son muy intensos. Banana, fruta madura, etc. -acompaan perfectamente cada trago. Al subir la temperatura salen especias y toffe redondeando el conjunto.
