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.

yourilevesque (1651) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Bire ambre presqur brune. La mousse est aussi abondante et attirante quelle est difficile dcrire. Un nez de levures belges, de fruits confits, de date, de fruits noirs schs, de gomme balloune et un petit quelque chose qui me rappelle le crme soda. Je suis gagn par ces saveurs dune grande complexit o jamais je nai limpression de boire in breuvage 8,5% dalcool. La texture est la fois riche et lgre. Soyeux, ce liquide mapparat profondment sexy. Il me serait facile de dguster cette bire rgulirement.

Zeer verfrissend en fruitige smaak. Alhoewel het 9% is proef je de alcohol niet zo overdreven. Heeft award voor beste bier 2012 gewonnen.
