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, While this has quite nice complex aroma, for me the palate is far too sweet, and a little cloying, Just too sweet for me.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Rich brown, tan head with very nice lacing. Nose is plum, raisin, caramel, tons of other dark fruits, yeast, honey, sweet heaven. Flavor is yeast, toffee, caramel, tobacco and dark fruits, rich malt. A bit of hoppiness comes out in the finish, along with more yeast and a very rich fruit pit flavor. Body is stunning - very soft, turning to ultra light bubbliness when it hits my tongue. Just wow.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2008
Deep dark red with a microbubbly head that lasts and leaves a very appealing lacing. Roasted malts, mixed with chives and an earthy touch in the nose. Malty warm caramel and butter toffee taste wars a bit with alcoholic bite. Clean finish. The booziness is unbalancing, rather nice none the less. I prefered it to the Carolus Tripple which supprised me.

AR (1000) - 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.
