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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, - JAN 27, 2013
Deep chestnut copper with a rich foamy off white head which lasts. Bright floral and fruits in the aroma, strawberry, raspberry, along with darker date and molasses notes. Flavour follows the nose, with a rich sugary backbone and those lighter fruits sitting on top. Lovely richness to the mouthfeel, tending towards the creamy and slick. Carbonation is there but not over the top. Warming in the finish. Drank with a steaming bowl of mussels on a winter Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed.

cervmagpt (869) - PORTUGAL - SEP 13, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 26D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 16020 (BBF 15/02/2019). AROMA: moderate malt aroma with caramel notes, followed by dried prunes and a alcohol aroma (almost solvent). APPEARANCE: dark ambar color and clear. medium beige head with good retention. lace formation. TASTE: similar to the aroma with medium malt character (toasty, caramelly) and dried prunes flavor. medium-low to low bitterness with a slightly bitter and dry finish. PALATE: medium body with medium carbonation. faint alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a good belgian strong ale, more suited for aging.
