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.

Dark Belgian beer (Ale?). Brown in colour, clear. Sweeter in taste; long, mild and delightful finish. Easily one of the best darks Ive tried.

Bottle. Dark brown with cream top. Light sweet aroma of malts and barn. Sweet caramel taste with malts, dark fruits, liquorice, alcohol, brown sugar and a hint of barn. Fizzy bittersweet aftertaste.

BrewWhatIWant (53) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours such a deep red as to be almost black, with a tan head. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel. Taste is fairly sweet but not excessive with a bit of saltiness. Notes of malt, plums and caramel, and beneath that hints of chocolate, tobacco and wine and an earthy hoppiness. Alcohol is a bit too noticeable. Full bodied with lots of carbonation. Very good!

Karol (893) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2016
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 (207) - 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 (362) - 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.
