Delicious strong ale, with a hint of fruit and brown sugar, just enough, in my opinion a must!

Gouden Carolus Classic 8.3% Bottle at Aeon Liquors in Kyoto.
A deep brown with a light beige head that lingers like a milk mustache. The aroma is candied fruits, plums, raisins, biscuit. Fairly light bodied but rich in flavor and with a bit of heat. The taste is toffee, raisins and malt balls covered in chocolate. Good stuff.
I’ve had this beer previously in a big bottle and loved it, yet never rated it (because the thought had not yet crossed my mind to post ratings!). This on-tap tasting comes from the Belgian Beer Cafe at the airport in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, while waiting for a flight. It’s pretty much what I remember -- very, very good. Aroma: dark dried fruits. Flavor: figs, dates, ripe plums, raisins, prunes, caramelized brown sugar, yeast, bananas, ripe black grapes. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied; creamy, soft finish. adamnase (707) - Kronoby, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2017

En rødbrun belgisk ale, med kraftig krop og en rigtig god humlesmag af den ekstra cascadehumle der er lagt i.
Opskriften stammer fra 1369 hvor den blev, ifølge pålidelig kilde, serveret til krjer Karls d. 5. jagtselskaber. riksylver (4) - - JUL 9, 2017 does not count
