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.

KombatAle (129) - New Brunswick, - MAY 19, 2013
Pours clear dark red with a long lasting and light lacing frothy big beige head. Aroma is complex, spicy and very estery with anise, raisin, plum, roasted malt, caramel, bubblegum, pear, strawberry, red apple, apricot, banana and candy. Taste is medium sweet with a tiny acidic note. Body is medium, texture is light creamy and oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes sweet.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Sinnesgod. Skulle dock föredra van der keize blauw med sin magnifika alkholstyrka och sin insmickrande sötma som mäter sig nästan med min pojkvän❤

biilz (209) - SPAIN - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Весьма качественный Бельгийский Эль . Аромат довольно приторный, карамельный. Вкус шоколада, кофе и карамели. Сразу после глотка ощущаются винные нотки. Пиво слегка сушит. Имеется немалая кислинка. К сожалению к концу бокала немного ощущается алкоголь.

Aukedebier (36) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Bought at drankdozijn.nl in a 750ml bottle with cork. Appearance; deep golden to amber colored beer with modest beige head. Nose; red whine, sweet malts and Belgium yeast. Taste; brown sugar, dried peach, plum, slight roasted malts and herbal hops. Later some red wine taste with the linger of alcohol. An ancient recipe, reborn in a brewery which has respect for beer. Yes, this is a very nice beer. You can taste the craftsmanship in this. Love it, and we will meet again.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Stor fylde og smag. Dejlig belgisk øl med god balance mellem bitterhed og sødme.

AssKicker (657) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - OCT 14, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Bouteille de 75cl. Couleur brune/rouge, mousse assez légère. Nez sur les fruits secs et raisin sec. En bouche on ajoute à ça des notes de pruneau et de caramel qui apparaît davantage en fin de bouche. Petite sensation de madérisation et vinification. Carbo puissante, un peu dommage. Mais globalement c'est bien plaisant.

llucmaduell (289) - barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2017
Tot un classic que crec que hauria de millorar . Es una bona cervesa per iniciar-se en el món de la cervesa belga però li falta complexitat i profunditat.

4.2
julesxxl (66) - Cholet, FRANCE - SEP 22, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 (équilibrée, un peu vinaigrée, un peu fruitée, un peu trop fleurie)
