Every year on the 24th of February, the birthday of "Charles the fifth", the Brewery brews the Gouden Carolus "Cuvee of the Emperor" in a limited quantity and with an eye on the highest quality and tradition.

This unique brewing, with only extra fine Belgian hops and with a higher alcohol level, guarantees a better evolution in the time, than the already known Gouden Carolus Classic.

The 75cl bottles are closed with a quality cork. Excellent to store several years. This exceptional ale ages well, developing a refined complexity and intense aromas. With powerful notes of roasted malts, caramel and plums, its surprisingly soft and fruity aroma combines a warm roundness with a refreshing taste. An imperial brew to cherish and enjoy in moderation.

Was 8% abv in 2000-2002, 10% in 2003 and 11% in 2004.

DISCLAIMER: This is a dark beer and the label has a blue diagonal line.

Fules (1302) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2017
(567 napja palackozták) Sötétbarna szín, közepes, tartós, bézs hab. Édeskés, karamelles, datolyás illatok. Édes, karamelles, enyhén datolyás, vörösboros, kissé vaníliás, fahéjas, hordós ízvilág, aszalt gyümölcsös aromákkal. Az alkoholt sikerült jól elrejteni. Krémes, testes, lágyan szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Nagyon finom, kiváló arányokkal és egyensúllyal rendelkező nedű.

Exceptional and amazing beer. An incredible flavor and aroma. The best beer I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beamer (97) - Malden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2017
Heerlijk zoet biertje, karamel en kruidig, nit bitter, ondanks zijn hoge alcohol percentage van 11% drinkt hij gevaarlijk gemakkelijk weg. Fles van 0,75 l is niet echt een straf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 Heerlijk bier! Samen een 0.75 fles gedeeld. Zoet bier, niet voor iedereen maar voor ons een geniale quadruppel!

rodenbachvintage (84) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2017
Een bier die je moet liggen hebben in de kelder. Warme, volle smaak zoals de beste wijnen. Zoet, maar niet te zoet, smaken van zoete karamel, ondanks zijn hoge alcoholgehalte zeer vlot drinkbaar.

Sampled from 0.75 l bottle from ’BierPost.com’, best before December 2023, about four years old. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a little fruity aroma of caramel, dark honey, vanilla, prunes and raisins. Quite sweet, malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of caramel, vanilla, dark honey, raisins, prunes and a touch of chocolate, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good!
