COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beautifully balanced, dense fruit heavy with plums. Light bitterness and no overly dominant malt. This is a quite fabulous beer.

Delicious. Blueberry and not at all bitter. I wonder how it would taste if I'd kept it for ten years. Don't have that kind of patience though.

From small bottle. Wonderful dark fruit aroma with thin lacy head. Complex flavors, strong alcohol content, but incredibly smooth. Sweeter than other dark strong ales with perfect carbonation

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 anno 2016, colore ambrato scuro, schiuma fine compatta e persistente, al naso vaniglia canditi e amarena, bassa carbonazione, sapore costantemente dolce, banana, cocco e vaniglia. Non si sente l’alcol nonostante gli 11 gradi, molto equilibrata. una delle migliori birre in assoluto
