COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulden Draak is a high fermentation beer with secondary fermentation. For the secondary fermentation, wine yeast is used. The white bottle, the black banner, the golden dragon and the red letters, constitute a stylish result that has no equal among the many Belgian special beers. Gulden Draak can be drunk as an aperitif or dessert, or whenever you have the time to sit back and relax. But this barley wine is also perfect with and in stews, especially the Ghent variety. It is also a plus in sauces for red meat, such as a bordelaise. It is particularly suited as a dessert beer, especially in combination with dark chocolate.

Borresteijn (6969) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2008
Bottle @ home. Dark brown beer, big beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruits, sweet malts. Flavour is very sweet, but smooth and chocolate-like so it doesn’t become cloying. Chocolate flavours and dark fruits, some alcohol, slightly metallic taste now and then. Very good massive ale.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Very fruity and estery beer. Alcohol was quite well hidden due to the yeast characters and the extreme carbonation. Very sweet malt. Got some caramel and toffee notes as well. Real good brew. Would buy again.

bw1982 (113) - , Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Pours golden red with tan head. Great aroma and look good in the glass. The flavor was a bit sweeter than I expected, but had plenty of deep flavors such as dark fruits underneath the sugary caramel as well. The sweetness wonderfully hides the high abv. There is no strong rush of alcohol. Overall a delicious beer!

dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2008
This beer pours a dark brown with a medium white head that dissipates very quickly. Very lively carbonation. The aroma is flower and caramel as is the flavor. This beer has a strong pronounced alcohol to it! This was a very good beer. Cheers!
