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.

Bottle from tesco. Aroma: honey, caramel, flowers, spice, fruity aroma. Coper color with red notes, big creamy head. Taste: honey, banana, spice, citrus, medium to full body but very drinkable beer. Slight hoppy ending.

Bottle from Lidl. Yeasty. Very. Alcohol did the proper job here. Dark amber color. Very sweet taste. Totally. It’s that sweet I cannot actually enjoy it as it is sweet from the begging till the end.

Had this on nitro tap. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy, creamy white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum, and caramel. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and clove. Has a smooth and creamy body. Delicious.

Strong brown bitter ale with pleasant smell. In fact it is very Belgian, strong and tasty. I just don’t like its bitter taste.

AleRider78 (1502) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2017
Pours a beige coloured large foamy head. Has a coppery, light brown appearance. Dirty lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, malts, spices and dark type fruits. Flavours of roasted malts, dark fruits (raisins, plums) toasty and nutty malts. Hints of citrus hops but quite faint. Chocolate notes in the finish, with hints of caramel. Alcohol is just barely noticeable, nicely balanced. Full bodied, sweet and bitter well balanced. Puckering and chalky mouthfeel. Goes down very smoothly.

kluczbork (541) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle. Aroma- intensive dark fruits- figs and raisins, spicy notes and brown sugar. Dark copper, a bit hazy, with a high, beige head, which quickly reduces to a ring. Taste- the same, well-balanced and intensive combination. Medium-bodied, with a medium carbonation. Distinct, classy beer.

Vynikající strong ale, jeden z nejlepších černých piv, co jsem kdy měl. Masivní říz, bohatá kávovo-čokoládová chuť a hustá krémová pěna.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Bottiglia 33 cL e teku, pub (Valhalla, Pavia). Colore rosso mattone, schiuma chiara non molto persistente. Al naso è sorprendentemente delicata, profumi dolciastri, soprattutto caramello. In bocca è molto particolare: apertura dolce, arrivano subito il malto e l'alcol. Solo in chiusura si sente il luppolo, comunque molto leggero. Corpo molto consistente. Una birra che sa davvero tanto di pane e di vino. Retrogusto biscottato.
