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.

Nice variation of the triple. NIce malty flavor profile with subdued fruity spiciness. More drinkable than the Piraat.

Piwo butelkowe. Słodkie aromat słodowy, czuć też miodem. Kolor ciemny bursztyn, klarowny z bardzo przyzwoitą pianą jak na ten procentarz to aż szok. W smaku landrynkowa słodycz z rozgrzewającą dobrze zbalansowaną alkoholową kontrą, duże wysycenie. Wybitnie dobre piwo.

Fajnie opakowane, wyjątkowo pijalne, choć alkohol zbyt wyraźnie moim zdaniem wyczuwalny.

Teran (310) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 20, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2015 Copper dark, interesting caramel with no sweetness, butterscotch, a hint of citrus. Very, very strong and mouthfeel. Belgium on the ride!

Sweet black cherry taste balanced well with a strong alcohol presence, and a weedy/hoppy aftertaste. This one is powerfully tasty and just plain powerful.

dear lord, what a beer! dark, cloudy, and brooding, with a fluffy tan head. the aroma is enough to make me wish my wife wore it as cologne...dark fruit, dried fruit, caramel, dough and an alcoholic warmth on the nose. taste-wise, this is so layered its ridiculous. more caramel maltiness, tons of dark fruit, candi sugar, a chewy doughiness, loads of spiciness...finish is caramel, fruit, and a little bitterness. glorious! (the bottles make great candleholders for your bar, too!)

Malty, caramel aroma. Almost no head to speak of. Lots of caramel on the tongue, oily, sticks to the tongue. A bit sweeter than I expected, which takes away from how much I like it.

a really interesting and tasty beer. despite the high alcohol content it still has a very high drinkability. though it seems i always enjoy drinking beers with high alcohol contents...
