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.

Strong dark beer with a bit of a reddish tint. Rich flavour which reminds of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and coffee.

From Oct 2005 bought 2 bottles of this stuff at Wilbur's in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Pours so darned beautifully ending up a dark gold in my Chimay glass. Nice head that lingers with very nice lacing around the glass. The smell is a superb apple, reminiscent of my favourite soda..Jones Green Apple. I couldn't wait to dive right in. ;^) The taste is a plethora of fruity flavours that are dominated by apple but yet aren't.(if you catch my meaning) At 10% abv, I want to just sip and enjoy but the drinkabilty of this brew has to be experienced to be appreciated. This is, for me, a truly world class experience in Triples and I'll certainly buy it again! Long live the Golden Dragon!!

Słabo ukryty alkohol w smaku i aromacie przede wszystkim. Leżakuję 20 butelek, więc miejmy nadzieję opinia się zmieni...

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Muy buena, poca carbonatacion y de sabor más bien dulce y suave. No sé nota la graduación de alcohol casi.

Color marrón rojizo. Espuma blanca de 3 dedos, carbonatación media, poca retención. Mucho cuerpo, y lo que más me llama la atención es el toque a vino que tiene, probablemente de la levadura. Me ha encantado.

Nice amber color with medium sized brownish head. Sweet red berry fruity smell. Dominant grapes aroma, dried fruits, raisins and some malt in aroma. Taste is sweet, like fruity sugar sweet. Awesome.

IOzh (194) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - SEP 15, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, yeast, raisins, malts. Full body with average carbonation. Taste is very well bitter-sweet balance with a hint of alcohol. Very nice.

Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - SEP 14, 2017
Gulden Draak pours a hazy light brown color with a long-lasting and frothy beige head that leaves decent lacing behind. The nose has notes of honey, caramel, and molasses as well as a hint of vanilla. The flavor hits with a sweet attack of caramel, cereal, cream, and sugar, followed by down-to-earth, full-bodied, and creamy mid-palate of baked apple, molasses, plum, and hints of vanilla and banana. The subsequent finish is gently bitter, tannic, peppery, and soothingly warming. A classic brew.

Det er sgu en fin øl, der er noter af rødvin i smagen, hvilket gør det nok ikke er for alle. Den er ikke så tung, som man måske skulle tro, men der er hammer på smagen. Hvis man er til små søde øl her af rødvin, så er det sgu nok en god øl!
