COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperor’s Beer" which is top-fermented and bottle conditioned following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even improves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and rich bouquet.

eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2001
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2004 excellent stew of roast, dark chocolate, prunes, caramel, fat sweet malt, coriander, astringent spice. some hot alcohol. should cellar magnificently, at the moment it’s a bit raw and scattered.

Nice autumn color with nice apple tones, although a little sweet and the palate is a bit short, strong yeast flavor that detracts

3.5
ssurp (23) - trenton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2001
This is a nice beer. Liked the fruit notes and its somewhat chewy mouthfeel. The malty taste is there, but not overbearing.

pleasantly sweet. a little heavy in the mouth...............................

3.8
Bov (13264) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2001
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2003 dark ruby-brown colour, big creamy head, nice lacing, malty, prune aroma, bready, vinous, very smoot, lightly sweet, sharp bitterness with a touch of acidity, long dry malty finish with notes of alcohol - robust and complex, the freshness of the mouthfeel is tempered by the quite heavy finish

3.2
duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2001
not a fan, but it wasn't that bad, not too rich and bit of toffee? caramel?

3.4
joet (2664) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2001
Some starting berry aromas fade to persistent banana notes. Some candy flavors but herbal and carmel flavors are more dominant in it's medium-low effervescent body. It finishes with some soft alcohol spice. Very nice.

ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - AUG 22, 2001

rosebud (47) - Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA - APR 12, 2001
From the 1st sip I fell in love with this beer, the aroma reminded me of banana's as well as the flavor, very aromatic and nice bubbles, though some might not like this, I found it to be pleasant and relaxing.

2.7
Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2000
Rich, dark Belgian ale. Strong dark fruit notes, and probably too much yeast for my tastes.
