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 imporves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and its rich bouquet.

    ‎750ml cork bottle served in a snifter at around 12 degrees:

    Pours an opaque brown robe showing a timid reddish hue and a certain cloudiness. The hazel head seems creamy and finely structured. It develops great lacing and a good retention.

    The nose is sweet and complex with strong notes of plums, candied fruit and softer hints of cantaloupe or muskmelon and alcohol.

    On the tongue, this fine brew explodes into a wild and sweet mixture of milk chocolate, caramel, sugar cane, instant coffee and banana. It feels extra delicate and breaks down on the palate but still keeps its incredible density until it dissolves into a semi-dry finish.

    Awesome Belgian brew which represents insanely well what a Dubbel should be.
