Gouden Carolus Classic
Brewery: Brouwerij Het Anker
Style: Belgian Strong Ale

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.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
My favourite beer ever...
I first tried the classic a couple of years ago - it was love at first taste. Beautifully smooth, elegant body, lovely dark malt on the nose and the warmth just brings it all together. Can't recommend this beauty enough!
This beer is really really decent. Lots of caramel malty goodness, hints of spice and fruit. Slides down easily and makes you wish the bottle was bigger. Wouldn't get sick of this one.
Another Belgian beer of high quality. Quite different to the other Belgian beers I tried .
Drinks a bit heavier than most Belgians!
A dark Belgian Strong Ale, you won't find anything else like it around the city. Very lightly carbonated, this beer. Nonetheless, It's refreshing to find Belgian beers of this nature so close to Sydney.
