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.Faint hazy, deep, deep amber brown, with super fine bubbled, large, lasting tan head generating drift wood pattern lace on the glass. Fresh caramel malt, bubblegum, banana and a light cookie dough yeast aroma. Rich velvety smooth festive beer palate. Medium soft body, alcohol well masked with big classy balanced yeast and caramel flavours. Light bitter and sweeter fruity malty kick off, soft sweet malty halftime and final. Kind of a softer version of its bigger brother, the Noel. Both are absolutely delicious with chocolate or christmas cake, or even plum pudding.
