16 Aug

DSCN1944-001Every year on the 24th of February, the birthday of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V (born in Ghent, Belgium), Brouwerij Het Anker brews the Gouden Carolus (“HOW-den ca-ROLL-us”) “Cuvee of the Emperor” in a limited quantity. This is age-worthy beer, hence the vintage printed on the bottle. If you have the patience, lay this beer down and enjoy it 5-10 years from now. If you don’t, pop the cork and taste the extraordinary raisin and spice notes in this unique, well-malted brew. 750ml. $14
