Gouden Carolus Noël Review

Gouden Carolus Noël is a true winter warmer. This Belgian strong dark ale boasts 6 different herbs and spices and 3 kinds of Belgian hops to make this classic Christmas beer.

It pours dark ruby-red with a tight cream-colored foam crown that has lots of staying power. The aroma is black licorice (anise), chocolate, and sweet coffee. It tastes of sweet toasted malts, chocolate, black licorice (anise), cinnamon, plums, cherry and cola. It’s a fruit cake in a glass! The 10.5% ABV alcohol is well incorporated in this medium-bodied beer.

Gouden Carolus Noël is made by Brouwerij Het Anker, one of the oldest family breweries in Belgium. This Christmas beer is so full of flavor, you can make a party game out of naming what you taste.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
