This one is stated Gouden Carolus Grand Cru of the Emperor (pretty high accomplishment if you ask me). But this didn't quite live up to its self proclaimed greatness. Pours a muddy reddish brown color with basically no head and little lacing. Lots of floating yeast sediment in the beer. But the nose on it is terrific. Lots of sweet maltiness. The initial taste backs up the nose. Plums and raisins combined with a hit of sharp carbonation. But this follows with a buttery diacetyl taste that starts out nice but eventually becomes too sharp and ends up tasting like scotch. Finish is dry and yeasty with some more raisiny sweetness and it lingered for a long, long time. Good, but I couldn't drink too many of these. I would definitely age this one if I get it again.
