Cerveza de cuerpo medio y baja carbonatación. Del aroma se destaca la levadura, la malta, el caramelo y la vainilla. El problema de la cerveza viene al probarla, ya que es muy dulce y el final es largo pero agridulce. Se siente en exceso el caramelo y eso a gusto personal le resta puntos.

Yeah...Gulden Drakk is some damn good tasty brew. When I see it, I always snatch up a few 4-packs. Its just a delicious, creamy and complex beer to sit back and drink slowly from your favorite glass.

Bottled and presumably bottle conditioned
pours a brown sugar body with tan coloured head that's decent enough
aroma is creme brulee, you know when they've got that sugar bubbling.
brandy and molasses in the flavour with plenty o booze
