"Gulden Draak is re-fermented in the bottle! It is a living beer! A dark brown Triple ale, which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples. The second fermentation offers the nice creamy head and the full body of the centuries-old brewers yeast. It is a beer that you can actually nibble to adventure the complex taste. Gulden Draak balances a natural malt toffee-like sweetness with a mellow hoppiness and some hoppy accents. The aroma is round, sweet, and hides the 10.5% alcohol per volume. Another name for this type of complex beer is 'barley wine.' You sip and enjoy this beer slowly, as a treat you definitely deserve. The Gulden Draak has been the festive beer of the proud Flemish city of Gent for many centuries. The Gulden Draak statue has sat on the top of the Gent Belfry for over 700 years!" —importer
"Oh yeah — dark and inviting with that beautiful Belgian-style lacing draped on the glass. Aromas of toffee, licorice root, taffy, and cake batter, with hints of bubblegum and peppery alcohol, and a faintness of raisins. Smooth and a little chewy, with a slick, medium body. A tad thick on the malt sweetness to start, the alcohol soon turns the tides with a very warming, peppery alcohol. The sweetness comes in with a layer of toffee, some red grape skin, and a suggestion of cooked vegetables, which fades quickly. The peppery flavor meets a dry, toasted, biscuity flavor middle to end. Finishes slightly alcoholic and sweet.

"A big, tasty treat here; complex, yet dangerously inviting, as the sweetness melds well with the alcohol. Reminiscent of a young Port wine, so obviously Gulden Draak is a perfect candidate to throw at just about any cheese that has a blue vein running through it." —BeerAdvocate Magazine
