Beer 21 – Gouden Carolis Noel

Style: Belgian Dark Ale

Purchased at: Vintage Estate

What makes this beer different: It’s just plain great

Will I be drinking this again: For sure

Grade: A

11/30/09: Sometimes it makes me sad that Belgian beers are typically only 11.2 ounces. I feel cheated because I love them so much! (as I wipe the tears). Damn you Belgian monks for teasing me!

This one has undoubtedly landed in my top 5 Winter beers category. This one is a bit sweeter than most Belgian Darks, but its perfect for me. Lots of brown sugar taste, with a bit of cinnamon/ginger flavor. I poured this one down pretty quick because I couldn’t stop drinking it. If I had another I would have popped it open right away. If you run across this one give it a try.
