Every year Brewery Het Anker in Mechelen is celebrating the birth of Charles V who was raised in Mechelen by his aunt and spoke fluent Dutch. On this special day they produce a special edition of the Gouden Carolus: Cuvee van de Keizer Imperial Dark. A beer that has received many awards since it was launched in 1999. It is stored for 2 years in Oak barrels.

The beer is described by the brewery as follows: “This exceptional ale ages well, developing a refined complexity and intense aromas. With powerful notes of roasted malts, caramel and plums, its surprisingly soft and fruity aroma combines a warm roundness with a refreshing taste. An imperial brew to cherish and enjoy in moderation.” ( read full description).

This year I had the occassion to attend the open brew day on a cold but very sunny weekend.
