Sorry homoeccentricus, can't agree with you on this one. My vote for the classiest beer would be Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer Blauw/Blue. Brewed for a king's birthday.
King, king, king...
Emperor, you mean. Emperor Charles V was born in Ghent, Flanders, Belgium, in the year 1500.
Other than that I wouldn't be able to recognize a classy person if s/he tried to impale me longitudinally.
Sorry, we here in the good ol' USA don't get such distinctions. King = Emperor.
