Grand Cru is a dark chestnut-colored Belgian-style Ale with vibrant fermentation aromas of fruity esters and spicy phenols. A sweet caramel malt, raisin, and plum-like character combines with the complex fermentation profile of our Belgian yeast strain and hints of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Its full body and velvety mouthfeel make for a slow and satisfying drinking experience. Grand Cru is meant to be savored and will age nicely.

Bottle from citybeer in SF. Dark reddish brown with off white head. Head dissipated pretty quickly. Aromas of cherries, brandy, toffee, caramel; similar flavours. Tastes like an AleSmith. Probably my favourite from all the brought back from SF.

Bammers54 (90) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Draft, Brew Dog Birmingham, really well constructed barley wine style, quiet alcoholic on the taste, but with enough malt and hop to keep it balanced. Lots going on throughout start to finish, very well put together

The_Osprey (3841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Dark brick red, small ring of white head. Aroma is a bit weird - I’m mostly getting broccoli or kale. Body is medium, slightly foamy, medium carbonation. Taste is like a sour brown initially, white bread, big sweet toffee malt, no alcohol presence. Certainly very drinkable for the ABV.
