COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zwaar donker-bier met een rijpe volle zoet-bittere smaak.
Grand Prestige wordt door ons met zorg gebrouwen met de beste ingrediënten. Het is één van de zwaarste speciaalbieren van Nederland. Grand Prestige is een bijzonder bier, dat ook wel "gerstewijn" word genoemd. Het heeft ook veel eigenschappen gemeen met een goede wijn, zoals de volle, rijpe smaak. Wanneer u de tijd neemt voor uw Grand Prestige geniet u van de volle romige schuimkraag, ruikt u de hop en kunt u zoet en bitter duidelijk onderscheiden. De smaak en de geur hebben de rust nodig om zich te ontwikkelen. Dus u kunt Grand Prestige best een tijdje bewaren, tot u de gelegenheid heeft er eens rustig voor te gaan zitten.

dreamer (152) - PORTUGAL - JUN 5, 2015
[50cl thanks to ruigo] Dark reddish brown color, with a small tan head. Medium carbonation full body and creamy texture. Aroma is spicy, plums, malt, red berries, caramel. Taste is bitter, spicy, sweet, with alcohol too much present... yes, it has 10%, but cold be more disguised... Aftertaste is astringent, and long sweet.

10% ABV Wheaty nose that blooms and broadens developing aromatics of plum, dried honey dates and lilies. Flat to medium head. Ebony hued; dark caramel when held up to the light. A very inviting and promising color for a quad. The first mouthfeel is subtly carbonated and hefty. The syrupy caramelized flavors are nicely rounded off resulting in a finish that is balanced without the harsh bitterness of burnt toast or immature hops. Heavy. Should be enjoyed slowly and sipped Definitely to be had ice cold, but develops interesting fruity dimensions after being allowed to oxidize and breathe a little at room temperature. Chalice drinking vessel is perfect.

vidmidia (85) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 30, 2015
Marrom, quase opaca. Espuma rala de curta duração. Aroma e sabor de mel, ameixas, caramelo e café, tendo alguma acidez no sabor. Adocicada, álcool perceptível. Retrogosto ácido de final alcoólico.

emartell (289) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAY 17, 2015
Aromas a malta tostada, caramelo y manzana. Color obscuro con destellos granate a contraluz, cuerpo medio, carbonatacion baja, Corona de espuma media de baja retención. En boca sabores a ciruela, higo, pasas y uva, con un retrogusto dulce, pero muy agradable En general una cerveza fácil de beber, sabrosa y que esconde muy bien su potencia alcohólica.

Maakun (1524) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Shared bottle. Dark brown with medium sized ran head. Lots of marzipan, red apple, bubblegum, spices, gingerbread, brown sugar. Like my mothers apple pie... Very boozy. Very sweet with alcoholic bitter finish. Full bodied. Better then I expected, especially for a beer that needs artificial coloring. Still a nasty alcoholic mess though.

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2015
330ml Bottle at Arendsnest Proeflokaal, Amsterdam (€4.50):
I wasn’t sure about this one straight off the bat but it certainly grew on me, perhaps it was the 10% alcohol content finally catching up with me but the beer was a well-balanced one with some nice touches of sweetness that helped it go down easier than it should have. Despite not being a beer that is really going to stand out from the crowd, Hertog Jan Grand Prestige is a very pleasant & highly drinkable offering that is well worth trying at least once but I’m not sure it’s one that would warrant a second visit.

corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Cette bière n’est pas une quadruple, mais une brune forte que le brasseur classe lui-même dans les « gerstewijn », donc les barley wine … Niveau abv de 10 %. Couleur brune et rousse en transparence, aidée par du E 150 C, caramel ammoniacal... Pourquoi ?? Bulles partout, assez vives. Mousse qui est un nappage au relief curieux sur 2 mm. Arômes de malt cara, vin rouge, prunes mûres, candi, pointe de figue. 1ère bouche à la texture douce, voire moelleuse, sur un malt chocolat, fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche pleine, maltée, mais sucrée. 2ème aux belles nuances, mais grand manque de complexité. Arrière-bouche toujours pleine, douce, mais sans vraie surprise. 3ème très douce, mais quelque chose manque pour une vraie personnalité. Arrière-bouche longue, mais très linéaire. Longueur qui a tendance à descendre sérieusement, manque singulier de complexité. Jambes très difformes. Pas de refermentation !!! Alcool bien, mais sans apport réel au sujet … comme indifférent au sort du duc de Brabant … Finale du même acabit, sans surprise... et sans gloire !! CONCLUSION : bière qui n’a de prestige que le nom … Même le E 150 C n’a pu la sauver de l’indifférence, c’est dire !!!
