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.

Smells like aweful old cheese. Flavours of burnt malts and caramel. Glad it tastes better than it smells.

VsXsV (3752) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2011
30 cl bottle. Dark brown, almost black, clear liquid with a mahogany tinge and big fluffy, tan head. Malty smell with notes of caramel, dark fruits (figs, plums), belgian yeast esters, spices and some roasty and toasty notes. Nice! Taste has similar notes and is quite sweet, a bit roasted, light to medium bitter with quite some alcoholic notes. Not as elegant as, say, the trappist equivalents. Medium to full bodied with nice carbonation (maybe a bit high for the style) and smooth mouthfeel. Good example of the style but a bit too unrefined to go among the best.

Kristall-König (2674) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2011
Malziger, fruchtiger Geruch mit weinartigen Einflüssen. Stürmischer süß-malziger Start. In der Mitte fruchtige Nuancen von Ananas mit Alkoholnote. Malziger und alkoholisch wärmender Abgang. Ein sehr schweres Bier - fast überladen. Test vom 5.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

A move bitter taste with soms sweet for a nice balance. Nice aroma. Probably the best Dutch beer.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2011
330ml bottle from Sliterij Van Bergen, Eindhoven (Netherlands)
The beer in the glass is dark brown, with a nice creamy head. Smell of dark malts, slightly alcoholic and sweet. Starts very sweet. Fruity, with aroma of grapes. In addition, malty-sweet, with a slight alcohol note, however, does not interfere. The middle part is mildly vinous again, very fruity and malty-sweet. The finish is clearly shown alcoholic, again dominated by a fruity-sweet malt aroma!

07/08/2010 30cl bottle @ Jois’ place Thanks to Jois for the bottle!

A clear reddish to dark brown beer. Very little beige head, unstable. Aroma: sweet and malts, hint of chocolate, caramel and dates. Also chemical candy aroma. MF: low carbon (not enough), full body though. Little sweet, mainly acidic. Aftertaste is sour with a slight hint of roasted malts.

Koelschtrinker (15603) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 13, 2011
Sehr malziger und süßer Antrunk, ab dem Mittelteil würzig, aber nicht übermäßig. Alkoholische Noten sind dabei deutlich erkennbar, stören aber nur wenig. Säuerlich und etwas herb ist das Bier zur selben Zeit, im Nachgeschmack wird es noch einmal würzig und fast schon künstlich süß. Test vom 8.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,10,8,9,9,9 - 8,90

Yiffi_Duda (1) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2011 does not count
A lovely golden red color, with a good head on it. Smells sweet and of nutmeg, has a wonderful rich lingering flavour with sweet notes as well as some subtle bitter notes. Fizziness on the tongue is a bit distracting. Overall though a delightful beer I would gladly have again!
