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.

Had this probably in 1983 for the first time, but not recently (during my RB career). From 75 cl bottle. Deep red-brown color. Beige head. Aroma’s: sweet malts, red fruit, sugarry. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty. Medium bodied. Flavor lingers, but no new flavors.

Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer is dark brown and has a cream colored head, CO2 level is good. In the aroma tones of roasted grains, coffee, mokka and bananas. The taste is soft sweet but not bothersome. The alcohol provides the bite and mocha / coffee give fullness. The finish gives a slightly bitter aftertaste with a nice full mouthfeel. A really nice quadrupel, but La Trappe is just a little better.

Beer is looking good, nice amount of foam that sticks pretty long. Fruity aroma some caramel. But then the taste... wow, it ain’t get better then this! What a rich taste. Bitter but sweet, strong in alcohol but easy to drink. All pieces fall in place for this beer. Don’t drink it to cold that will spoil the beer.

EdwinLitzau (239) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2013
Donkerrood/bruin van kleur, weinig koolzuur, goede laag schuim. Ruikt zoet. Smaakt erg zoet maar drinkt lekker weg. Tamelijk zwaar.

Cassius (47) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2013
Bijna zwart van kleur en zeer zwaar van smaak. Niet veel smaakdiversiteit maar extreme smaakdiepgang. Geen licht beginnertje! Vrij zoet en helemaal geen bittertje te vinden.

KennethArd (186) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2013
Fruity aroma with caramel, nuts and bread. Clear brown with frothy large lasting head. Powerful taste of rye bread, caramel, coffee and nuts. Medium body with creamy and sticky texture. Soft carbonation but maybe the alcohol is too much in focus in the finish.

Maarten1993 (200) - - NOV 6, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Tastes very nice. Smell is pretty neutral. Tastes Sweet and good, very balanced, but a bit "hollow". Misses the pannepot depth. Good beer. Nice and dark and good sweet smell.Updated: a couple of days later I had a 1993 bottle at my sister in law?s birthday, totally awesome!
