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.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2008
30 cl bottle, bought in Amstelveen. Dark brown color, nice beige head. Aroma is fruit and hops and roasted malt. Flavor is dried fruit, very sweet, roasted malt and hoppy bitterness. Almost too sweet, but not over the top.

ceramic bottle, best before jul 09. aroma : dark fruits, but a bit faint. lots of dark fruits and aged beer taste, not much btterness. i don’t like the style (love belgian whites) and it was too aged-beer / winey and too little taste.

My comments are based in comparations to other strong ale I tasted before. This beer has a poor aroma, too much ethanol aroma, so it is difficult to discover another aromas, appearance: color is pretty good actualy but soon foam dissapear and a minimal head ramains, at the end it becomes nothing which makes a naked beverage far to look like a good ale. flavor is pretty good actualy, bit watery but adequeale balance between malt taste and bitterness,

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Bottle, thx to fonefan. (BB-date 060615) A clear, copper beer with a nice, beige head. Some oxidation in the aroma, but not more than that it felt nice. Else there’s dried fruits, caramel, some alcohol and sherry. Dried fruits, some roasted malt and a little pleasant oxidation in the flavor. Caramel-sweet finish with some alcohol. Full-bodied and warming. Even though it was and old beer, it was nice, but I guess you have to appreciate a little oxidation to enjoy it that much past BB-date. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. (080412)Bottle, from trade with jbrus. It pours a clear, ruby brown body under a small, beige head. The aroma is quite nice, but a little boring, with dried fruits, alcohol and some caramel. A bit heavy on the alcohol I think. Sweet flavor with alcohol and dried fruits, also here the alcohol is a bit more evident than I would prefer. Warming, full-bodied mouthfeel. Dried fruits and sweetness in the finish. A quite nice one, but it lacks a bit on complexity and it’s too warm. (090430)

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2008
0.33 L. bottle. Poured dark brown in color with a medium sized tan head with left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma initially hits with strong alcohol and a dark fruit and caramel sweetness. Taste of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, figs, raisons and some mild spices. The alcohol detected in the nose was completely hidden in the taste. Very nice body and its quite enjoyable.

ha1ag (756) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2008
Bottled from AH in Mestreech. Full ruby red color with small beige head and nice lacing. Licoric nose. Aroma has licor and lots of alcohol. Flavour is dominated by spices, alcohol and fruits. Luckily not yeasty which is typically overdone in his class. Nicely composed beer despite being 10%

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2008
dark brown and ruby color w/ a big light tan head, lots of lace. Aroma has fruits, very dark.. definite raisin, maybe a touch of plum lots of sugar caramel, lots of sweet. Pal is full well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor is great huge sweet syrups followed by a light fruitiness of plum and raisin in brown sugar, theres a mullberry or blueberry or something hidden in there as well along w/ a touch of dry wood in the finish. I really liked this stuff.
