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.

Nice overall, but a few strange quirks. Perhaps a bit too sweet, not much aroma at first.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Bottle, thank you very much jbrus. Warm rusty red with little tan head. Smells sweet with caramel, flan, and custard aromas. Low carbonation, good quaffable body. Interesting flavor profile with slightly chalky finish. Sweetness does not become cloying. Is nuanced. Quote Oakes "A Dutch take on an old ale" suits it perfectly-mature, solid, with strong Dutch character!

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle 30cl. Pours a murky brown colour with almost no head and a small amount of carbonation. Smell is grassy and also very much like a dubbel beer, sweet and bitter mixed greatly. Taste is very good and clean, clearly some malts and hops there with some vague fruits. Goes down very nice, no trace of the alcohol.

This tastes too much like red wine for my taste. Someone who likes their beer to taste like dark fruits might enjoy this, but it’s not for me.

Bottle. Ruby red with a brown layer. Light dusty wooden port and grape aroma. Sweet sugar base, wood, cherries, raisins, dry tannin notes, tilts into the molassis, lingering barrique notes. Medium body with a dry mouthfeel, sticky afterwards.

Ingevara (850) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2008
Dark, small head. Sweet with a strong taste of alcohol. There are some nice desireable romas, but all the alcohol sort of take away the interest.

<i<Bottled. Clear ruby, small creamy head. Raisiny madeira aroma. Sweet and sticky with roasty, chewy malt covered by some bubblegum esters and raspberry brandy. Towards the finish without bitterness it akll drowns in sweetness. More power than depth.

My wife bought me a Hertog Jan sample pack of 6 beers. I had never had them before this and I have to say the Grand Pretige was a suprising stand-out beer that really opened my eyes. It’s so easy to drink but FULL of great flavor. I lucked out because the sample pack contained 2. I suggest trying this.
