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.

33 cl bottle, Maastricht, The Netherlands. Deep amber, mixed floral yeast aroma. Balanced first sip, then some sweetness that slowly transitions to bitterness with a predominantly syrupy finish.

bhensonb (13209) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 14, 2010
Botttle from the Deen market in Volendam. Pours very dark copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma of darker fruits - like dates and raisins. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Rather cooked fruit and a touch of chocolate for flavor. Definitely on the bitter side. Surprisingly good, considering it came from a supermarket.

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Dried cherries, licorice and caramel quickly delve into earthy, wooden hoppiness until this Belgian-style Strong Ale is concluded by surprising dryness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the nearly clear mahogany.
-That nose is quite reminiscent of a Gouden Carolus Classic.
-The definite black grape character is quite "Welch’s" like, which is not really appreciated.
-There sure are lots of added sugars in here...
-Light tartness accompanies the wooden finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2010
On tap at Arendsnest 8/26/09: Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramely malty nose with a touch of raisins. Starts with good dark malty sweetness with a touch of bready yeast and toasty caramel before a drier cookie dough finish and a touch of warmth. A pretty enjoyable dark Belgian (Dutch) strong ale.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2010
Pours out medium brown with a dense white head that lasts. Aroma suggest tiny portion of ginger, vanilla, and overwhelmingly; brown sugar. Taste is sweet with no sign of bitterness anywhere. Alcohol content is well hidden, it does not jump out, even though one can feel that it’s a strong beer. It’s smooth, and even though it’s too sweet for my taste, I think this is an OK beer for a commercial product.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. The nose is mainly of caramel and bubblegum. Sweet. Yeasty finish which is reminiscent of white grapes. Not all that good.

erickok (4612) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 Dark, licorish with next to no foam. Almost no smell. too much alcohol for the strange taste and too fluid body. You may skip this. Update: second tasting was much better. Served warmer the aroma spread caramel and cereal. Taste sweet with apple. Still a weird palate, though.
