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.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle from Liquor Mountain, shared by Tadg. Brown sugar nose, fumes. Dark brown color, ruby edges. Super sweet initial, concentrated fruit, prunes, raisins, all flavors flatten out quickly. Medium body. Very thin for a ten-percenter. Sweetness is near cloying.

humlelala (1091) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014
(50 cl ceramic bottle from Irma Axelborg; BBD: couldn’t find but the product code is 04/14:53 024) Poured into a Rochefort goblet. Reveals a clear dark copper body with nice tan head that initially is about one finger thick but sadly dissipates almost instantly leaving only a thin film with small islands and some decent lace on the side of the glass. Aroma is banana and caramel. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body and a sweet finish. Flavour has more caramel and the sweetness masks the alcohol to some extent There’s an additional perfumed quality to the flavour a bit like brown sugar or something. It’s alright but I would have appreciated more complexity in the malt profile and it’s quite a pity the head disappeared so quickly.

WhoU (121) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle South Africa. Pours coke dark brown with red tint and offwhite cream head that does not last long. Aroma is prune fruits christmas cake. Taste is sweet sticky and bitter. Mouthfeel is sticky lasting but light. Overall very enjoyable with more aroma at higher temperatures.

Deep dark colour with some ruby / garnet tinges. Short lasting yellowish white head with mild carbonation. Deep malts and chocolates with plum / sweetish notes. Nice alcohol warming effect on back palate. Beer lighter in body than expected but definitely a "drink again" beer.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Red tinted brown beer with a quickly lowing yellowish head. Big punch of malts and bonfire on the nose, with soft Madeira sugar and warm banana skin. It opens up to a beef stock and marmite aroma, all covered in thick marmalade. Very sweet but fresh enough on the fruits, which bodes well for 3-5 years aging. Gets a bit boozy but has enough aniseed and licorice flavours to balance out the heat. Very enjoyable.

Oroboro24k (6) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2014 does not count
Lekker ietwat zoet biertje dat er geen onduidelijkheid over laat bestaan dat er 10% alcohol in zit. Smaakt blijft lekker nabranden in de mond en keel.

KyotoLefty (7337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottled. Sweet and spicy, with strong Belgian yeast presence. Nice enough, not up there with the best abts.
