COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zwaar donker-bier met een rijpe volle zoet-bittere smaak.
Grand Prestige wordt door ons met zorg gebrouwen met de beste ingrediŽnten. Het is ťťn 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.

Dark ruby in color, low level of CO2, light amber head, kind of mousse. Complex dark fruits, raisins, fog, grapes, plums, in aroma and flavor. Something winy. Hop aroma, flavor and bitterness is very low. It has 10% alcohol but it is not extreme. Love this beer, it has drinkability an it is complex. Will have this Quad again.

Sweet and yeasty beer, with some fruits and herbs. Used to drink this before I became obsessed with craft beer.

Hertog Janís finest. Full flavour, nice "thick" taste Not the best quadrupel, but always a delight to drink.

ABT_S54 (124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
50cl stone bottle with cork served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark garnet colour with no head and carbonation being equally non-existent. There is little aroma other than rich fruits and cake notes. The mouthfeel is excellent (quite meaty) and the taste is exceptionally rich with very sweet notes. Very little hoppiness almost all malt, dried fruits and bread. The most cakelike beer I have tried in fact a perfect partner to a rich fruit cake.

kidmartinek (3539) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Dirty dark brown color, almost black. Pours with a 1 inch head that settles to little more than a film before it can be enjoyed. Draws down clean and clear. Smells like bitter barley malt syrup and tastes the same with a smooth body and little to no bite or hint of alcohol. Some fruit peel, like apple on the finish. So, iíll give you that itís smooth but not that its good. Try an American barley wine if you want something less sweet.

DJoer (644) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Light mokka coloured head, black slightly brown colour, sweet fruity strawberry caramel like, a bit like a candy stick hints, smell, warm low carbonation medium bitter wine like a soft sweet fruity touch very delicate despite itís % of alcohol, a bit creamy in the start and a tintling after feeling

PotjeBier (1596) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2014
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. Aromaís: sweet malts, red fruit, sugarry. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty. Medium bodied. Flavor lingers, but no new flavors.

bonkiedeaap (242) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
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.
