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.

Poured a dark ruby with reddish highlights. Smells roasted malts, sugar cane, caramel, dark red fruits. Tastes sweet malts, but... sour too. Cherries, strawberry, dark fruits in general. Alcohol is present but somehow obscured (despite of the 10abv). Medium carbonated. It gives me idea that it has not hops and a it is a bit watery what gives it a weak character. Being a cheap beer (more than 1euro though) bought at any Albert Heiner, I would say that is reasonable choice for drinking calmly in a fresh chilly night. I didn’t have too much expectations, so not bad at all.

0.5 bottle. Clear, dark crimson color and a medium, off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts, spices, Candi sugar, fruits (most notably bananas). Taste of dark malts, burnt sugar, spices again, fruits, and floral tones. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, malty, sweet, zesty; a touch of alcohol shines through. Overall a very pleasant beer; once again the average score leads me to conclude that the beer must have been different in its infancy, or at least had a few bad years.

MindSlip (15) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2016

Most drinked beer by me, way to cheap here in the Netherlands with being only 1€ and available in almost every supermarket.
Malts, caramel, brown sugar, spices, fruits, banana, plums, slight chocolate.
Dark ruby/brown beer with a slight off-white head
Starts sweet with fruit, banana, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and spicy. Well rounded, long finish with slight alcohol.

Very strong. It has complex and fullbodied taste, with equally sweet and bitter tones. Light spicy aftertaste.

Daanminator (443) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Bier gedronken uit een palmglas. Zeer donker van kleur met kleine schuimkraag. Aroma en smaak wat zoetig. Was er niet zo erg kapot van.

Interested to taste this beer at different ages. At 12 months of age it was a great taste experience. Only small gripe would be the addition of colourant. Looking forward to my next one.

Bottle. Rich malt, toffee, raisin, boozy notes, sweet finish with warming alcohol. Not too impressive for a barley wine, and no idea why they used coloring...
