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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Donkerbruin, bijna zwart, zoet bier dat gemakkelijk wegdrinkt. Heeft veel weg van de goede quadrupels, maar is toch wel iets minder dan bijvoorbeeld een St. Bernardus, Westvleteren, Rochefort of La Trappe.

Bottle t home. Pours clear dark red amber with a brown hue and a small light beige head. Nutty aroma, burnt caramel. Overly sweet body, high on alcohol, no real bitterness. Taste is dried raisins and dates. Nothing specual.

Corked 500mL ceramic bottle BRonze body, minimal head. Good nose - prunes, dates, rich toffee, brandy. Full body, syrupy smooth, thick, creamy. Sweet rich dark malts & sugars on the body, dried fruits, some booze. Substantial, pretty decent.

Bottle at home, 3 years after expiration date. Dark brown with off-white foam. Nose: caramel, nuts, alcohol, licorice and coconut. Body is medium with lively cabonation, but strong in alcohol. Taste is quite sweet with a light bitter finish.

77ships (5403) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
300 ml. bottle @ Café Kandinsky. Appearance is dark wood, brown, small mocha. Nose is thick wood, dark fruits mixed with liquorish, sweetish liquorish, light varnish but not in an unpleasant way,… Taste is thick wood, sweet molasses, syrupy, faint cherry, dark red fruit syrup, spices, light alcohol,… Spirit body,… I get why this is an old school classic. I rather liked it.
