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.

COMRADEJOSH (318) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Dark black in appearance with almost no carbonation. Strong alcohol taste that overwhelms everything else for me. Probably good for its style but hard for me to judge.

SimonBlok (1) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015 does not count
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 (5299) - 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.

dreamer (152) - PORTUGAL - JUN 5, 2015
[50cl thanks to ruigo] Dark reddish brown color, with a small tan head. Medium carbonation full body and creamy texture. Aroma is spicy, plums, malt, red berries, caramel. Taste is bitter, spicy, sweet, with alcohol too much present... yes, it has 10%, but cold be more disguised... Aftertaste is astringent, and long sweet.

drjoeng (160) - - JUN 3, 2015
10% ABV Wheaty nose that blooms and broadens developing aromatics of plum, dried honey dates and lilies. Flat to medium head. Ebony hued; dark caramel when held up to the light. A very inviting and promising color for a quad. The first mouthfeel is subtly carbonated and hefty. The syrupy caramelized flavors are nicely rounded off resulting in a finish that is balanced without the harsh bitterness of burnt toast or immature hops. Heavy. Should be enjoyed slowly and sipped Definitely to be had ice cold, but develops interesting fruity dimensions after being allowed to oxidize and breathe a little at room temperature. Chalice drinking vessel is perfect.

vidmidia (78) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 30, 2015
Marrom, quase opaca. Espuma rala de curta duração. Aroma e sabor de mel, ameixas, caramelo e café, tendo alguma acidez no sabor. Adocicada, álcool perceptível. Retrogosto ácido de final alcoólico.

The style of this beer is a barley wine instead of a quadrupel according tot the bottle aroma faint color Ruby dark, little foam and clear taste alcohol, relatively full some caramel missing some body, intensity and complexity it a fine drink though and i will certainty buy it again
