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.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a nice head, short duration. Heavy aroma of spices, sweet banan, plums and vanilla notes. Taste is good and well rounded with spices and some alcohol. Long good finish.

yespr (30766) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2007
30 cL bottle, thanks to Grovlam. Pours amber with a lacing light brown head. Herbal and berry fruity aroma, slight alcohol note. Sweet and alcohol flavour, slight herbal too. Ends slight malty, alcohol warming. Slight acidic to citric fruityness. Wins something for every sip but is still slightly too alcoholic for my liking.

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of plums and other fruits. The color is a deep red and it has an OK but fast disappearing head. The flavor is a soft rounded sweet, fruit rich, complex one. Ending on a fruit rich dryness after a middle with a good sweetness. A fantastic beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Dark, slightly reddish brown and hazy with a small head. Malty and fruity flavours with notes of figs and dates. Sweetish yes, but not cloying. Very heavy and potent - to be enjoyed in small quantities! Comes close to some of the best Belgian abbey ales. The brewery calls this a Barley Wine - gerstewijn. 250802

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled. Deep ruby red colour, small beige head. Aroma is toffee, licorice and some hints of alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, fruits, spices, licorice and some mild yeast. Wellbalanced, quite pleasant for being this strong.

omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2008
<i<Bottled. Clear ruby, small creamy head. Raisiny madeira aroma. Sweet and sticky with roasty, chewy malt covered by some bubblegum esters and raspberry brandy. Towards the finish without bitterness it akll drowns in sweetness. More power than depth.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark beer. Rich toffee malt. Hint of chocolate. Smooth and sumptuos. Lingering malt finish. Very nice.

2012-11-08, bottle at Locus Publicus, Rotterdam, 7-5-7-3-15=37
Dark mahogany color, nice red reflex, generous creamy head. Mild aroma of malt caramel and smoke. Good malty flavor, caramel, medium mellow sweetness, light bitterness. A bit nutty.
Not complex but enjoyable.

2002-09-12, bottle conditioned, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Dark brown, wonderful creamy head, generous. Nice malt aroma, deep; roasted malt, chocolate, some liquorice, alcohol. Really strong flavour, mouthfilling, maybe too much alcohol; a lot of malt, some sweetness, a reasonable taste of roasted barley, some liquorice. Not complex, just strong character. Reasonable bitterness, the minimum for this strength and malt.
Not my top beer, but maybe my Dutch favourite.
