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.

McWorta (575) - - NOV 2, 2012
dark amber, ruby red colour with a fading bit tan head. On the nose aromas of ripe banana, plumb and caramel, some earthy notes develop. Nice ripe fruit flavours, with light fizzyness and an oily texture, chewy, full bodied beer. Medium to heavy sweetness. Finish is long and balanced.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby brown with a tan head. Aroma: candy sugar, spices, cherries. Taste: brown sugar, cherries, chocolate, raisins, spices, dough, light alcohol. Sweet, full bodied, slick mouthfeel, slight sourness in the finish.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Classic Dutch ’massive ale’, dark, with malty profile, candied fruits, explicitly sweet taste, bit cloying even, yeasty, agreeable spicy notes, quite complex, warming finish. I liked this years ago but I’m not sure how it evolved since then, viewing the fact that Arcense is owned by AB InBev - time for a re-rate.

Mooi prestige bier van hertog jan. Is van de tap veel beter dan van de fles. Zoet, hoppig en sterk.

Dark beer with a creamy head that quickly disapears. Low carbonation. Taste is caramel, fruity, some cherry, small bitternes. Good sticky mouth feel.

kerenmk (2299) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks vipinvelp. Clear brown with quickly dissolving beige ring. Malt, some dark fruit and a little spice aroma, but mainly malt. Heavy, sweet and a little fruity finish, carbonated.

MelvinKalksma (10) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
One of the, if not the, best beers I’ve ever tasted in my life. Dark and sweet beer with tastes of caramel.

aleksander9 (401) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2014
Deep red with small tan head. Aroma is raisins, red fruit, caramel, vanilla and spice. Slick, fruity and sticky palate with low carbonation. Aftertaste is round red fruit, caramel, floral, cherry and lingering spicy alcohol. Overall: Well done! Its like Cuvee van de keizers younger brother. I especially liked the low carbonation.

fkoolen (271) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Dark brown colour, off-white head that quickly disappears. Nose and taste are big on sweet and dried fruits (figs, dates, raisins), vanilla and roasted malts with some coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Wine-like aftertaste: fruity, a bit acidic and bitter and dry. Soft and oily mouthfeel, low carbonation, good body (but could be a bit bolder).

Calisky (613) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 19, 2014
Couleur cuivrée, legere mousse blanche. Nez fruité et caramel. Gout fruits noirs, figues, notes d’alcool. Fin rapide. Plus chère que les meilleures quadrupel, mais qd meme pas a leur niveau.

laiti (5635) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
30 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam, BBE 12/2015
Aroma is sweet with raisins, dark fruits and syrupy tones. Also some pear esthers. Flavour is sweet with lots of raisins, brown sugar and ripe fruits. Also alcohol is present, but it mostly just balances (or tries to) the sweetness. Both aroma and flavour remind me of La Trappe Quad – this is just more sweet. Sweet all the way.
