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, medium bodied with strong malts. Alcohol noticeable but not overly so. There’s better beers in this genre.

wedgie9 (1937) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2014
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a bottle. Pours clear auburn with a thin beige head that leaves very thin lace. The nose is sweet, very toasted malty, with some raisin and caramel. The flavor is sweet caramel malt with toasted bread and some raisin, plenty of alcoholic heat. The body is full with lively, stinging carbonation, and a long raisin and lightly nutty caramel finish.

Kleurplaatje (9) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
Bottled in November 2013, drunk mid-September 2014. 50cl bottle poured into tulip glass. Dark brown beer with minimal to absent head. Pretty low carbonation and slightly creamy texture. Aromas of chocolate, brown sugar, bit of oak, dried fruits and caramel are present. Smells quite loveable actually. Taste is pretty sweet and lightly bitter. Bit warmish in the aftertaste, which lasts not that long. It is mainly the sweetness that survives. Overall, the beer suprised me in a positive way. It is quite nice to drink, but maybe a bit too sweet and less ’alcoholic’ in the aftertaste. Nevertheless, the beer is pretty well-balanced. I wouldn’t hesitate to drink it another day.

Icedwarf (325) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en hoppig met sporen van chokolade, caramel, drop en anijs. Een erg goed en smakelijk bier wat lang blijft hangen. Gedronken van de tap op terras van café Non Plus Ultra in Woensdrecht.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
30cl bottle, pours a dark red with a lasting fine tan head. Nose is burnt caramel, tart red fruit and a touch of earthy wood, body is rich and syrupy at first, swiftly turning dry-bitter and faintly tart with plum notes. An alcohol warmth joins lingering dry-bitterness and candy sugar in the finish.

Alengrin (1740) - 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.

kerenmk (2377) - 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.
