COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Grand Cru is a dark chestnut-colored Belgian-style Ale with vibrant fermentation aromas of fruity esters and spicy phenols. A sweet caramel malt, raisin, and plum-like character combines with the complex fermentation profile of our Belgian yeast strain and hints of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Its full body and velvety mouthfeel make for a slow and satisfying drinking experience. Grand Cru is meant to be savored and will age nicely.

biilz (2141) - SPAIN - FEB 3, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2020 Аромат классический для Бельгии и этого стиля, он очень пряный, гвоздика, перец и прочие, немного темных фруктов, умеренный солод с нотками шоколада, хлеба и карамели. Цвет не полностью темный, скорее темно коричневый, пенка средняя но держится долго. Вкус тоже хороший, очень сбалансирован. Прежде всего темные фрукты, затем в теле ( кстати не сильно плотный для таких градусов ) есть нотки тех же пряностей. Послевкусие более дрожжевое, уже нотки шоколада и карамели, но без приторности, снова очень сбалансированно. Могут быть нотки от алкоголя. В целом просто отличный эль в стиле.

3.8
beer-yum (3701) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2020 Spicy malt aroma in a murky brown pour. Smooth laid back body with hints of spicy fruit and bread before a lovely lingering finish. No hint of the strength - which makes it dangerously delicious.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2020 Bottle. A- Malty, bread dough, slightly fruity, caramel. A- Copper color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Malty, fruit cake, caramel, mild booze. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- 5 years old. Pretty basic if you ask me. Not complex and really just bready malt and caramel. Wonder if this was better back in the day. I sure was not impressed.
