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.

bottle - Pours crystal clear, says the commercial description? hah... no, I poured slowly and there was no way this ale was going to come out crystal clear. Pours a murky brown with a thin head, almost nonexistent head. It has a very pleasant, assertive aroma of yeast, malt, and dark fruit. It tastes very sweet. There’s plenty of malts and candi sugar in there. The yeast comes through as well as some mild dark fruit notes. The high abv is masked by the sweetness. I wouldn’t have known it was 10% if I hadn’t read the bottle first. The finish is smooth and dry. This is another high quality ale from Alesmith.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a slight head fading quickly. Aroma of vanilla, brown sugar and sweet plum. Layers of flavor. Surprisingly pleasant and intriguing on the palate. It is worth seeking out since it is not easy to find.

A ruby pour, with alot of Fruitiness, and malt. An older sample, so I’m sure it has mellowed abit, Caramel, hints of vanilla on the tongue. Always a good brew!

Tak til Martin for at dele dette forfærdelige produkt med os som var på Ølbaren den sommeraften.
Det er tanken der tæller.
Kastanje-rød med et lille lyst skum.
En slikbutik uden lige, tørrede frugter og der gik jeg "kløjs" i den.
Fylder alt for meget, jeg giver op.

750ml. Clear ruby color with no head at all. No carbonation either. Smells of dried fruit with sweet malty taste. Medium alcohol finish.

Bottle. Poured a dark amber color with no head whatsoever. Aroma is malts, vanilla, chocolate, alcohol, caramel, and spice. Flavor is very strong, full of alcohol and not really anything else to balance it out. Tastes much like a mixed cocktail to me. Way too sweet for my liking, tastes like candy. I am not very keen of this beer.

Tasting at Immy’s. From 750. Golden orange pour. Nose has an abundance of figs, plums, brown sugar. Flavor follows. Well done.

Bottle. Thanx to Engelsmann. Ruby colour with a small off-white head. Dark fruits, caramel aroma and a sweet fruity, light alcoholic taste. Medium to full body with a sweet warming alcoholic finish.
