COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grand Prestige is a classic recipe from our friends at Hertog Jan in the Netherlands. We brewed this beer to their specifications here in Chicago, but we added a new depth to the flavor by barrel aging it in a combination of first and second use bourbon barrels. Two different labels exist: a Goose Island Grand Prestige for the US and a Hertog Jan Vatgerijpt series for Europe.

Bottle at the Goose Island Blocktoberfest in London, dark mahogany with a white crema, the usual Bourbon vanilla and musty wood nose, lighter on the palate than BCBS, touches of grain and then a warm nutty alcohol bite, ending in a liquorice bitter finish.

Fles gedeeld door TomHendriksen en gedronken met Benzai en Roelzie. Roodbruin helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is rokerig, houtig en caramelachtig. Smaak is zoet, fruitig en houtig. Nasmaak is iets hoppig.

Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle @ tasting shared by TomHendriksen. Nice amber brown color, average sized beige head. Aroma is malts, dark malts, slight vanilla, sweetness, bourbon. Taste malts, dark malts, vanilla, bourbon, some hints of bourbon county stout indeed? I thought I got a clear touch of it. Quite nice anyway. Well done.

Fles gedeeld met Roelzie1986, Inoven en Benzai. Het is een lekker redelijk donker bruin bier met weinig schuim. Het heeft een lekkere bourbon smaak met hints van eiken en Stout. Erg goed te drinken.

tightslice (1435) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is vanilla extract, milk chocolate, chocolate Easter candies, chalky dark fruit, cocoa. Taste is thin and slightly tangy, mild chocolate with light sugary syrups. Underwhelming.

markducommun (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Lightly clouded ruby mahogany. Minimal tan head. Butterscotch, dried candied fruits, raisins, currants. Light clove and banana. Quite a bit of bourbon and vanilla. Very sweet, decently spicy. Heavier, quite oily. Lots of alcohol. Long finish. Not much carbonation. Quite good.

wxman (1848) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2017
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma is molasses and raisins. Taste is quite sweet roasted malt, honey, molasses, dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate. This brew is very complex, but so well balanced. All these flavors dance as one.

4.2

Geweldige geur van port en hout! Smaak iets minder sterk maar ook zeer goed. Iets meer niet had gemogen. Maar geslaagd experiment!
