COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zwaar donker-bier met een rijpe volle zoet-bittere smaak.
Grand Prestige wordt door ons met zorg gebrouwen met de beste ingredinten. Het is n 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.

Zlotta (2603) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
0.3 l bottle, best before 8/2016, probably about two years old. Clear, very dark ruby with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, a bit fruity aroma of caramel, treacle, raisins, prunes and even a slight hint of red wine. Quite sweet, very malty, moderately fruity taste of caramel, treacle, raisins, prunes, blackcurrant and a touch of red wine, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, quite warming, but only minimally alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, almost oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very satisfying, harmonic and well-drinkable, overall a really nice sipper!

TorbenJensen (1478) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2016
The bottle is a work of art. Beautiful half-liter ceramic bottle with champagne stopper. A loud oomph comes when the plug is pulled off followed by a cascade of carbon dioxide which spreads good aroma. The beer is beautifully nut-brown and has a lovely aroma of yeast, rum and some dried fruit. Foam is light brown and in the beginning very foamy, but drops quickly. The taste is rich and very fruity of ripe dark fruit (plums, cherries and grapes), roasted malt with fine taste of burnt caramel and a little dark chocolate and brown sugar. Another rater describes it like drinking velvet, and its actually a really good description of the mouth feeling arises at first sip. One reason is also the soft carbonation which helps to spread all the good flavors across the mouth and keep them long. The alcohol is high and warming. Im usually an impatient rater so my bottle is a 2016 version, which will surely develop much more positively if you save it 4-5 years. Although my bottle is freshly brewed beer it has already developed port wine notes which makes it quite unique, but without doubt it is a beer which advantageously can be stored for many years. No hop bitterness, everything ends in a brilliant way of the fruit. It is an almost complete experience that probably can be totally perfect if you are not as impatient as me and instead stores the bottle dark and cool for a few years.

Paladares (209) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 3, 2016
Botella. Color caf pero clara. Aroma estupendo a puding licorado. Pasas, bombn,... muy agradable. En boca es sensacional. Muy equilibrada con toques pronunciados a pasas y ocultando muy bien su graduacin alcohlica. Un postgusto que se maneja entre un ligero amargor y un toque dulce final. Muy buena.

Kampfar (177) - Osnabrck, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
From 0.30 L bottle (a little aged; one month over bb date). Pours clear and brown with a rapidly disappearing light brown head. Aroma: rum cake, malty, medium alcoholic, slightly yeasty. A bit fruity with overripe dark fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter, with increasing bitterness with time. Again yeast (more as on the aroma) and dark fruit. Additionally some notes of port wine with later in the finish, the alcohol coming to the front. Flat carbonation, medium to full body, slightly dry yet creamy mouthfeel. All in all a very good and intense beer, if I remember correctly, a little more alcoholic than a younger one.

Quaint 500ml pottery bottle - Vintage 2015. Aroma is sweet fruity spicy Christmas cake. Poured dark copper red with ok head and lacing. Taste is sweet rum and raisin with smooth alcoholic finish. Another great "by the fire" beer for the winter months.
