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.

High alcohol percentage, great full taste, must be poured into the original Geand prestige glass. One of THE BEST beers in the world!

I’ve been in the beer basement of Hertog Jan today in Arcen. Had a 2013 sample of the final 75cl bottle, pretty ok but nothing impressive. However, we had the great opportunity to share a bottle of 2005 that has been in the basement for so long. I already heard that the taste would be like a wine/port and so it was. Smelled just like a red wine, very warm and strong! Tasted, WONDERFUL, top of the bill for sure. There’s definately a good signature of beer in there, but it’s transformated into a more full, warm red winey flavour. If this would be a freshly beer that was easy to get, I think it would be leading the scores of this whole website (even better than rochefort, st bernardus abt, rochefort 10 which I’ve tasted multiple times). So if you can get this somewhere, take a couple of bottles and hold it for at least 5-10 years. I will never forget this beer!

This is probably the most interesting beer I’ve ever had. Even though it’s not an IPA. :D

This beer brings a smile to my face ! Full flavour, a little sweet and a nice bitterness. Makes you wanna sit back, relax and think about happy things.

Flavourful and dynamic. Slightly flat compared to Belgians but still a very worthy experience.

50 cl. keramik flaske. 10 %. Mørk mahogni farvet øl. Klasseøl. Virlkelig et godt bekendtskab, smager fantastisk, en af de bedste øl, jeg har fået i år.

Super lekker, top bier met de echte Hertog Jan smaak. Vooral lekker als het buiten al wat kouder is

Interested to taste this beer at different ages. At 12 months of age it was a great taste experience. Only small gripe would be the addition of colourant. Looking forward to my next one.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2015 Rating reflects fairly aged (> 5 years) sample. Dark brown coloured, small brown head. Very complex nose, vinous, roasted malts, raisins, even port-notes. Sweet but complex flavour, liqourice, malts. Lasting finish. Reminiscent of Cuvee van de Keizer Blauw. Perhaps a bit overly sweet and one dimensional when fresh, but when aged this beer is absolutely magnificent. Additional note: appears to peak at 5 years (0.75L bottle stored at 12C).
