look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

very clear copper body and massive fine head

aroma is dominant alcoholic, dark fruits, and oxidized Madeira notes

Taste is a combination of sweet, sour and Rum that is rather harsh

Body is medium to heavy, oily and has fine carbonation

lots of rather harsh alcohol and still quite flat, would probably need more aging but already tastes and smells oxidized. Not nice.

Nice fully head, what will fade away in a couple of minutes, very good almost black colour. But when you look good, a pure dark ruby colour is in it classy beer of Hertog Jan.

This Grand Prestige, have a red fruit like cherry smell, also some redwine/port elements in it. Roasted barley, and hints of syrup.

a Wonderful texture of freshness brings this beer. With the alcohol of 10%, it is a very good drinkable beer. Indeed again the red fruits as cherry and berries are here as also sugary and caramel influences.

a Surely a good Grand Prestige from the masterbrewers of Hertog Jan.

I am not really sure how feel about this beers style category. Although it wasn’t bad I don’t know if I would call it a Belgian style. Maybe we should give the Dutch their own category. It was probably my favorite Hertog Jan. Very nice looking. Nice dark head and lace with a brown-red tint. The body was dark brown amber. There was cloudy carbonation haze at first that died down to nothing. The aroma was mild but chocolate roasted malt did dominate over the other esters. The flavor was very roasty at first with a lot of coffee and chocolate tones. The taste is earthy at the end. It has more of a medium mouthfeel and the alcohol in not that apparent.
