Hertog Jan Grand Prestige (500ml Bottle)
Heavy dark beer with a ripe full sweet-bitter taste.
Grand Prestige is carefully brewed with the best ingredients. It is one of the heaviest specialty beers in the Netherlands. Grand Prestige is a special beer, also known as "barley wine". It also has many characteristics in common with a good wine, such as the full, ripe taste. When you take the time for your Grand Prestige, you can enjoy the full creamy head, smell the hops and clearly distinguish between sweet and bitter. The taste and the smell need the peace to develop. So it is best to keep Grand Prestige for a while, until you have the opportunity to sit down in front of it.
Abt, or quadrupel, is the name given to ultra-strong Trappist and abbey ales. The name Abt was pioneered to describe Westvleteren and the beer that would become St. Bernardus. Quadrupel was pioneered by La Trappe. Abts are the darker of the two, with more rich, deep fruity notes. Quads are paler, with corresponding peachy notes. Neither have much in the way of hop, and both are very strong and malty. Though both are bottle-conditioned, abts trend more towards yeastiness. Alcohol is very high (10+% abv) for both.
