Alesmith: Grand Cru 10.6% [750ml]
They say "Grand Cru is a dark chestnut-coloured Belgian-style Ale with vibrant fermentation aromas of fruity esters and spicy phenols. The sweet caramel malt, raisin, and plum-like character combines with the complex fermentation profile of our Belgian yeast strain and hints of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Its full body and velvety mouthfeel make for a slow and satisfying drinking experience."
We say "Grand Cru is a beer to be savoured and will age nicely, this beer is ideal paired with roasted main dishes of pork & duck, or the dark fruity characters of plum make it great for the dessert course; particularly cheese! Bronze awarded at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival this beer is a firm favourite with tastes of sweet stoned fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel malt and a boozy tickle."
