COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissons renowned Scaldis Prestige, Scaldis Prestige de Nuits is aged in oak barrels for six months. But Prestige de Nuits is made of Scaldis Noel aged in Bourgogne barrels from the world famous "Nuits St. Georges" vineyard. The result is an ale of extraordinary complexity and depth.

Bush de Nol, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

Muggus69 (2018) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2016
750mL corked & caged bottle from Beer Cartel. It must be said - this beer has majesty before even sampling - an amazing bottle, a placard full on info, an just amazing appearance before a deep copper body is presented. Aroma exudes ripe fruits, dried fruits, burnt caramels, typical phenolic & esters! Body is unbelivably strong but works so well - wow!

Aroma of brown sugar, nougat, brandied fruit and sour cherries. Appearance was ruddy brown with tan head. Flavor matched the nose, but with lots of oak notes; the sourness imparted by the barrels was more apparent upon warming, and was also quite boozy. Palate was fizzy and bubbly. A pleasure to drink, just not everyday.

750mL bottle, courtesy of toncatcher at WeeHeavy’s 2000th tasting. Thanks, Dennis! Higher carbonation. Amber color. Some alcohol in the nose. Somewhere between fresh pannepot and westy. Slightly sweet. Very good, but marginally a top 50.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Courtesy miketd. Pours a dark caramel brown, with a small off white head. Really dug the nose. Lots of swet tannic fruits, oak, and malts. A little vinuous as well. the flavor was good, but not as tempting as the aroma. Pretty tart and sour for a belgian strong Ale. The vinuous characters really show up and lots of sweet tart fruits and dark malts are evident for some balance. Very tasty brew, and not what I was expecting.

Abio (1845) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2011
500th Belgian beer. 2009 bottle. Reddish brown with a small to medium head. Fruity wooden and alcohol smell. Light sour wooden fruity, grapes, Raisins, taste. A bit wines taste, not complete my thing, but can understand others like it.

GranvilleTim (1840) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Found this tasty beer in the local bargain bin for $10. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is fruity and oak. Taste is fruity, oak, light carbonation, dry aftertaste. So good, so tasty. The fruit taste has wine characteristics. 13 % alc. well hidden, but felt by the end of the drink.

BOTTLE 75 CL. Clear red-brown, small head. Quite close to the original Prestige - both aroma and the taste have mild acetic notes, oxidized wine and enough malts to balance. A bit of alcohol just spices the things up. Very nice.
