COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissonís 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 NoŽl, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

tmrmwel (1003) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle, vintage 2010. Pours hazy dark golden with sediments, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and kandi, as well as sweet fruity notes of canned cherries with honey and heathery spices. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, as well as fruity yeast with some sour notes of apples and cherries finishing off with vanilla and oak barrels. Well hidden alcohol.

txspartan (968) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Very complex flavours and aromas. The red fruits are right there at the onset. The alcohol burn is significant. Flavours of spices linger quite some time.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle from the 2008 vintage. Pours light copper colored with small chunks and a nice small, dense, creamy and lasting off white head. Aromas of wood, caramel, berries, alcohol (surprisingly little), cider vinegar, christmas spices and candi sugar. Warming alcohol in the flavor and with notes of sweet malty caramel, tart wood and a rather dry finish.. Excellent beer!

Joakgust (918) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2012
Celebrating my SWMBOís new job! Bottle, 75cl - Semi hazy red amber beer with a large frothy beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of dried fruits, walnuts, hazelnuts, port wine, caramel, coffee and toffee. Flavor is fruity with notes of oranges, honey, caramel, candy, cola, chocolate and nutmeg. A complete explosion of aromas and flavors. Insanely enjoyable! Iím going to have sex after this.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2010
[Bottle] shared by tytoanderso. Pours cloudy brown with a medium beige head. HUGE vinous nose, barrel tannin, red grapes and other dark fruits, caramel, raisins, and alcohol. Flavor is thick, with lots of tannin, lots of wine character, alcohol is evident, a touch of nail polish remover, and caramel. The nose really carries this beer.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2013
Vilken jävla fullträff. Tvekade länge om det skulle vara värt 13 euro utan att ha en aning om vad det här är. Sötma, syra, komplexitet, fat, vinös. Fantastisk. Synd att jag inte har mer plats i resväskan. Det blir inte mycket bättre än så här. Perfektion och världsklass 2012. Rerate: 2009. Vad har hänt? Inte alls som jag minns den. Nästan lite jobbig. Kan det vara att den inte mår bra av lagringen kanske? Eller variation mellan årgångarna möjligen

dalekliz (878) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle, at WeeHeavySDs 2000 rating party, thanks to toncatcher! Pours a hazy amber-brown with a small tan head. Very malty sour aroma, with a hint of sweeter fruits and sugar, and a bit of funky spice. Taste is quite sweet, of malt, dark fruits, brown sugar, spices, and a hint of sour funk. Lingering crisp sweet and sour. Nice carbonation. Very tasty.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAR 25, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 750ml bottle, 2008, with a huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for the chance to try this! Pours a hazy light amber with a moderate off-white cap. On first smell I can already tell I wonít be able to adequately describe what Iím experiencing here, and tasting it only drives that point home. Wow, excellent, excellent stuff, even though I have no ability to capture my thoughts on this one, so Iím not going to try. To call it impressive is an understatement, thanks again Brad, and apologies for an all but worthless rating to actually describe my experience.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2009
Reddish amber with a dense head. Cherry, wood and grapes in the aroma, with very vineous flavours, wood, tart and basement. Highly interesting to begin with - but it gets a bit too much in the long run.

Hazy amber with a flat off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, sugar and fruit. Flavour is sweet with brown sugar, caramel, nuts and a little raisin.
