COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuisson’s 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 Noël, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

Probably the most generous bottle ever shared with me. Nasty thanks to nbutler11. One hell of a 1000 to be sure. Nose of tart grapes, tannins, light wood character, sweet mold and candi sugar. Color is a dark purpleish brown. Flavor was a bit overrun by the tannin, or maybe the wood had some bacteria in it - more tart than I think they were aiming for, especially if they started with a Belgian Xmas ale. A nice even wood presence though, even if the grains and spice were marred.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Bouteille. Bière trouble de couleur ruby orangée avec une fine mousse beige crémeuse affichant une bonne tenue ainsi qu’une colonne de fine bulles au centre du verre. Au nez, elle exprime des notes de cerises sûres, de fruits rouges, de raisins, de bois, de malt sucré et d’alcool. En bouche, le bois est plus présent et est accompagné d’un bouquet de petits fruits (griottes, framboises, mûres) ainsi que de raisins secs, de figues ainsi que d’une pointe d’épices, le tout supporté par une bonne base de malt bien sucré et qui se termine par une belle pointe d’alcool. Tout y est en subtilité et en équilibre. Elle est légèrement crémeuse et agrémentée de fines bulles. Une grande bière.

tmrmwel (1058) - 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.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
C&PLYFOTD: Bottle, courtesy miketd. Copper clear pour, thick white head and very thick lacing. Rich tart nose, some berries and dry oak, with vanilla and unique spices. Very funky and complex flavors, with various spices and a delicious finish. Full-bodied, well-carbonated and the ABV is nowhere to be found. Very drinkable.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Aroma of mustard, dust, caramel, wood, and wine. Tastes if caramel, brown sugar, red wine, mustard, and is a bit sours (surprised it’s not called so on the site). Finishes woody, malty, with more vanilla than expected, and a subtle sourness. Medium to full bodied, creamy and high carbonation. This was quite good! Subtle sourness, and much less medicinal than the regular Bush/Scaldis de Noel.

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.

Joakgust (960) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2012
Celebrating my SWMBO’s 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! I’m going to have sex after this.

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!

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.

dalekliz (882) - 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.
