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).

It is red-brown (most red) with a small head. Wow, the aroma sweeps me off my feet. It is vinous with notes of fruits (dark and lighter ones), a light sourness and vinegar (like in the very best sour beers), a light sweetness, malt and raisin. The flavour has sweetness and a pleasant sourness, notes of wood, red wine, fruit, raisin, figs, grapes, malt, caramel and light citrus. The balance is unique, this clearly is one of the very best Belgian beers I have had.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Bottle from the Otown throwdown. miketd rocks and rolls. Hell yeah this is good shit. Amber/toffee color pour wtih a small light head. Aroma is yeasty, malty, fruity, vanilla, wood, and some light funky notes. Flavor is great. Sweet and tart mix wonderfully here. The red wine notes are in harmony with the sweet fruits, caramel and malt. Nice, damn damn nice!

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 Bottle... C&P’sLYFO Throwdown... Cloudy, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a bit muted, but I’m able to pull pleasant, toasted notes of caramel, wood and red wine out of the glass. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet, boozy, caramel flavor with sufficient bitterness to prevent it from being cloying. Additional, vinous notations of red wine and medium sherry. The lengthy, lightly bitter, mildly boozy finish dries out at the very end. Big thanks to miketd for bringing this beer to the Throwdown! Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. A bit unclear amber colored brew, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, lots of alcohol, some sourness, spicy as well. Pretty sharp and spicy. Fizzy carbonation, medium body. Not my thing.

hopdog (9618) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2009
750ml, expensive as_, bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of wood, grapes, cherries, oak, vinous, and slightly funky. My 6.5 year old wanted to smell it and without prompting told me it smelled like grapes. Tastes of cherries, oaky/woodiness, vanilla, caramel, and some fruitiness. Alcohol content well hidden with a nice smooth and easy to drink body.

Finished a bomber of this fine unique beverage, in the very glass it was designed for. Thanks for sendng both BelgBeerGeek. Pours a blackish cognac coloured body with an initially notion only of a head. The aroma is rich wine (it was aged in such for 6 months), and the taste is secondary to this Belgian ale, with some chocolate. Special though not extraordinary special.Above average mouthfeel.

750mL celebrating my best friend’s first house buy and my 5400th rating. Pours hazy deep red, fizzing out larger beige foam. Almost oud brune wine barrel in the nose with sharp acid cutting head retention. Decent bourbon or rich oak nose but sharper red wine barrel funk. Taste is still on the sweeter side, but there is mild oak spice and red wine blackberry flavor. The sweet tomato and near bourbon character is never overpowering. Palate is effervescent, mild warming alcohol, cinnamon spice. Mild lactic balance. Really good. The real deal.

Bouteille: Amber coloured, some floaties visible, stable and lacy off-white head, very complex nose: wood, bretttg, toasted malt with fruity-vinous traces;solid sweet-bitter flavour and full bdied; lingering dry bretty-woody finish, sweet fruits again detectable. What a fine stuff…

Rune (9067) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
750ml bottle shared with the Oslo guys at Bier Central. Dark amber body topped by a filmy layer. Rich aroma with tart fruits, raisin and dusty hops. Delicious taste of dried fruits, apples and spiced malts on an oaky backbone. Very dry ending. Solid, but integrated, alcohol warmth. A pleasure to drink a beer like this (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

Bottle 750ml vintage 2011
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, wood, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm, fruity and vinous finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
