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).

cherry vanilla oak and a nice sourness all greet my palate. dark brown pour with persistent tan head. one of the few beers i could actually feel the heat of the alcohol in if i take too large of a sip. This beer took my palate in so many different directions...gotta retry this one a few times to try to get a better handle on it.

Rocznik 2014. Aromat intensywny, suszone owoce, czerwone wino, beczka, wanilia, przyprawy, karmel, lekka kwaskowatość, alkohol. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, mętne. Piana obfita, drobna, trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. W smaku słodkie, pełne, owoce, suszone owoce, czerwone wino, karmel, toffi, przyprawy, drewno, wanilia, lekka kwaskowatość, delikatnie rozgrzewający alkohol. Goryczka niska, wysycenie niskie. Kapitalne piwo!

Le risque est toujours grand de faire maturer des bières dans des fûts de chêne. Le résultat en est trop souvent un maelstrom gustatif, intense, mais peu appréciable. En partant d’un Bush de Noël, déjà riche en arôme, le pari de la Brasserie Dubuisson était donc grand. La Bush de Nuit présente une teinte cuivrée tirant sur le bronze, avec une effervescence moyenne et une légère mousse la surplombant s’affaissant très rapidement. Au nez, ce qui frappe immédiatement, ce sont les notes acidulées de cerise tirant sur le porto. A la dégustation, l’attaque est directement sur le boisé, très légèrement enrichi par le malt et la levure. En deuxième, vient ensuite l’explosion en bouche. L’acidité sur des notes de cerise et de raisin prend la dominante ; le côté boisé conférant une grande puissance gustative. En final, on atteint des notes marquées de pommeau aux pointes épicées. L’équilibre de cette bière est exceptionnelle. Les 13 % Abv ne se sentant incroyablement pas, la bonne acidité (et non le trop de sucre...ouf!) venant contrebalancer la titrage alcoolique. Le pari est gagné! Merci Dubuisson.

eduardovl (1353) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2016
750ml bottle served in a chalice glass. Pours a cloudy dark amber color forming a small and solid tan head with medium retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass. Strong notes of red fruits, oak and caramel malts in the nose. Candi sugar and slightly sour notes. Hints of honey and alcohol. Taste follows the nose: Sweet and fruit upfront. Strong notes of red fruits, mainly grapes. Strong notes of oak too. Candi sugar and caramel malts. Wine vinegar. Light sourness. Reminds a Flanders Red Ale. Bready style Belgian yeasts. Full body. Medium to low carbonation. Winy and light sour aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Masterpiece.

Une bière grandiose à la robe brune claire, fine mousse. Une nez d’une rare complexité avec à la fois des arômes de fruits rouges, un coté vineux, des épices, un boisé présent mais intégré et une bouche tout aussi impressionnante, de l’ampleur, de la puissance, de la richesse et de l’équilibre et le tout sans excès. Un régal.

Palme (4086) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
A majestic looking 0.75l corked bottle from trade with BelgBeerGeek. This is the 2011 version. It pours a cloudy plum red colored body with a big but somewhat quickly fading and big bubbled off-white head. Smells really Belgian and dark candied sweet. Lots of fruity yeasty tones, a bunch of honey, some alcohol, sour red berries - lots of them actually. Also I get traces of both red wine and vanilla. Smells quite complex and nice. Even if it has had a few years in the bottle it still feels a bit raw and almost brutal. Not that I was expecting a mild or a bitter, but I had thought it would be a bit less in your face. Above average on the carbonation and it has a surprisingly thin oily mouthfeel. Nice red berries, lots of oak tannins, Belgian candy, warming alcohol. Lots of flavor in this, and the barrels has really made an influence. Soft dry autumn leafs, a bit of acidic lingon berries, watered down red wine vinegar and traces of something that’s remaining me of the bitterness in cocoa nibs. Honey also present in the flavor. Lots of things going on here, perhaps even a bit to much, making it a bit all over the place. I’m enjoying it more and more the further down the bottle I get. Thanks for the bottle Vincent! 07.04.2013

bierenjoyer1 (98) - Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2016
750ml bottle, age 2014, from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Dried dark fruits, red wine, rich. Pours medium brown with a slight white foam. Taste of rich thickness but not thick, if you will, again dark fruits, maybe caramel, s bit of red wine dryness, with some oak back notes with Belgian yeasts, some phenolics. The finish is clean. I will buy this beer again.

Muggus69 (2047) - 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!

Amberkleurig bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Intens aroma. Geur van pruimen, vineus, beetje cognac. Licht alcoholisch, diepe volle smaak van kandijsuiker, caramel, eik met lekkere zoete afdronk. Topdrankje.

Pours a dark amber body with a medium head. Nice malty aroma with a fruity feel. Rich and well balanced taste with a nice fizzy fruityness.
