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).

[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.

Bottle acquired via trade with RCL and opened for ajm’s 1000+ affair. Pours garnet in color with a crisp white head. Smells of mineral and funk. Tastes of clovers, almonds, grapes, and WOOD. A bit of a dissapointment, actually -- especially for the price tag.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 3, 2010
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.

RichardGretton (4372) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a fizzy body. The aroma is deeply fruity and nicely spiced, and the flavour is vinous and spiced with a bitterish finish. Overall a nice rich and vinous beer.

eaglefan538 (2917) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle enjoyed at the NSSRQSOSLT, 1/10! Thanks to Robert, not sure? Pour was burgundy brown, weak aged head, faint lacing. The aroma was sweet dark fruits, oak, vinous, spices. Flavor featured dark sweet fruits (cherries, plums, dates?), faint oak, vinous elements, some tannins, and some spicing. Other miscellaneous notes of caramel and nuts too? Lot was going on for sure in this one. The wine elements could have been a tad stronger! Enjoyable. The mouthfeel was full, light on carbonation, but not in a detracting way.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle. Hazy reddish brown with an off-white head. The aroma is complex with notes of tart fruits, vinous barrel notes, grass and malts. The flavor is mildly acidic with notes of sweet caramel malts, tart and vinous fruits, oak barrel and hints of vanilla. Overall, very vinous character. Ends dry and "oaky" with a hint of sweet alcohol and some spices. Medium body and easy on the palate. Very enjoyable. Elegant composition with an impressive wine barrel character.

MrGGen (316) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2010
Versa color ambra o arancio con una poca schiuma cremosa. Al naso e in bocca è di lievito, arancia, prugne, fichi, alcool, caramello, legno, vino rosso e noci. Entrambi agrodolce in modo equilibrato. Corposa, con un mezzo di carbonatazione bassa. Molto vinosa, maturata e complessa. Adorabile!

leaparsons (8641) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown and red with a small head. Aromas are toffee and spices with oranges. Floral with fruity sweets. Peppery alcohol. Flavours are sweet spiced oranges with burnt toffee malts. Vinous red wine character. Strong but not aggressive alcohol. A bit unbalanced but still good

BelgianBeerGal (3302) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Traded bottle from Tyler. Since I traded for this it’s not like I REALLY paid for it...kinda like using a credit card right? Pours a murky brown colour with orange highlights. Very short off-white head that dissolves into a film. Just a little lacing and sheen along the edges. Tart aroma that includes wood, clean alcohol, and sour cherries. The flavour is just amazing. Sour notes, tart notes, dark fruit, a little wine gum, plus some warmth from the 13 ABV. Quick, clean finish. Well done and unique
