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 with MF666 because we can take it. Cuvée Spéciale 2009. Hazy brown with a small off white head. Sour berries in the nose. Also berries in the flavour, wood, musty, light barnyard. Some light brown sugar and tobacco, pepper. Medium body, light/medium acidic and medium sweet. Carries the alcohol really well even though it feels pretty light bodied. Interesting beer for sure, but also a bit hefty.

Found this tasty beer in the local bargain bin for $10. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is fruity and oak. Taste is fruity, oak, light carbonation, dry aftertaste. So good, so tasty. The fruit taste has wine characteristics. 13 % alc. well hidden, but felt by the end of the drink.

KoNrRiI (727) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2015
0.75 bottle. Very dark brown color and a reddish, tanned, medium-sized head of good retention. Aroma of dark fruits, delicate malts, some chocolate, and a tad of alcohol. Very sweet taste of dark fruits, some caramel, earth, and various nuts. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is full of dark fruits, nuts, raisins, a lot of earthy tones, and some spices; it tends to stick up the throat. Overall a great beer, not subtle in any manner but full of character - though this lack of subtlety also brings some unwanted alcoholic tastes.

veceo (824) - CROATIA - JAN 25, 2015
Cloudy brown color, big off white head. Aroma has red wine, wood, malts and some sour notes, I’m not really impressed with that. Taste was, however, awesome. Very fruity, lots of caramel, yeast, malts, oak, touches of chocolate. Mainly sweet, but with some sour notes. Smooth and very complex beer. Body is full, and carbonation is very lively. Awesome.

HammerTroll (799) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 19, 2015
Extremely cloudy dark brown color with floaters, huge off-white head, but kind of thin so it drops to small sized one really fast. Aroma is extremely sour, wine-ish, some wood barrel and caramel. Boozy kick, medium to heavy sweet taste, caramel, dark fruits, barrel, spices, malt and yeast. Smooth caramel sweet finish. Full body, creamy and thick texture, soft carbonation. Well balanced and really complex one, very nice.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Amber/Ruby with a quickly dissapating off white head. Aroma is oaky, light wine, malty, plums, dried apricots. Taste is red wine upfront, followed by yeast, oak, mild malt, light warming.
