COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a sweet beer with a pleasant flavour of hops. Indeed, for Bush de Noel, the brewer uses a traditional process which consists in placing hops flowers in the vats where the beer rests for four to six weeks by which time it will have reached full maturity, giving it a very distinctive taste. In the U.S the label generally reads Scaldis Noel.

finally gotcha! daek copper..good thick head, 1 fat finger!..sweet twisted choc smell...nicely masked for me, but for my pilsener loving uncle,a little harsh...this is full and complex and fruity and warming yet subtle but an ass kicker! good, an aged sample is what alludes me now!

Bottle at Flying Saucer Charlotte. Brilliant ruby, dark amber. Faint smell of alcohol. Very sweet, nice spice character. Canít taste the alcohol too much, but definitely warms you.

Flaske fŚet af vores Ýlpusher pŚ vesterbro. Klar kastanje med lille rŚhvidt skum. SÝd som bolsjer (kongen af Danmark) i duften og sma ger alt for meget af mandelessens. Det er ikke en favorit.

Bottle from BevMo La Mesa. Pours a dark amber color with little head. Strong rich aroma consisting of dark fruits, raisins, and alcohol. Some apple aroma and a little tobacco. Very spicy dark fruit flavor with some alcohol burn. Strong malty finish. Alcohol isnít as noticable in the finish. Enjoyable sipper.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 First rate 4.2 Very Christmasy. The taste is too malty to be top notch for me, but other than that, there is little to complain about. Good spices. Second rate shown in score only.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2006
This I like. Dark brownish in color. Very rich in taste, there is sweet chocolate (lots), butterscotch and and a wall of hoppy bitterness in the background. Aroma is pretty much the same save the bitterness and add roasted malt. A very firey mouthfeel due to the alcohol is very present, but it never gets too heavy. Overall a great beer I would love to have again on some chilly winterís night.
