COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissons 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 Nol, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

FlacoAlto (4173) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke
For the last beer of the night, we decided to put ourselves in the capable hands of Joost. We decided to start out tasting the beer blind and see what showed up in our glass.

The beer is nice and cold on this hot summer night. It has a certain mustiness to it and even a touch of tartness that seems almost acetic somehow and there is definitely a caramelized grain note to it. The beer has a frothy, tan tinged, light colored head. The body is a dark, burnt amber color that shows a clear amber color when held up to the light. Aromas of raisins, prunes, proper caramel note, suggestions of woody mushrooms, hints of tobacco, quite nutty smelling at times and there is even some heat from alcohol towards the finish after a bit.

The beer tastes sweet and fruity in a non-descript way up front and the finish is a bit astringent. Touches of childrens aspirin, concord grape, raisins, dates and cherry (last seems accentuated by a light acetic note) are all noticeable in the flavor. This finishes with some heat that warms my esophagus. The beer is actually somewhat light body for its strength. It really does have a nice nuttiness to it and the alcohol becomes much more apparent as the beer warms up. The fruity notes are quite nice and seem to be the signature of the wine-barrel character.

This was a perfect end to an afternoon / evening of enjoying fantastic food and great beer at De Heeren van Liedekercke. This is best described as a big glass of wham that sent me overly satiated to stumble up stairs to sleep.

Vaiz (4426) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle at home. Smells like wine. More grapes in the flavor. Quite soft and sweet though. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth and round, and somewhat fruity. Nice balance. Nothing really special going on though.

mazfln (116) - Florianpolis, BRAZIL - SEP 16, 2010
@ Beer Weekend in Brussels (2010). Wonderful beer. Dark brown with small head. Aroma of dried fruits, yeast and alcohol, "panetone" like. Very rich flavour of dried fruits and wood, with some sweetness but well balanced and not cloying. A very nice and special one!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
In short: A very vinous, very oaky, very tannic and surprisingly easy to drink beer. Wow.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed around 8 months after the beer release. Tasting session with Montreal crew. Bottle sent to me by tytoanderso, thanks a lot Tyler
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Interesting nose of oak, grapes and cherries. Taste is very vinous, more than vinous, this is fresh grapes. Some other fruits such as bananas (really!) in there too. The oak is very strong in this one and it really dries out the beer. Lots of tannins too. Very dry finish. Yet despite its strong oaky sourness and tannins character I thought the beer was rather easy to drink. No alcohol presence whatsoever. A great beer to go with a full meal. The problem is the very high price tag on this baby. But the way I see it, Im just giving away pieces of paper that, at some point, were probably in a strippers butt.

douglas88 (8552) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke. Pours a cloudy dark amber with no head at all. Lots of sweet woody notes, some brandy-like sweetness. The flavor is warm and malty, nutty, fruit, huge dry barrel. Nice.

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle: Poured a murky red/beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of lightly sweet malt with oak notes, subtle tart notes and a vinous character. Taste is also a mix between a lightly sweet non-descript malt base with tart notes and a vinous feel from the wine barrel. Body was quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I must say I was disappointed by this one I am not sure the wine barrel brought anything more that I appreciated. I was expecting more sour notes as opposed to some grapes. The price tag is another factor probably not helping.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2010
09 vintage. Dark brown pour with a good-sized, frothy white head. Aroma holds definite notes of wine at the start, then shifts to massive components of raisin, prune, date, sweetbread, candied sugars, caramel, and molasses-- classic Belgian strong, but with increased wine presence. Flavor is lighter and carries more of the wine barrel aging-- plum, nectarine, oak, bready Belgian yeast, and a beautiful presence of Cointreau and red raspberry at the finish. Palate is smooth and luscious, but you can definitely feel the bite from the 13% ABV, though its welcomed. Very very nice brew.

egajdzis (6195) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Lightly hazy dark amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, red wine, toast, toffee, and alcohol. Taste of vanilla, toasted malts, some caramel, dark fruits, and alcohol in the finish.

johndoughty (5090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Fruity aroma and poured with a medium head. As you would expect it has a strong presence of alcohol with a slightly sour taste. Some bitterness and the alcohol kick lingers for some time.Classy 75 cl bottle. Different but I wouldnt try it again.
