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).

Very complex flavours and aromas. The red fruits are right there at the onset. The alcohol burn is significant. Flavours of spices linger quite some time.

yngwie (16762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Bier Central. It pours an unclear, reddish amber to brown body and a dense, light beige head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Vinous and slightly acetic. Slightly woody and a bit sweetish, with the alcohol sure present. Some peppery notes. Very warming on the palate, full-bodied and smooth, with a fine blend of flavors. Red wine, vinegar, dark fruits, sugar, hints of dried fruits and a yeasty hint. Super-long finish, where the warmth stays the longest time. A true beauty. Just lovely. 110429

75 cl bottle. Vintage 2009, BBE 2012 according to cork, BBE 2014 according to bottle
Sweetish aroma has oak and some raisins. Flavour has lots of sherry-like oak, some alcohol and some raisins. Not too sweet, but the oak is too overwhelming.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
750 ml bottle. 2009 version.
Pours a reddish brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of lovely rich, slightly sour fruits, oak and toffee. Flavour of rich, slightly sour fruits, caramel, malts, mild hops and a massive amount oak. Full bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a dry, oaky, warming finish. Very tasty and quite complex. This hit my sweet spot.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Pours red-soaked amber with a modest light brown head. Nose is very tart and has a wine-like quality without being too similar to wine; some rich, dark maltiness is present as well. Flavor is extremely complex and dominated by brown sugar, grapes, dull fruits, alcohol, sharp yeastiness, all balanced against an almost hot, spiced hop and coriander profile. Some sourness in the finish. The booziness is big but does not really detract. An odd and very expensive selection, but mostly a pleasant experience.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Bottle (trade with BelgBeerGeek - thanks). Red wine, orange, cinnamon, and barley malt aroma. Murky orange-brown color with moderate head. Sweet orange and cinnamon flavor initially followed by a red wine and strong alcohol flavor. Mild carbonation. Surprisingly smooth for a beer this strong.

Rune (11759) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
750ml bottle shared with the Oslo guys at Bier Central. Dark amber body topped by a filmy layer. Rich aroma with tart fruits, raisin and dusty hops. Delicious taste of dried fruits, apples and spiced malts on an oaky backbone. Very dry ending. Solid, but integrated, alcohol warmth. A pleasure to drink a beer like this (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).
