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).

mjs (7470) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2011
(Bottle, 0.75 l - vintage 2009, from Systembolaget, 20111224) The beer poured reddish brown and quite clear. Its head was quite small and white. Aroma had sweetness, vanilla, wood and Belgian style yeast. Palate was full bodied, warming and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, wood, vineousness, Belgian style yeast and very low bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and mildly bitter. Too boozy but otherwise nice balance between wood and beer.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2011
750 ml. bottle. A reddish pour with a small off-white head, orange highlights. Aroma of tart cherries, oak, vanilla, mild tartness, belgian yeast, candi sugar. Flavor is lightly tart, lots of caramel, belgian yeast, sugar. Definite oak, some cherry. Nice vanilla notes. Some burgandy and vinous notes. Very slight alcohol heat that’s hidden well by the complexity of this beer. Big, full mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Really great beer.

cherry vanilla oak and a nice sourness all greet my palate. dark brown pour with persistent tan head. one of the few beers i could actually feel the heat of the alcohol in if i take too large of a sip. This beer took my palate in so many different directions...gotta retry this one a few times to try to get a better handle on it.

Sigmund (7648) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2011
750 ml stylish "champagne" bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber to brown colour, large cream-coloured head. Nice vinous aroma, notes of oak and "fruits of the forest", hints of farmhouse. Vinous, oaky and well balanced flavour with moderate but sufficient hops. Extremely drinkable for its strength.

Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Bouteille. Bière trouble de couleur ruby orangée avec une fine mousse beige crémeuse affichant une bonne tenue ainsi qu’une colonne de fine bulles au centre du verre. Au nez, elle exprime des notes de cerises sûres, de fruits rouges, de raisins, de bois, de malt sucré et d’alcool. En bouche, le bois est plus présent et est accompagné d’un bouquet de petits fruits (griottes, framboises, mûres) ainsi que de raisins secs, de figues ainsi que d’une pointe d’épices, le tout supporté par une bonne base de malt bien sucré et qui se termine par une belle pointe d’alcool. Tout y est en subtilité et en équilibre. Elle est légèrement crémeuse et agrémentée de fines bulles. Une grande bière.

drpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Whoa, ass kickass! Poured with a large cream colored head that lasts a very long time and a little lace. Color is a cloudy amber brown. Aroma is yeast, burgundy dregs, oak, malt. Flavors’ similar and just a perfect pinacle of pleasure with the highlights of burgundy in oak, yeast, fruit, malt, and yeast. Finish is similar to nose, has good length, and is sneaky as hell with the alcohol. An absolute masterpiece!

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
Bouteille de 750ml partagée avec Patrick, Julien et Pier-Luc. Bière ambrée avec un mince filet de mousse blanche. Le nez est bien vineux, fruité, boisé avec se qui semble être des brett. La bouche est puissante, les tannins bien présents. Cette ale est forte, chaude et elle a une bonne effervescence. Un produit singulier. Un géant de bière. 8/10
