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).

Madsnp (933) - - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle from the 2008 vintage. Pours light copper colored with small chunks and a nice small, dense, creamy and lasting off white head. Aromas of wood, caramel, berries, alcohol (surprisingly little), cider vinegar, christmas spices and candi sugar. Warming alcohol in the flavor and with notes of sweet malty caramel, tart wood and a rather dry finish.. Excellent beer!

BlackHaddock (6556) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Cork and caged .75 litre bottle between five at the Dec 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Club meeting: cheers me for taking this 2014 bottled beauty. Red hue to the amber body, the head a thin off-white affair. Wine like in the nose, with spices and herbs with a woody undertone. Taste wise it was semi-sour red wine, oak aged and again spicy like the aroma. Not too sure what I was expecting, but it wasn’t a Flemish Red/Oud Bruin sort of brew base.

Leighton (19218) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to beersiveknown. Pours lightly hazy golden-brown with a dense, frothy off-white head. The aroma has some lightly tangy fruits, orange, bread, berries. Medium sweet flavour with a nice, light acidity that cuts through the body, some further orange, melon, pale bread. Medium to full bodied with massaging carbonation. Warming finish with restrained tang, some lemon, tangerine, a little orange peel, light woody dryness. Great balance overall. Well and drinkable.

minutemat (4636) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2016
75cl bottle @ shared at monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, brought by Blackhaddock. Thanks Blackhaddock. Pours a deep reddish amber, off-white head. Aroma is vinous, oaky, bourgogne wine and balsamic oud bruin. Taste is tart, earthy ripened berry fruits, oud bruin oaky warmth, good wine influence. Balanced and somewhat restraining on the strength, but still very warming thanks to the barrel aging. Good winter beer.

adster (713) - HUNGARY - OCT 31, 2016
A Dubuisson meseszerű főzete már első ránézésre is nagyobb lehetőségek hordozója, mint a "Prestige" nevezetű típus, mely két példány között a rokoni viszony bár egyeneságinak tekinthető, ebben a kontextusban jelen tesztalanyunkra mindenképpen felmenőként tekintsünk. Méltóságteljes külleme mély, opálos test kivetülése, melyre mennyeien krémes, tejfehér hab kenődik egy ujjnyi vastag rétegben, a mulandóság pedig a krémhab számára voltaképpen ismeretlen fogalom. Ez alól röppennek fel aztán a szabadjára engedett csemegekosár-aromák, a mézes, mazsolás, almakompótos, finom likőrös, aszús és élesztős illatok, hogy aztán ízjegyek formájában szinte mind testet is öltsenek. Intenzív jelleggel, desszertboros hangulatban, aszalt gyümölcsös elemek nyitnak be elsőként, majd olvadnak szét krémesen a puha, mégis élénk szerkezet keretében. A kompozíció buja élesztővel fonódik be ezután, némi fahordós, boros lenyomatot kap, majd ugyanolyan üdén, mint ahogyan érkezett, az alkohol jótékony pártfogásában, megnyerő stílusban, sziporkázva, szárazan, mégis gyümölcsösen köszön le. "Prestige" ide, vagy oda, számomra ez viszi a pálmát.

Swaroga (2129) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
75cl bottle. The beer is cloudy brown with big but quickly disappearing head. Aroma is intensive, almost aggressive. Strong notes of dried fruits like figs, apple and grapes. Some cherries, banana and apricot. Also lots of barrel aging notes well balanced with the rest like vanilla, wood tannin, red wine. Quite sweet malty notes of chocolate tart with prunes. Complex and intensive. Mouth feel is very soft and fluffy with medium strong carbonation. It does foam when swallowed so it needs some de-carbonisation. Medium thick. Taste ? It is very complex. Overall quite dry with fruity and spicy notes . But not like a semi-sec wine but more like a tart with fruits but not much sugar. Alcohol is warming but apart that it doesn’t exist. Finish is a bit fruity sour and herbal. Still very smooth even in the finish.
