The Bush Prestige de Nuits was introduced to the market in 2008. To create this beer, the Scaldis Noël was matured for six to nine months in oak barrels that were previously used to mature Bourgogne de Nuits-St-Georges, one of the great Burgundy wines. The beer is decanted into 75cl bottles and placed in the brewery’s warm room to produce a second fermentation. The final result is utterly surprising. This is a beer with plenty of character, a clear colour, vinous aromas and a taste profile that leans towards wine… A real discovery and highly recommended!

Corked bottle @ UDRM, Oirschot. Cognac and tropical dried fruit in the aroma and flavor. Fruity and lemony notes with brandy. A big beer.

Bottle, 2016. Color: Copper, stable dense off-white head. Aroma: Red fruit, hints of caramel and vinuous hints. Taste: Vinuous and fruity. Clear yet subtle red wine notes, malt, red fruit, prunes and sugary, wood and light caramel hints. Pretty complex flavours. Moderate sweet and bitter and lightly sour, very well balanced. Bit boozy. Dry-ish mouthfeel. Over medium body, under average carbonation. One of the best, most complex and best balanced Belgian beers in my opinion.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; 2014 vintage bottling, best before 3/11/2017. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge raisin, plum, prune, cherry, fig, date, currant, raspberry, blackberry, apricot, red apple, red grape, peppercorn, red/white wine, cinnamon, clove, nuttiness, toasted oak, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, and biscuit; with lighter notes of oaken vanilla, licorice, herbal, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrels, and dark/bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge raisin, plum, prune, cherry, fig, date, currant, raspberry, blackberry, apricot, red apple, red grape, peppercorn, red/white wine, cinnamon, clove, nuttiness, toasted oak, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, and biscuit; with lighter notes of oaken vanilla, licorice, herbal, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast/oak spiciness and light wine tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark fruits, currant, cherry, berry, apricot, red apple, red grape, peppercorn, red/white wine, cinnamon, clove, nuttiness, toasted oak, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, biscuit, vanilla, licorice, herbal, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrels, and dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/spiciness and wine tang/tartness balance; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from yeast/oak spiciness, wine tang/tartness, and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/sticky/tannic, and lightly slick/syrupy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden; a lightly increasing warmth of 13%, with minimal booziness lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible barrel aged Belgian strong dark ale! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrels, and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the huge ABV. Perfect balance of yeast, malt, and Bourgogne barrel complexity. Never overly sweet/heavy feeling for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example. Definitely worth the price to try once.

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.

A majestic looking 0.75l corked bottle from trade with BelgBeerGeek. This is the 2011 version. It pours a cloudy plum red colored body with a big but somewhat quickly fading and big bubbled off-white head. Smells really Belgian and dark candied sweet. Lots of fruity yeasty tones, a bunch of honey, some alcohol, sour red berries - lots of them actually. Also I get traces of both red wine and vanilla. Smells quite complex and nice. Even if it has had a few years in the bottle it still feels a bit raw and almost brutal. Not that I was expecting a mild or a bitter, but I had thought it would be a bit less in your face. Above average on the carbonation and it has a surprisingly thin oily mouthfeel. Nice red berries, lots of oak tannins, Belgian candy, warming alcohol. Lots of flavor in this, and the barrels has really made an influence. Soft dry autumn leafs, a bit of acidic lingon berries, watered down red wine vinegar and traces of something that's remaining me of the bitterness in cocoa nibs. Honey also present in the flavor. Lots of things going on here, perhaps even a bit to much, making it a bit all over the place. I'm enjoying it more and more the further down the bottle I get. Thanks for the bottle Vincent! 07.04.2013

F: not very big, off-white, quick gone but for such a beer it´s ok. C: reddish to brownish, a little hazy. A: red wine, oak barrel, hint of honey, vinous sour tones, caramel, sherry, hint of barnyard, berries, herbal spicy. T: tartness of red wine, oak barrel, some earthy, light honey, dry vinous finish, wood, berries, light candy, medium body, lower carbonated, lingering sherry on the palate, interesting complex beer reminds me good lambics but this is even more complex as it ages in wine barrels, worth to try but at almost ambient temperature, 0,75l bottle from Delhaize bought in December 2015.
