Scaldis de Noel has a very thin, off-white collar of foam (hardly even that, really), a clear, bubbly, rust-red appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sharp, sweet, caramel sugar and medium-roasted malt. Taste is of those elements, with a noticeable alcohol presentation in the brandywine style. There is only the faintest shadow of bitterness, here. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, slick, and somewhat chalky, sad to say. Scaldis de Noel finishes boozy, chalky, and rich.

12oz Bottle from the Palm Desert CA Total Wine for $2

Appearance – Clear brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, caramel, booze, dark fruits

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, all spice. There is also some dark fruits, booze, and a red licorice type flavour.

Overall – A big boozy beer that is perfect for the holidays. One of the better xmas season brews that I have had. I'd have no issues drinking this any time of year.
