Nice sweet coconut flavor maybe a bit too sweet, but nothing huge to complain about. A good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Rene’s house, courtesy of chrisv10. Thanks! Hazy reddish orange appearance with a small off-white head. Somewhat boozy, rich bready, caramel malty, oaky, light coconut aroma. Pretty smooth, somewhat chewy caramel malty, slightly burnt sugar, lightly piney, herbal flavor. Some oxidation but not bad. Held up pretty well and actually better than the other two that I tasted with Armin.

I see this is retired now, drank it 7/09/12 and it was excellent. sweet but in a subtle, mellow, way, soothing. Thick and yummy, a dessert in itself.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from dfhhead25 (thanks Gib), pours a cloudy orangey red with a medium off-white head. Aroma of oak, wood, dry citrus, toffee and a little oxidation. Flavour of caramel, oxidized sherry notes, some butterscotch, and a little sugar, though perhaps less pronounced due to its age. Quite complex and not sweet, but maybe slightly past its prime as evinced by the oxidation notes. Not the "diabetes in a bottle" that Cuvée 3 was, but inferior to Cuvée 2.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
65 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 22.01.2011
Aroma is sweetish and malty with some ripe fruits and hops. Flavour is sweetish with caramel, some ripe fruits and hints of stinging alcohol. Decent, but somehow I expected more by the name.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle, and I can’t remember where in Cincinnati I bought it because it was in 2009 when I was first buying craft beer in large quantities. Pours a hazy orange-gold with no head. Aroma of caramel, maple syrup, oak, citrus, coconut, vanilla, and pine resin. Flavor of citrus, pine resin, oak, maple syrup, coconut, mild spices, and leaves. Medium-full bodied, with a smooth, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty damn sweet. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from a 22 oz bottle. The appearance is a nice crystal clear copper hue with a micro white head. Very sweet nose with a lot of caramel and some orange blossom honey. The flavors are caramel, almond, butterscotch. with a slightly chard white oak in a long finish. Some rooty spiced liquor flavors in there too. The carbonation has faded. A decent brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. So this is the near-lost flag ship of ST? Let’s have a go, then. Dark clear orange body, small white head. Nose is syrup, vanilla, melon, molasses, pine, cough syrup and hints of hazelnuts. Taste is caramel, cough syrup, coconut, vanilla, nuts and hints of alcohol. Full-bodied, exquisitely blended and utterly delicious; Southern Tier does not let down with this one. Why the low rating? Y’all got bad bottles or something? ;-)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 12/30/11 from a 22oz bomber bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with an average beige head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace with a lace spot in the center of the beer. The nose is caramel and maple malt, with all of the spices and aromas that I associate with french oak; vanilla, cinnamon, and hints of coconut and clove. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel and maple up front, moving to coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, and a touch of clove. The body is full with an oily texture, average carbonation, and a long, oaky vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, and maple finish.
