3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle, about a year old when drank. Deep amber colour, hazy, looks thick, basically no head. Strong aroma with lots of oak and sour smells, some coconut and whole bunch of other complexity behind that. Brandy alcohol smells, too. Strong taste spiced molasses cookie taste. Can’t really taste the alcohol, but I can feel it. Body is somehow smooth, sticky and dry at the same time. Overall, very good, but too intense to do the whole bottle alone. Best to share.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 02-21-2012 (Bottle) This beer pours a small beige head that has a short retention, hazy reddish body, very little carbonation observed, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, oak, dark fruits, spicy, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, oak, woody, caramel malt, spicy, dark fruity, and boozy. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This is a good sipping beer with a warming sensation as the beer warmed up. It is a beer I would absolutely drink again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle that I took to James’ place for A Clocking New Years! Pours a clear ruby amber with thin white head. Nutty almond and wood on the nose, vanilla, soy sauce. Medium-bodied, bordering on thick. Super sweet, sugary. Sweeter than the chocolates we just ate. Sweet, sweet, and more sweet. Oxidized, soy sauce, wood and vanilla. Too sweet and messy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, from Dilly Cafe. Shared with Caterwaul and co. Totally clear darker red color. Thin khaki bubbly head. COuple loose dots and reaches of lace. Big caramel, raisiny, dark fruity nose. Very sweet, sort of cloying taste, with a medicinal bitterness. Bigger body. Light carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. OK, complex aroma, but taste is very harsh, and oxidization doesn’t work with his beer like it sort of did in Cuvee 2. After it sits for a bit the cloying sweet subsides a little, but the taste is still not very pleasant, a little over sweet and medicinally bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12/29/2010: Southern Tier Cuvée 3... Aroma: Deep Belgin fruits, berries, peach; welcomed, refined alcohol. Appearance: Shiny, deep copper color; frothy beige crown. Flavor: Sweet, caramelly malts; deep fruits; subdued oak; toasted coconut and vanilla-almond; warming alochol; non-aggressive bitterness; the alcohol and woodiness help to balance the sweetness. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; smooth; slightly viscous. Overall: I really like this beer; it is a combination of the two previous version, but better than both individually... that’s called synergy!
