Series Three

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!

22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 11% by Vol.) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #120 for this beer.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Lovely coconut and sweet caramel aroma with light oxidation, nicely packaged there. Brilliant garnet, clear, small head. Flavor follows aroma, only a few notes but nicely balanced and aged. Lightly sticky. Better before it started to open up in the snifter. Starting to get a little parmesan cheese on the nose.

JK (4436) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Shared by Badgerben. Red color, like a fruit beer. Sweet and boozy, with some oak and lots of sugar. No carbonation, a still beer. A large amount of hops. I can’t drink very much of this.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Dark red color with no head. Light aroma of vanilla, oak, brown sugar and some barrel char. Dark fruit and prune-heavy flavor. Very sweet. Thick body. The oak comes out more as it warms.

hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Cuvee series three. Hoppy nose with sweet caramel. Golden brown color. Very sweet with lychee fruit and a tart finish. Very thick mouthfeel. Not a great aftertaste.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Bomber from Kybecca Downtown, Fredericksburg, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy tan head. Fair head retention. Big wood aroma with notes of caramel, raisin, soy, vanilla, mild hops. The taste is caramel, wood, apples, vanilla, toast, raisin, mild hops. Medium bodied. Sadly this went straight from un-drinkably sweet to oxidized.

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Copper-caramel with modest tan head (oak-aged) / Sweet nose of caramel, cooked citrus, pine, oak / Full, chewy, very sweet and syrupy, with lots of hops which ultimately can’t stand up to the sugar onslaught, and similar for the bitterness on the finish / Sweet flavors of caramel, spun sugar, cooked orange peel, pine, coconut, and oak / Very clumsy. Poured out the rest.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
22oz bomber at DC tasting courtesy of argoO! Sticky and sweet. Orange-tan. Sugary and sweet as per ST. Big time oaky tones. Quite smooth and drinkable, especially for the ABV. Tons of oak, without any fuesal alcohol burn. Drinkable, flavorful, asskicker. Lots of residual sugar, but still world class.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown and hazed. A really sweet brown sugar nose. The flavor is just and sweet. Dry bitterness. Chewey dark fruit. Some interesting spices. A dry fruity finish.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy, ruddy brown with a slight, light tan head. The nose reminds me of an oaky barley wine. Some toffee and dried fruits. The flavor is cloyingly sweet with slight metallic notes and sickly brown sugar sweetness. This brew is absolutely disgusting. It’s like drinking a fruity, metallic cup full of simple syrup. Total drain pour.
