Why does beer buddy not work some times? On tap at blue monk pours rich amber hie with small off white head. Nose is full of caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and burnt sugar. Taste has these plus the additions of raisin and light oak. This is a treat. Full silky body. Yeah!!!!

HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
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.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014
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.

Jow (2096) - New York, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle at clocking new year. Pours orange with big nose of ripe fruit and booze. Tastes of soy sauce, caramel, ripened fruit, oak, vanilla, molasses, and booze. Harsh alcohol on finish and Way too sweet for me but it is ST after all.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2013
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.

Butters (3750) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Clear Rusty color pour with faint ring of white head. Big malty Massive syrupy raspberry medicine sweetness. Its like a uber sweet molassesy barleywine. Kinda yuck. But at least its not overly hot

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.
