2011 Cuir bottle. Murky dark brown pour with almost no head. Awesome burnt caramel aroma along with some sweet toffee, vanilla, and plums. Tastes like liquid candy. Burnt caramel, vanilla, oak, some dark fruit. Pretty awesome. No booze at all. Itís a sipper but doesnít seem anywhere near 14.5%. I love this.

The head is ok, the body darkbrown and cloudy. It smells darkmalty, raisin, dry fruits, bit alcoholic but not much for 14.5%. The taste is darkmalty, aromatic, hoppy, sour, fruity. Intensive barrel aged taste. Delicious!

750ml bottle courtesy of Thanasis. Dark red brown color with small beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, fruity, dark fruits, pecorino cheese, wood. Sweet and light bitter taste, malty caramel and fruity, some vanilla notes, wood again. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Bottle of Cuir. Aroma is showing some slight oxidation with sherry notes. Lots of dark dried fruit including raisins and prunes. Some dark toffee and caramel notes with a bit of a smokey roast character. Hint of meaty soy sauce. Light alcohol note. Pours a somewhat murky, burnt amber with brown hues. Moderate sized, fairly thick, dark tan head that exhibits good retention as it recedes to a thin film in the center of the glass. Flavor is rather sweet with a lot of dark caramel and toffee notes. Lighter chocolate and burnt sugar with hints of roast and smoke. Moderate dark fruit notes of cherry and plums. Some raisin and prune notes as well. Faint meaty, soy sauce note; definitely lighter than the aroma. Medium light alcohol spice. Lingering dry fruit and dark caramel. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but I canít tell whether its going through a bit of a weird phase or totally turning for the worse with that meaty note. Its quite a different beer from the Fruet I recently had. Lots more fruit notes and signs of age.

On draught at Saraveza for their 6th anniversary. Dark amber color. Aroma is brown sugar and molasses. Taste is similar, with definite honey and vanilla notes. Amazingly strong, yet sweet and tasty.

Drank during an awesome tasting at Thijsí place 28-3-2014. Very sweet, almost like a barley wine. Carbonation, present alcohol taste. Chocolate after taste. Magnificent beer. Posted 7 months later cause I accidentally rated the wrong beer back then!

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 "pours mahogony with a thin tan head, big time sweet alcoholic aroma hits home...fig/raisiny sweet, vanilla, bourbon. youíd think due to the intensity and strength it was far more than 25% barrel gaed, but thatís what it said. the bourbn didnít dominate, but it was sweet and warming still. very very tasty, but it couldíve been better toned down a bit. maybe 11-12% and not as sweet? usually with the partially barreled beers iím begging for 50/50, but in this case, the 75% ale was sweet and hot to begin with, so it was good...but too aggressivesubsequent years less sweet even while getting stronger. Up a tenth. to be great."
