Ughsmash (7466) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Coton - 750mL bottle, #3100. Poured clear, fiery garnet with a short, but easily-resuscitated yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up warm, sweet bourbon, golden raisins, and molasses with overtones of oak and Port wine.. a bit of peppery burn on the back of the nose.. big and enjoyable. The flavor found warm molasses and maple at the core, with sweet vanilla, bourbon, and peppery oak around.. finished with a lot of boozy sugars and bright, sweet bourbon. Heavy-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. good integration from the barrel, and just about the right amount of it.. this was by all means a big beer, but there were enough sweets to keep the boozage in check.

ryanfolty (2270) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2015
December 11, 2015 - bottle via Bruery cellar sale. Light brown pour with limited head. Aroma was nice blend of caramel, bourbon and maybe some vanilla and dark fruit. Taste was consistent with aroma. This was fantastic.

chinchill (3592) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Rating of CUIR, which is the 3rd Anniv. edition and not the same as Coton. Large shared bottle. 4 years old. Very fruity aroma featuring dried plums and other dark fruits. Bitter and sweet with a touch of tartness. Warming but not hot.

Given the bottle is 5 plus years old I am trying to balance what this once was versus what it is now. Lots of caramel sweetness but also some sherry like oxidation. Their Anni beers are spectacular and there is no reason to believe this wasn’t at one point. The alcohol has been subdued quite a bit but the oxidation isn’t a great replacement for me.

Papier
Tasted on 8/31/13 from a capped 750mL bottle that I had purchased at a Whole Foods a long time prior. Pours muddy brown with no head. The nose is mostly oxidized with caramel, toffee, raisin, date, and maple. The flavor is not as far gone as the nose with all of the same caramel, raisin, date, and maple, and the toffee showing a bit more toasted bitter. The body is huge with no carbonation and a long burnt sugar and sweet finish.

umich03jm (3104) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
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. It’s a sipper but doesn’t seem anywhere near 14.5%. I love this.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2015
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!

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.
