AirForceHops (6441) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle 2011 vintage, thanks ClarkVV. Dirty brown color. Aroma is oxidation, wet cardboard, dark fruit and caramel.

Flavor is heavy oxidation. Some dark fruit but this has sat to long. Really to long. Ouch

More old beer. This one shared by ClarkVV, who is easily The Bruerys biggest fan. Thanks, Clark! Pours red brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, molasses, dark fruits. Flavor is caramel, molasses, dark cherry. Held up well. Alcohol well hidden.

ryanfolty (2424) - 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 (4440) - 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 wasnt at one point. The alcohol has been subdued quite a bit but the oxidation isnt a great replacement for me.

Bottle 2010 Cuir 25% Barrel aged. Color is murky brown with soft white head. Toffee aroma and brown sugar. Taste is nice and mellow oak and vanilla Age has worked well on this.

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.
