wedgie9 (2687) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
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.

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. Its a sipper but doesnt 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!

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 cant 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.
