In Claremont, CA for short visit. Into Stolzle tulip glass from 750ml. Fine pour; a very deep brown with a light tan head that stands up for a bit, but settles to a perimeter of bubbles quickly, as with many barleywine-type high-alc beers. This beer exhibits depth and span on all fronts. Rich with fruit, but balanced by chocolate and port, and even some Coca-Cola notes. However, it doesn’t lose touch with barley--that underlying element is always apparent. Fruet is warm and viscous, but the alcohol doesn’t dominate (I don’t think I’d ever guess 15.5%!). Bottom line, it’s a beer of true complexity. One of the best super-gravity beers I’ve had.
Fruet version. Bottle. Hazy red amber beer with a small beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, molasses, herbs, vanilla, vinous and oak. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, honey, herbs, dried fruit, vanilla, oak and vinous tones. Sweet. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2017
On tap @ The Growler. This is a cloudy looking one, almost a little murky and deep plum brown in colors. On the top a medium sized dense beige heavy lacing head. Really like the nose. It’s both a little sourish and very malt caramelly sweet. Loaded with dried fruits, vanilla, wood, berries and malt biscuits. Smells really nice. Sugary sweet at times but not cloying at all. Yeah, mine kind of aroma. Tastes wonderful. Dried and really berry sweet. Blue and blackberries with those small sweet plums. It’s thick and oily in the mouth while soft gentle on the prickling carbonation. A little licorice, tones of cigar, some tarmac, vanilla and a lovely intense dried fruity finish containing dates ang figs. A beautiful one. 19.06.2017 HopsTamer57 (17) - - JUN 15, 2017

Aus der Flasche Cuivre 7th Anniversary (2015) 2016-12 getrunken. Dieses sau leckere Schwergewicht läßt sich ganz schwer zu beschreiben. Der brtitische Old Ale Stil ist sehr gut getroffen und das Bourbon BA fügt sich sehr gut ein ohne das Bier zu dominieren. Spitzenklasse! patnichols (8) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2017 does not count
Tried bruery's cuivre at paradiso D.C. That's the beer rated here. Beer buddy says it's the same beer as bruery's poterie. Paradiso says this one is the 7th anniversary beer & poterie is 8th. Lovely quad but a bit too bubbly for the style. Nearly 17%. Foggy color so unfiltered? Cinnamon nose. Coats the young but flavor strongest on the edges. Wonderful, slightly sharp, very durable after taste

750ml bottle, thanks Harri. Pours clear dark reddish-brown colour, small head stays as ring. Sherry, red wine, sweet cherry notes, wood, booze in aroma. Rich booze caramel, port wine, vanilla, cocoa in taste. Very silky and soft texture. Cognac-ish warming aftertaste, lingonberry. Low carbonation. Nice, if I’m not taking this as a beer. Warmer.
