Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Cuir is our third anniversary ale. It is the same recipe as Papier, but again created using the Solera method. Each year we will continue to blend old barrels of anniversary ale with a new batch of the same beer, adding an additional layer of complexity that will grow over time as we continue to age and blend with each anniversary, creating an older average age to the ale.

750ml, 2011 anniversary
The Bruery tulip

A: Murky reddish brown. Not a lot of head. Not a lot of lacing. Lower carbonation. Alcohol feet are there.

S: Dark fruits. Booze. Sweet malts. Toffee. Doesn't smell AS oxidized as the Papier but this has to do with the age. I love the nose on these.

T: Flavor is similar to Papier but a little less oxidized. Lots of dark fruit. Some brown sugar. Very sweet malty goodness. Vanilla and toffee. Touches of leather and some tobacco behind it all. Finish is long.

M: Full bodied. Chewy.

4.8/5  rDev +15.7%

Poured into snifter at a bottle share from a 750 ml bottle.

A: Pours a redish orange color with a minimal amount of carbonation.

S: The smell was very boozy with notes of vanilla and caramel.

T: Taste follows with the smell and was very boozy. The caramel and vanilla follow through.

O: Overall it's a very good beer. Same as with the other anniversary beers, it is best enjoyed among friends. Tackling this by yourself would be a massive challenge.
