Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Halcyondays on 05-07-2011

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours a deep burgundy color with a thick toffee colored ring of lacing around the glass, mild carbonation.

S - Dark maple syrup, brown sugar, toffee, musty, oak, and some dark fruit and sweet molasses.

T - Some sweet dark tart fruit, oak, bourbon, vanilla, light smoky oak, and some cherry acidity. Initially I was getting some roasted toffee on the palate but that quickly faded away and was replaced with the acidic tart cherry notes.

M - Finish is very dry but because of the presence of some tart acidity the dry finish quickly turns to semi-dry, then disappears. Velvet consistency across the tongue, thick, viscous, and lip smacking sticky.

O - With the bottle being (3+) years old it's expected the flavors and aroma have been muted.
In it's current state, predominantly oak, tart fruit, and Bourbon. If anyone likes to cellar bottles and has one of these left, I wouldn't let it sit much longer.
