From the brewer

Cuivre is our seventh anniversary ale, loosely brewed in the English-style old ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. A portion of each of our anniversary ales is saved in our barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character that comes with age. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Cuivre is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.

Who's been drinking this

Lots of similarity with sticky monkey. Dark sweet fruit flavors buttery smell, very rich, the booziness is well hidden.
Holy cow, it's like someone made a syrup out of Stickee Monkee. In fact, this is very much like the versions of that beer that hovered around 16% in the pre-bottle days. Butterscotch and plum and oh-so-intense. It was a lot to take, but I think this was pretty great.
