COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The traditional 7th anniversary gift is copper, so weíve named our 7th anniversary ale "Cuivre" which is "copper" in French. Cuivre is 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 yearís 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.

Editorís Note: This is the entry for The Brueryís Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

750 ml bottle, bottle #16237. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a murky dark brown color with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The aroma is very sweet, the brew smells like maple, molasses, vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar, dark fruit and caramel. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like maple, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, oak, caramel, dark fruit and some sweet booze. And it just seems to get better and better as the beer warms (I let the bottle sit out of the fridge for about 1/2 an hour before opening it). Mouthfeel/body is full, itís creamy and coating with low/moderate carbonation. For a brew thatís 15.5% ABV, itís dangerously drinkable. I think this is an excellent overall brew, and I would love to drink one again sometime. However, it is pricey at $34.99 a bottle.

Odysseyalien (53) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2015
On tap at Churchkey, Washington, DC. Iíve had the 2013 in a bottle but the 2015 draft is a bomb. Theyíve blended years 1-7 with 2015 and the result is an amazing oak aged strong ale. This brew defines the tern "sipper". Iím not going to narrow down taste, mouthfeel, etc. If you like old ales, barleywines, and the like, get your hands on this guy. You wonít be disappointed.

BOSSbrewer (2518) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Had on tap at the source on 5/8/15. Pours dark brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is bourbon and some oak and lots of dark fruits - figs, plums, raisins. Really this and sweet. Flavor follows and is sticky sweet dark fruits, with bourbon and oak. Come caramel and toffee also. This, chewy mouthfeel. Silky smooth. About 3 ounces was enough. Nice beer.

Bottle at porch nite shared with Brisben and Raith. Pours a mahogany brownish red with one finger of thin off white foam. Aroma is very malty and lots of oakey bourbon barren aromas. Flavor follows and is really sweet. Lots of maltiness, lots of dark fruits, and slight tartness. Sour cherries. Very sweet. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice beer.

Lothore (585) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a thin, off white head. Huge bourbon and brown sugar notes in the nose. Dark chocolate, bourbon, caramel, hints of berry, vanilla and oak. Mouthfeel is thick with ample carbonation. Extremely drinkable for the alcohol content. Delicious old ale.

Spicy alcohol notice, bourbon, sweet caramel malts, sweet caramel, raisins, toffee, prunes, cacao, vanilla, Dries apricots in the finish. Very good. Way and way better as the sucre cognac

Johnsense (944) - - MAY 3, 2015
Dark pour, sizeable head. Slight alcohol warming while drinking this. Maple syrpu in aroma and taste, dark caramel, sugary, bourbon barrel prominent but not overpowering. Dessert beer, and one that needs to be sipped.. That 17% alcohol is noticeable.

Backlog. Draft at Tap and Handle. Reddish brown appearance. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark malts and some light fruity esters. Similar flavor, heavily sweet with other minor complexities throughout. The alcohol is mostly hidden. A pretty good sipper.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2015
750mL bottle as "Fruet". Poured a lovely shade of burgundy with a short, looser beige head. The aroma was rich, with deep vinous notes, dark fruit, vanilla, and bourbon leading.. very strong peppery alcohol on the back of the nose.. dark chocolate and figs if you dig deep. The flavor found peppery bourbon and vinous notes on the tip of the tongue, with dark fruit jam, molasses, berries, and a touch of maple behind.. sweet bourbon, crisp oak, and jammy dark fruits on the long, belly-warming finish. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. very coating (in a good way).. great stuff!

This is a complex tasting beer and has lots of kick hides the alcohol very well. The Bruery has done it again another all around great great from all aspects.
