COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rorie’s Ale is a quadruple ale aged for one year in wine barrels with sour cherries. Brewed to celebrate the birth of our brewmaster Peter Hoey’s daughter this ale is designed to be cellared for years. Rich caramel, burnt sugar and spicy notes combine with the fruity cherry and sweet malt character for a complex sipping beer. This beer would pair well with lamb, duck and triple cream cheeses as well as transition seamlessly into dessert.

At Woodshop 5.0, thanks KMWeaver!! Appearance: Poured a tan creme soda color with a small soapy gathering of bubbles atop. Aroma: Very fruit, aromas of pear stood out for me. Also a bit of alcohol in the nose as well. Taste: Tart fruit, chocolate and booze. Mouthfeel: Thin and a tad sticky. Overall: I enjoyed what little I had of this. I think this would be paired well with a hearty, savory dish.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 Wow, can’t believe I finally got to try this extreme rarity. Bottle very generously shared by ipa247 on BA up in Santa Rosa. Big thanks to Jeff for this one. Pours a cloudy reddish-brown color with a nice off white head and some lacing. Excellent aroma - sour raspberries and cherries, sweet malts, and vinous notes. Flavor is actually somewhat sweet, not as tart as I expected although the tartness is definitely there. Very fruity and vinous with lots of raspberry and cherry, sweel caramel malts and toffee, barrel notes, and a little belgian yeast. Medium full body with a nice mouthfeel and average carbonation. Not too much acidity. Overall this wasn’t quite as mind-blowingly amazing as I expected, but is a very good beer, one I would definitely want to try again.

Thanks to Joey Schlitz for picking this up for me. Bottle opens with an encouraging pop, and pours reddish caramel with a tan head. Smells like sweet caramel and cherries. Taste follows with sweet caramel, toffee, and tart cherries. Fairly thick body with lots of carbonation. Fantastic brew.
