COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
May is our anniversary month and we are excited to release Sucre, our sixth anniversary ale this week! This beer is brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method, where 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.

Editor’s Note: This is the entry for The Bruery’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

Thisis12ptfont (808) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Aroma of intense molasses, sticky malts, raisins, roasted amber malts, big alcohol on the nose, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Very darkened plum/magenta appearance and big alcohol legs. Big sticky malt sweetness overwhelms the palate. Huge, complex notes of cinnamon, roasted malts, raisins, plums, maple syrup, molasses, dark fruits, and toffee. Finish is massive with immense bourbon burn (like taking a shot) and big barrel notes. Overall, The Bruery knocks another homerun out of the park. Huge sticky, slick molasses/malt overtones ending with insane booziness. A+ rating.

750 bottle, Bois. Stamped May 13. Murky brown. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee and a lot of booze. Damn good stuff.

ljthiessen (307) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy brown pour, beige head. Lots of oak and bourbon in the nose, butter and brown sugar too. Flavour is lots of brown sugar, caramel, bourbon. Very sweet, but enough alcohol and flavour to support it. Hides the ABV, but still boozy. Very very nice.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
750ml bottle [as Bois, 2013 vintage, 15.0% abv]. Hazy dark brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Intense malty aroma, notes of toffee, caramel, nougat, marsipan, BA notes of oak and vanilla, prospects of alcohol, spicy yeasty overtones. Taste is very sweet malty, notes of toffee, BA notes of vanilla, oak, Bourbon, treacle, tiramisu, Kahlúa, warming and slightly burning alcohol; oily texture, very sticky palate, lasting sweet malty finish. Hard, heavy, starkly, pretentious, not pure pleasure. Kind of "großkotziger Schwanzersatz".

Strong aromas of port wine, raisin, rum, cooked sugar, some alcohol. Very dark red, almost black, with a minimal head. Sweet, sticky, warming, very aromatic, very chewy. Medium bodied. Very complex, an awesome sipper.

750 ml bottle is 2014 vintage labeled "Sucré" aged in bourbon barrels. Thanks for sharing Huhzubendah! Pours a hazy translucent brown with light bourbon booziness over the top of caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is same with slight coconut notes in addition to mild bourbon complexity and caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied with active carbonation. A world class beer by a world class brewery.

pfc514 (60) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Sucre version (Bourbon Barrel Aged.) Pours a root-beer brown into a snifter. Light tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of bourbon, caramel, and a faint bite of alcohol. Bourbon is definitely very prominent in the taste, with some dark fruits and almost licorice elements in the flavor as well. At the end there’s a soapy bitterness, that, while not unpleasant, is strange. For a 17.6% beer, not super boozy, with slight alcohol heat at the end.

2014.06.17 - The Bruery Sucre (the Bourbon Barrel version, I believe) -750ml bottle in a pint glass. 2014 vintage. Aroma: caramel, malty 8/10 Appearance: Pours around 20 on SRM scale. Mostly hazy opaque dark raisiny tan. Head about a finger before dissipating to a ring. Mild carbonation. 4/5 Taste: Burnt caramel, sweet, a bit of mild salt on back end perhaps. 8/10 Palate/Mouthfeel: medium, creamy, soft carbonation, boozy 3/5 Overall: Reminds me of my memory of Melange 3, boozy and caramel sweetness. Good stuff, worth a bottle and to cellar one maybe, but not necessarily repeat purchase. Hard to complain much about price around $30 when it’s 17%. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 16/20caramel,

ryecatcher (717) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
750mL bottle. Pours a murky, chestnut color with a medium tan head , average retention. Nose is ’barrel-heavy’ accompanied by molasses, caramel, dates, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, wet cardboard. Mouth is thick, slightly creamy and then almost syrupy; a lotta sweetness, brown sugar, vanilla, prunes, dried fruit, mild bitterness at mid-range, with ABV warmth throughout. Finishes with a slightly astringent note and (although I let this sit almost a year) also still a bit hot . Decent, but certainly not worth the price tag. A very Happy Father’s Day to all my fellow beer lovers to whom it applies.
