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.

Bottle shared by John, thanks man! Pour is deep, cloudy ruby/ brown, with a small tan head. Aroma is musky with notes of toffee, deep worty malt, faint whisky barrel, and a touch of old basement. This does smell like an old beer, but it’s probably not. flavor is rich toffee malt with loads of smooth vanilla, and fint cocnut. Also a hint of cobwebs. Very nice cool weather sipper.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Nov 2012. Bottle at Eulogy. Opaque deep reddish brown pour. Huge barrel aged notes. Potent brew. Raisins. Oak. Cedar. Turpentine. Plum wine. Dates. Figs. Chocolate caramel. Sweet bourbon goodness. Excellent. Pungent alcohol. Aged fruit. Delicious but a bit of a chore to finish. UPDATE: On draft at Bierstube in August 2014. Similar, but maybe tasting more rich dark red fruit which is the dominant factor. Lots of dark brown sugar as well. Great stuff but still a meal and a half to finish.

Pours dark with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is molasses and bourbon. Taste is the same but the bourbon really takes the drivers seat. Nice rich texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 thanks Søren! Pours hazy deep ruby with a off-white head. Aroma is quite sugary, caramel, hazelnuts, sweet liquorice, bourbon, loads of dried fruits, Mouth feel is a bit buttery, coats the roof of your mouth, very intense, almost cloying, Taste follows the nose with loads of bourbon, almost port wine qualities, sweet caramel, heavy malty, hazelnuts loads of dried fruits and dark berries. Ends with a tingly warmth from the alcohol.

750 ml waxed bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. Not sure who shared this guy, but thanks! A: Pours a dark cherry and brown body with some dark orange edges. Crazy combo. A light tan head forms on the pour and dissipates to a bubbly ring that leaves some splotches of lace. S: Light bourbon and oak upfront with some candied sugar, dark fruits and some back end sweet caramel. T: The taste is a little more barrel forward than the nose, but the sweet caramel flavors really cut into it. There is a light leathery component in addition to some candied figs that really add another layer flavor. M: Slight chewy with medium carbonation. The body isn’t too heavy and for 15.5% this is surprisingly drinkable. O: The barrel aging thin the body just enough to make this scarily drinkable for 15.5%. I really don’t think the beer needs much time for the heat to die down and the flavor to integrate. I’d sit on this guy a little longer and that’s it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-08-2012

All i want to say is: wow its good. It has a beautifully sweet and reminds me of raison d’extra. Has an umber color with a small white head. Has a very sweet taste with a nice bite i get from bourbons and Irish single malts. Cant wait to see what its like after it ages

Pours a hazy plum brown. No carbonation until after the pour it produces. Smell is loaded with dark fruits and very heavy sugars. Deep bourbon charred oak and vanilla. I get some liquorice Taste is extremely sweet. Plums and raisins. Burnt brown sugar and pepper. Loads of boozy taste but nothing on the finish. No alcohol burn. Very sweet with vanilla at the finish. Very low carbonation. Heavy body
