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. Pours a dark hazy amber color with a decent head that fades quickly. The aroma is heavy caramel and alcohol. Has that old ale smell for sure. THe taste has a decent amount of alcohol, with more caramel and other burnt flavors. The bourbon flavor is very smooth. Finishes rather smooth and clean. Tastes a lot like BB4D, which is a huge compliment.

Bottle late Saturday night at BCTC courtesy of John while we hung out with our new best friend: Buttons. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a thin white to beige head. Big bourbon on the nose, musk and soy sauce. Lots of caramel and umami notes on the nose. Very sweet right away, malt and big bourbon. Sweet malt and wood, long bourbon filled flavors, caramel and soft bitterness. Finishes up with a lot more bourbon, wood, cocoa, chocolate. Tasty – yes. Way too expensive – bigger yes.

MacBoost (1333) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a thick cloudy amber with an initial head that faded quickly. Aromas of bourbon, alcohol, dark fruit, rum cake. Spicy. Big, bold and unforgiving. Taste is very hot, Belgian yeastiness, bourbon. This one is a tad excessive, but still easy drinking enough to finish the whole 750 by myself. Decent.

750ml thanks to thirdeye11. Sampled side by side with a year old bottle of Cuir. Dark brown body with a bit of head. Nose is amazing - vanilla, bourbon, roasted marshmallow, graham cracker, caramel, roasted malt. Big time barrel aging in the flavor - woody and complex.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 750 ml bottle via Reserve Society membership. Pours a deep, hazy brownish-amber with a plum tint and small beige head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, figs, brown sugar, raisins, oak, toast, and a rich, warm bourbon note throughout. Flavor of dark fruits (dates, plums, raisins, figs), oak, bourbon, caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla. Medium-bodied, though deceptively heavy, with modest carbonation and a sweet, warming mouthfeel. Very rich. Amazing nose and the palate suggests this will drink well for a while. Can’t wait to revisit. This is special. Re-Rate: Damn it, the Sucre version isn’t nearly as good as the vintages before it. Bourbon heat is present, but gone is the balance and the ability to discern more individual notes. I’ll try it again with a fresher palate, but I have to downgrade this one.

Much thanks to Ed for sharing this. Pours out a dark brownish color with a small tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, sweet caramel malts, toffee, light fruit and some wood. Taste is a thick, syrupy mouthfeel with a good amount of upfront sweetness, caramel, toffee, light figs, some wood, bourbon, vanilla and only a slight tell of the high ABV. Solid and I’m glad I got to try it.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Free taster at the tasting room. Aroma and flavor was malt-bomb! Has elements of maple syrup, brown sugar, oatmeal cookie, toasty bourbon, etc. This one is right up my alley. Still a little hot, but I'm going to hold on to a couple bottles until it settles down. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at The Bruery. Pours a muddy, deep amber. Low carbonation. Nose is bourbon, browned butter, tomato puree, brown sugar. Taste is thick dessert, butter, caramel, toffee, sweet tomato, heavy raisins. Palate is dense, lactic, milky, heavy dairy. Not too bad.

Draught at the brewery with RBSG. Hazy, red/brown liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, raw sugar, oak/bourbon, dark fruit, toast, biscuit and toffee. Nice. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of caramel and toffee. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Delicious beer.
