COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The traditional 7th anniversary gift is copper, so we’ve 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 year’s 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.

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

hopwine (663) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a muddy dark opaque brown. Aroma is comprised of bourbon, vanilla, alcohol heat, caramel and toffee. Flavors include a light sharp fruitiness, dried apricots, raisin, heavy caramel/toffee, pleasant booziness, vanilla, and earthy wood. Palate is simultaneously heavy yet silky smooth. Each sip yields an incredibly pleasant warming sensation without contributing any harshness. This beer is almost peerless in its quality, a must try.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours a muddy brown without much head. The aroma is dense and sweet with stewed fruit, wood, chocolate, and red wine notes. On the palate theres a strong sweetness with similar tastes to the nose. High alcohol but well integrated. Chewy mouthfeel makes large samples difficult, but that isn’t a bad thing. I want more.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 Update: 02/20/2016. 750ml bottle of Fruet 2012. Pours a dark caramel with a mild fizz with no head development. Smells of bourbon, brown sugar and caramel. Light carbonation, sweet bourbon with ripe fruit and vanilla finish. Heat is mellowing but could still use a bit more aging. Coming along ok. Boozy but carbinated. Vanilla, carmel with overpowering booze. Bourbon sweet with hot finish. Needs more time to age. On tap at the Bruery. Earlier Rating: 5/20/2013 Total Score: 4.5 Low carbination. Light bourbon aroma. Delicate caramel with booziness overtones. Smooth finish sugary aftertaste. Earlier Rating: 5/20/2013 Total Score: 4.5 Low carbination. Light bourbon aroma. Delicate caramel with booziness overtones.
