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.

750, capped and waxed. Pours black with a dense and.creamy tan head. Big fruity nose, sweet and intense. Creamy thick sticky bubbly body. Wood, fruit, and chocolate on the mid palate. Much sweeter than most old ales...delectable.

Poured into a snifter. Bottle number 1,227 of Barrel Aged Cuir. Big thanks to Callmecoon for this. 5.0 A: Dark brown color. Two and a half fingers of tan creamy/frothy head. Retention is infinitely impressive for a beer of this magnitude. It stays around a long ass time. A small ring of lacing is left. 4.5 S: That additional 70% in a barrel makes all the difference. This reeks of bourbon and fortunately the barrel aging was done extremely well. Leathery, peat, and spicy with melon and apple fruitiness. Somehow very minimal booze. Underneath there is brown sugar, caramel, plum and raisin fruitiness. The base beer comes off a lot more mellow that the regular Cuir, which is mellow to begin with. Still, very nice. 4.5 T: Like the nose, the bourbon makes it’s presence known. Same flavors as in nose. However, the base beers is allowed to come out and it comes out strong. Tons of brown sugar to start. Raisin, plum, tobacco, date, and fig fruitiness. Caramel, molasses, vanilla, oak. Somehow this is less boozy than the regular. The only thing preventing this from getting that perfect score is the sweetness. There’s simply too much of it. But, that is the way of the Bruery. 4.0 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy. Chewy with a mild amylase build-up. 4.0 D: Very tasty sipper/desert beer. A bit sweeter than I prefer, but sometimes you are in the mood for something like that. Tonight is one of those nights. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-17-2012 04:03:52

Christian (11028) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 21, 2012
Bottle at Christian Firtal. Brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark sugar, caramel, raisins, vineous alcohol, even fortified wine notes. Sweet caramel and dried fruit flavour with a touch of fruity tartness. A bit hot, vineous alcohol. Lots of oak in the aftertaste

nyindiansfan (463) - rochester, New York, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle pours a darker brown white head. Smells and tastes of bourbon caramel molasses dark fruit sweet with a booze end. Not much for hops. Not bad I prefer the 75% mix one better less sweet. Bit fizzy on tongue. Not bad but not as good as other too sweet.

BA Coton - thanks to Steve for the pour. Pours out dark mahogany brown with a touch of off white foam. Nose is rich bourbon, vanilla, deep sweet malts, dark fruit. Taste follows the nose - it’s a sweet, complex, rich drinking experience. Palate is velvety smooth. Loved this beer - one of the few beers that’s better than BA 4th D

From notes. First reviewed 1/7/2012. Bottle marked BA Cuir. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. Thanks to bauermj for bringing this over. The pour is a full caramel color with a tight off-white head. Caramel, marshmallows, bourbon, vanilla, oak. The taste is very smooth. Vanilla, caramel malt, and then a toasted malt leads into a strong, boozy bourbon flavor. Vanilla, spice and oak help to finish out with a bit of maple and alcohol bite. Creamy with a medium level carbonation, and a body on the full side. Given the 14.5% ABV though, "on the full side" is pretty light. There is a grainy nature to it. This is quite a good beer, but it does not quite top the list of best old ales I have had. Bourbon barrel fourth dementia is better.

ChrisOs Early December Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy tan head. Smooth semi dry palate. Rich malt with lots of sweet bourbon. Toasted coconut and a trace of vanilla. Sweetish bourbon finish. Semi dry. Decent but even after 18 months probably a bit young.

7th February 2014
Fruet bottle share at Bruce’s birthday bash. Bruce produces a Bruery?! Seems a lot more mellow this version - Sweetish malt, sweet caramel, little vanilla and light tangy dried fruits. Warming afterglow but no real heat in the mouth,
