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.

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.

Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of caramel and toffee. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Delicious beer.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark red-amber color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of bourbon and oak notes, as well as a good bit of maple. The flavor is very similar. The maple and bourbon notes really come through up front. Unlike the non-barrel-aged version of this beer I have tried (Papier), the alcohol is not well hidden. I also get some vanilla and caramel malt notes, as well as a hint of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bourbon and fudge nose, boozy. Dingy brown, thin yellow head. Dates are predominant. Chocolate and caramel also present. Bourbon is ever present. Syrupy sweet, viscous, and hot. It is a bit better when warm.

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Dark caramel with good, foamy, tan head / Big, rich nose of caramel, bourbon, coconut, chocolate, and fruit cake / Full body, chewy and sweet, good cover of the big alcohol, with the giant malts well balanced by hopping, and long finish / Flavors of fresh caramel, bourbon, coconut, chocolate, cream, date, raisin, and orange / Here’s a beer for aging, but mighty fine today. Apologies for the .1 point deduction.

Tallahassee, Fl - at drowland’s 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to Blazer06. Dark brown pour, off-white head. Sweet aroma, hints of chocolate and dates. Flavor is similar with a chocolate and date profile. Hints of port, some toffee in the back end. Could be cloying if I had to drink the whole bottle - a sample was just enough. Slight booziness in the finish. Thickish mouthfeel.
