2010 2nd Anniversary Ale. This sturdy beer marks our second year, an incredible year of growth and learning experiences. Together may our supporters, our brewery, and this beer grow in complexity and refinement over the years.

On tap at brewery. First of all, believe the hype, this beer is fantastic. Pouring dark brown with a small beige head, the aroma is a massive blend of dark dried fruit, caramel malt, and chocolate. Palate is full, with moderate carbonation that adds an element of balance to Papier’s drinking experience. Flavors are a complex mélange of figs, plumes, prunes, caramel, maple syrup, and wood. On the latter flavor element, there is a distinctive maturity that characterizes this beer’s flavor that only wood-aging can provide. The alcohol is extremely well hidden/blended in, as is the case with a great many of Bruery’s beers. This is just such a standout, I am hoping to one day try the bourbon, rye and brandy versions.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with crimson highlights, the head is beige and small and quickly fades to a fine film. The nose is bold and complex with sweet dark fruits, toffee, nuts, whiskey and barleywine style malts. The flavor is equally complex with the bourbon being the first taste you notice followed by a oak, plums, walnuts and caramel. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and a bit oily. The finish is long with lingering bourbon. Overall: This is one heck of an anniversary brew, well done patrick.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2011 Young bottle. Pours a very lightly hazy, dark, copper-brown color. Clearly intentionally light in carbonation, the thick body is nearly still, with just a thin, bubbly blanket at the surface. Though no lacing remains behind, thick sheets slowly drip down the glass, coating it well. The nose is incredibly complex, with intensely deep notes of caramel, burnt toffee, bronzed brown sugar, fig, and raisin all showing strong. Diving further, hints of hazelnut, plum, and woody, oaky bourbon come through with a boozy, cordial like feel. The flavor mirrors the aroma, intensely malty, with massive cara-toffee malt and dark, sweet fruit, along with a hint of cocoa and heaps of vanilla. Though they comprise a relatively small part of the blend, the bourbon and brandy barrels assert themselves strongly, imparting woody, fruity notes. The body is full and sweet, hot from the alcohol and cloying, lacking in carbonation. Overall, though it is tasty in small doses, it’s generally overbearing and far too big. A few ounces is all I’d ever want.

Nice dark chestnut color with scant head but it still looks good. The smell is a little alcoholic but also quite intriguing because I can’t place it but its good. The flavors were fruits, sweet, delicious old ale without a hint of the high alcohol. The alcohol is well masked but i was still glad I split the bottle. I usually don’t like beers with this much alcohol but this was good stuff. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-11-2009 06:11:55

Well this is by far my favorite Bruery beer to date. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is really nice with booze, oak, caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch. Flavor is loaded with oak, bourbon, caramel, toffee and some alcohol. Damn I thought this was badass! Finally the Bruery impresses me! YES!

Bottle from Southbay. A beautiful bottle. Really like the classic-style label. Anyway, this beer is verrrry similar to bourbon barrel angel’s share. Very light carbonation, very complex body, very spicey/alcohol finish. Verrrry good.

Ungstrup (29957) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Entered to celebrate my rating number 13,400. Draft at the brewery. A dark brown beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, alcohol, bourbon, caramel, and wood. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, and medium notes of wood and alcohol, the latter burning lightly in the mouth, also light notes of bourbon, leading to a dry, woody, and alcoholic finish.

argo0 (11726) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2009
(DC Local Gathering, 750ml bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) Hazy mahogany body topped by no head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, chocolate, some spice, roast. Taste is sweet, boozy, some molasses, chocolate, Bourbon, light vinous. Sticky full body that’s way too boozy -- tastes like a 22% beer rather than a 14% one.

On tap at the Bruery.. Pours creamy red orange with a tan head.. Aroma is caramel, dates, booze and vanilla.. Taste was amazing with some caramel, dark fruits and a nice butteriness.. Full bodied with a smooth low carbonation.. Amazing!!!
