UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 Stratford tasting @ Cletus house. Pours a mahogany body with a tan bubbly head. Effervescent bourbon, oak, and a caramel woodiness. Chewy etoh latent butterscotch and dark fruit. To bad once you get more then a few ounces into this its way too hot and difficult to keep drinking. Flavor profile was nice initially.

On tap. Opaque, warm orangey brown with a creamy light brown head. Intense aroma of caramel and Bourbon. Very full-bodied, lots of caramel, wood and vanilla. Has a warming alcohol burn in the finish. 060709

(DC Local Gathering, 750ml bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) - Dark brown, thin light tan. Bold sherry and oak aromas ride a thick caramelized fig and raisin foundation. Deep molasses and dry wood flavor balance on notes of stewed dark fruit and toasty caramel from beginning to end. ABV heat shines bright. Full bodied with soft carbonation. 1-2 years of cellar time could make this extraordinary as it’s just a bit too hot right now for my liking…

On tap at the brewery. Reminded me of an incredibly amped up version of a Belgian dubel. Complex and rich, but maybe a bit more syrupy wert flavor than I would have hoped for. Well done, but not exceptional.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2009
750ml bottle from southbay....pours a dark fig brown with just the slightest trace of a bubbly thin head that quickly disappears.... aroma of rich caramel, toffee, prunes, and raisins. kind of hard to detect any barrel....flavors are predominantly sweet with emphasis on dark fruit and caramel malt. a slight tart fruitness in the finish. abv is very well hidden for such a strong beer. very low carbonation level but it is not non-existent....a sweet rich, dark fruity sipper.

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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2009
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!
