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.

Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours murky brown with a thin tan ring of head. Nose is caramel, warm and sharp booze with big bready and dark malt. Real sweet and sugary taste, yeasty and bready. Thinnish with low carbonation. Huh.

Monster bourbon aroma, with oak, and fruits. Boozy and almost burning in the nose. Complex, with oak, bourbon, vanilla and sweets taking on the palate. Big and strong.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 This is Fruet and not Bois. Nothing less than a perfect beer! Dark fruits, bourbon, caramel, toffee, sugar on the lips, vanilla. This is heaven!

Caramel brown pour with an aroma of caramel, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavor upfront is caramel, bread, with some bourbon. Very sweet at the back end, which is the only drawback to this beer.

Gerbeer (2353) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
750 ml bottle. POurs a dark red brown with light head. Aromas of caramel and bourbon, roasted malts and brown sugar, woody and sweet. very complex flavors, wood barrels, bourbon, candy sugar, light spice and smoke, alcohol and malts. Still quite sweet. Quite hot. Like a good American barley wine.

RBSG 2013. It has been a long time since I had an old ale. Dark brown and very low carbonation. Sweet malt and caramel. Very high alcohol, I can smell it and feel it on my tongue.

Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of heavy malt, caramel, bourbon and oak. Taste is boozy, vanilla, bourbon and oak. A lot of booze on this one, malty and boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle - 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Clear dark brown pour with a tan head. Big bourbon and vanilla aroma with a very nice supporting cast of wood and caramel. Dark fruits and sticky vanilla at the start of the aroma. Bready and dry malt middle and a very sweet and vanilla-laden bourbon finish. Didn’t taste anything like 15.5%.

Sampled at Kennys. Thanks Jason. Black. This is all about wood and malts. Vanilla is so good. Dark fruit. So good.
