May is our anniversary month and we are excited to release Bois, our fifth 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.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Sample pour from a bomber bottle. Huge hop and fruit aroma, which leads me to think this is an American Old Ale. I didn’t pick up on the malts as much in the aroma. Appearance is a foggy orange and heavy amounts of foam on top. Taste was more apparently malted, but the hop side won out and dominated the flavor profile. Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and warm. Palate was fizzed and medium bodied. Overall a fantastic beer, easy drinking and bold at the same time. It lives up to the hype that you hope for in a rare and highly sought after selection

Marheb (1753) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Couleur bouetteuse, pas la plus sexy. Caramel, vanille, noisettes, bourbon, fruits foncés, une bonne claque d’éthanol, surtout en arôme. Splendide corpulence! Les sucres sont multiples, profonde complexité.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, frothy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is port, plums, raisins, cookie and caramel malt, oak, fresh dough, and black cherries. Flavor is sweet malts, booze, heavy dark fruit esters, oak, and a hint of vanilla; finishes like a good glass of port, lightly sweet and boozy. Full body and low carbonation.

Une bouteille de 750ml datée de 2012 et qui porte le numéro 06196. Merci Boul, tu as bien choisis. Même en Californie à plus de trente dollars ce n’est pas donné. Bombe brune orangée foncée avec une mince couche de mousse. Le Fruet n’est pas fluet, il y a du chocolat, du bourbon, du toffee dans ce nez. La bouche est chaude, sucrée, le bourbon est bien présent. La finale est sur les toffee, la tire d’érable et les fruits secs. Une bière extrême, à plus de 15% d’alcool, qui ne demande qu’à être partagée.

Une bouteille de 75 cl datée de 2012 et qui porte le numéro 06196. Une dégustation avec Yan et avec Boul, le propriétaire de cette bombe à 31.99$. Un liquide qui montre une belle robe rougeâtre sur laquelle flotte un petit col beige qui réussit à laisser quelques traces. Au nez, une capiteuse envolée de malts et de choses complètement fruitées dans un alcool tissé par la décadence du bourbon et de ses excessifs accompagnateurs. Au goût, une explosion caramélisée dans un feu ardent de tire d’érable épongée par le souvenir fruité qui traverse l’intensité contrôlée d’un bourbon qui ne cesse d’épater. Une bouche bien costaude. Une texture grasse et soyeuse qui s’accomode du mouvement adéquat des bulles. Une finale liquoreuse, complexe, légèrement chaude et pratiquement érotisante. Une proposition monstrueuse qui reste facile à boire en dépit de son intensité. Dans le domaine du spectacle.

Jesterdeal (1659) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at Stone Soup 2013 as the barrel-aged Coton. Aroma is bourbon vanilla notes, brown sugar, cherry, toffee and yum. Pours red and nasty (in a good way). Taste is equally delicious with nice toffee, chocolate, and brilliant sour cherry. There is an intensity throughout that is just wonderful and unforgettable. Great stuff!
