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 - 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.

On tap at the Bruery. My favorite brew from the Bruery yet. Smells of bourbon vanilla bean shooting out from the start. At first subtle tastes of creamy biscuits, but then a slight spice note again coming back to bourbon and vanilla. I can’t believe this brew is 15.5% I loved this one!

rood (56) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2013
If you want to smell & taste musty vanilla, bourbon, bad medicinal drugs like linctus (cough medicine), alcohol sweetness, honey, caramel and alchohol warmth, this is your beer. Not complex. Very boring, so one-dimensional. Price €25/quality ratio: below par. I don’t think this is beer.

Bottle to glass. Dark mahogany Brown appearance with a thin light khaki head. Nose is sweet caramel, toffee, lots of Bourbon, and some savory saucy notes. Tastes very smooth. Sweet caramel and candy balanced by Woody Bourbon wrapping everything up. Some salty savory bites in there too. Nice and warming. Smooth semi carbonated mouth feel.
