COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: MAR 17, 2014 2013, so its been sitting close to a year. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. Small lasting ring of tan head around glass. Phenomenal aroma. Lovely bourbon barrel character. Fine bourbon here. So complex. Just awesome bourbon notes with vanilla and wood, along with caramel and dark fruit. Not boozy. Lighter full body. Sweet. Awesome bourbon character!! Super smooth. Great bourbon warming. Bourbon. BOURBON!!!! A special beer to cap off a special day...

HMOG 2014 donation. A little much on the alcohol still. Definitely needed to split this with someone and thanks to HMOG for giving me the venue to do that. A little spice on the finish not before a an alcohol burn though. Soy sauce in the aroma. Red fruit plum and soy sauce again in the flavor.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a hazy chocolate brown that goes from light at the top to nearly sable at the bottom. Sour fruit dominates the tempting aroma. Flavor is fruity, sour but not mouth-puckering, yeasty with a malty underpinning. Smooth texture is firm though not too fizzy. Another good one at the HMOG!

750ml bottle pours a clear brown color. Bourbon flavors are so smooth and blend in with the malty sweetness. Great cigar beer.

This is great. Pours a sherry color with strong vinous aromas... Very sherry like. Flavors are sweet with some tang and strong liquore like flavor.

Concealer (646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Tap at hop and pie. Cloudy reddish plum with a small amber head that does not last. Aromas of dark fruit, plum, raisin, caramel, and bourbon. Flavor is the same with a warming finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Lingering dark fruit and bourbon.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Fruet vs Bois at Bruce’s Birthday Bozze-Fest. They pour deep ruby-brown with a small beige head. The nose is woody, must, leather armchair, vanilla, bourbon and brown bread. The taste is wood, leather, raisin, orange peel, bourbon, vanilla, grape skin, vinous, candy, booze, leather, earth and fig with warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Overall the bois is fruitier, jammy and more vinous. Pretty big, intense stuff either way. Solid, but pretty heavy duty stuff.

Another great gift for the big brew bachelorette party. Almost like a Porto sangria carbonated blende of goodness. Again only one bottled poured. So just got a sipper. But great stingy raisin flavor great balance, light on fizzy. But such a stupendous flavor for what was offered. If I had the fullb750 I’d bev burnt toast. This type of brew will get the Venus from woman and the men from mars to hook it up!

750 ml bottle from Reserve Society gold wax top. Dark dirty brown pour without any head. Nose is molasses, figs, toffee and bourbon nuance. Flavor is rich and complex. Port wine hints mixed with toffee, bourbon vanilla, oak barrel, dark fruit hints and levels of bourbon goodness. The heat is mild even at 15%. The warming sensation after the sip is very light and sensual. This beer will age beautiful. Borderline sweet right now but it’s not cloying. it is completely fantastic right now. The depth of flavor is awesome.
