COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
May is our anniversary month and we are excited to release Sucre, our sixth 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 yearís production, providing more complexity and depth of character that comes with age.

Editorís Note: This is the entry for The Brueryís Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

kathouse (927) - Nevada, USA - APR 14, 2013
Medium hazy brown with a quickly dying foam. Love the aroma! Golden Graham cereal, brown sugar, bourbon, caramel, and heavy cream. Full and warm from the alcohol. Oak and bourbon flavors are rich with molasses, toffee, and dark fruits. Finish is deliciously sweet and fruity. Loved every version of this.

Bottle at the John=Jim Den Haag tasting, Den Haag. Poured a very dark brown with a thin broken head. The aroma is rich, fruity and alcoholic. The flavour is huge bitter, lots of alcohol and liqourice, This really is a super beer and Iíd love to pair this beer with some good food. A super beer.

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle @ ABC Beers Jim=John tasting. Hazy brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma full of bourbon, ripe fruits, bready yeast, leather, oak, vanilla, alcohol and loads of bourbon. Flavor is very sweet and warming, but still the alcohol is well hidden. Loads of bourbon, smooth and very well balanced. Amazing brew. Lovely.

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a murky amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of rich caramel malts, dark fruits, wood barrels and candied sugar. Flavour is a diabetes bomb, full of nastily cloying residual sugars, caramel, dark fruits and light wood. Another nasty diabetes bomb from this highly overrated brewery. Gross Ė drain pour.

radarsock (885) - Vermont, USA - MAR 20, 2013
StFun supplied. Many thanks! 751 mL bottle which when poured, displayed a wooded darkish ruby brown with a quickly-diminishing head that soon turned to an off-white ring. Smells wonderful; itís of fudge, funked yeasts, caramelized raisins, blueberry preserves, cookie dough, tape, and brown sugar, lots of it! Tastes good, but not as dimensional as its nose: caramel syrup, toffee, American yeast, hops, bourbon, booze, and sourdough. Earth and pumpkin seeds by swallow. Ends slightly sour and salty, with oak and ash peaking underneath. Itís good, but overwhelmingly sweet, thereís no denying this. Kind of reminds me if someone were to take a Canadian whisky, water it down, and age it with pretzels and algae in gin barrels. Obviously, by mid-palate Iím getting my fair share of earthy and pungent notes. Not terrible, but I was expecting a lot more.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Fantastic. Fantastic. Fantastic. Nose has you thinking sour. Taste blows you away, dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, port, candy...just...wow. Nice body and carb. Just...wow. Edit: The previous rate for for a late season Fruet and stands. Recently had this years Bois and must say itís not as smooth and a bit boozy around the edges. Carb is much more lively and I think maybe some time will put this meh beer into the outstanding company of itís predecessor. 3.8 overall
