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.

On tap at Burnhearts. Wow! Dark brown with a thin brown fading crown. Aroma is complex and boozy and rather inviting. I just kept smelling it as it was so damn good. Smelled like fresh wort on the open with plenty of grains and alcohol. Upon warming oak, roasted barley, vanilla, caramel, maple and sugar came through. Taste was sweet and hot with maple, chocolate, cedar and other assorted woods, candi sugar, spices, toffee with a boozy and spicy finish. It took me a long time and many sips to conquer this one but it just prolonged the enjoyment!

Great oak scent with a caramel candy and bruised fig. Cloyingly sweet body adds levels of headaches to my tomorrow life, but tonight this is nice, mellow and the old ale is a nice base. I'd say the 15%ABV is well hidden but burnt rubber may be well hidden by this overly caramel sweetness. Some melon,molasses and bandaid lost in the mash of swollen toffee. Nice.

Bottle @ Matt’s house from our Reserve Society membership. Pours a murky orangish brown appearance with a thin tan head. A bit oxidized, caramel, herbal/woody, mild dark fruity, light grape aroma. Actually, pretty nice rich toffee, bourbon flavor that has a pretty warm finish with plenty of vanilla.

Bottle shared at local tasting, tasted next to the brandy version, pours pitch black with a light brown head, tons of sugar and sweetness on the nose, good amount of maple sugar and malt, the flavor is pretty much the same and what you would expect out of this thing, tons of caramel and sweetness, had this along with the brandy and chocolate rain within 20 minutes of each other. I feel like I should see a doctor or something.
