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 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.

On tap at the Blue Dog, Chalfont. Poured a muddy amberish color with almost no head. Boozy. Bourbon, caramel, vanilla, malty, sweet, dark fruits, brown sugar, wood, more bourbon and more booze.

Holy crap, on tap at Eureka Burger in Santa Barbara. Super strong (15.5%), tastes like whiskey, an intense sipping beer.

I cant stand wax but this one will probably age well so it gets a pass. Dark reddish brown, light head, some lacing and retention. Boozy aroma with darker fruit notes, caramel, vanilla. Full bodied, thick, syrupy, sweet. Alcohol hidden much better than Melange 3. This beer is monstrous, but is much better balanced than other beers at this alcohol content. Win

Draft at the pony in NYC. God know how much its going to cost but I was happy to try this without opening my bottle. Hints of chocolate bourbon some vanilla and a lot of awesomeness. Very good beer but I'm sure it's over priced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a very dark murky brown color with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma, strong cherry notes, some plum and fig, lots of bourbony oakiness as well, strong caramel notes, and quite boozy. Wow, I am blown away by the taste. My first impression is that it’s a boozy maple syrup. Lots of bourbon and booze, some nice oak and lots of caramel, maple, syrupy sweet, figs, and maybe a light fruity hop character in there too. Wow, blown away by this beer. The barrels do incredible things to this, so many flavors melded together wonderfully.

Bottle shared by keith, pours purple black with thin to medium off white head, tiny bubbles, not much lacing. Aromas and taste of plum, fig, bourbon, dark fruit, vanilla. So smooth and flavorful for the percentage. Really well done big beer from the Bruery.

Chocolate brown pour. Bourbon, malt aroma with alcohol. Big flavor of bourbon, oak, sweet dark fruits, and malt. Full body. Super sweet.

Bottle at Eric’s with some southern gentleman in Dallas. Pour is murky brown with a small head that quickly dissipated. Caramelly, woodsy, big coconut, sweet vanilla, raisiny, figgy, pruney, and bready aroma. Taste is big caramel, bready, coconut, piney, big wood, vanilla, white chocolate, bourbon, and whiskey with a touch of heat on the finish. Slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not bad, but a bit too big and hot to be excellent for me.

The very best in my opinion. Drank smooth, alcoholic without being overpowering. Subtle notes of everything but the kitchen sink, perfectly matched and combined. Leather, caramel, bread, chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla, wood, leaves, nuts and citrus. All went down like a nectar, soothing and I dare say, perfect?

Bottle; Pour is fairly murky mahogany with a fairly mild off white head in this glass. Fruit esters come through on the nose, with some booze present. Caramel, sweet bread, mild bourbon, that comes across like a floral bouquet. The flavor profile is sticky and sweet to be certain, though I was expecting slightly more heft than this. Vanilla and toffee initial, moving to bourbon and light booziness. 15.5% comes across nicely overall, with dark fruit, florals, and oak near the finish. An excellent one here overall - the blend comes across nicely to me
