COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thick and viscous. Boozey nose with bread and bourbon. Sweeter that expected with hints of maple and molasses. Very full mouthfeel. Finish lingers pleasantly.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle at RBSG. Pour is dark with tan head. Tons of bourbon and sweet caramel on the nose. Very sweet, but the bourbon helps balance it. Lots of brown sugar, some hot booziness. Really a great beer.

JStax (3551) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
750 ml bottle shared. Pours a dark copper with a thin beige head of foam. The aroma has a big bourbon presence. Taste is boozy and sweet. Pleasant mouthfeel for such a big beer.

Bacterial (2089) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Huge bourbon caramel toffee nose right when you open the bottle. Light tan head on top of a dark brown beer. Wonderful taste, sweet, caramel, brown sugar abound. Lots of heat too, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Deep marbled brown. Smells of sugar, caramel, and butterscotch. Sweet malts with a butterscotch bite. Big body.

That bl********dy wax!!! WHY? Sampled as Fruet Small receding yellow-cream head over totally hazy dark reddish-brown beer. Vinous nose, Bourbon, oakwood, vanilla. Chocolate and Bourbon, with a sharp alcoholic, nippy, not-quite-acidic finish, bit lactic acid-like. Belgian chocolates liquified. Without htis acidic touch, it would be outspokenly sweet. Very viscous, fiery alcoholheat, rich MF. Hot stuff...
