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.

750 ml bottle marked as Bourbon Barrel Fruet shared by DanielCoor. Pours a dark copper brown color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have big caramel, molasses, bourbon, vanilla, wood and alcohol. Some additional, dark chocolate and dark fruitiness come through. The ABV is noticeable, but doesn’t distract from the beer.

Fruity, plums and apples, with a barrel-aged effect that lends a punch of vanilla and a punch of bourbon. Hops are grassy, and they take a backseat to the caramel french-toast notes on the malts.

Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light tan head, settles to thin cap in minutes. Minimal to no lacing. Aroma is oaky, vanilla, boozy, mild hoppy and caramel. Flavor is surprisingly dark, oaky, slight roast, with a mildly chocolatey, oaky, vanilla finish. Fairly well conditioned, nice and mellow, blend of many flavors. Does an excellent job of masking the alcohol. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, and smooth texture. Mildly warming and alcoholic. A very good, non-characteristic old ale. Tasty, warming, smooth and delicious. Good for a beer, great for the style.

Bottle. Dark hazel brown, light fizzy head. Cherry, almond, vanilla, toffee nose. Fizzy body. Alcohol, almond, vanilla, nutty, definitely on the sweeter side but cut with a slight astringency from the alcohol. Reminds me of a madeira. Warm but not outlandish considering the abv. Great beer.

Caramel, bourbon, fruity yet slight tartness. Beautiful aroma in the nose and on the palette. Leaves you wanting more and more.

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