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.

Brownish pour from bottle at Jensen park. Carmel and whiskey flavor, sweet and creamy. Oak and maybe some smoke. Super tasty and hides the big abv well

Draft pour at malt and vine, got a bottle a bit ago, wanted to try a taster to get a Idea of how long to age it. And after sampling it, probably going to be a little bit. Very dark amber pour, very sweet aroma, this beer has tones of flavor, very sweet taste. Needs some age, but I love the taste so far, can’t wait to try it again. Will re-rate a aged version.

On tap at Churchkey, Washington, DC. I’ve had the 2013 in a bottle but the 2015 draft is a bomb. They’ve blended years 1-7 with 2015 and the result is an amazing oak aged strong ale. This brew defines the tern "sipper". I’m not going to narrow down taste, mouthfeel, etc. If you like old ales, barleywines, and the like, get your hands on this guy. You won’t be disappointed.

Had on tap at the source on 5/8/15. Pours dark brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is bourbon and some oak and lots of dark fruits - figs, plums, raisins. Really this and sweet. Flavor follows and is sticky sweet dark fruits, with bourbon and oak. Come caramel and toffee also. This, chewy mouthfeel. Silky smooth. About 3 ounces was enough. Nice beer.

Bottle at porch nite shared with Brisben and Raith. Pours a mahogany brownish red with one finger of thin off white foam. Aroma is very malty and lots of oakey bourbon barren aromas. Flavor follows and is really sweet. Lots of maltiness, lots of dark fruits, and slight tartness. Sour cherries. Very sweet. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice beer.

Lothore (597) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a thin, off white head. Huge bourbon and brown sugar notes in the nose. Dark chocolate, bourbon, caramel, hints of berry, vanilla and oak. Mouthfeel is thick with ample carbonation. Extremely drinkable for the alcohol content. Delicious old ale.

Spicy alcohol notice, bourbon, sweet caramel malts, sweet caramel, raisins, toffee, prunes, cacao, vanilla, Dries apricots in the finish. Very good. Way and way better as the sucre cognac

Johnsense (1041) - - MAY 3, 2015
Dark pour, sizeable head. Slight alcohol warming while drinking this. Maple syrpu in aroma and taste, dark caramel, sugary, bourbon barrel prominent but not overpowering. Dessert beer, and one that needs to be sipped.. That 17% alcohol is noticeable.
