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.

Bottle @ ZZT, small sample. Hazy dark brown color, short head. Aroma of cookie, biscuit, slight spicy, red fruit, bit booze, oak. Quite sweet in taste, cookie, vanilla sweetness, bit boozy alcohol. Wonderful sipper and bringer of hangovers.

onceblind (6673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Deep hazy plummy Amber with a thin bubbly off beige head. Deep aroma of plums and raisins and a touch of cocoa and almonds and gentle sugary booze. Flavor is huge with booze, brown sugar, almond, toffee, pecan, cocoa, caramel, raisin, plum, and whiskey notes. Really complex and deep and amazing. Wow.

mansquito (4937) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Torst, Brooklyn tap: pours black with small head. Aroma is a whole lot of whiskey. A lot of vanilla. Taste is sweet and with a whole of whiskey and malt. Many malts. So many malts. Many flavors. Such complexity. Wowzers.

ElDesmadre (2925) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle. Rock solid body, oily, syrupy, very sweet. Brown sugar, pumpernikel, deep malty base. Lots of dried fruit and unripe red fruit. A light bourbon note but definitely not dominating. Great stuff.

NeuroPliny (238) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Poured from oversized bottle shared with JB. Pours opaque mahogany with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma intoxicating with notes of fig, bourbon, oak, molasses, vanilla, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavour is dark dried fruit, sherry, blackcurrant, caramel, bourbon, sour green apple, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts well balanced by hops. Moderate to full body. Complex and mellow. Awesome Solera-style ale now 8 years running. Looking forward to next year's release.

Dark brown with a small khaki head. Smells of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, and wood. Taste is the same with a lot of sweetness. Brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, figs and oak flavors with a rich complexity. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a thick body and low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (1025) - Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a small khaki head that settles to a film with sparse lacing. Aroma of molasses, vanilla, bourbon, and wood. Taste is much the same with a good deal of sweetness. Brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, figs and oak flavors with a rich complexity. Not as much booziness as you might expect but it is there and helps to tame the sweetness in the finish. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a thick body and low carbonation. Very good and well made. Everything you want from a barleywine/olde ale.

kambei70 (919) - - OCT 5, 2015
2014 bottle. Aroma of intense molasses, sticky malts, raisins, roasted amber malts, big alcohol on the nose, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Very darkened plum/magenta appearance and big alcohol legs. Big sticky malt sweetness overwhelms the palate. Huge, complex notes of cinnamon, roasted malts, raisins, plums, maple syrup, molasses, dark fruits, and toffee. Finish is bourbon and big barrel notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
