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.

Draft pour at Bambinos. Pours black with a dark fruit, raisin, slightly boozy aroma. Prunes, and graham cracker flavor, and super smooth considering the high ABV. Really nice dark fruit finish. Very special beer here. A must try.

VT (1701) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
750 ml "Fruet" bottle shared with the Quebec City crew. Pours a rubby reddish brown with a short lived beige head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, chocolate. Flavor is bourbon, wood, caramel, caramelized fruits. Finish is, again, bourbon, wood and vanilla. Full body, weak carbonation. Unbalanced, as in, way too much bourbon.

(bottle - cheers to ferris for this one!) murky ruby-brown colour with no head. aroma of brown sugar, honey and alcohol, with a light salmon fattiness, vanilla, treebark and some caramel. flavour is mostly fudge, caramel and brown sugar, with a heavy sweetness and some oxidation, quite boozy in the finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

So far each year of the AV ale has improved, IMHO, though this year’s is neglegible. The added complexity is a little offset by a roughly 10% jump in ABV, which seems like overkill. Though deifinitely a big, sweet, sipper, it is not overly hot (but caught up with me quick like). Fruit and malt, bourbon and vanilla, oak...another year, another super nice beer

Taster at Strong Beer Fest. Pours murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is amazing, molasses, bourbon... Flavor adds raisin, date. Bourbon and oak come through in the finish. Very nice!

Maltser85 (316) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Dark murky brown, sweet, oak, vanilla, malty nose. Translates to the taste. It is so smooth, even at nearly 17%...don’t even notice it. Awesome

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle - Lots of dark sugars, raisins and dark fruit. Cloudy copper brown with almost no head. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, pecan and even more dar sugar. Very mellow and tasty, deserving of the high rating.

This beer is insanely good! Barrel taste licks the molasses heavy beer tenderly! Better than many beers in top 50. Epic!
