COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours dark brown with a qute thin tanned beige head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, dark fruity malts, hints of tar; its just magnificent. Heavy sweet, boozy, vanilla and bourbon, honey. This is just exquisite! Smooth oily texture, flat carbonation, full bodied. This is probably the best beer i’ve had in a while. Pretty close to perfect actually. The bourbon barrel is so well integrated, the silky mouthfeel and the warm flavors. I would easily buy some bottles if i get the chance

Bottle pours dark brown with thin brown head. Aroma malts, bourbon, dark fruits, faint sour. Taste caramel and molasses, vanilla, bourbon, wood. Thick palate with alcohol burn, low carbonation. Boozy finish. Another great beer from the Bruery.

I love this Bois series. This one is amazing as well. Such a complex and tasty beer, with an ever evolving taste. Great.

Bottle shared by esp0r with me and edvard, april 26th 2014. Dark brown body with a thin brown head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, roast, perfectly balanced! Sweet vanilla and caramel taste with raisins, roasted malt, plums, orange, chocolate, wine notes, complex with new layers of taste every sip. An outstanding beer!

750 mL bottle shared at an impromptu tasting at Tippins. Thanks Dom! The pour is darker garnet-ish brown with a touch of off-white head and some great lacing that’s left. The aroma is delightfully sweet. There is a strong molasses presence to accompany the bourbon, and the dark fruits come through beautifully. There is a touch of vanilla and caramel on the deep inhale, with a glorious bourbon presence. This has the makings for a wonderful Old Ale. The taste starts out with the good bourbon and vanilla and moves through a great dark fruit character with a full molasses flavor bursting through on the back end. There is a light bourbon burn on the far back, and it’s just delightful. The mouth feel is perfect. It’s pleasantly thick, viscous, with just enough carbonation to keep a light head there. The aftertaste is just wonderfully light and bourbony to go with a sweet vanilla and molasses lingering note. Delightful!

2013 bottle. This is not really my thing but it’s definitely interesting. Heavy, thick and sweet. Strikes me as a beer version of port or sherry, which makes sense considering the solera blending. Chocolate, bourbon, caramel, raisin, barrel flavors, boozy warmth, Powerful stuff, worth a try. Two more sips and I won’t be able to type.

Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Rating a bottle of Fruet as this seems to be aliased. Pours brown with a short head. Nice bourbon, chocolate and toffee aroma. Lovely taste with all of the aroma elements but adding a generous helping of dark fruitiness. Alcohol heat lurking but not oppressive; fairly drinkable for the ABV. Very nice old ale that seems to walk the line between imperial stout and barley wine.

Drank during an awesome tasting at Thijs’ place 28-3-2014. Very sweet, almost like a barley wine. Carbonation, present alcohol taste. Chocolate after taste. Magnificent beer.

ekstedt (5402) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle (75 cl), courtesy of rlgk. CLear chestnut, no head. Intense malty aroma with raisins, fudge, and some chocolate, along with alcohol and some vanilla oak. Full bodied, low carbonation. Sweet, low to medium bitterness. A bit over the top.
