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.

On tap at the Bruery’s 2nd Anniversary party. Side by side with regular Coton. I like this better, mostly because I like the additional sweetness the barrel lends. It also seems a bit smoother, though both are boozy. Sweet buttery BA aroma. Caramel and butterscotch notes. Very good.

Dasilky1 tasting. Dec 13th 2009. 750mL bottle opened by WeeHeavySD. Thanks Jon! Brown amber color. Great barrel buttery aroma. Lots of throat burn, and surprizingly smooth. Surprized to hear it was 16%. Sweet brown sugar taste. Flatish, but who cares. I didn’t even notice until the end of my glass.

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.

Backlog. Draft at Tap and Handle. Reddish brown appearance. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark malts and some light fruity esters. Similar flavor, heavily sweet with other minor complexities throughout. The alcohol is mostly hidden. A pretty good sipper.

750mL bottle as "Fruet". Poured a lovely shade of burgundy with a short, looser beige head. The aroma was rich, with deep vinous notes, dark fruit, vanilla, and bourbon leading.. very strong peppery alcohol on the back of the nose.. dark chocolate and figs if you dig deep. The flavor found peppery bourbon and vinous notes on the tip of the tongue, with dark fruit jam, molasses, berries, and a touch of maple behind.. sweet bourbon, crisp oak, and jammy dark fruits on the long, belly-warming finish. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. very coating (in a good way).. great stuff!

This is a complex tasting beer and has lots of kick hides the alcohol very well. The Bruery has done it again another all around great great from all aspects.

BA tasting. Pours a clear golden brown. No head. Aroma of caramel vanilla light dark fruits. Taste is sweet and boozy. One of the better Bruery beers I have had.

Thanks cards04 for sharing this. Very much like an intense sweet barley wine I would say. Probably more on the sweet side than I would prefer but a well crafted beer to be sure. I guess that’s why it’s called sucre because of how sweet it is.
