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.

ljthiessen (752) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy brown pour, beige head. Lots of oak and bourbon in the nose, butter and brown sugar too. Flavour is lots of brown sugar, caramel, bourbon. Very sweet, but enough alcohol and flavour to support it. Hides the ABV, but still boozy. Very very nice.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi. Dark brown. Hue chocolate aroma with vanilla, cookies, caramel. Sweet flavor with lots of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, nuts, cookies, some fruity note and some alcohol. Full-bodied. Great stuff.

ciocanelu (199) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 29, 2015
Very dark brown pour, not quite black with a decent head for the high ABV. Aroma hits hard with a lot of barrel character and dark dried fruit. Taste starts with sweet malts but gets quickly replaced by a quite intense astringent tartness. It finishes with dried dark fruit notes like figs, prunes and dates. Body doesn’t feel very heavy but the alcohol is quite present and makes it a bit hard to drink. Overall it’s a very complex and interesting beer but the weird tartness in the middle taste and the intense alcohol heat keeps it away from being really great.

Shaker showing copper rust and sparse foam. The nose shows intense bourbon, smoke, and vanilla. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Strong alcohol burn on palate, bourbon and vanilla in the background. Slight Barley wine sweetness and alcohol burn on finish.

Habanero (3314) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a small off-wite head. Aroma of yeast, dried dark fruits, wood, vanilla and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft to flat carbonation. An excellent Ale. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours dark brown with little to no head and no lacing to speak of either. Aroma of leather, vanilla, oak, bourbon, some raisins and plums. Flavor is more of the same, with a hint of alcohol heat at the end. Excellently balanced and the alcohol heat is surprisingly well masked at 16.2% ABV.

Pours more brown than Amber. Aroma is sweet and alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt and sugar with hints of vanilla and bourbon.

This was 7 years in the making but worth the wait. Very strong. Great appearance and taste. Very smooth for something with such a high ABV. A real sipping beer that you want to share with friends. Being this strong you need to share it with friends. Lives this beer.
