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.

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.

Maple syrup, walnut boozy bourbon aroma. Deep murky brown with soft off white head. Boozy bourbon character, quite sweet with a bold malty back bone and strong maple syrup and walnut notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle shared by J at Havana. Poured a murky mud brown with a smaller tight foamy beige head. Aroma is sickingly cloying sweetness, raisin, caramel, paste, figs, dates, alcohol, molassess and touch of bourbon. Big body, strong carbonation and a lingering hot sweetness. Flavor is better than the aroma, nice sweet notes, syrup, raisin, dates, molasses, alcohol, light bourbon, woody. This is a BIG SWEET beer. Good, sure....Amazing not!!

Draft. R U joking. Who sends kegs of this to Florida? Nose is chocolate, booze, and caramel. Pour is dark brown with a medium off white head. Taste is dominated by booze and toffee/caramel. Slightly warming but surprisingly smooth for 16%.

Az egyik legexkluzívabb megjelenésű palack, amihez sörös pályafutásom alatt alkalmam volt hozzájutni, a beltartalom nagyszabású jellegéhez pedig a legcsekélyebb mértékű kételyem sem fért. Kólaszínű testet emlegetni egy efféle kaliberű főzet esetében talán szentségtörésnek tűnhet, a mélygesztenye karakter és a hamar elillanó habgyűrű jól ismert vendégek a magas alkoholtartalmú, nehéz formátumú amerikai darabok esetében. Marcipánmasszás bevonattal átszőtt fahordós, átütő erejű alkoholos aromái semmi esélyt nem hagynak a nyugalomra, szinte felperzselik a levegőt a whiskys illatjegyek. Nincs más hátra, mint hogy olajos és izgalmakkal teli kortyaiba vessük magunkat, melyeket csupán jelzés értékkel szellősít meg egy szerény szánsavháló. Kirobbanó erejű, mégis mérnöki módon megszerkesztett karakter, melyet nem győzünk csodálni, erejének nagysága miatt azt várjuk, mikor hatalmasodik el az alkoholfok okozta élmény az ízkompozíció összeszedettségén; a rendezettség azonban nemigen akar szűnni, a hatalmas energia kordában van tartva. Modernebb hangulattal átitatott, nemes quadrupel jellemvonásai elevenednek meg, vaníliás-fás karakter érett zamatai mazsolás, szilvabefőttes, tonnás súlyú ízjegyekkel találkoznak. A végletekig érett gyümölcsök legjava komoly alkoholok jótékony pártfogásában teljesedik ki, kókuszos tejcsokoládé színesíti a testet, majd egy hosszú utóéletű, sötét hangulatban vibráló likőrösen karcos jelleg teszi fel a koronát a feledhetetlenül egyedi kompozícióra. Az efféle italok a sörös tapasztalatok mérföldköveiként szolgálnak, általuk új szintre helyezhetjük a különböző típusú főzetekről alkotott képünk minőségét. Egyértelmű, hogy a típus általam kóstolt darabjainak legjobbika, feledhetetlen élmény volt minden egyes kortya.

Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Dark brown, small white head. Aroma is alcohol, slight barrel, sweet. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, tangy bourbon, vanilla, some alcohol coming through, low bitterness. Lives up to the name.

Bottle labelled as "Fruet". Muddy brown colour, with light white head that dissipates fairly quickly, slightly thinnish appearance which is a bit surprising for a beer of this magnitude. Aroma is heavy on the bourbon, vanilla, toffee, raisins, and a hint of tartness. Taste is carmel, biscuit, vanilla, raisins, finishes sweet with some heat from the booze, medium bodied, light carbonation. Great beer, not nearly as sweet and boozy as my friends had me thinking it was going to be.

BlackHaddock (4367) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured a dark brown with a thin beige head. The nose was an interesting semi-sweet affair with caramel, vanilla, whiskey and wood esters. The taste had the same feel with added alcohol and a mixed fruit salad in the body. Fairly sweet overall, but a lovely blend of obviously good base beers.
