The Bruery Colonel Kernel
Bottle kindly shared by O, many thanks! Pours cloudy brown with beige head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, caramel, toffee. No corn here, just a big, big barleywine. Sweet and biscuity taste with caramel, booze and treacle. A lot of sweetness here, but a rich and big barley wine. Nice!

The Bruery Chronology: 6 Wee Heavy
Pours a pretty nut brown colour with no head. Noses hugely borbonny. Taste is also wildly barrel forward. Light scotch ale in the background. Toffee and light coffee.. Mouthfeel is fairly light and drinkable for the big bold flavours. Almost like a light scotch ale with a shot of cheap bourbon poured into it.. I dont hate it, but this is a bit too one dimensional for my personal preference.

The Bruery Chronology: 6 Old Ale
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is rich and malt forward with lots of caramel and toffee notes. Medium alcohol notes that work well behind the malt character. Medium light oak notes with moderate bourbon notes. Some raisin, fig and prune notes. Pours brown with a medium sized, thick, tan head that recedes moderately fast to a film that lingers on the edges. No lacing with long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with lots of caramel and toffee as well as some lighter toasted bread. Medium to medium high bitterness with a moderate alcohol note. Medium light bourbon notes with some light oak. Hints of hops. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer. I’m interested in seeing how this compares to the other bottles. Moderate bourbon but the oak character is light. Lots of sweet malt notes to hide the alcohol. I kind of wish the beer was somewhat lower in alcohol though.

The Bruery White Oak
750ml bottle. Clear cognac colour, with small, forthy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Woody, oaky aroma, hints of vanilla, a nuttily touch, hazelnut, nougat, some coconut as well. Taste is all along this line, good balance of rather subtle flavours, a slight predominance of oak.

The Bruery Melange #14
Aromas of big bourbon, toffee, figs, dark fruits, oak, caramel, dark malts, raisins, leather and burnt sugar. Pours blackish brown with a thin tan foam and medium lace. Taste brings complex dark fruits, raisins, licorice, figs, apricots and oak upfront. Bourbon is noticeable alongside leather, vanilla, caramel and nougat. Finishes with moderate booze and more dark fruits. Overall, pretty solid with a decent amount of bourbon and tons of dark fruits. A- rating.

The Bruery Ride That Bear
Capped 740 from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours a rather unusual brownish copper with a near white head. aroma is hoppy, but it makes me think a bit of burnt rubber. Pretty near full bodied. Flavor base is roasty malty, but not very sweet, and the huge amount of hop makes it seem relatively dry. Having great difficulty parsing the hops, but they are certainly present. The aroma still makes me think of cars spinning brodies. Flavor is good tho.

The Bruery Share This: Coffee
750mL bottle shared by Brian on 7/23/16.
Clear, mahogany brown body is topped by a small, drab tan head showing low retention.
Brown sugar, light red grape and lots of prune. Vanilla and honey sweetness is intense, with a huge honey nose. I like the vinousness and honey fermentation characteristics despite thishaving no honey. The coffee is super low key here. Citrus honey, with dark chocolate. No alcohol though and no flaws. Smells spicy/phenolic and mead-like.
Thin, stale coffee, with bread, alcohol, black pepper, huge grass and massively astringent black licorice. Dry, overly so, palate, with soft, malty notes and tight carbonation, but there’s just way too much black pepper and grassy astringent bitterness. The coffee is vegetal and beany. Very boozey as well.

The Bruery Chocolate Rain
Bottle shared thanks to KVN. Slight gusher. Almost black with light brown fizzy head. Massive vanilla and chocolate, brandy and bourbon, chocolate mousse, loads of sweet vanilla things with soft roasted malts, strong chocolate and booze. Crazy dessert notes with lots of alcohol. Very sweet and under medium bitter. Full bodied with alcoholic finish. Just massive, but the alcohol level is a bit ridiculous here, couldn’t finish a bottle between three people.

The Bruery Share This: Coffee
Bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, much love! Pitch black color, lasting bubbles of white head. Aroma is mostly large coffee with some creamer, light roast.

Flavor has a decent amount of roast. The coffee is intense but also lightly astringent. Maybe a tad over excoriated coffee? The alcohol is here but not overwhelming. All thing said, pretty decent. I love adjunct coffee stouts !

The Bruery Share This: Coffee
Pours a ruby to need dark brown/black. Initial aroma is nutty and fruity coffee, taste is slightly bitter but mostly sweet. Maybe some chicory too. The stout roastiness is pretty well covered up by the intensity of the coffee. Super super smooth for 12%.

The Bruery Jardinier
It pours golden-oranage and opaque. It has plenty of head and Belgian Lace. It has a funk smell that reminds me of some cheese. There is also a bit of lemon, spice, and floral elements. It has flavors of funk, floral hops, lemon, spice, and bread. It has a moderate light body with mild bitterness and high carbonation. Overall, a very funky Belgian Pale Ale without the normal moderate to high fruity esters.

The Bruery Tart of Darkness - Cherries & Vanilla
(En fût à la source): Un nez extrêmement vanillé et fruité qui ne laisse pas présager l’assaut d’acidité qui va suivre. La cerise, la vanille et le chocolat se fusionnent plutôt bien. Mission accomplie.

The Bruery White Oak
It pours golden-orange with a moderate off white head. The clarity is a bit hazy but clears up quite a bit as it warms. It has strong malt aromas with orange, caramel, wheat, and low aromas of oak and bourbon. It has a rich malt, sweet flavor. It is highlighted by caramel, honey, orange, oak, bourbon, and alcohol. The overall balance is towards the malt. It has a heavy body, not quite chewy, with a moderately high bitterness. It is fairly smooth in spite of the high alcohol content There is also a fair amount of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a malty rich balance beer with a complex blend of fruits that packs a solid alcohol punch, but is fairly smooth.
