10 ounce pour - $6.00 at The Porter in Atlanta, Georgia. Appearance: Served up a hazed, light straw-hued body with half an inch of white foam. Decent head retention. Smell: Crackery malts, a little bite of grain. Citrus and plucked bitterish greens with a little bit of spicy yeastiness. Taste: A crackery, light pale maltiness with a slim sweetness a touch of graininess. Citrus fruit, lemongrass and dandelions, greens and all. Medium bitterness. Slightly minerally. Moderately spicy, peppery throughout and into the dry, effervescent finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation, a bit foamy on the tongue. Overall: Thirst-quenching, but, well, it’s pretty so-so all-around.

The Bruery Share This: Coffee
Inky black pour with a him ring of tan head around the edge. Big syrupy nose of earthy semisweet dark chocolate, roast, licorice, coffee, and a certain boozy sweetness. Big full palate with loads of dark chocolate, coffee, a little roast, a syrupy smokey black malt booziness, and licorice/coffee/chocolate syrup finish. Huge and lovely and rich and nuanced. Not as much coffee as if hoped but it’s amazing nonetheless. Boozy and dark chocolaty.

Somewhat hazy golden hue with a generous foamy white head. Lovely herbal and funny sweet floral aroma that has tones of fresh lilac and orange citrus and lavendar and something from the spice cabinet, with a nice wheaty nuance and lots of fruity Belgian yeast esters. Bright flavor that’s sunshiney and golden, and a touch wheaty, light floral tones that aren’t hoppy just there for flavor, and a fluffy mouthfeel that’s very wheat focused without being too wheaty on flavor. Just a smooth, bright but reserved and calming Belgian ale that’s a little floral and finishes just a touch funky.

The Bruery Ride That Bear
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is malty with a lot of caramel and lighter toffee and toasted bread. Moderately strong hop notes with a classic grapefruit and pine resin character. A bit of a woody hop note as well with a light alcohol presence. Pours brown with a fairly large, thick, creamy, tan head that exhibits really good retention. Fairly high lacing and small legs. Flavor is similar to the aroma. Fairly malty with caramel, toffee, toasted bread and a light nuttiness. Medium high bitterness and fairly hoppy. Quite a bit of hop character with grapefruit, pine and wood being dominant. A light onion note. Light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright brown IPA or whatever style this is, but also not something I enjoy. The hop profile is old and boring as is the malt profile. While they are the right fit for each other, neither should exist.

From my cellar. Deep red with no head. Unlike the Madeira version, the fruit here is more mild, but the alcohol is more present. Bourbon and port notes blend together smoothly in the finish which remains remarkably long.

The Bruery / Maine Beer Fourthmeal
Hazy rich golden with a thin Rocky and sticky white head. Crisp toasty blonde malt with a nice quasi fruity Belgian ester and a little leafy dry hop tone. Crisp body that’s blonde and fruity and full of Belgian eccentric esters, and also that same leafy tone from the aroma that lends a playful hoppy and slightly piney tone to it all. A playful and complex hoppy Belgian blonde ale.

The Bruery Sucré (Madeira Barrel)
Finally pulled this from my cellar. Still has that toffee and burnt sugar aromas, but the flavor has been nicely mellowed from the Madeira. Not too sweet or cloying with plenty of fruit left. Alcohol has definitely been tempered with aging. This is a very nice sipper.

Shared BOTTLE 75 CL at 14.8%. Loads of raisin, dried fruity malts, smoky salty rubber, barrel vanilla. Barely sensing the ultra high ABV. Yummy fruity sweetness, balanced by a good deal of drying soft alcohol and fruity tartness. Huge and super yummy.

The Bruery Ride That Goat
Bottle from the Bruery. Pours murky deep hazel with a medium tan head that dissipates leaving decent lacing and bubbles. Aroma is bourbon and vanilla forward, with rye bread and hints of clove. Flavor is pretty sweet, medium bitter. loads of bourbon, rye, clove, vanilla, a hint acidic and tannic. Medium body, not as hot as you might think, but still aggressive and harsh.

The Bruery Sucré (Madeira Barrel)
Not quite as vinous and tart as the port ba version, and I like it a touch more for that. Still very barrel heavy and toeing the line between big and sweet, and overbearing. Lots going on...boozy oak and berries, still very malt driven with an ever so slight sweet tart twang. Very good, just not a $30 beer.

750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma smells like horchata, with fudge, chocolate and milk. Flavour is intense, with lots of chocolate milk, cocoa, medium roasted malt and lactose. ABV is present but not too overbearing. Not too sweet, with a chocolate finish. Excellent.
