Bracia is the Celtic name for a beverage brewed in Iron Age Europe with reference found on a Roman inscription at Haddon Hall,Derbyshire. Little is known about this except it was high in alcohol, brewed with cereals and, most probably, honey. Thornbridge’s Bracia has been infused with a generous amount of dark and bitter Chestnut Honey. This was sourced by Head Brewer Stefano Cossi from Beekeeper Onelia Pin in the Alpine foothills of North East Italy. Aromas are of chestnut, honey, cappuccino, white chocolate, dark fruits, vibrant fresh peel. The mouthfeel is velvety and rich, with notes of coffee, chocolate, liquorice and hazelnuts with warming alcohol, cocoa and a little peat in the finish. Malts: Maris Otter, Brown, Munich, Dark Crystal, Black, Chocolate, Peated and Roasted Barley. Hops: Target, Pioneer, Hallertau Northern Brewer and Sorachi Ace. Bracia can be cellared for up to one year, maybe longer. Its flavours will evolve so why not enjoy the experience of opening a bottle every once in a while.

TEJA (4488) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2019 Big and lasting Brown head. Very dark color. Rich and complex aroma. Full body and impression taste of roasted malt and chocolate with a small caramell sweetness. Good bitterness that balanced the body.

CanCrusher (1453) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 17, 2019
UPDATED: APR 17, 2019 Bottle 0,50L. Very dark brown color with small, creamy, light brown head. Aroma of cappuccino, milk chocolate, hazelnuts, liquorice, caramel and honey. Taste starts light sweet and turns to medium bitter with cappuccino and hazelnuts. It's very smooth, very rich and alcohol is very well hidden (at least in taste ;-) ). Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, nice balance. Excellent beer!

BVery (13328) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2019 Bottle - thanks Bob! Darker pour, rich, licorice, strong. Good beer, got a couple years on it, but still solid.

deyholla (15742) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2019 Bottle thanks to Bob! Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains, tobacco, light peat and toffee with a hint of bread underlying. Flavor has tobacco and toffee with some toffee, caramel and bread backing.

spechtacular (487) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 26, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2019 Z notatek: pełne, bogate w aromaty piwo podobne nieco w stylu do barleywine.

Towey1989 (5466) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2019 Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. BB 03/18. Pours a deep brown colour with thin beige head. Aroma of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, leather, some figs, honey, slight liquorice, a hint of sourness and subtle wood. Taste of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, leather, some liquorice, honey, slight roasted malts, alcohol, dried fruits, peat and subtle wood. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, roasted nut and chocolate bitterness in the finish. I don’t know what say, this is ridiculously complex. But imagine how much better it would be in date. Shame I forgot I had it.

Bijl (1431) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2019 Gitzwart, licht peaty, veel chocola, cappuccino, nootachtig, lichtelijk zoethout/zilt, donker fruit, spicy en roasty bitter. EIgenlijk gewoon een IMP Stout. Echt top!!!

Senap (799) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 Ordentlig smakbomb - massor av smaker. Väldigt 'tjock' nästan lite oljig i konsistensen. Svart som synden. Beror det på lagringstiden?
