look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

5oz draft pour in a snifter. 14.5% ABV.

Appearance: Chestnut brown, slightly cloudy, with a light cap of beige foam (4/5).

Aroma: Sweet bourbon, vanilla, jammy Port wine, brown sugar, molasses, a little black pepper, and a hint of oak (5/5).

Taste: I have never tasted any beer that more closely resembles a Port than this. Very interesting. This flavor is then laced with sweet sugars and dark pitted fruits (primarily cherry) (4.5/5).

Mouthfeel: Full body with low carbonation. Beautiful warmth from the alcohol (4.5/5)

Overall: This was The Bruery’s second anniversary ale, which I guess makes it a little over three years old at this point. I had it at their Taproom, and appreciate how lovingly they have seen it into maturity. It’s an incredible example of what the “big” end of this style can be, with a very distinct and mature flavor and aroma. It’s also an exciting example of the “Solera” method, where the same beer is created year-after-year and previous vintages are blended into it for layers of depth and complexity. I guess for this version only Papier (1st anniversary) is in the mix, but it’s nice to know that some of what I’m drinking will be around for a long time. From my understanding, similar techniques were used in historical Old Ale making. I could drink it all day if it wouldn’t make me dead (4.5/5).

Serving type: on-tap
