This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The traditional fifth anniversary gift is something made of wood, or "Bois" in French.

Bois is our fifth anniversary ale, loosely brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. 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. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Bois is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.

Tons of caramel and vanilla notes. It assaults the senses and washes down in a creamy, sublime fashion. This is one of the best beers I've ever had, and hides the alcohol pretty well for being this young. I expect it to compete well with Fruet given some time in the bottle.

Much like Sucre and equally delicious. If you can get this, get it, you won't be disappointed.

Sweet booze bomb with oak, vanilla, plumes, dates and figs. Get as cold as possible! Let it warm down to room temperature.
