Absolutely delicious even after aging. Very smooth, and deceptively drinkable. The Anniversary beers from The Bruery are truly outstanding, and the Rye Whiskey aging on this variant was no different.

750ml sliver waxed bottle poured into tulip 23/6/16 cheers billverstein for sending the bottle


A pours a thick syrupy dark copper, looks flat when it first hit the glass but manages to foam up a solid thumbs width of light brown head, falls rather quickly and leaves some polka dot lace, legs try to form


S piles of brown sugar and soft caramel, vanilla and coconut, rye barrel plays a big part but there's more whiskey then wood, some sugar coated raisins, and I get some booze but I'd never guess its anywhere near 16.3%, smells sweet but sexy


T now the wood comes out along with the whiskey, the booze comes out a little more as well, spicy rye is hard to miss and I'm surprised how much of it there actually is, not as much brown sugar and caramel but that still leaves plenty, drinks like a rye liqueur and is as tasty as its intense


M 4 syrupy with just enough carbonation to give it some life, smashes the chest more then the throat but has some heat, my lips are completely stuck together and caramel, wood and rye linger


O its a massive slow sipper and I'm surprised just how much rye this picked up in the barrel, 2 years old and still drinking very young but smells and tastes awesome


This one could really go the distance in the cellar, drinking well today but little reminders of how big this beer really is pops up often while drinking it. I'm glad my wife liked it because its a little much to tackle solo on a Thursday night.

A: Poured into a snifter to a deep brown, nearly black beer topped by a half finger of dense light tan head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of toffee, dark fruits, vanilla, and caramel
T: Taste is toffee, vanilla, a little spice, caramel, dark fruits, a little oak and some toasted bread. Swallow is rye whiskey, molasses, caramel, vanilla and some lingering dark fruits.
M: Big and full on the palate with soft carbonation and a drying finish from the alcohol.
O: This is big sweet and boozy. The flavors are great and the complexity is definitely there. This is another great variant to Sucre. Not too hot either so it drinks pretty well for the ABV.

L: murky brown. General old ale look

S: dried fruit a heat from booze. Slight vanilla smell

T: toffee and vanilla with the whiskey infused.

F: smooth for 16%. A easy drinker.

O: great beer. Had Bois rye last night. Figured I would compare. I think I like this more.

Large shared bottle.
Sweet appealing aroma with hints of whisky, wood, toffee and Dark dried fruits.
Flavor is overly boozy, unless you are hoping for lots of whisky. Nonetheless, quite pleasing, somewhat complex, and only lightly hot.
Moderately sweet.

The brew appears a muddy brown color with quick fading khaki colored cap.

The nose includes burnt sugar appeal - caramel, molasses, vanilla and oak with a slight tangy whiskey component mingled with earth and faint toasted coconut towards the back.

The taste is tangy whiskey upfront, toasted coconut, oak, vanilla, caramel and oxidation thats cardboard-like and earthy/herbal in the aftertaste. Overall this maintains a solid boozy feel.

This is full bodied, lightly carbonated and an enjoyable sipper. This is very compariable to the bourbon version but has a little more nuance of the barrel and less focus on sugary qualities.
