Poterie is French for “pottery”, the traditional eight-year anniversary gift. Our eighth anniversary ale, Poterie, follows in the footsteps of our anniversary releases before it, which are loosely based on an English-style old ale, fermented with our house yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. This means that a portion of each anniversary ale is saved in oak barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character as the years go by. The result is layered in robust and complex flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Poterie will age gracefully for decades when cellared properly.

Editor’s Note: This is the entry for The Bruery’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

Bottle at Eric’s with some southern gentleman in Dallas. Pour is murky brown with a small head that quickly dissipated. Caramelly, woodsy, big coconut, sweet vanilla, raisiny, figgy, pruney, and bready aroma. Taste is big caramel, bready, coconut, piney, big wood, vanilla, white chocolate, bourbon, and whiskey with a touch of heat on the finish. Slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not bad, but a bit too big and hot to be excellent for me.

The very best in my opinion. Drank smooth, alcoholic without being overpowering. Subtle notes of everything but the kitchen sink, perfectly matched and combined. Leather, caramel, bread, chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla, wood, leaves, nuts and citrus. All went down like a nectar, soothing and I dare say, perfect?

Bottle; Pour is fairly murky mahogany with a fairly mild off white head in this glass. Fruit esters come through on the nose, with some booze present. Caramel, sweet bread, mild bourbon, that comes across like a floral bouquet. The flavor profile is sticky and sweet to be certain, though I was expecting slightly more heft than this. Vanilla and toffee initial, moving to bourbon and light booziness. 15.5% comes across nicely overall, with dark fruit, florals, and oak near the finish. An excellent one here overall - the blend comes across nicely to me

reggiedunlop (3669) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours an opaque brown with a thin off white head. Aroma has caramel and vanilla atop bourbon and oak...very aromatic. Flavor follows suit...very sweet with caramel and vanilla...oak dries and bourbon/booze hit hard...some dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is boozy dark fruit/oak/bourbon...warms.

2013 thanks to t0rin0! Aromas of caramel and bourbon. Pours a dark brownish red color with little head. Was a bit hot at first when it was cold but it got smoother as it warmed up. I can imagine that this would be even better with some age on it. A great beer to sip on as the 15% creeps up on you.
