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.

750 ml waxed bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. Not sure who shared this guy, but thanks! A: Pours a dark cherry and brown body with some dark orange edges. Crazy combo. A light tan head forms on the pour and dissipates to a bubbly ring that leaves some splotches of lace. S: Light bourbon and oak upfront with some candied sugar, dark fruits and some back end sweet caramel. T: The taste is a little more barrel forward than the nose, but the sweet caramel flavors really cut into it. There is a light leathery component in addition to some candied figs that really add another layer flavor. M: Slight chewy with medium carbonation. The body isn’t too heavy and for 15.5% this is surprisingly drinkable. O: The barrel aging thin the body just enough to make this scarily drinkable for 15.5%. I really don’t think the beer needs much time for the heat to die down and the flavor to integrate. I’d sit on this guy a little longer and that’s it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-08-2012

Pours a hazy plum brown. No carbonation until after the pour it produces. Smell is loaded with dark fruits and very heavy sugars. Deep bourbon charred oak and vanilla. I get some liquorice Taste is extremely sweet. Plums and raisins. Burnt brown sugar and pepper. Loads of boozy taste but nothing on the finish. No alcohol burn. Very sweet with vanilla at the finish. Very low carbonation. Heavy body

Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, faint chocolate, and vanilla. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and toffee. The finish has some molasses, vanilla, and light whiskey. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation.

Bottle at Kingcecils Birthday Tasting. Pours dark ruby wit a medium off white head. The aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet malt, loads of toasted malt and sweet tobacco. The flavour is very intense. Loads of bourbon, oak, vanilla, overripe fruit, caramel and has a great vinous kick. Fantastic!

Shared by Darrell. Thanks man, what a nightcap! The beer is dark auburn with a thin off white collar. The aroma is pleasant, offering malt, oak, booze, fruit, bourbon, toffee, caramels, oh my, what is taking place here?!? The flavor follows suit, with a wonderful assault of flavors. The Bruery seems to have the recipe for 15%+ abv old ales / barleywines down pat. Wow. Go Patrick, wif yo bad self. A tad sweet, but never cloying. A barrage of tastes, to include toffee, oak, booze, bourbon, brandy perhaps. One could hurt thyself if left unattended with this beer. Medium bodied with a warming alcohol finish. moderately low carbonation. Delicious. Recommended.

On tap @ Toronado: Served in a tiny 4 oz. cup with no formation of head while the liquid was an opaque brown liquid with a tint of red mahogany. Aroma is all syrup and has scents of wood and barrel aging. The flavor is intense and is almost like drinking liquid sugar or melted caramel but does have a brown sugar and maple syrup taste that reminds me of Sam Adams triple bock. Aftertaste is a strong astringent medicine finish that makes me feel like I just took a swig of high proof rum or vodka. Nice sticky sweet resin left around my lips. I would prefer to be drinking most of these Bruery beers from bottles but since they only distribute only a few cases, it’s nearly impossible to find one.
