COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

All i want to say is: wow its good. It has a beautifully sweet and reminds me of raison d’extra. Has an umber color with a small white head. Has a very sweet taste with a nice bite i get from bourbons and Irish single malts. Cant wait to see what its like after it ages

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Wow! Fantastic! This beer is one of my favorites, Cuir and Coton were wonderful. The bourbon barrel aging really stands out with this beer. Definitely richer, more bourbon, a little sweeter. This is a "must try"! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Absolutely incredible offering from a brewery not unfamiliar with incredible offerings. Cognac colored syrupy pour with about a finger of head that quickly dissipated. Insanely complex aroma (and flavors) of dark chocolate, port, sherry, bourbon, molasses, maple ,touch of peat smoke, caramel, toffee, plum, Mandarine orange, kumquat, tangerine, cherry, breadfruit, mango, starfruit, raisin, kiwi, and lime. This creation definitely reminds me of Sam Adams Millennium’s slightly trimmer brother. Despite the high level of sweetness, on so many levels, there is a distinctive citric hoppiness that manages to assert itself at the tail end of each sip. There is more than a bit of heat, but much of it contributes to the flavor dynamic, and adds a pleasant warmth, rather than coming off as harsh. I have no doubt that a few years of cellaring would result in an absolute masterpiece.

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?

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 This is Fruet and not Bois. Nothing less than a perfect beer! Dark fruits, bourbon, caramel, toffee, sugar on the lips, vanilla. This is heaven!

This is easily one of the best beers I've ever had. Complex, interesting, full of flavor. Mellowed from multiple years of storage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Awesome complex brew. Very malty with earth leathery hops. Caramel and some sherried like wine character. Nice mouthfeel bus was not sweet just nice and malty with complex sherry like finish.

Can’t even imagine a better beer. Aroma has this unique scent I’ve not come across before that smells of fresh cut sawdust, almost burnt-like, and it’s totally enticing and wonderful. Taste is rich, full bodied, full flavored old ale. Could drink this all night, absolutely perfect beer.

Dark caramel with good, foamy, tan head / Big, rich nose of caramel, bourbon, coconut, chocolate, and fruit cake / Full body, chewy and sweet, good cover of the big alcohol, with the giant malts well balanced by hopping, and long finish / Flavors of fresh caramel, bourbon, coconut, chocolate, cream, date, raisin, and orange / Here’s a beer for aging, but mighty fine today. Apologies for the .1 point deduction.
