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.

Nocturne (1805) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Rating a bottle of Fruet as this seems to be aliased. Pours brown with a short head. Nice bourbon, chocolate and toffee aroma. Lovely taste with all of the aroma elements but adding a generous helping of dark fruitiness. Alcohol heat lurking but not oppressive; fairly drinkable for the ABV. Very nice old ale that seems to walk the line between imperial stout and barley wine.

solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Doft: spritig. Smak: socker söt. Har en spritig eftersmak. Ölen är välbalanserad efter spriten, man känner att den är stark men på ett retande sätt. En tung öl med goda förutsättningar.

_angst_ (4506) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours dark chestnut brown with a small goldenish brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, biscuits, sweet indonesian soy sauce, cocoa powder, charred wood, vanilla fudge, shredded coconut, caramelized almonds, hay, liquorice fudge and hints of moist soil. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and heavy malty with caramel, biscuits, raisins, prunes, vanilla fudge, alcohol, shredded coconut, caramelized almonds, hay, butterscotch hard candy, bourbon, charred wood and hints of soil. Mouthfeel is round, soft, slightly sticky sweet, boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and malty with caramel, vanilla fudge, bourbon, leather, prunes, raisins, charred wood and hints of dried cherries. Too much of everything but still very tasty.

HMOG 2014 donation. A little much on the alcohol still. Definitely needed to split this with someone and thanks to HMOG for giving me the venue to do that. A little spice on the finish not before a an alcohol burn though. Soy sauce in the aroma. Red fruit plum and soy sauce again in the flavor.
