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.

Pours a hazy chocolate brown that goes from light at the top to nearly sable at the bottom. Sour fruit dominates the tempting aroma. Flavor is fruity, sour but not mouth-puckering, yeasty with a malty underpinning. Smooth texture is firm though not too fizzy. Another good one at the HMOG!

750ml bottle pours a clear brown color. Bourbon flavors are so smooth and blend in with the malty sweetness. Great cigar beer.

This is great. Pours a sherry color with strong vinous aromas... Very sherry like. Flavors are sweet with some tang and strong liquore like flavor.

Concealer (1176) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Tap at hop and pie. Cloudy reddish plum with a small amber head that does not last. Aromas of dark fruit, plum, raisin, caramel, and bourbon. Flavor is the same with a warming finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Lingering dark fruit and bourbon.

Scopey (12511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Fruet vs Bois at Bruce’s Birthday Bozze-Fest. They pour deep ruby-brown with a small beige head. The nose is woody, must, leather armchair, vanilla, bourbon and brown bread. The taste is wood, leather, raisin, orange peel, bourbon, vanilla, grape skin, vinous, candy, booze, leather, earth and fig with warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Overall the bois is fruitier, jammy and more vinous. Pretty big, intense stuff either way. Solid, but pretty heavy duty stuff.

Another great gift for the big brew bachelorette party. Almost like a Porto sangria carbonated blende of goodness. Again only one bottled poured. So just got a sipper. But great stingy raisin flavor great balance, light on fizzy. But such a stupendous flavor for what was offered. If I had the fullb750 I’d bev burnt toast. This type of brew will get the Venus from woman and the men from mars to hook it up!

750 ml bottle from Reserve Society gold wax top. Dark dirty brown pour without any head. Nose is molasses, figs, toffee and bourbon nuance. Flavor is rich and complex. Port wine hints mixed with toffee, bourbon vanilla, oak barrel, dark fruit hints and levels of bourbon goodness. The heat is mild even at 15%. The warming sensation after the sip is very light and sensual. This beer will age beautiful. Borderline sweet right now but it’s not cloying. it is completely fantastic right now. The depth of flavor is awesome.

Bottle of Bois and bottle of Fruet cheers to Bruce and Paul for Bruce’s birthday bash at CBC Islington. Nose is sooooo sweet - think stewed raisins, toffee, fudgy caramel, woody, vanilla beans, huge liquorice and brown sugar. In your face sweet as you would expect from Bruery. Works well enough. Tastes quit woody and vanilla forward, loads of creamy lactose, stewed dates/raisins, choc full of dark fruits. Some nice tarty berries seem present in the Bois. I found both of them had an odd vinous kick which worked very nicely. Tasty but very sweet stuff

Bottle thanks to Bruce and Paul for sharing at Bruce’s Birthday Bash (a Fruit and a Bois), CBC Islington 07/02/14. I went for the bottle named after me ! Murky mahogony brown with a moderate beige covering. Nose is toffee, dark malts, spice, pitted fruits, tarte tangy fruit aromas, earthy cocoa. Taste comprises rich toffee fudge, dark fruits, light bourbon, Xmas cake, touch of booze, chocolate notes. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light booze coated finale. Decent stuff, very easy drinking affair for the ABV!

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Wow holly shyt what am I smelling, this smelly retardedly awesome, the aromas is herculean in strength, cherry, coffee, soya sauce, coconut…….. this list can go on for a while. The aroma is so thick I can feels its fingers molesting my nose. Goes down so smooth, how is this 15%?!?!?! Borders on to sweet but stays acceptable. Cherry, vanilla, mild soya, kind of smoky but not, lots more awesome. So much going on, massive in the complexity. This is the liquid jizz of a beer god.
