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.

On tap at the Growler Spot. Small head. Clearish red-brown. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, soy sauce, must, vanilla, and wood. Sweet, woody, boozy taste. Full bodied.

Wersja CUIVRE Piana niewielka znika do krążka. Kolor brunatny, mętny. Aromat powala, wanilia, dębina, kokos, suszone owoce, daktyle. Smak oddaje to co w aromacie, jest dość słodko, po ustach rozlewa sie wanilia, kokos lekko dębina. Są suszone owoce, śliwka, rodzynki, ciemne słody, lekko miód, burbon, alkohol szlachetnie wyczuwalny ale przy ponad 16% to zrozumiałe. Piwo degustacyjne Wyśmienite, beczka pięknie oddała swoje walory. Warte każdej złotówki, Brawo WOW

On the label is written "contains alcohol". Really? There’s f*** 16.1% abv.!! Pours dark reddish brown, opaque and slightly clear with foamy dissipating beige head. Aroma: malts, dark fruits esters, vanilla, oak, bourbon...flavor is also very intense: malts with notes of honey, toasted toffee, caramel, bitter dark chocolate, hint of coffee, berries, cherries, resins, dates like fruity esters, vanillin, woody tannins, bourbon - like alcohol note / warmth...dry, slightly sticky sweet finish, full body, smooth texture, moderate carbonation. High abv. is perfectly hidden.

W aromacie przyjemnie, toffi, rodzynki i wanilia. W smaku za to mocno marcepanowe, do tego ciemne owoce, dużo figi tutaj jest. No i niestety coś co dużo ujmuję temu piwu. Alkohol, który bardzo mocno grzeje. Wiadomo to piwo ma 17%, więc nic dziwnego że czuć alkohol, ale w innym piwie z The Bruery - Colonel Kernel które ma prawie 15% udało się świetnie schować alkohol. 2 lata w piwnicy dużo dobrego zrobi dla tego piwa, bo wszystko poza alko jest bardzo przyjemne.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Wonderful brew with a sweet malty taste. Great alcohol presence and the alcohol burn is so mild and sexy. Love the brew. Caramel and honey. Roasted raisins/cherries... Perfect.

Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2017
On tap @ The Growler. This is a cloudy looking one, almost a little murky and deep plum brown in colors. On the top a medium sized dense beige heavy lacing head. Really like the nose. It’s both a little sourish and very malt caramelly sweet. Loaded with dried fruits, vanilla, wood, berries and malt biscuits. Smells really nice. Sugary sweet at times but not cloying at all. Yeah, mine kind of aroma. Tastes wonderful. Dried and really berry sweet. Blue and blackberries with those small sweet plums. It’s thick and oily in the mouth while soft gentle on the prickling carbonation. A little licorice, tones of cigar, some tarmac, vanilla and a lovely intense dried fruity finish containing dates ang figs. A beautiful one. 19.06.2017
