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 years 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.

Editors Note: This is the entry for The Bruerys Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DanielCoor). Looks good for the style; a murky orangish brown with thin beige lacing. Smells sweet, malty, and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

Pours a rich red amber with Carmel head. Has a velvety mouthfeel and a creaminess with a sharp boozy finish. Carmel and sweet notes prevail. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ktwse (4250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Pours very dark brown, nearly black, with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma of muscovado, dried dates and figs, raisins and corinthians, bourbon barrels, chocolate, vanilla, the kitchen sink... This beer is HUGE on the nose, and in a great way! It literally made me laugh out loud - my wife probably think Im crazy... Taste is initially boozy sweet with heavy port and bourbon barrel. Finish is long and alcohol warming. Rich, full, creamy and sticky body with flat carbonation but again tons of alcohol. This is absolutely amazing, though I must say a tad too strong. It reminds me of Lost Abbeys The Angels Share Bourbon Barrel but with more alcohol. I think a couple of years in a cellar will do wonders for this beer!

Bottle shared by Nate, Thanks Man ! Pours a murky brown color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is sweet caramel, toffee and butterscotch... traces of fig, booze and old wood. I never thought I would fall for such a sweet beer but the complexity lying within the sweetness is so dialed in and inviting I cannot stop drinking it ! Vanilla, tootsie roll, smooth creamy caramel, werthers original, bourbon kissed... YUM !

Holy crap, on tap at Eureka Burger in Santa Barbara. Super strong (15.5%), tastes like whiskey, an intense sipping beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2656) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2013
I cant stand wax but this one will probably age well so it gets a pass. Dark reddish brown, light head, some lacing and retention. Boozy aroma with darker fruit notes, caramel, vanilla. Full bodied, thick, syrupy, sweet. Alcohol hidden much better than Melange 3. This beer is monstrous, but is much better balanced than other beers at this alcohol content. Win
