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.

Bottle. Dark hazel brown, light fizzy head. Cherry, almond, vanilla, toffee nose. Fizzy body. Alcohol, almond, vanilla, nutty, definitely on the sweeter side but cut with a slight astringency from the alcohol. Reminds me of a madeira. Warm but not outlandish considering the abv. Great beer.

Caramel, bourbon, fruity yet slight tartness. Beautiful aroma in the nose and on the palette. Leaves you wanting more and more.

Thick and viscous. Boozey nose with bread and bourbon. Sweeter that expected with hints of maple and molasses. Very full mouthfeel. Finish lingers pleasantly.

Bottle at RBSG. Pour is dark with tan head. Tons of bourbon and sweet caramel on the nose. Very sweet, but the bourbon helps balance it. Lots of brown sugar, some hot booziness. Really a great beer.

Overly sweet. Waaaay overly sweet. Aroma is decent but flavor lacks. Not my thing at all.
