COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

sulawang (1197) - - MAR 7, 2017
(from memory, drank on March 2, 2017)

Visual: Hefty bottle. Pours root beer brown with a smallish head, mild activity.

Nose: Intense chocolate, butterscotch-toffee, wickedly aromatic (lvl-10)-pungency

Attack: slightly fizzy, thicker viscosity, rich intense impression

Mid-palate: butterscotch, (lvl-8-sweetness), vanilla, toffee, liquid barley malt, bourbon, root beer

Finish: licorice, chocolate, background woodiness, controlled alcoholic heat

Summary: Super body, balanced, sippable, and should be shared among friends and family. This drinks unlike any of the 1100 beers I’ve tried - a wrecking ball of intensity yet still balanced enough not to be harsh. I probably say this only once it a year but this is something I would like to try again.

Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. Bottle said Bois. From untappd notes. Unsure of pour. Aroma is werther’s original, butterscotch, bourbon, oak, sweet. Flavor is cherry, craisin, butterscotch, caramel, oak. Quite sweet, but good. Very happy to finally get to try this.

Nose is salted caramel. Toffee gives way to barley and notes of licorice. overtones of honey and vanilla on a backdrop of lingering subtle hop. Strong bourbon backbone. truly delicious. well done;

[email protected], NYC, USA. Aroma like port wine. Also balanced taste with nicely detectable bourbon nuances. Dark fruits like plum. Ultra-wide taste spectrum. Superb.

Bottle pour into my favorite snifter. Pours a murky brown with a 2 finger head which quickly dies. Rich aroma of bourbon, cherry, and cane sugar. Taste is very bourbon forward with hints of vanilla, fudge, and dark fruit. Mmm... This is an enjoyable sipper. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice!

Bottle from the dregs run delivery. Thanks Craig! Pours brown with no head. Aromas of bourbon, cherry, wood, vanilla, sweet sugar. Taste is boozy, chocolate, vanilla, fudge. Boozy heat.

wxman (1848) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Pours a dark ruby color with a light brown head that fades, but sticks around. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt, maple and chocolate-covered cherry candies. Taste is both vinous and whiskey-like along with chocolate, coffee, vanilla and buttery maple. Some alcohol evident after the swallow. Exceptional!

mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2016
750mL bottle shared with family. Pours a deep mahogany with a one inch beige head. Aroma is bourbon and alcohol, with notes of dried fruits. Taste is bourbon up front, followed quickly by toffee, raisins, and cherries. Medium bodied with a surprising amount of carbonation. Alcohol level is beyond warming, on the threshold of burning. A good sipper with friends - definitely not a bottle to be drank alone. The booze catches up on you fast.
