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.

Une bouteille de 750ml date de 2012 et qui porte le numro 06196. Merci Boul, tu as bien choisis. Mme en Californie plus de trente dollars ce nest pas donn. Bombe brune orange fonce avec une mince couche de mousse. Le Fruet nest pas fluet, il y a du chocolat, du bourbon, du toffee dans ce nez. La bouche est chaude, sucre, le bourbon est bien prsent. La finale est sur les toffee, la tire drable et les fruits secs. Une bire extrme, plus de 15% dalcool, qui ne demande qu tre partage.

Une bouteille de 75 cl date de 2012 et qui porte le numro 06196. Une dgustation avec Yan et avec Boul, le propritaire de cette bombe 31.99$. Un liquide qui montre une belle robe rougetre sur laquelle flotte un petit col beige qui russit laisser quelques traces. Au nez, une capiteuse envole de malts et de choses compltement fruites dans un alcool tiss par la dcadence du bourbon et de ses excessifs accompagnateurs. Au got, une explosion caramlise dans un feu ardent de tire drable ponge par le souvenir fruit qui traverse lintensit contrle dun bourbon qui ne cesse dpater. Une bouche bien costaude. Une texture grasse et soyeuse qui saccomode du mouvement adquat des bulles. Une finale liquoreuse, complexe, lgrement chaude et pratiquement rotisante. Une proposition monstrueuse qui reste facile boire en dpit de son intensit. Dans le domaine du spectacle.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at Stone Soup 2013 as the barrel-aged Coton. Aroma is bourbon vanilla notes, brown sugar, cherry, toffee and yum. Pours red and nasty (in a good way). Taste is equally delicious with nice toffee, chocolate, and brilliant sour cherry. There is an intensity throughout that is just wonderful and unforgettable. Great stuff!

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2013
From notes - sample pour of hazed burnt toffee with shallow head. Nose is booze, vanilla, oaky sweetness, caramel and burnt sugar, toffee and bourbon. Flavor is booze... just booze, it burns. Toffee, bourbon, more booze, caramel, more booze... sweet tobacco, malt forward.. booze. Medium to full body and super healthy.

The wax is always a pain. It pours dark walnut brown with little off white head and lots of haze. The aroma is strongly of rasisin and figs, and as it warms lots of oaky coconut/vanilla aromas are present. The first sip hits hard with strong alcohol, which quickly fades to strong notes of bourbon and figs, chocolate covered rasins with pralines. The second sip yields some maple syrup and cherries. The body is thick, rich and heavy. The chocolate increases significantly as it warms up. All in all this beer is well worth the initial sticker shock, for layers upon layers of flavor for sure, it doesnt look very good at first pour but it makes up for it and then some.
