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.

Aroma is complex musty,oaky,bourbon and wine notes. Brown in color small tan head. Flavors of oak, bourbon and coconut are most noted. Clean and a touch sweet at 15.5 that you would never guess in will creep up on you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fletchfighters (1449) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2012
Hazy dark brown color. Light brown head. Fantastic nose. Bourbon, butter, oak, toffee, vanilla, leather, and alcohol. bourbon, vanilla, toffee, molasses, dark fruits and slight amounts of oak. Sweet and sticky taste. Quite smooth for such a sticky and sweet beer. Developing sherry and port qualities very quickly. Wonderful beer that really needs to be shared due to the alcohol and the content of what it is. Still quite brilliant

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Wow! Fantastic! This beer is one of my favorites, Cuir and Coton were wonderful. The bourbon barrel aging really stands out with this beer. Definitely richer, more bourbon, a little sweeter. This is a "must try"! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Share with Dembonz to celebrate the end of Novembeer. MASSIVE beer here. Huge flavors of molasses and bourbon, as well as caramel and vanilla. Very sweet, but not overly sweet. Great bottle to share. Thanks again Wrye, this was amazing.
