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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Fantastic. Fantastic. Fantastic. Nose has you thinking sour. Taste blows you away, dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, port, candy...just...wow. Nice body and carb. Just...wow. Edit: The previous rate for for a late season Fruet and stands. Recently had this years Bois and must say it’s not as smooth and a bit boozy around the edges. Carb is much more lively and I think maybe some time will put this meh beer into the outstanding company of it’s predecessor. 3.8 overall

Yes! Reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is a bourbon wallop with some caramel. Flavor is orgasmic caramel toffee sweetness blended with boozy bourbon, oak. The bourbon dominates the sweetness for the malt, making it more refreshing than chewy. medium-heavy on the palate, slightly hot, but not as much as expected for the abv. So good, and dangerous! Worth the 30$ when split between friends.

This is one you want to crack over dessert with about 8-10 people. Extreme sugar and fruit flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I actually loved this, but I’m not sure I’d want to have more 6oz max in a sitting.

750ml bottle dipped in some serious gold wax. Had a hard time getting it open haha. Soon as the seal breaks I get an amazing scent of bourbon. Pours a muddy brownish ruby color, one finger of khaki head that diminished quickly. Nice alcohol legs and beautiful in the glass. So the aroma, fuck. Rich, thick, god damn nostril overload. Smooth buttery bourbon and toasted oak. Toffee, caramel, vanilla, burnt sugar, a little chocolate and immense rum raisins. The smell is so complex, ridiculously huge beer. I’ve never smelled anything like it. Upfront flavors of toasted vanilla oak, great barrel character. Smooth toffee bourbon and caramelly creamy malts. Sweet, syrupy, boldness. Very slight hop profile on the after taste. Slick and subtly carbonated mouthfeel. Syrupy, chewy, excellent. Totally unique and unforgettable beer, worth every dollar and it really is an experience. I’ve never had anything like it and I doubt I ever will. Definitely a must try.

750 ml bottle. Pours a muddy brown. Super sweet nose of heavy bourbon, caramel syrup, vanilla, and a touch of treacle tart. Sweet bourbon forward but not too boozy, followed by a blend of figs, oak, toffee, brown sugar, and dates; a slight bitter sourness emerges as the beer warms before quickly giving way to sweetness again. Very soft, smooth palate with a sweet finish that goes on for days. This has matured nicely in the short time since its release.

Black pour. Sizable khaki head that falls quickly and does not leave lacing. Peppery malt aroma. Dark, dried fruits - raisins and figs. Vanilla notes. Taste is like caramel topped vanilla ice cream. Holy crap, it’s phenomenal. A very, very slight alcohol warmth mixed with the sweet syrup. Slightly too sweet, but the flavors more than make up for it. This is a fantastic beer.

Nice reddish brown color with a quick dissolving white head. Scent is some molasses, dried plums, barrel notes and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet caramel and molasses and some raisins, outstanding beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Sample pour from a bomber bottle. Huge hop and fruit aroma, which leads me to think this is an American Old Ale. I didn’t pick up on the malts as much in the aroma. Appearance is a foggy orange and heavy amounts of foam on top. Taste was more apparently malted, but the hop side won out and dominated the flavor profile. Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and warm. Palate was fizzed and medium bodied. Overall a fantastic beer, easy drinking and bold at the same time. It lives up to the hype that you hope for in a rare and highly sought after selection

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Couleur bouetteuse, pas la plus sexy. Caramel, vanille, noisettes, bourbon, fruits foncés, une bonne claque d’éthanol, surtout en arôme. Splendide corpulence! Les sucres sont multiples, profonde complexité.
