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.

Delicious, huge, bourbon, vanilla, booze. Very sweet, carbonation is soft, mouthfeel is creamy. Huge, huge beer. Just an incredible barrel aged monster.

On tap at Palate Milford. Poured hazy red brown with creamy tan beige head. Strong aroma of bourbon and barrel char vanilla. Light carb need bod. Sweet caramel vanilla bourbon taste. Pretty good high octane stuff.

Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2014
This poured a medium brown with a tiny white head. Aroma was lots of.Bourbon, dark fruits, and booze and caramel. Flavor was similar, very sweet, but not to the point of being sickening like the regular version. Ok

zvsn (2301) - ISRAEL - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle at The Bruery tasting at Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits and spices. Sweet with fruity flavors (prunes, raisins), caramel, tart and woody notes, very boozy (as expected) with alcoholic warmth down the throat. Medium-bodied, syrupy texture. Bold and complex, but a bit too extreme and hard to drink.

rayaron (1992) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Cloudy brown with low beige head. Aroma of vanilla, whiskey-like, woody, very alcoholic, caramel. Very sweet flavor, very alcoholic, vanilla, whiskey, woody, light sourness, soya. Creamy texture. Heavy body.

McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Dark muddied brown with a small ringed head. Creamy coconut, soft berry and neat muddied booze. Velvety patted down sweetness initially and crunchy coconut throughout. Very very soft burn for such an ABV. Soft milky mouthfeel without being overly dank. Nice lickable sweetness, vinious and bright before a soft dazzling sweet linger.

Bottle, Tasting by Numbers Tasting, Cheers BenH for the shelf turd.
