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.

Aus der Flasche Cuivre 7th Anniversary (2015) 2016-12 getrunken. Dieses sau leckere Schwergewicht läßt sich ganz schwer zu beschreiben. Der brtitische Old Ale Stil ist sehr gut getroffen und das Bourbon BA fügt sich sehr gut ein ohne das Bier zu dominieren. Spitzenklasse!

Tried bruery's cuivre at paradiso D.C. That's the beer rated here. Beer buddy says it's the same beer as bruery's poterie. Paradiso says this one is the 7th anniversary beer & poterie is 8th. Lovely quad but a bit too bubbly for the style. Nearly 17%. Foggy color so unfiltered? Cinnamon nose. Coats the young but flavor strongest on the edges. Wonderful, slightly sharp, very durable after taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (8086) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
750ml bottle (thanks Harri). Bit hazy dark chestnut color. No head. Massive alcohol, toffee, bit woody in aroma. Alcohol, caramel, cognac, oak in taste. Cognac, alcohol and caramel in aftertaste. Harsh to drink. Boozy fckin stuff!

VamboladeTolly (2156) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle. Pours darker brown with bsmall beige /brownish head. Aroma: sharp sweet alcohol, butterscotch, toffee, caramel, milk chocolate, dried dark fruits, brandish, nice vanilla, bourbon touch. NICE. Taste: heavy sweat, with some balancing sourness, fruits and berries- dried and fresh, toffee, strawberries tipped in butterscotch and milk chocolate, alcohol warmness and warnings. Full body. Sweet-sourish finish.

Juks (849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
750ml bottle, thanks Harri. Pours clear dark reddish-brown colour, small head stays as ring. Sherry, red wine, sweet cherry notes, wood, booze in aroma. Rich booze caramel, port wine, vanilla, cocoa in taste. Very silky and soft texture. Cognac-ish warming aftertaste, lingonberry. Low carbonation. Nice, if I’m not taking this as a beer. Warmer.

beer_queue (145) - California, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Boozy & syrupy sweet; caramel, dark fruits, vanilla. Overall tastes so much like many other high ABV bourbon-barrel-aged Bruery beer. The whole isn’t greater than the sum of its parts. Not worth the price tag.

Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2017
Enjoyed at BTBF 2017. Murky brown color, beige head. Sweet malty aroma, syrupy, dusty. Oak flavor, sweet and syrupy, warmth that lingers forever.

Mini-snifter at Pazzo’s. Aroma includes toffee, vanilla, oak, and dark fruit. Taste quickly became overpoweringly sweet in my opinion.
