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 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.

800 yen for 120ml from a bottle at the Hanshin Seed Event. Bourbon version I believe. Dark brown, barrel oakiness in the nose. The taste is sweet brown sugar, oak, boozy but damn good. A flavorful surprise.

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Aroma of intense molasses, sticky malts, raisins, roasted amber malts, big alcohol on the nose, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Very darkened plum/magenta appearance and big alcohol legs. Big sticky malt sweetness overwhelms the palate. Huge, complex notes of cinnamon, roasted malts, raisins, plums, maple syrup, molasses, dark fruits, and toffee. Finish is massive with immense bourbon burn (like taking a shot) and big barrel notes. Overall, The Bruery knocks another homerun out of the park. Huge sticky, slick molasses/malt overtones ending with insane booziness. A+ rating.

ljthiessen (1304) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy brown pour, beige head. Lots of oak and bourbon in the nose, butter and brown sugar too. Flavour is lots of brown sugar, caramel, bourbon. Very sweet, but enough alcohol and flavour to support it. Hides the ABV, but still boozy. Very very nice.

Idiosynkrasie (7322) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
750ml bottle [as Bois, 2013 vintage, 15.0% abv]. Hazy dark brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Intense malty aroma, notes of toffee, caramel, nougat, marsipan, BA notes of oak and vanilla, prospects of alcohol, spicy yeasty overtones. Taste is very sweet malty, notes of toffee, BA notes of vanilla, oak, Bourbon, treacle, tiramisu, Kahla, warming and slightly burning alcohol; oily texture, very sticky palate, lasting sweet malty finish. Hard, heavy, starkly, pretentious, not pure pleasure. Kind of "grokotziger Schwanzersatz".

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Strong aromas of port wine, raisin, rum, cooked sugar, some alcohol. Very dark red, almost black, with a minimal head. Sweet, sticky, warming, very aromatic, very chewy. Medium bodied. Very complex, an awesome sipper.

750 ml bottle is 2014 vintage labeled "Sucr" aged in bourbon barrels. Thanks for sharing Huhzubendah! Pours a hazy translucent brown with light bourbon booziness over the top of caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is same with slight coconut notes in addition to mild bourbon complexity and caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied with active carbonation. A world class beer by a world class brewery.

pfc514 (141) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Sucre version (Bourbon Barrel Aged.) Pours a root-beer brown into a snifter. Light tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of bourbon, caramel, and a faint bite of alcohol. Bourbon is definitely very prominent in the taste, with some dark fruits and almost licorice elements in the flavor as well. At the end theres a soapy bitterness, that, while not unpleasant, is strange. For a 17.6% beer, not super boozy, with slight alcohol heat at the end.
