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.

Bottle shared by esp0r with me and edvard, april 26th 2014. Dark brown body with a thin brown head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, roast, perfectly balanced! Sweet vanilla and caramel taste with raisins, roasted malt, plums, orange, chocolate, wine notes, complex with new layers of taste every sip. An outstanding beer!

750 mL bottle shared at an impromptu tasting at Tippins. Thanks Dom! The pour is darker garnet-ish brown with a touch of off-white head and some great lacing thats left. The aroma is delightfully sweet. There is a strong molasses presence to accompany the bourbon, and the dark fruits come through beautifully. There is a touch of vanilla and caramel on the deep inhale, with a glorious bourbon presence. This has the makings for a wonderful Old Ale. The taste starts out with the good bourbon and vanilla and moves through a great dark fruit character with a full molasses flavor bursting through on the back end. There is a light bourbon burn on the far back, and its just delightful. The mouth feel is perfect. Its pleasantly thick, viscous, with just enough carbonation to keep a light head there. The aftertaste is just wonderfully light and bourbony to go with a sweet vanilla and molasses lingering note. Delightful!

Ontape (471) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
2013 bottle. This is not really my thing but its definitely interesting. Heavy, thick and sweet. Strikes me as a beer version of port or sherry, which makes sense considering the solera blending. Chocolate, bourbon, caramel, raisin, barrel flavors, boozy warmth, Powerful stuff, worth a try. Two more sips and I wont be able to type.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Rating a bottle of Fruet as this seems to be aliased. Pours brown with a short head. Nice bourbon, chocolate and toffee aroma. Lovely taste with all of the aroma elements but adding a generous helping of dark fruitiness. Alcohol heat lurking but not oppressive; fairly drinkable for the ABV. Very nice old ale that seems to walk the line between imperial stout and barley wine.
