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.

hackobock (3971) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
August 13, 2016. Bottles at Bruery Bonanza 2016 as Cuivre, Fruet, Coton (BA) and Sucr. Thanks for sharing!
Dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet, malty, slight boozy with lots of bourbon notes, caramel, dark sugar, figs, prunes, raisins, some vanilla notes, brunt wood. Taste is sweet, malty and slightly boozy. Finish is sweet dark sugars, caramel, dried fruits, light burnt bitterness with warming alcohol. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, slight sticky texture.
Sucre was the best of the bunch, Cuivre was still a bit hot and the other were sowing signs of oxidation.

ClubGonzo (5663) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon Blbr 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a murky brown body with a small beige head. Aroma is vanilla, deep malts, raisins, nuts, wood and hints of caramel, toffee, tobacco, dark berries, cocoa and coffee. Taste is deep malty notes, vanilla, wood, alcohol, caramel and hints of spices, toffee, rum and port wine. Full body, soft carbonation. Lovely sipper from The Bruery, this one hides its high ABV elegantly and the complexity is highly pleasant.

Merci Yan pour le partage de cette orgie de sucre! Rien de mieux quune bire de type pour dgriser minuit et quart un mardi en fin de dgustation! Et puis dabord, Bruery, a rquilibre toujours le PH de lestomac aprs du De Garde avant daller au lit! Brune, liquoreuse, peu mousseuse, lourde au point que le pied de mon verre peine supporter la coupe demi remplie. Des armes de raisin secs, de bourbon, de sucre, de mlasse, de canne sucre et dalcool brun Antillais. Un gros contrat dans les circonstances! Un liquide profondment rond et liquoreux me coule en bouche et tapisse mes joues dune huile grasse et riche. Une bombe de sucre dorge, de caramel et de mlasse. Une profondeur malte langlaise et sucre lamricaine. Super size me Bruery!

lownote (584) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours a muddy brown with a big tan head. Aroma is pretty vinegar like, some alcohol, with a little sweetness. Taste is very rich. Sweet, tart, some spiciness and wood. Pretty thick body. Super complex beer but not my favorite. The tartness is a bit out of balance to make it really drinkable
