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.

750ml bottle thanks to Darrel (share on 6/11/16). Hazy dark amber pour with a small ring of beige head. Like Sucre, big boozy aroma and taste, with elements of vanilla sweetness and woody elements. Some smoky hints as well recalls toasted marshmallows. Another bomb from the Bruery.

Capped 750 shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of bourbon vanilla and dark treacle. Med ++ body (or full). Flavor is bourbon/vanilla/wood/dark treacle/dark fruit. Clearly not smoky Scotch here. Its sweetish, treaclish, heatish, fruitish. Extremely delicious.

750, capped and waxed. Probably from Perrys Liquor a few months ago. Pours really brown black with some light tan bubbles. Aroma is sweet, astringent, oaky, bourbon. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Heat is noticeable, but the heavy body tends to hide it - until it goes down. Warms the tum. Flavor is a touch sour, a touch fruit, oak/wood, definitely bourbon, and maybe some bitter. Finish is smooth, with light lingering sour. Im starting to imagine some chocolate - if so its very dark. Good drink for sure.

Bottle from Monument Wines. Pours brown with a thin beige head and a sour wild yeast aroma. There is a rich sour brown flavor with heavy amounts of oak and whiskey. A pleasure to drink.

jake65 (3493) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle share, labeled as the Bourbon Barrel Aged Bois, thanks to syndicate Im sure another big badass Bruery beer. A deep brown color with a small ring of creamy beige head. Nose is rich, boozy. Woody, vanilla, and bourbon. Big sweet flavor, more impact from the barrel treatment along with vanilla, toffee, and dark fruits. Decadent.

Vestergaard (2052) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 26, 2016
Bottle shared fourways. Pours a dark, clear, reddish brown with a bubbly, tan head. Aroma has bourbon, coconut, toffee, booze, caramel, vanilla, prunes, dates, figs, some cherries. Taste is surprisingly port vinous acidic, woody, dry, sweet licorice, caramel, coconut sweet. Long, barrel dry, fruity after taste. Well hidden alcohol, smooth, oily body, average, slightly fizzy carbonation. Tasty, vinous and nice!

Countbeer (6387) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Bottled as Sucre: Served in a Chouffe glass: Brown ish beer with a ruby shine and a creamy head. Aroma seems to be mainly consisting out of cognac. A light vanilla, wood, bourbon and caramel tint are present. Flavour is a bit sweet with caramel, sugars, toffee and berries as well as a good more present hint of vanilla and wood. Some spice/alcohol, vanilla fudge and liquor drenched sweetwood. Aftertaste is bitter, vanilla, light herbal and malty. Low carbo, light creamy thicker mouthfeel, close to full bodied. Heavy but delicious!

tmoreau (4086) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 On tap at Johns Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., and snifter served showing a murky, deep brown color, with a fingers width of tan head foam that reduced to a persistent ring, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was sweet caramel & toffee, barrel/oaky hints, cherry wood & skins, and lurking, bourbony alcohol. Medium to full bodied, with decent spritz to the effervescence, the taste was similar notes, tart cherry, a touch of Port-like vinosity, and brown sugar sweetness that was a bit too cloying for me. Still a smooth sipper, with pleasant, bourbony warmth, but not noticeably16.2%. Again as a 750 ml. bottle sample at WCDs 2016 distributor expo. Added esters as prune, fig, and currant, some barrel induced vanilla, tanginess, syrupy texture, but understandably softer carbonation from the continuous jostling of the bottles. Also caught a hint of cocoa on the back upon warming as an additional item of increased complexity. +.1
