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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2012
2012 bottle.
Appearance: The body is a beautiful dark brown, it appears clear but it’s hard to tell, there is almost no head, just a thin tan head with poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is very heavy on oak, very woody, light bourbon notes, hints of vanilla, almost all barrel here, but there’s some dark fruits as well, grapes come to mind.
Taste: This is dominated by dark fruits, black cherries, grapes, very wine-like. The barrel notes are very tame compared to the aroma, oak is throughout with some bourbon and light vanilla on the finish, warming alcohol goes down the throat.
Palate: Thick and very lightly carbonated.
Overall: This is very winey and I like it, this is complex and a very good sipper, my biggest gripe with this is the price and getting the wax off. I have another bottle I’ll age for a while and see how it turns out.

ciocanelu (2951) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle, as "Saule". Light brown color with beige head. Aroma pops with bourbon and toffee, follows with fudge and dried fruits, mostly dates. Taste has sweet fruity notes like dates and figs, bourbon, brown sugar and some booze. Medium body and carbonation. Complex, tasty and a bit boozy.

Pallleon (470) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 4, 2017
Homályos barna szín, gyorsan eltűnő hab. Cukros, bourbonos aroma. Erdei gyümölcsös, vaníliás, bourbonos ízvilág. Ütős.

Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 23, 2017
On tap at Pinocchio's as "Saule". Dark tea like color. Lots of grains of yeasties. Like liquid brown sugar in bourbon. Rich. Glad the glass was small, even though it's tasty.

Mariox (337) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
(The bruery Saule) W aromacie świetne ciemne owoce, słodowo-karmelowa słodycz. W smaku dość słodkie z bardzo fajnym finiszem. Alkohol dobrze ukryty jak na voltage. Całkiem treściwe. Bardzo fajne piwo.

Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
Light brown. Very sweet, honey, bourbons, sticky, big boozy finish, too.A bit too simple for a beer so big, and certainly not hitting the old ale character.

Unde (1152) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Reddish brown colour with smallish head on top. Aroma has figs, plums, dried fruits, raisin, red berries, toffee fudge, hint of alcohol. So balanced aroma. Taste is plums, dried fruits, raisin, dark fruits, dark chocolate, warming alcohol. Full oily body and low carbonation. Sweet and quite boozy.

Punkero (471) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Reddish brown. Well ripened. Super strong. Nutty. Ok, much and such. Soft... Pillowy. Ripe fruits and bourbon. Sweet. Sophisticated.

ffaoe (916) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2017
strong malty aroma, faint oat notes. dark brown in color with nice long lasting light brown head. taste is strongly malty with strong bourbon notes, a little boozy

Iznogud (4357) - CROATIA - SEP 19, 2017
On tap at Trappist, Oakland as Bruery Saule. Pours unclear brown, slightly reddish tone, with small off-white to tan head. Caramel, ripe fruit, bourbon in aroma and taste, wood, some vanilla. Sweet. Quite smooth, warming, maybe a hint of alcohol. Full bodied.

czlowiekmotyka (516) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
(Bruery Saule version). Toffee or caramel base with a qualities of a cognac. Some dried fruit in the middle. Warm in the throat like all The Brueries. Good.
