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.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2012
2012 bottle.
Appearance: The body is a beautiful dark brown, it appears clear but its 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 theres 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 Ill age for a while and see how it turns out.

Dlaczego Cuivre i Poterie są traktowane jako jedno piwo? Dramat. CUIVRE: Barely Wine idealny. Potęga ciemnych owocw, suszonej figi i śliwki, rodzynek, melasy, karmelu, wanilii, szlachetnego alkoholu. Wybitne piwo.

heman (736) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Piwo ma piękną, głęboka burgundową barwę. Aromat słodki, zwiastujący słodowego potwora. Cała masa suszonych, ciemnych owocw, melasa, cukier kandyzowany. W tle nuty orzechowe i kawowe. Całość zwieńczona wyraźną nutą alkoholową. W smaku to czego można było się spodziewać - olbrzymia gęstość, przywodząca na myśl babcine nalewki. Owoce suszone, orzechy i czekolada. Alkohol wyraźny i lekko drażniący gardło, finisz z bourbon-owymi posmakami. Każdy łyk przypomina smakowanie belgijskich czekoladek z alkoholem.

mgajdaczewa (1801) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 25, 2016
W aromacie jest nutella, czekolada z orzechami, potężny bourbon, wanilia, niestety alko też, ale tu to można wybaczyć. W smaku bardzo podobnie, znw nutella z bourbonem, z tym, że jak dla mnie nieco brakuje ciała i strutury no i alkohol wciąż jest zbyt agresywny. Doznania smakowe niesamowite, choć nie jest to diament bez skaz.

GTAEgeek (2017) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Sampled from a 750 mL bottle in line at Zwanze. This was Fruet, the fourth anniversary version. Pours hazy brown, with a tan ring. Vanilla and toasted oak are the first things I note in the aroma, with some caramel, cardamom, pine, and a bit of licorice. Sweet and boozy, with a little bit of bitterness. Heavy body, sticky, syrupy, and clingy. This is a lovely, bourbon-forward, complex and interesting beer.

rumore (113) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 30, 2016
American beers tasting at FOB, Rimini, Italy. The beer pours dark caramel brown, with little to no foam. Aroma is great, with EVERYTHING popping out: liquorice, spirits, chocolate and more. Taste is consistent, lots of sweetness mixed with some bitterness and a clear value added from the aging in bourbon barrels. Aftertaste is also wonderful, with more liquorice coming up, as well as more alcohol. Body is relatively dense. Overall, a masterpiece.

cmacklin (928) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a medium, short lived, tan head that fully dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, toffee, dark fruit, licorice, dark chocolate, vanilla and oak with a bourbon warming finish. Full body with a sticky, oily texture and soft carbonation. Wow, lots of complexity. Excellent, a world class old ale.
