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.

kathouse (1914) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 14, 2013
Medium hazy brown with a quickly dying foam. Love the aroma! Golden Graham cereal, brown sugar, bourbon, caramel, and heavy cream. Full and warm from the alcohol. Oak and bourbon flavors are rich with molasses, toffee, and dark fruits. Finish is deliciously sweet and fruity. Loved every version of this.

W aromacie przyjemnie, toffi, rodzynki i wanilia. W smaku za to mocno marcepanowe, do tego ciemne owoce, dużo figi tutaj jest. No i niestety coś co dużo ujmuję temu piwu. Alkohol, który bardzo mocno grzeje. Wiadomo to piwo ma 17%, więc nic dziwnego że czuć alkohol, ale w innym piwie z The Bruery - Colonel Kernel które ma prawie 15% udało się świetnie schować alkohol. 2 lata w piwnicy dużo dobrego zrobi dla tego piwa, bo wszystko poza alko jest bardzo przyjemne.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Wonderful brew with a sweet malty taste. Great alcohol presence and the alcohol burn is so mild and sexy. Love the brew. Caramel and honey. Roasted raisins/cherries... Perfect.

Joakgust (1460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2017
Fruet version. Bottle. Hazy red amber beer with a small beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, molasses, herbs, vanilla, vinous and oak. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, honey, herbs, dried fruit, vanilla, oak and vinous tones. Sweet.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2017
On tap @ The Growler. This is a cloudy looking one, almost a little murky and deep plum brown in colors. On the top a medium sized dense beige heavy lacing head. Really like the nose. It’s both a little sourish and very malt caramelly sweet. Loaded with dried fruits, vanilla, wood, berries and malt biscuits. Smells really nice. Sugary sweet at times but not cloying at all. Yeah, mine kind of aroma. Tastes wonderful. Dried and really berry sweet. Blue and blackberries with those small sweet plums. It’s thick and oily in the mouth while soft gentle on the prickling carbonation. A little licorice, tones of cigar, some tarmac, vanilla and a lovely intense dried fruity finish containing dates ang figs. A beautiful one. 19.06.2017

explosivedog (1288) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2017

Aus der Flasche Cuivre 7th Anniversary (2015) 2016-12 getrunken. Dieses sau leckere Schwergewicht läßt sich ganz schwer zu beschreiben. Der brtitische Old Ale Stil ist sehr gut getroffen und das Bourbon BA fügt sich sehr gut ein ohne das Bier zu dominieren. Spitzenklasse!

Tried bruery's cuivre at paradiso D.C. That's the beer rated here. Beer buddy says it's the same beer as bruery's poterie. Paradiso says this one is the 7th anniversary beer & poterie is 8th. Lovely quad but a bit too bubbly for the style. Nearly 17%. Foggy color so unfiltered? Cinnamon nose. Coats the young but flavor strongest on the edges. Wonderful, slightly sharp, very durable after taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (7936) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
750ml bottle (thanks Harri). Bit hazy dark chestnut color. No head. Massive alcohol, toffee, bit woody in aroma. Alcohol, caramel, cognac, oak in taste. Cognac, alcohol and caramel in aftertaste. Harsh to drink. Boozy fckin stuff!

VamboladeTolly (2120) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2017
