The Bruery Poterie Anniversary Bourbon Barrel-Aged (2016) – Old Ale at 16.8% ABV (C$44.99 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 750 ml, packaged on 13-Apr-2016, acquired 19-Jul-2016, reviewed 26-Dec-2021)
Appearance: slightly hazy ruby brown with a short, short-lived loose beige head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: bourbon, dark fruits, toffee, oak, vanilla, nuts, coconut. (9/10) Taste: high sweet, moderate bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium-full slick body, moderate carbonation, sticky warming finish. (4/5)
Five years in the bottle, and this still reeks of bourbon upon decapping. Not that I’m complaining, you understand, just a simple statement of fact. That boozy bourbon never goes away, but additional complexity reveals upon warming. A pleasant, warming, slow sipper. (17/20)
This will be my 5,168th unique Untappd check-in.
