Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rudzud on 02-02-2014

This rustic beer is the result of barrel aging a blend of our Anniversary, English-style old ale, with Smoking Wood, an imperial smoked rye porter. Bois Fumé, meaning 'Smoking Wood' in French, is pleasantly sweet with a dry, peaty finish.

So well blended.

The smoke comes at the end, or as it warms, the smoke comes out but initially its sweet, like Bois and the back end is charred. So well done. I really, really enjoyed this beer.

A-Black in the glass, clear amber when pouring.

S-Bourbon, some smoke, spice from the rye, roasted malt and dark fruits.

T-Starts with moderate bourbon, nice smoke, little bit of spice from the rye, dark fruits.

M-Lighter than I was expecting and a tad watery.

O-Not sure how much smoke was present when fresh but a decent beer, probably overpriced for what you get.
