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

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.
