Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A - Dark cola body. Light khaki head pours a half finger high with ok retention and low lace.

S - Whoa. Chocolate, rum cake, Raisinets, caramel, and vanilla extract highlight a huge, delicious core of rich banana bread, walnuts and bran muffins.

T - Holy crap. Thick, bold and sweet with caramel, molasses, dark chocolate liquor, raisin bran, and vanilla. Warm Drambuie booze warps itself around the sweet center and pulls out darker stone fruits from the profile. Buckwheat honey, oak, pumpernickel bread, and spiced rum cake on the back end. Peat smoke through the finish.

M - Thick, smooth, syrupy body.

O - Big, boozy, sweet, complex, and surprisingly smooth.

A beautiful "mistake" by Bruery with the backstory of how this beer was created with a mistake of pulling of the beers into the other's fermenter.

The Smoking Wood takes a back seat of its smokiness, but still offers the roasted malt to help this brew out. In general, the Bois stands out this its rich sweetness, and the barrel of oak and vanilla shine through.

Not as incredible as Smokey and the Bois as the smoke is slightly hidden, but still a really incredible blend.
