Beer added by: phichifiji00 on 11-20-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, and aged in rye whiskey barrels, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.

750 ml bottle. No dates.

Pours a very dark black, almost tar black. Frothy, brown head that settles to a thin cover and leaves some nice lacing.

Smoked wood, caramel and chocolate. Some cherries and chicory.

Nice mouth if dried smoke, with some cherry wood. Chatted oak staves and dark fruits. Some salted caramel sweetness. Very dry, with a lingering smoke essence.

Wonderful smoked beer. Very nicely done.
