Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

What an interesting beer! Jet black in color with very little head, decent retention though.

You can smell the rye as soon as you open the bottle- lots of rye, some bourbon booziness and toffee.

Tastes more like liqueur than beer really- rich and sweet, with rye, toffee, whiskey booziness but surprisingly little given the ABV. There's a little smoke in there towards the end and generally mixed in but I did not find it to be crazy smokey.

Mouthfeel is incredibly heavy but not cloying. Just sip very slowly there's a lot to savor. I'm sure this is killer during the winter months.
