Smoky beers aren't my "thing" and I sometimes have gone so far as to avoid trying them, but the Smoking Woods are hard to say "no" to. Tried the bourbon barrel-aged one last weekend for the first time. I prefer this one over the rye barrel-aged version.They're similar, but for whatever reason I enjoyed this one more than the rye BA beer.

I gave this a 4.5 on Untappd, but in retrospect it probably lies somewhere between a 4-4.25, with 4.25 being the most I could give it. (I rounded up on UT.) I remember this beer being smooth, easy-to-drink (it's a sipper, though) and interesting. Would like to try some more sometime, but won't go out-of-my-way.

4 stars + change. Good stuff.

Bottle from Tipples shared with the wife. Pours black with a small brown head that recedes relatively quickly. Aroma of chocolate, peat, bourbon, smoke, toffee. Flavor is a big peaty smoke flavor, different from the rye version, some bourbon, sweet chocolate. Heavy bodied with low plus carbonation and very smooth. This was really good but I like the rye whiskey version better. Smoke is less pronounced with this bourbon version and it sort of has a peaty scotch note to it. Also less spice here. Nevertheless a really nice big beer.
