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.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle shared at the chriso Easter 2015 tasting - London. Many thanks to T-Bois for this 16%er. Pours oily black with a light tan foam head. Great nose, lots of peat, maple syrup, toffee. Hugely sweet flavor - go figure! - with some burnt toffee, well ripened dark fruits, maple, faint peat. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Hot finish with notes of dark fruits, figs, mellow peat, dark bread, fruitcake. Very solid.

kathouse (1607) - Nevada, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Big nose of brown sugar, figs, oak, and toffee. Deep caramel sweetness and dark fruits cannot hide the alcohol, but the smoke and spice compliment it very well. Very nice sipper.

Bottle. Aroma: Butterscotch, maple syrup, milk chocolate, vanilla, raisin, fig, alcohol, smoky whiskey. Smoke isn’t as pronounced as the fruit and barrel notes. Flavor: smokier. Alcohol is big, with more smoky whiskey notes. Dark chocolate, vanilla bean, tons of charred oak. Booze and smoke get in the way of the underlying flavors a bit. Overall: A man’s beer. Nice for sipping in a study, while wearing spectacles and perusing a volume of some sort.

750. Thanks, J! Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy light tan mousse that settles away quickly. Big sweet smoky nose, showing walnuts, roast meat, cola, and soft campfire. Sticky thick body with slugging carb. Candied smoke, black walnuts, sweet cola, and roast meat on the mid palate. Long sticky smoky finish. Nice one.
