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.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Big fruity bourbon. Dry dark chocolate and coconut. The dark chocolate is notably rich. Dry finish. Nice but I would have preferred to spend some more leisure time with this.

Scopey (8470) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO’s house of fun. Thanks to Fume T-Bois for supplying. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, juicy, vanilla, fudge, oak, dried fruits, umami and bourbon. The taste is bitter-sweet, smoke, earth, vanilla fudge, booze, dirt, dried fruits hot alcohol action with a dry finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Great aroma, but a bit rough and ready on the taste. Xolid anyhow.

The_Osprey (2916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle share at ChrisO’s. Black, small foamy brown head. Aroma is mostly meaty soy sauce with smoke, stock, alcohol. Body is medium, a little foamy, low carbonation. Taste is molasses, treacle, meaty, rubber, smoke, alcohol. Another very sweet Bruery beer. Just not my bag, but interesting to try. They should offer their beers in nip bottles.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a small, fluffy, fat-bubbled head. The aroma consists mainly of fudge - accompanied by toasted coconut and nose hair-burning spirits. Full-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of chocolate, liquor and a moderate amount of acidity. Finishes lightly acrid and carbonic with lingering alcohol heat – then warmth. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
