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.

Scopey (8231) - 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 (2753) - 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.

Westmeister (1978) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2015
HMOG 2015. This one was interestsing and now reading the description, it makes some sense. Couldn’t grasp it at the time, but char, peat, wood, caramel, cocoa, booze, sweet, unbalanced.

hopscotch (9952) - 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!

tectactoe (2925) - Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Dark, dense brown, black once it couples into the glass with a bubbly, gray-beige head skimmed softly along the top. Aroma with a light smokiness up front, honestly less than expected. Nice sweet campfire element to it; notes of woodsy maple syrup, booze, sweet black cherries, charred oak lathered in burnt molasses, & a moderate amount of roasted malt. Taste is a little more smoky, & gains some steam as it warms up. Liquid smoke & faint charcoal, dark fudge, molasses, maple syrup, ashy wood, & a hint of smoked meats. The booze is pretty potent with a warming bourbon burn during each swallow... 16.2% ABV will do that, I guess. Bitter cacao nib, charred oak, & moderate sweet-smoke finish. A nice beer.

AdamJackson (3309) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Had this lsat night split 5 ways with some friends. Pour is murky almost black pour. Light head, nose is sweet with chocolate, coffee, hazelnut and a touch of smoke, smells pretty good. Taste though you get an explosion of peat, latex and charcoal ash. the sweetness of bois does balance it out nicely.

WillRunForBeer (1127) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2014
From notes. Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours medium brown with a scant beige head. Aroma is earthy oxidized caramel, smoke. Flavor follows, oaky, smoky finish. I had no idea this was 16%.

AirForceHops (4034) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle purchased from the RS. Aroma is chocolate malts, light smoke, mild oak. Like the nose.

The flavor does show the Bois which I enjoy. The Smoking wood comes through toward the finish. Medium body, ashy texture. Ok. The impressive thing is it does not display the ABV any place.
