COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smoked Imperial Rye Porter aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. A rich porter layered with rye spiciness and earthy smoke, caramel-like flavors, roasty malt and oaky deliciousness.
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. This is one of our favorite beers at the moment, we hope you agree.

Smells amazing. Strongly of chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Pours jet black with dark ta head that almost completely disappears. Tastes like smoky oak with chocolate cake. Absolutely wonderful. I have to stop rating this and just drink it. You haven’t lived until you’ve had this beer. Wow!!

750 ml bottle at home - 2011 vintage - thanks to ForgetFu for this nice surprise. Pours deep brown to black with a small soapy beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, cherry oak, fine whisky and even some cognac, liquorice, tar, leather. Medium body with loads of sweetness and a bit of alcohol in the finish, low on carbonation. Taste is candi Sugar, peaty saltiness and a bit of plums. Nice beer!

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong smoke notes as well as some oak and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of ashy smoke character as well as some dark fruit, heavy rye and oak. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice smoked beer.

Haslinger (863) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2013
2012 bottle. smells like a nice warm fire on a crisp fall night. Tastes like chocolate flavored whiskey. The smoke is well balanced and doesn’t linger too much after the sip unlike many smoked beers. Could not taste any alcohol, very well hidden 13% that will sneak up on you. Perfect fall beer Delicious would buy again!

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Brown pour with minimal head. Dominant smokiness but it’s tempered well by the wood and spice notes. A little warm on the palate but still pleasurable.

On tap @ Proletariat New York. Pours pitch black with a big creamy mocha head. Aroma is burned malts and tobacco, as well as leather vanilla and muscovado. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Tremendous sweet and complex flavour with oak, leather and tobacco, as well as vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits and prunes. Long sweet finish with tobacco, vanilla and oak. A really nice and complex brew.
