COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, and aged in bourbon 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.
The previous release of Smoking Wood was aged in rye whiskey barrels while this more limited version was aged in bourbon barrels, contributing a different nuance to the already complex ale.

anstei (3783) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 25, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2019 Bottle, vintage 2014. Pours black. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, toffee, some coffee and smoke. Body is heavy and strong, low smoke, liquid caramel, chocolate, low carbonation. Some abrasive tar on the palate, but otherwise super smooth. Sweet palate, intense and rich. Amazing.

Inky black pour with a creamy khaki-colored head. Aroma is that of bourbon, creosote and soy sauce. Flavor is full bodied and bold with heavy doses of bourbon, some chocolate notes, a bit of molasses and dates and some back end soy sauce notes. Not quite cloying, but n the neighborhood near the bottom of the pour. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Not the hugest bourbon barrel aged fan - but this one drank pretty good. Thanks to Jame at Proof for the bottle share,

Aurelius (6326) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Nice wine-style bottle, inky pour, no head. Vaporous aroma, all the inviting vanilla, cocoa, impy stout aroma elements. Viscous. Fairly sour and whiskeyish. Thanks to Jme down at Proof.

mateuszk (2769) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 3, 2017
Bottle, 2014. Lots of bourbon, oak, nice vanilla and proper porterish notes of chocolate and dried fruits. Full bodied, sweetish, smooth. Finish bit boozy, sweet. Great brew.

Pours dark brown but is pitch black in the glass. Tan colored head. Aroma is powerful, bourbon, booze, chocolate, green coffee beans, smokey, oak, dark fruits. Flavour is dark chocolate, huge smoked note, green pepper skin, green coffee beans, oak, lots of booze and whiskey. Full body, sticky mouthfeel, warm and light dry finish. A winter sipper. Wow!

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. W zasadzie esencja ciemnego, mocnego piwa leżakowanego w beczkach po bourbonie. Szkoda, że w piwnicy została mi ostatnia butelka.
