The Bruery Smoking Wood
From The Bruery – Smoking wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. Brewed with several kinds of smoked malt, and aged in rye whiskey barrels, this 10% ABV imperial smoked porter is one of our favorite beers at the moment. Smoking Wood is full bodied with light spiciness, with flavors of toasted oak, caramel and vanilla that work to balance the smokiness and create an intense yet refined flavor profile.
