Smoke from the Oak (Rum Barrel)
Brewer: Captain Lawrence Brewing
Style: Smoke Beer
Smooth cocoa-like porters are natural vehicles for both smoky iterations and barrel aging. Captain Lawrence’s founder Scott Vaccaro realizes the potential for both with his Smoke From the Oak porter. The brewery issues versions aged in both rum barrels and apple brandy barrels. We’ve found that most rum barrel-aged beers feature unpleasantly harsh alcohol features, but Captain Lawrence tames these flavors impressively allowing the barrels’ vanilla notes to gracefully accent the smoke and roast of the base beer.
