90 Smoke Ale, Rogue Ales (OR). 7% ABV (9/09)
Slightly hazy orange amber color. Aromas of dried smoked ham and rye toast follow through on a supple entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with hints of baked apple and roasted nuts. Finishes with a crisp, dried citrus and earthy hop-accented fade. A nicely balanced, understated smoked beer that will go fantastically with sausages and a sharp cheeses.

Ludwig’s Revenge, Roy-Pitz Brewing Co. (PA). 5% ABV (9/09) %{Brewpub}
Opaque brown-black color with a fine rim of foam. Mild aromas of roasted nuts and Baker’s chocolate follow through on a round, supple entry to a dryish medium body with proscuitto and marinated cabbage and root vegetable notes. Finishes with a smoked nut shell and flint-accented fade. Not much smoke here and rather porter-like; pair with schnitzel and sauerkraut.
