Alaskan Smoked Porter
Juneau, Alaska

Developed in 1988 as a variation on the smoked German style Rauchbier. There are five types of malts, two hop varieties, yeast and water in the this beer. Alaskan Smoked Porter is very dark in color with a distinct smokiness. The smoke flavor is woody and filled with all the nostalgia of a campfire. A definite burnt taste from coffee bitterness, roasted malt and dry finish hovering at 45 IBUs. With a sweet malty background and thick, heavily carbonated head this ale introduced many folks in the United States to smoked beer styles. This 6.5% ABV porter is a multiple award winner.

Hill Farmstead Twilight of the Idols
Greensboro, Vermont

A unique American porter from the Hill Farmstead Brewery. This ale is a collaboration with Grassroots Brewing in Fano, Denmark, where Shaun Hill, owner and brewmaster of Hill Farmstead served a stint as head brewer at both Fano Bryghus and Norrebro Bryghus. Twilight of the Idols is a “Winter Porter”, with cinnamon spicing added, as well as vanilla beans, chocolate and coffee beans. The beer is dark brown in color with a nut brown colored head. Vanilla and coffee are dominant, bringing about a subtle French vanilla aroma, while the spice enhances the holiday-themed pick me-up.
