Drink of the Week: Victory Brewing's Otto Ale

Combining the smoky intensity of a German rauchbier with all the grace and elegance of a Belgian Trappist ale, today’s Drink of the Week—the Otto Ale from Victory Brewing—makes its mark in a sea of new seasonal brews. Rich and inviting, yet as crisp as a brisk fall day, this beer offers up sweet campfire aromas and flavors of smoked cherries, dried figs and vanilla, all wrapped up in a warm, but not overwhelming 8.1% ABV. Released just today, look for it in the coming weeks on shelves across the country. $8/750 ml, victorybeer.com for retailers
