COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The dark, robust body and pronounced smoky flavor of this limited edition beer make it an adventuresome taste experience. Alaskan Smoked Porter is produced in limited "vintages" each year and, unlike most beers, may be aged in the bottle, much like fine wine.

Originally rated on 12/4/08. Thankfully I finally found some of this, my bottle was brewed in 08. Aroma was a nice smokey presence not too strong, not too weak, good balance. Also there were hints of fruit and coffee. Predominant flavor of smoke with hints of chocolate and coffee, mouthfeel was a little on the thin side but not bad. I am not a big fan of smoked beers but, overall it was a pretty good porter thats worth a try.

Echon (366) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2016
(2008 vintage). Black. Mostly roasted but also somewhat smoked aroma and flavour. Not that rich. Moderately sweet and bitter taste. Medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Overall, a good porter but nothing outstanding. It could easily be more smoked and full.

samires (99) - POLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Black with small white head. Medium malty sweetness with hints of caramel, loads of coffee, chocolate and some faint roastiness complimented by solid dose of smoky notes reminiscing campfire. Avarage bitterness and medium body, slick texture, medium carbonation. Complex yet drinkable, you can dive into smoke and find chocolaty and coffee with roastiness and caramel sweet backbone.

ALIBALI (684) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2016 Elche, Hirsche ich werd wahnsinnig, denn kurz voher erschnupperte ich die Dämpfe des verbrannten Leders zum ersten Mal. Im Mund formen sich dann ausgefallene Rauch, Röst und fruchtig süße Flavours zu einem Ganzen zusammen. Die anfänglich dominante Säure wird schnell von der Hopfenbittere abgefedert und das alles im gekonnt von röstmalzigen Rauchungen flankierten Korpus. Rund und extrem gut drinkable. 0,66l Bottle von BEYOND BEER IN HH. 12€.
