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.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2006
2005 bomber. Translucent dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin but lacy tan head. Aromas of smoke, coffee some and molasses, vaguely reminiscent of bacon. Medium body and moderate carbonation. The taste starts sweet, with doffee and roasty malt. Smoky bitter finish. When you’re in the mood for a beer like this it really hits the spot.

oh6gdx (21405) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled (should have been rating #2000, but due to miscalculation at SBWF, it became #1999). Dark brown opaque colour, minor brown head, which quickly disappear into random brownish floating bubbles. Aroma is leather, roast, malts with a slight hoppy edge. Flavour is roasted malts, smoked wood and some hops balancing up the finish. Quite sticky palate. Aftertaste is pleasant roasted malts.

Dominated by a smokey aroma which carries over into a smokey dominated taste. A great beer to drink on a cold day. Also leaves a distinctive taste in recipes that call for beer.
