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.

Pours dark, almost black with a creamy tan head. Nice smoke aroma. Flavor is smoke with chocolate and coffee. Finished dry. Bitterness is well balanced. Very, very yummy.

2005 22oz bomber-A dark brown almost black dark body with an aroma of smoke with a beige head that dissipates rather quickly. A nice smoke flavor on the front end then goes to malt and chocolate then back to smoke. A great tasting and well balanced beer.

2005 vintage brought hom by my parents from their trip to alaska. A surprisingly well-balanced beer. Though predominant, the smoky flavor and aroma doesn’t completely dominate the other aspects of the beer like many smoked beers. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Overall a very nice beer... It’ll be tough to keep the other one in the cellar.

2005 bomber, courtesy of tpkenned.
Pretty pour to a near opaque body. Mirth black body with mahogany edges underneath a creamy, thin and deep tan fizz layer, which recedes to separated ice sheaf for the head. Aroma has its act together. Flame licked hickory with dark chocolate fudge melting and falling off the edges, burnt mocha chip cookies, depth defying incinerated caramel, pulsing black licorice in the backdrop and fallen pieces of burnt rubber tire scraps for good will. Flavor segways into looming centennial trees with a fire break at the basin and baked black chocolate fudge injected in the cleave. Turtle mocha chocolate bricks thrown onto the summer grill with no slit to let the smoke escape. Burnt and scraped semi-sweet chocolate chips. Medium-bodied and a pleasing substance that emits a mild fume cloud that fumigates all corners of the mouth. Subtle carbonation and the absolute epitome of balance. Delicatessen milk chocolate transforms the finish with an ashen air and a controlled caramel sweetness. This is one fantastically well made beer.

I am developing more of a taste for Porters, and this is one of the reasons. Wish I drank beer when I visited Juneau.

Found this in an over-priced liquor store in, of all places, Las Vegas. Slightly smoky and meaty. Flavor profile starts meat and finish with a smoked chocolatey porter. Definitely not a huge smoked beer. Kind of overrated.

way overrated in my opinion. not even particularly smoky. i guess i’ll give it points for balance and quality, but there just wasn’t enough going on for me. head was also difficult to obtain.

Bottled sample. 2005 vintage. Black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of wet maple wood, along with both vineous and dark berry fruits. Alder woodsmoke is the dominant flavor here, along with notes of mild chocolate and other roasted malts. Medium bodied, which was a bit lighter than I had expected. It lacked a bit of caramel malt and chocolate flavors for my taste, but the smoke flavor has great potency. It would be interesting to do a side-by-side tasting with this and the Stone Smoked Porter.

22 oz-bomber-Trade w/after4ever-Pours dark w/a foamy tan head-looks like a Pepsi-sure doesn’t taste like one! The smoked aroma hits you right up front. Very full & flavorful-chocolate-coffee-roasted malt-sweet cherry/vanalla even, but befinately a big smoked flavor. This is a big beer with a long flavorful finish. Makes you feel like you should be sitting around the campfire sipping it after you’ve just finished the Moose hunt!! Thanks for the trade, this was a good one!!
