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.

Botted: Dark reddish brown coloured. Brown dense head. Swees, meat, roast and light smoke in the aroma. Flavour is smoked and roasty and has these bacon/meat flavours that I find really interesting in these smoked beers. Full bodied. Has a sweet and smoky end. Really dig this beer.

Vintage 2002. Loads of smoke and roastiness in the aroma, these things really suits each other very well, some notes of smoked pork too. Mmmm. Dark brown to black body with a red tint, small brown head. Roasty flavor, along with a nice smokyness, the smoke is not so big in the flavor as it was in the aroma, some coffee notes. I thnk the flavor could use a bit more smoke. A fantastic beer!

22oz. bomber. Poured a deep ruby, almost black color. I took one whiff of this brew and it brought back a childhood flashback of smoking salmon, smoking jerky.... well just about any wood smoked item. Holy crap, batman, can you say smoke? However, in all the aroma madness I was experiencing..... when i got to the actual tasting, it all blended and mellowed out. This beer has a big bark but a soft bite, which is actually a very good thing, as I was expecting to drink liquid creosote, but instead was treated to a wonderful glass of what tasted like roasted and smoked chocolate goodness. I only wish I can buy a case of this beer.

Slightly muddy dark brown colour. Rich smoke character with sweet chocolatey porter notes and light hints of roast. Just meaty stuff this is. Flavour is very balanced, with good sustained smokiness and beautifully extracted milk chocolatey malts. I like the fact that I had it at Archer’s - Rick wouldn’t carry this beer because one year it was so smoky nobody would buy it.

Nice smoked salmon scenting brewski. I was bumming around so I did not have a glass for this beauty. Still enjoyable. Pretty thin. I could use a little girth in it. Nice scent and smokey taste, however. r8 on!

Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Aroma= roasty dark malt with a mellow smokieness Apperance= Dark brown to black, and rocky head Flavor= Full of flavor, the smoke here is great a touch of peaty and bacon but not even cloying, very balnced and chewy Palate= Medium full and compliments the big flavors and helps in their balance Overall= A great Smoked beer that doesn’t chase you away with its smoke flavor. The Smoke is married so nicely in this beer that you can drink a few back to back! 2005 edition sampled

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 13, 2005
(2005 22 oz. bottle from http://hitimewine.com/) Pours jet black with medium-size tan head. Scant lacing. Smells of bacon and sweet maltiness. Mouthfeel smooth but surprisingly thin. Flavor starts moderately smoky, then some mildly bitter coffee, then a grassy aftertaste. Rats! What happened? Was expecting big things here. Maybe this does have to be aged awhile before drinking, but still should be a standout beer even without that, I’d think.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Sampled at the Labor Day Ohio gathering, but didn’t write down who donated this beer, sorry, thanks though. Pours somewhat transparent brown with no head. Nice smoky presence in aroma not too overwhelming, with a decent malt backbone. Flavor is dominated by smoke(in a good way), again with some roasted grain/malt in the finish. Lingering smoky aftertaste. Pleasantly surprised as I’m not a fan of smoked beers.

2005. This is an incredible porter. Pour is black with brown bubbles one could consider the head. The aroma is smoky and heavy with malt. The taste is perfect. Smoked malts do not overwhelm the light coffee tones, but are very well balanced. Smooth and thick enough to enjoy repeatedly.
