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.

Bottled. Black in coloured with a rather large brownish head. Very smooth mouthfeel. Roasted malty and some notes of caramel. Hoppy and slightly dry finish. Notes of chocolate and smoke.

22 oz bottle via Captial Market. Pours almost pitch black with a massive tan head. Nose is the smokiest i have ever experienced. Reminds of sitting in front of a camp fire roasting/burning marshmellows. Taste like it smells. Starts with some sweet burnt marshmellows, some malts, and even some smoked hops in the finish. I think there is a bit of coffe flavor in there aswell. It is all very smooth though, rounded and balanced. Light carbonation. Medium body. Very nice...

TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - FEB 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 2005 Pours a nice dark, dark brown with a dark tan color in the head. The smell is of a smoked brew and you know it right away. The flavor is the same, very up front smoked taste along with the chocolate and alcohol taste. A little thick for this to be VERY drinkable, but a solid brew in any case.

A nice smoked porter that puts the smoke flavor as an addition to the beer and not a focus. Went great with a steak. Doesnít have the extreme smoke aftertaste that some have. Nice and well rounded.

This was a dissapointment for me. Beef jerky and liquid smoke aroma from a black body with a brown head. The palate is the best part--smooth and creamy. Coffee and some thin malt flavors up front with a a slight bitterness in the background. Nothing here that blew me away, and Iíve had other smoked brews that were better in my opinion.

2005 bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with ruby edges and a tan head. Aroma of smoked meats at first, but thereís a bit of chocolate behind it. Taste follows same sequence of smoke hiting first, quickly followed by some sweet chocolate and some light tangy citrus tastes. At the finish, itís like the smoke becomes more of a burnt flavor, but I can still breath that meatiness. I also taste the traditional porter roast. Medium body, pretty creamy, and the carbonation is a little bit high. I think the name of this beer explains itself; itís the best of both the porter and the rauchbier world. Gosh I love smoked beers.

On tap @ SD brewing Co: The color on this brew is amazing. Dark brown, almost black. Looks almost velvet like. The smell is smoke and maybe some roasted coffee. Nice lacing. Flavor is smokey, but very subtle and not overdone. Ironically as good as this stuff smells, itís very easy to drink, and not really as rich as you may expect upon first smell. In other words, itís a beer that you could definitely drink 8 or 10 of and not even realize you had done so. Good stuff.

Pours very, very black. Just little bits of brown around the edges. Slight tan head that had no retention and receded very quickly. Nose is peat and smokiness. Oddly, for such a great flavor it is fairly simple. Just loas of smoked wood and toasty goodness. Kind of a burnt oat bread thing as well. Slight hop presence gives it enough hop bitterness to round out the flavor. Medium body that has a slight dry edge to it. Makes my tongue feel a bit like sandpaper actually. Way too easily drinkable.

Definitely one of the best smoked beers I have had to date. A very nice balance between a traditional porter and the smokiness of a smoked beer. Not overwhelming like the OFallon Smoked Porter, just a good porter with a smoke presence.
