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.

Bottle. Large tan head. A very intense smoke aroma. Smells just like a fireplace to me. Hard to smell alot more then that. Very smooth to drink. Again the smoke aroma and flavor is pretty intense. Small notes of coffee, chocolate and malts. With all of the smoke in the aroma and taste. It almost seems burnt to me. Pretty good but not one I will seek out again.

Dark and robust in nature. Flavor is full of smoky flavor. This makes this a very distinct beer. Different from anything else I’ve tried. Pours with tan head with malts and toffee. Alcohol does not show until the end of palate. Very good.

Delicious and sweet. Smokey and smooth. Tis delicious!

Pours up dark but clean. Aroma of burnt malt,chocolate, and a charcoal grill. A smooth even tast of chocolate, malt, light alcoho. and kick ass smoke. A smooth even texture with excellent carbonation. Did I say damn smokey? How do they do that?.

2005. very dark brown/black with a medium off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate with some smoke in the background. Taste is roast, chocolate/coffee, and smoked malt. The smoke is somewhat subdued which suprised me, but well done.

2005 bottle, a big thanks goes to acertain for this one. Pours an opaque dark brown/black with a medium-light tan head...pretty decent retention. Certainly getting smoke elements form the aroma as well as the expected coffee and chocolate...perhaps a bit of peat. The flavor is similar with more bitter chocolate coming through as well as the peat...the smoke is nice and suttle, creeping around until the coffee and smoke finish. The body is about what I would expect for a porter, full bodied but not overly heavy gving it a nice drinkability. Malty and roasty in the front working its way to a bittersweet and dry finsih. Everything to this beer works pretty well, nothing is too overpowering nor subdued.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Nearly black, moderate tan head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is huge smoke with the typical porter notes, softer chocolate and roast. Lighter body, even for the style.
