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.

On tap@Pizza Port Solana: Dark brown almost black in color. Small (bar pour) tan head. Aroma of smoked ham. Flavor is malty with smoke and a light stout like bitterness. Light palate. I probably would have liked it more if it was not served so COLD.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Reminds me of a nice camp fire at a camp where the counselors are horny and thereís a masked maniac roaming the woods with a chip on his shoulder... Very tasty. Let it get to almost room temperature before you drink. Trust me. Nice, NICE bits of smoke and burning wood. The taste immediately transports the imbiber to a simpler place, where the day begins with the sun and the day ends with the last spark of the campfire. Exquisite mouthfeel that spreads the smokey goodness throughout the mouth. Not to be missed.

2004 edition - 23 oz. Wonderful wife had 6 of these shipped to me for Christmas :-) Definite smoky aroma and taste, but not too much. Gets even better as it warms - a refined taste. Didnít taste chocolate, a hint of coffee though. I have four left Iíll save for special occasions.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 2004 bomber. This didnít seem like it would blow me away considering that it smelled like smoked salmon, but it tastes great. Smoke with salmon and bacon hints and a creamy, almost vanilla finish. A smooth, unique, and delicious beer.

poured a near black with a light brown head. smoke is evident in the aroma. i spent a minute just taking it in. sharp almost like a smokehouse full of cured meats. mmmmmmm,(insert homerís drool here)cured meats. flavor is chocked full of smoke flavor with a bitter edge. roasted coffee and ham flavors that are strange yet wonderful together. i couldnít see myself drinking too many in one sitting, but this is a damn fine brew that i will look forward to having again. wow, this beer truly gets better as it warms.

thx. santa! Ruby, near black. Smoky fishy nose - iodine/single malt esque. Sweet cocolate at first, then a smoky fish/bacon/iodine thing. Fishy iodine finish. Overwhelming but interesting.

2004 Version- Deep black in color with a creamy tan head. Lots of roasted coffee aroma with a thick creamy coffee chocolate taste. Bitter finish. Such a lively taste on the tongue.

2004 bottle. Dark brown color, almost stout dark, tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a mild blend of dark chocolate malt and a hint of smokiness. Great smoky flavor dominates with notes of dark chocolate malt, very earthy. A hint of hop bitterness comes through in the finish. Mouthfeel is quite smooth. A solid offering, makes the smoke in the Stone Smoked Porter seem pedestrian.

Dark brown coloured body a nice tan head. Aroma of smoked peat and about nothing else. Medium-bodied; Full smokey flavour with a nice full taste. Aftertaste smokey and dark. Overall, great to drink and very nice to be able to sample. Thanks to EyedrinkAle for this beer! I sampled this 65 cL bottle after the RB party at Founderís in Alexandria, Virginia at Mikeís (the_beer_god) hotel room on 20-November-2004.
