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.

Jet black with a tan head. Nose is definitely smokey. I usually don't care for smoked beers. This one was good. A little on the thin side. The smokiness masks some essence of coffee and fruit.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2004
Nose is heavy smoke with malts underneath. The appearance is darker with active brown head and thin quickly discipating. Thaste is smokey but not offensive, malts in bakck with hops finish at the back of tounge.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2004
Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma is wood smoke and roasted malts. Flavour is smokey ,but not disgustingly so, with coffee bitterness. Finish is dry and acidic.

cstuartj (1017) - Washington, USA - APR 10, 2004
By far the best smoked porter I've come across. Deep in colour and nose, lots of body, and thick hardwood smoke throughout. Dry, bitter finish leaves palate refreshed and longing for more

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2004
Coffee colored with a small tan head. Hardwood smoke in the nose, with some caramel, licorice. Wonderfully smoky flavor overlaid upon a a medium sweet, chocolatey body. Ends with a nice bitterness.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2004
473 mL bottle [2002, sampled in April 2004]: Perfect pour – English pint glass with a full creamy tan foam that tops off nicely at the brim. Golden brown. Sweet peaty aroma – bronzed ham, fiery embers and sweat fill an interesting, unique and strangely pleasant aroma. Nicely carbonated and a perfect amount of smoke – airy smoke particles and enough malty porter flavour to keep me very happy. Complexity increases as it warms. . . many different woody flavours and good bitterness, very well done.

This is a really good smoked porter, best I've ever tried. Lots of burnt wood flavor and rich complexity. give this one a try

ClarkVV (3970) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 2003 bottle. Interesting stuff here. At first I think, well they went and forgot about the beer. But as it warmed and I sipped it, I picked up a lightly hoppy amber ale in the background, a nice distinct hops quality was definitely there. Great smoke flavor, not quite as deep (well nowhere near really) as the aecht schlenkerla line. Good though, medium light body is a big drawback. 19641968. If you think this shit is good, try the aecht rauchbier urbock. That stuff will rock your world. This is practically unsmoked compared to that. Still a good beer, but in need of a serious injection of malt. Looks good, though it’s filtered. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of light smokey bacon and burnt fat. It’s funny how some beers just hint at goodness and make you want to go out and buy the better example. I am off to purchase some aecht schlenkerla.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2004
Jet black beer with a beige loose head. Intense aroma of liquorice, smoke, kippers, roasted grain and a hint of alcohol. The flavour starts smokey and burnt, but rounds out to a rich, smooth full palate and the finish is increasingly bitter although with a hint of sweetness and a full-on bonfire smoke and burnt toast taste. Very complex and tasty beer which disguises it's strength well. (sampled in bottle from Booth's supermarket, Knutsford, Cheshire)

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2004
This beer poured a dark black with a thin beige-colored head. The smell was smoky but overdone, and the taste was roasty with just the right amount of smokiness. This is a well done beer and one worth trying.
