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.

Well done. The nuances in this make it work really well. Smoked malt and wood aromas. Dark brown in color with a light tan head. It appears rich. Medium weight with good carbonation. The beer has smoke essences but they don’t overpower. Roasted malts blend with wood and coffee character. I felt like I should outside on the porch in the winter while drinking this. Really good.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
A fine beer. Quite smoky with a good bitterness on top of hints of dates, chocolate and coffee. However, there’s perhaps a tad more sour flavor here than I personally appreciate.

Cervesa fumada molt intensa i gustosa, cada glop és diferent. Cerveza ahumada muy intensa y sabrosa, cada sorbo es diferente.

Davhgbrew (938) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2014
Aroma of peat smoke is rich and sweet. Creamy full bodied mouthfeel initially and leads to a watery middle and finish. Charcoal smokiness and roasted malt are the theme. Had off draft at yardhouse seattle. With 119 taps I question their quality. I need to buy a bottle of this to compare, because this is simply not great.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a dark drown from the bottle with thin bubbly tan head. Aroma was heavy on the smoke, but earthy vegetal notes behind it and a kiss of english yeast. Taste is more towards the smoke and wood, hints of earth and roast. A little heavy on the smoke, but not crazy overbearing, wonder how old this was.

laidbackbloke (58) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2014
Perfect balance between porter-ish style and color and smokiness. Pours dark with medium tan head, disappearing rather quickly. Pungent aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Long aftertaste of smoke and chocolate. I fully recommend

Derbeth (307) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle, 2012 edition. Black colour, tan. Aroma: smoked, a bit like from a camp-fire rather than from smoked ham, quite strong, but not unpleasant; dark malt, a bit ash, some dark chocolate. Medium bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Complex, yet not too aggressive. Really enjoyable.

Bottle from Csak a Jó Sör. 2012 edition. Aroma smoky, chocolate, roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is roasty, smoky, light chocolate. Overall rather bitter with very light roasted astringency (OK). Roasted finish, moderate duration. Very good one.

Look: Pours with huge, thick, mostly very fine bubbles (some big ones in the middle), head. Good, slow, sticky retention (big bubbles breakdown principle). Leaves a thin, creamy top layer and fair amount of lacing. Dark brown with strong amber hue, can’t see through but seems relatively clear.

Smell: Smoked, first associations were of light pork meat but combined with salty notes it creates a raw smoked salmon smell - fantastic. Also some light fruity notes, watermelon and little sweet tomatoes. Porter backbone is present, but light - milk chocolate warmth. It’s very clean.

Taste: Light sweet middle, some hints of chocolate, caramel, dates, coffee. Very light sour and mineral notes. All builds up and goes to very clear, clean medium bitterness, mostly ash smoke with a bit of roast. Very smooth, light porter milkiness with light hop presence at the end too.

Mouthfeel: Medium, medium heavy body feel, silky, smooth - very good. Fills the mouth completely.

Overall: It’s very clean, the salmon smoke character is very unique and outstanding, porter backbone is barely noticeable. A very interesting example of the style and good representation that the smoke can do some unique and superb shit.
