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.

2013 bottle - approximately 9 months since bottling. If your a fan of smoked beer, which I am, you must seek out this beer. The porter base harmonizes perfectly with the smoke to create meat like flavor that is unique and tasty.

This is a bottle from the 2011 bottling. I worried that I had let this one cellar too long, but I was gladly mistaken. It pours with a black color and a thin, fizzy, light brown head. The aroma lets you know that it is a solid porter at its base, as there is a dark, roasty, bready sweetness, and the smoke adds a wonderful complexity rather than masking everything else. The flavor is so wonderfully meaty, with the smoked malts being much more assertive, although the smoke still doesn’t overpower the sweet and roasty characteristics of the porter. Medium bodied and having a light carbonation, the texture supports the flavors nicely. Overall, I’m a fan of smoked beers and I’m a fan of porters, and this blends the two well.

2012 Bottle - Opened May 26, 2014. Smoky flavor, not overpowering or cloying. Aroma was understated, didn't add much to my enjoyment. A beer that should define its style. Very good.

2013 edition, shared by puboflyons. Pours dark brown, damn near black, with a thin beige ring of a head. Nose is campfire and barbequed meat. Flavor is semi sweet with the malt base being more pronounced. Hints of cocoa, caramel and vanilla. Still smoky and meaty enough. Hints of my late father’s pipe. Body could have been more robust, only medium. Overall, quite good.

22 oz. bottle thanks to puboflyons, thanks Jeff! 2013 vintage. Dark murky brown with thin ring of head in a sample glass. Nose is light smoked malts and hints of chocolate.

Flavors of smoked malts, wood and some traces of roasted malt. Secondary hint of beef jerky and licorice. Mouth feel is kind of ashy, medium in body with a nice balance of smoke malt and sweet notes. Nice brew.
