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.

Alaskan Smoked Porter. Pours out a black color with about a half inch light brown head with a creamy consistency. It has a very smoky aroma basically having the woody smoke source right under you. The flavor is very smoky as well and slightly fishy. It also has the bitter bite from the hops. Overall it has a huge flavor not to be underestimated. The light mouthfeel makes the porter seem almost creamy and the medium body carries the flavors and aroma very well.

rich and intensely flavored" is right...for better or worse. Most people love or hate this beer. the smokiness is anything but subtle. A good dose in the nose. While in the mouth, the big full bodied porter qualities get to come out and play, but the finish is almost all smoke...and is there a hint of fishiness in that finish? recommended. definitely unique. stones is a touch thinner, but easier to drink. i like this beer (my wife hates it) but i don’t think i’d want to polish off a 22 by myself."

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Safeway, Heaton, Newcastle (now closed). 2012 Vintage aged for 2 years before drinking. This inky black beer pours with a thin tan head. It has a slight sour red fruity flavour, liquorice and salty brine notes followed by a gentle smoked finish. Superb!

2012 vintage bottle from the Trembling Madness in York. Pours black with a thin tan head. Starts rich and meaty with a fair amount of spiciness. Peaty smoke on the finish. Very good quite intense beer there are chocolate notes and a little coffee too. Slight band aid finish.

Had a bunch of times and it does differ, vintage to vintage. But it is always really good. Never a distracting problem always great smoke aroma and roasty charcter, and always perfect head and carbonation. A++++ brew

Sarlacc83 (812) - Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2014
On tap at Apex. 2012 vintage. A: Deep black, cappuccino head, good lacing. N: Band-aids, campfire ashes, some cocoa, bacon fat, and a hint of lactose. T: Big smoke, good sweetness. M: Medium-heavy body. A touch creamy. O: After the Baltique, this one is appreciably less rich. The smoke elements are still there, but it does fall short in comparison. At the same time, this is a venerable beer and it’s still worth your time, especially aged.
