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.

2012 bomber poured into an English pint glass. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with a lot of smokiness and some earthiness. Flavor is dark chocolate with some roasted coffee notes and a lot of smokiness. Lighter bodied than I would have expected, but has a nice smokey mouthfeel. Overall a very enjoyable smoked porter.

@bartlebier’s 2016 What’s Brewing feat. Joe Stange. Aromas of smoked malt, roast, hints of milk chocolate with a very clean taste and a well-done balance of smoked and roasted malts. Lots of aroma for this quite low abv.

Pours a deep brown to black with a light brown head. Aromas of malt and smoke. Taste the same with a little sweetness from the malt. A nice smoked porter. Very complex ale. Light to medium mouth feel with little lacing in the glass.

Rocznik 2012. Piwo czarne z lwkkimi refleksami, biala piana znikajaca bardzo szybko w szkle. W aromacie dym i wedzonka z ogniska, ciemne owoce jak wisnie i troche kawy. W smaku popiol, lukrecja i sos sojowy. Dosc kwaskowe, niezbyt slodkie z palona goryczka i wysyceniem na srednio niskim poziomie. Na jezyku gadkie i kremowe ze srednim cialem. Zdecydowanie dla fanow wedzonek.

Originally rated on 12/4/08. Thankfully I finally found some of this, my bottle was brewed in 08. Aroma was a nice smokey presence not too strong, not too weak, good balance. Also there were hints of fruit and coffee. Predominant flavor of smoke with hints of chocolate and coffee, mouthfeel was a little on the thin side but not bad. I am not a big fan of smoked beers but, overall it was a pretty good porter thats worth a try.

Echon (388) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2016
(2008 vintage). Black. Mostly roasted but also somewhat smoked aroma and flavour. Not that rich. Moderately sweet and bitter taste. Medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Overall, a good porter but nothing outstanding. It could easily be more smoked and full.

samires (113) - POLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Black with small white head. Medium malty sweetness with hints of caramel, loads of coffee, chocolate and some faint roastiness complimented by solid dose of smoky notes reminiscing campfire. Avarage bitterness and medium body, slick texture, medium carbonation. Complex yet drinkable, you can dive into smoke and find chocolaty and coffee with roastiness and caramel sweet backbone.

ALIBALI (790) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2016 Elche, Hirsche ich werd wahnsinnig, denn kurz voher erschnupperte ich die Dämpfe des verbrannten Leders zum ersten Mal. Im Mund formen sich dann ausgefallene Rauch, Röst und fruchtig süße Flavours zu einem Ganzen zusammen. Die anfänglich dominante Säure wird schnell von der Hopfenbittere abgefedert und das alles im gekonnt von röstmalzigen Rauchungen flankierten Korpus. Rund und extrem gut drinkable. 0,66l Bottle von BEYOND BEER IN HH. 12€.
