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.

Gachupines (1247) - USA - MAR 26, 2006
2004 bottle acquired while in Seattle. Appearance is black with a dark tan head. Aroma is smoke, similar to smoked bacon or other meat. Taste is similar to the aroma with the added benefit of typical porter tastes. Strong malt presence and smooth considering the heavy smoke taste. Very well balanced, and while the smoke flavor is definitely predominant it is balanced within the beer. I was very pleased with this beer and would like to see more breweries try it, since I can’t obtain this beer often.

Pullo @ Alko. Reittaus nro 900. Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana, noin kahden sormen paksuisen tiiviin vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksusta löytyy savuisuutta, joka kääntyy hieman viskimäisen turpeiseen suuntaan, tervaa, paahdetta ja hivenen myös tummaa hedelmää ja suklaisuutta. Maussa suklaisuus ja lievä paahde ottavat isointa roolia alkuun, niiden jälkeen tulee savuinen turpeisuus, aivan kuin monissa skottiviskeissä, ilman alkoholin poltetta. Hiven tummaa hedelmää on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen (varsinkin prosentteihin nähden) ja maitoinen. Hyvin tehty svauolut, jossa on sellaista skottiviskin turpeisuutta eikä savukinkkua, kuten savuoluissa yleensä. Täyteläinenkin tämä on, varsinkin prosentteihin nähden. Hieno kokemus, savuoluiden parhaimmistoa ehdottomasti, ja oluenakin hyvä, vaikken tyylistä niin välitäkään.

I love the smell. Subtle hints of smoked meat, with some "woody" elements in there as well. Apperence is pretty dull, black with minimal head. A slight bitter taste, with balanced smoke aromas. Hints of bacon or other smoked meat. Medium body, low carbonation. I love this one, very well balanced smoked porter.

jerohen (2167) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2016
Bottled from BierNavigatie, 2012 vintage tasted in 2016. Dark brown to black colored, creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, licorice, perhaps some coffee and chocolate. Malty bitter flavor, smoky. For a Porter this beer leans a bit towards Schwarz and Rauchbier. I’m not sure what the aging has done to the beer, that’s something to investigate another time. Nice beer, although i’m not as big as a fan as many others.
