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.

Fatehunter (1478) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2012
2009 Bottle Poured into a snifter. Dark brown with a tan quarter inch head. Wood burning smoke, toasted malt. Solid "smoked" beer smell with no extras. Burnt wood, roasted malt, cocoa, bitterness at the rounds it out well. Soft texture, medium body, moderate carbonation but not distracting. Superb drink for any occasion... such as waking up in the morning. Really, an excellent beer with nothing bad to say about it.

Calisky (1343) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2015
Couleur noire, légère mousse brune. Fort nez de chocolat, malté un peu fumé et notes douces. Gout malté, chocolat avec note fumées et amères (café) et notes de fruits secs et tourbe en fin de bouche, voir caramel et réglisse. Corps onctueux. Pas mal

Zlotta (187) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2015
0,651 l bottle from P&M Getränke, 2008 vintage. Clear, very dark red to black with a thin, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Heavy and dominating aroma of dark chocolate, accompanied by more subtle hints of smoke, raisins, sherry and coffee. Sweetish taste of dark chocolate, followed by sherry and a subtle smokiness along with a gentle sourish note. Rather long, slightly bitter finish with lots of smoke and dark chocolate. Very nice to see the different flavours emerging one after another. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, absolutely flat. Really good vintage beer. It has all the complexity you would expect from it as the different flavours are not just overpowered by the smoke. The body has not thinned out that much so that this beer is a very nice sipper. However, it lacks a bit of excitement preventing it from getting top scores.

3/14/15 from bomber dated 10/06/14. Nice chocolately head and color. Malty smokey flavor without much bitterrness. Very good. Kind of a leathery woody aroma and taste. One of the best porters I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty much best smoked porter that is readily available. Smell like an Alaskan salmon smoker, with great olfactory senses. Great porter mouthfeel with perfect co2. Nice roasts finish and dry. Oh so drinkable.

McWorta (801) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 3, 2015
[Bottle from 2013] Olive black colour, light tan ginger pillowy head. Smokey bacon, leather, fresh cut peat, subtle dried fruit & tobacco notes, light earthy with hints of black olives and roast malt notes. Light sweet-bitter harmonic with a notch of acidity and a certain complexity reminicent of leather, olives, roast malts and even liquorice. Medium-full body, bit slick texture, softly carbonated with a long lasting finish.

fellebag (1039) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle 65cl. Light brown head diminishing. Dark brown color. Aroma is chocolate malt, a lot of smoke and a great package of leather. Hint of berries. Taste is sweet, dry and strong. The leather is by all very present here.

grew (89) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 23, 2015
2012 edition. Looks nicely: black with good head. Aroma: surprisingly very low smoke (probably because of 3 years of aging), well-distinguished: dark chocolate, coffee and cherry notes. Carbonation is too high. Smoke is in after-taste. Very good, well-arranged beer. Very similar to aged baltic porters.
