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 2012 Pours black with a one finger khaki head. Nice smoked meat and winter campfire aromas. Taste follows the nose well. Smoked meat, roasted bitterness, and a touch of campfire. Medium to thin mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very nice beer, very robust and savory. -

PawelD (241) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Butelka 2013. W zapachu karmel, czekolada belgijska, espresso, nuty spodu od ciasta, wędzoność. Kolor niemal nieprzejrzysty czarny, z rubinowymi refleksami. Wysycenie średnie, piana gęsta beżowa, przyjemny lacing. W smaku świetnie zbalansowana współpraca wędzoności, rasowej czekolady i kawy połączona z karmelem i biszkoptem, piwo nie jest gęste, nie jest też wodniste, po prostu idealny balans który sprawia że jest ono ekstremalnie pijalne. Lekko kremowa faktura i słodkie espresso na długim finiszu tworzą genialną kombinację. Wzór do naśladowania.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
Sampled from a 0.65l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a bottle from 2012. In the glass this one has a deep and dark brown body that has a little sidesticking kinda dark beige top. Smells smoked alright. Beefy smoke with a little bit of both dry licorice and chocolate. Smells nice. Yeah, it’s also smoked in the taste. Like matches, burned matches, soft beef jerky and chocolate. Gliding light oily in the mouth and soft to average on the prickling carbonation level. Quite flavorful. Probably worth a revisit. 15.02.2014

The leader and original in the category. You have to like/appreciate smoked beers to dig this beer.

gad905 (166) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle at RichTheVillan’s tasting, 27/11/13. Clear dark brown, nice head leaves good lace. Rounded savoury smoke and sweet roast malt on the nose, touch of peat. Moderate sweet, chocolate, light coffee, dark toffee malt, medium hop bitterness, very dry finish, luscious smoky character. Very smooth, creamy, maybe a touch too spritzy but incredibly drinkable.

milo91hd (137) - Lecce, ITALY - NOV 29, 2014
Bottiglia 65 CL, colore nero con un cappello di schiuma color nocciola e poco persistente. Al naso č molto semplice ma pulita, affumicato e in secondo piano note maltate, caffč e cioccolato. Al palato risulta molto simile con un aggiunta di liquirizia nel finale. Corpo medio, poco carbonata. Davvero buona

Sampled from a bottle, this beer had a dark brown-black pour and gave a tan, chocolate shake one to two finger head of bubbles that receded to a cover and ring, it left nice spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, it had aromas of a wood fire smoke, toasted malt and some roasted malt, coffee, a touch of oily smoke, some malt and brown sugar sweetness in the background, the flavor was wood fire and oily smoke, toasted malt and a little roasted malt, black coffee, faint caramel and chocolate, there was a little malt and/or hop bitterness after the finish, the mouth feel was light medium and creamy on the lips, and it had average carbonation, a very smokey porter, smoke was out front on the nose and flavor, a nice blend of a smoke drink.
