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.

This beer is the best of the best. Pours like heaven smells like a campsite. Tastes reminiscent of good smoked meats mixed with an excellent Porter worth every penny.

dnicolaescu (1152) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 27, 2015
BOTTLE 65CL from Bov. 2013 vintage. Almost black, with clear red highlights and a small mocha head. It starts rather smoky with notes of smoked bacon Bamberg style, and even some smoked fish. After the smoke calms down, you get some simple chocolate topping. The taste is low to moderate black malt sweetness, the smoke leaves a spicy note, low to moderate spicy bitterness and some ashes in the finish. So, apart from the savoury smokiness, this is a good, Smooth, but simple porter.

Sparf (161) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2015
Vintage 2012. En välavvägd doft som domineras av rök, kött och kol. Här finns även en tydlig och tämligen söt maltarom. Hade nog förväntat mig mer komplexitet dock. Brygden är helt svart och har ett snyggt, tätt skum med lång varaktighet. Smaken är centrerad kring ett beskt kaffeartat nav med strålar ut mot karamellmalt, lakrits och torkad frukt – allt ackompanjerat av en trevligt avrundad rök. Den direkta eftersmaken är förvånansvärt kort men det ligger kvar en svag, rökigt besk efterklang därefter. Kroppen är förvisso fyllig men ger inget rikt intryck. Snarare kan fylligheten tillskrivas ett gott hantverk än en uppumpad trendighet.

Draft. Tight lace. Aroma of smoky ham and cereal grains, maybe oats. Flavors of mocha, chewy something, with a bit of chalk and a faint hint of dried fruit. For most of the time the beer is on the palate it vacillates between sweet and smoky, back and forth. Tremendous.

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Darkest brown, almost black. Rocky light-brown head. Intense aromas of smoked ham, coffee, iodine, seaweed, squid ink (it’s a very marine porter). Taste is salty, savoury and bitter. Soft and creamy. Long finish.

Bosskie (530) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Pitch black beer with a generous foamy dark head and lots of bubbles. Smell is lots of smoke and bbq meat, some leather, subtle hints of hop, bit of sharp lemon. Bit of roasted nuts. Salty, with some creamy chocolate. Taste is creamy oily watery bitterness, beautifully balanced. Smoke and meat are a little bit less present with a bit more chocolate and some coffee. Nice fizz, touch of ash, resin. Full mouthfeel and full finish with a light astringence.

Cantabrian (919) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 5, 2015
Between a porter and a smoked beer, I can find better specimens, which are not as herbal as this one. Interesting, but the heavy herbal tones on the flavour put me off.

Livendadream (149) - New Mexico, USA - APR 24, 2015
2013 Btl pours deep dark opaque brown color, huge fluffy tan head that disappears quickly leaving no lace. Aromas of, burnt wood,charcoal, earth and the inside of a meat smoker. Tastes of campfire smoke,dark chocolate,sweet caramel and earth. Medium body, creamy, soft mouthfeel, a tad under carbonated , and a finish that puts a twang on the tip of your tongue. The smoke stays in your mouth long after the beer is gone! This is my first smoked beer. I felt the intense smokiness was a little overwhelming. I thought a year of aging would mellow the flavors out a bit but they still were pretty bold. It was good but not great.
