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.

NewCastle1 (59) - Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle. Large tan head. A very intense smoke aroma. Smells just like a fireplace to me. Hard to smell alot more then that. Very smooth to drink. Again the smoke aroma and flavor is pretty intense. Small notes of coffee, chocolate and malts. With all of the smoke in the aroma and taste. It almost seems burnt to me. Pretty good but not one I will seek out again.

Pretty good but I expected more. Definitely very smokey and ashy, and sweet. Just a little thinner palate than I expected and slightly metallic taste. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Halfling_4132 (70) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Appearance- solid cola black in colour with thick sandy brown foam. Aromas- Roasted aroma, salty smoked salmon with an underlying sweet vanilla. Palate- silky smooth, full bodied but light on the tongue. Taste- smokey roasted nuts, salmon, dark chocolate, overall- a complex and great tasting beer, really glad I tried and would happily drink again- had this for an end of 2nd year (uni) treat and it’s been worth the wait.

lokis333 (307) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAY 21, 2016
Almost jet black color (torch bearly shines through) with nice thick brown foam. Aromas of smoked salmon, smoked carp, pepers and spices used in meat and fish? With notes of smooth dark malts, roasted nuts, dry sweet seaweed and light notes of wood, campfire smoke and charcoal. Palate, full body, creamy smooth texture leaving nice smoked dark malts and woody finish. Taste, smooth sweet of wood smoke, creamy dark malts, then develops into more salty dry wood taste. Overall, really nice, never smelled a beer like this, loved it! Was expencive but really worth it, would have it again and do recomend!

Alebarasi (4) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - APR 4, 2016 does not count
Dark-brown, tar like color with a beige head. Interesting smell of smoked salmon and roast. Light, easy-to-drink beer with a intense smokey & coffee-chocolate aroma and a stout note. Interesting beer indeed, would try it again, but its price is quite high :D
