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.

Aroma of smoked cherry wood. Not that complex but a nice flavour. Good carbonation. Soft and silky. Taste is quite smoky. In the background I find some chocolate. Not that complex.

2008 model @ DØE Århus South Smokebber tasting: 6 years old Fine beer, I was hoping a little more smoke, because after 5 years should be in the foreground according to the brewery.

Alengrin (160) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2014
The archetypical smoked porter and probably the best known beer in the state of Alaska, this classic shows a mousse-like, yellowish white head on an opaque chestnut brown colour, bordering on black, but still transparent. Strongly smoked aroma of charcoal, bacon and smoked herring, accompanied by lots of other malty notes (dark chocolate, coffee) and impressions of dried plums, sage, tobacco, liquorice and soy sauce; taste profile is concentrated around a mouth-filling toasted bitterness (coffee), caramelly malts, dried fruit and a retronasal smokiness that contrasts nicely with the toasted bitter, making this an exciting experience; finishes utterly dry, with the typical rich and pine-like hop bitterness of many American micro brews, also a slight candi stickiness, long and complex. Thanks to the bottle slowly maturing in a darkened corner of my cellar, I’ll be able to re-rate this as an aged beer, as it is said to have ample ageing potential.

Marduk (2582) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2014
660ml bottle (2013). Pitch black color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, malty, raisins, faint smoke in aroma. Smoked, bit of milky, faint rubber and bit ashy taste. Long lasting roast in aftertaste. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Nice one!

Dark brown, clear, tan head. Biscuit, cocoa, fairly pronounced but pleasant smoke, Flavor: bready malt, biscuit, baker’s chocolate, smokey and grainy malt, finishes fairly dry. Well made. Smokiness is pronounced in this year-old bottle, but its not over the top, and works well with underlying malt character.

Bouteille (2012). Saveur Bière. Belle robe noire, mousse beige gourmande. Nez bien malté aux senteurs cendrées et fumées . Bouche complexe et crémeuse. Attaque douce puis puissante sur le malt torréfié et fumé soulignée par de petite notes de café. L'amertume très agréable lui confère une belle longueur en bouche . Finale sèche toujours imprégnée par ce délicat goût fumé. Une merveille de finesse et de gourmandise! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mgajdaczewa (449) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 22, 2014
W aromacie wyraźna wędzonka, nuty ciemnych słodów. W smaku dość wytrawne, wędzoność jest, ale subtelna, gorzka czekolada, kawa, paloność. Trochę jak stout, a nie porter. Trochę za mocno nagazowane. Fajne, choć mogłoby być fajniejsze.

650 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with two fingers of brown, good lasting head. Aroma is smoke, bonfire, ham, chocolate, grain coffee and plum. Nice roastiness with medium bitterness creates good finish. Low carbonation. Nice, velvety mouthfeel. Medium body. Low alcohol note with pleasant warming. Balanced, very good beer.
