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.

hopheaven (91) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Gentle but assertive smokiness, like a fire burning in the woods. Allows the malt to come through as well, chocolate and roasty. Has a light fruitiness. Smoke fades into bittersweet, not acrid, roasted not burnt, toffee, coffee, cherry, plums, and then returns to linger on your taste buds. Vinous quality peeks into the nose. Flavor a bit like old ale. Slick, yet dry.

Livendadream (148) - 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.

axl (114) - Lund, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
650ml bottle of 2012 vintage. Black with tall but fairly quickly disappearing beige-brown head leaving some lacing. Smoky, peaty aroma with some tar, liqorice and hints of coffee and chocolate in the background. Taste is dominated by smoke, peat and roasted malts and grains but also has some bitter coffee and chocolate and hints of tar. Very nice smoke character and a good porter, just a little too thin on the mouthfeel, maybe drinking fresher or aging longer would’ve fixed that though.

mario_giri (141) - SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2015
Endlich ein ausgewogenes Rauchbier, das nicht nach Schinken und Speck riecht. Angenehme Raucharomen, etwas Schokolade. Leicht Bitter im Antrunk, fruchtig nach Pflaumen, trockenfrüchten. Recht voll, kaum Säure, wenig Co2. Rauch ist immer präsent aber nie penetrant. Fein.

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 (214) - 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.
