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.

Dark brown and opaque appearance with a creamy tan head. Bam! Smokey, woodsy smell right up front. With the first sip, there’s a TON of smoked smokiness, bordering on burnt but never quite getting there. There’s also a hint of hops bitterness, but balance isn’t the goal here for this porter. Pretty light mouthfeel, especially for the big flavor. If you’re looking for a smokey porter, you won’t be disappointed by this one. I’ll probably pass on another as porters are out of my preferred wheelhouse, but there’s no denying this one has big smokey taste.

2012 vintage. Pours clear dark brown with minimal brown head. Aroma is heavy yet balanced roasted malts, dark chocolate, nuts. Heavy hops, spruce, lemon, orange. Leather, dough, sweat. Notes of tar, smoke, red berries, tobacco. Moderate sweet, bitter and acidic. Long sharp and metallic aftertaste. Body is medium, palate is watery to oily, carbonation is medium. Excellent but lacks some body.

Edycja 2013. Kolor: Ciemno brunatny. Piwo jest idealnie klarowne. Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, mało trwała, pozostawia niezły lacing. Aromat: Średnio intensywna wędzonka (nie kojarzy się z szynką, raczej w typie dymu z ogniska), rodzynki, trufle z nadzieniem rumowym, czekolada, wędzona śliwka, kawa - aromat jest świetny i bardzo złożony. Smak: Goryczka niska do średniej, nieco zalegająca, pełnia średnia, piwo jest półwytrawne. Wędzonka (bardziej intensywna niż w aromacie), kawa, rodzynki, rum, czekolada schodzi tu na dalszy plan. Bardzo dobre piwo. Wysycenie: Niskie do średniego - Ok. Opakowanie: Charakterystyczna etykieta. Brak konkretnych informacji poza ABV. Poczytałbym to za wadę, gdyby nie to, że piwo jest marką samą w sobie i jest wśród beergeeków bardzo rozpoznawalne. Uwagi: Świetne piwo, ale bardzo degustacyjne. Spotkałem się z opinią, że jest bardzo pijalne i jej nie podzielam. Tym niemniej w kategorii porter wędzony trafia na drugie miejsce w moim osobistym rankingu zaraz po Ondzie z Bevoga

freretoc (1213) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 8, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 66cl à la brasserie. (Ouverte depuis 24h à renoter) Vintage 2008 Couleur noire, peu de mousse et pas d’effervescence. Nez sur le café. Attaque sur le café, le chocolat et le mocca, petite pointe fumée en fin de bouche avec de la tourbe qui prend la bouche. Très bonne malgré le fait qu’elle soit éventée.

Renobob (1263) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 4, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Malheureusement ouverte depuis la veille donc plus de CO2 du tout. Couleur pétrole, nez café poivré. Très belle complexité au palais, quasi liquoreuse, malt grillé, café, grande longueur en bouche. A regoûter mais très plaisante.
