Bottle:   Black, deep cola highlights, large frothy tannish head, decent lacing.   Huge smokey nose, some smoked meat, but mainly charred wood, campfire, and plain ole smoke.   Perhaps a slight aspect of roasted, or burnt malts.   Moderately burnt malts on the tongue, light sweetness, a little meaty (yeah, like smoked meat), with some charred wood, campfire, and ash bringing up the backside.   Yeah, this one is smoked!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes smokey, dark chocolate, ash, campfire, charred wood, and sweet smoked meat.   Not as robust as say Alaskan Smoked Porter, but its a good start.   Smokey without being overly burnt.   Good, just wished it had a little bit more body, or was more chewy.   Hopefully overtime this one develops into another great Alaska born smoked beer.   Definitely worth a try!

Bomber. Pours inky black with a long-sustaining tan head; leaves some drippy lace. Aroma consists of smoked meats, tobacco, bread, anise, chocolate. Taste is sweet and smoky, finishing bitter. Smoke isn’t extreme, just noticeable. Carbonation fairly soft, body full. Really tasty and a huge improvement over the last two smoked beers I’ve had recently.

22. Well, it’s no ASP, but it’s a pretty badass smoked black beer in its own right. Pours buh-lack with a dense and creamy burnt tan head. Lots of stringy sedimentary rings of lace. Big smoky campfire nose, salty, showing beef jerky. Pretty intensely dark. Some soy sauce. Creamy thick body with decent carb. Salty beef jerky and campfire mid palate. Long smoky worcestershire finish. Digging this. Worth another bottle.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Leather smoke darker chocolate and roast. Black pour tan head. Flavors of salted meaty smoked jerky leather some dark chocolate roasted malts. Lingering smokey finish. Body is maybe a tad thin. Interesting beer.

Black, tan head. Aroma: biscuity malt with obvious smoke, baker's chocolate. Flavor of dry baker's chocolate, biscuit and toast, pronounced smoke. Full bodied and warming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle: Poured a thick black oil with tan light brown head. Aroma is smoke and malts. Taste is a smoke burnt forward but subsides to bring in a roasted maltiness.

Clear black color/ tan head. Smoked meat, alderwood, dark roasted malt aromas. Rich, hearty flavors of smoked almonds, campfire char, black roasted malts, with a milk chocolate sweetness. very good.
