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.

22oz bottle. Pours black dark with thin light-brown head which dissipated quickly. Aroma - ok, this is definitely smoky. Wow! There is some sweet malt in the aroma, but the smoke is very prominent. Flavor is smoky, smoky and also malt. After awhile, I got used to the smokiness and was able to appreciate this as a porter. It definitely has the malty taste I like, but the smoke comes through so much in the nose that I had to just accept it and let it accentuate the malt to get its overall effect. Mouthfeel is medium with a little bitter aftertaste. Definitely much better than the last smoked brew I tried.

For a gimmick beer, it works. Dark rich chocolate dark malty goodness poured with a thick brown head that receded some nice lacing. Flavor is smoke and chocolate - not very hoppy but thats not what its shooting for.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, light brown head that dissipated fairly quickly. This beer reminds me of a smoky, less creamy version of Guinness. Smokey coffee flavor with hints of dark chocolate and a bitter finish. Was reluctant to try a "smoky" beer but its better than I thought it would be.

BelgianBeerGal (4014) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2007
2005 bottle poured into dimpled mug. Opaque brown, almost oily pour. Thin tan head with medium lacing. More smoked than porter. Aroma wood smoke and coffee bits. Flavour dominated by slick smoke but balanced with roasted malt and chocolate. Very interesting beer, full of character.

22oz bottle from 2006. Wow! Pours a deep chocolate brown, almost black. Head was light to medium brown with some great lacing. Aroma was BIG on smoke, coffee and roasted malts. I think I might marinate some steaks with the next bottle........lol

malrubius (2794) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2010 2005 22 ounce bottle in pint glass. Bown-black with brown head and lace. Smoke and chocolate aroma. Flavors of smoke, chocolate, roasted coffee and mild fruitiness with medium bitter finish. Medium-full body and medium-low carbo. A great porter without the smoke. An absolute marvel as it is.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2007
bottle.....poured brownish-back with a thin off-white head.....aroma of smoked meat, chocolate malt, and coffee grinds.....tastes much of the same with smoke playing a big role but well balanced with the more porter like aspects. the sweetness plays out a little more in this compared to the calumet. theres also a little roasted bitterness in the finish.
