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.

Thought I had rated this, but will try from memory. 2005 bottle: Pours black but cant remember the head. I remember a definite smoky aroma and flavor. It was just the perfect amount. If nothing else, I remember the smokey aroma and flavor. Good thing I have another one!

A very good example of a smoked porter. The smoke was not overwhelming, but very present. There was no noticeable heat, and a slight choclate taste. I would like to try this aged.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Pours a dense, oily opaque black with a generous, looming tan head that fades quickly. Aromas of heady smoked malts, licorice, plum, mild hops, tar, molasses and fleshy fruit, almost like baked coconut. flavor leads with smoke and hops, quickly trounced by the malt, an onslaught of flavor and intensity that is both unexpected and expertly laid out before me. Palate was wonderfully creamy and roasty at the same time. This beer crushed my previous favorite smoked porter, from Stone. More smoke, more everything. Finishes wild and intriguing, smoke dancing across my tongue until, at last, hops leaves a dry and slightly bitter finish. Killer porter.

Courtesy boboski. 2005 bottle. Poured a very dark brown/black color with not much head to speak of. A moderate smoked aroma is apparent that is complimented by a mild roast aroma. The smoke aroma and flavor isnt aggressive and has a slightly musky quality. The palate is smooth, a bit thinner than I expected. The flavor has a balance between smoke, roasted malt, and hops that make the beer better than the sum of its parts.

Vintage 2006 - Dark red brown body with a brown head. Meat, roasted game and light smoke in the aroma. Flavour is smokey and roasty with a side bacon grill flavour. Full bodied throughout with a slight sweetness to the finish.

2006 Bomber; Nose of Smoke!, Kind of like smoked jerky; and some light chocolate; dark but clear brown with a small ivory head; flavor is dominated by smoke with some very light coffee and chocolate accents.

Toasted malt with chocolate for aroma. Overlaid by a strongish smoke - like smoked ham without the ham. Dark brown color with reddish hilites; vigorous tan head. Starts with smoked malt, followed by coffee and maybe some chocolate, and finishing with smoke. Substantial mouthfeel. Not many like this.

22 oz bottle, 2004 vintage, via acertain. Dark brown pour that lets a little light pass through on the edges. One finger fizzy dark brown head settles to a thin covering. Aroma is just wonderful. Nice woody smoked malt over a chocolate and roasted malt base. Hints of smoked meats, coffee, and roasted peanuts. Flavor has a great balance of smoke and roast up front with a little coffee and dark chocolate coming on in the finish, then another wash of smoke. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than Id like, but taking into account that this is a Porter, its probably about right. Moderately active carbonation, but its pretty soft. Nice lingering fairly dry finish. A pretty damn nice beer. A hybrid of my two favorite styles, and its done well! Im in heaven.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Bottle. Poured very dark brown with a brown head and big chunks of lacing. Very powerful nose of burnt malts with some carmel and hops. Very rich mouthfeel. Flavor is chocolate, malts, hops, and even some fruit. Finish is long, lingering, and dry. This is one of the better smoked porters I have tried.
