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.

Overall I would have to say this is a nice porter, however it was a little to smokey for my taste. The smokeiness dominated all other flavors.

Wow. Can you say SMOKED! This beer is so full of charded goodness. I dont know if I could drink more than one because the flavor is so over powering. Its a wonderful beer that I got at Obriens in San Diego.

Bottle from trade. Pours a dark,dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is very smokey and woodsy. Taste is of oak, earthy and slightly malty. Has a bit of a bitter chocolate finish to it.

2006 Bottle from trade with HogtownHarry shared with my good friend, Wieland. His first comment after sipping: "Wow, this is GOOD beer." Funny German kid, wanted me to add that he is "not a beer specialist, but rather a specialist of the ladies". Nose is toasted malts, smoky, but not the smokiest, salami, espresso, cacao. Flavor is very smoky at first with minor accents of chocolate and coffee in the finish. Nicely balanced and understandbly, a classic example of the style.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Previous rate was from 2007; this second one from Nov. 2010. My palate has changed alot. REally enjoyed it this time. NO new notes.From 3.1 to 3.8 First for this style. Poured a dark black. Big roasted, earthy aroma. Very smoky. Some malt and a little chocolate. Pretty good mouthfeel. Very strong smoke flavor. A little hops at the end. Since this is my first for the style, Ill probably rerate this at some point. Wasnt really great for me.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2009 500 ml bottle - 2003 vintage sampled in December 2008; thin, dark brown with trace off-white head; sweet, smoky aromas with nutty, meaty notes; body is quite thin and bone dry finish; lots of smoke remains with subtle flavors of chocolate, cookies and rich malt; I think I expected to be a little more blown away by this, but it was still really good and quite a treat to drink a nicely aged bottle

I really like this beer. Has a lot of "smoke" flavor - doesnt come through in the aroma. Very little head. Very dark. Fairly smooth.

22 oz bottle via Captial Market. Pours almost pitch black with a massive tan head. Nose is the smokiest i have ever experienced. Reminds of sitting in front of a camp fire roasting/burning marshmellows. Taste like it smells. Starts with some sweet burnt marshmellows, some malts, and even some smoked hops in the finish. I think there is a bit of coffe flavor in there aswell. It is all very smooth though, rounded and balanced. Light carbonation. Medium body. Very nice...
