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.

Bottle, 04. Opaque deep brown pour, tan head. Smokey malty aroma, reminds me of smoked gouda. Smoke aroma was not overwhelming. Roasty smokey flavors with a medium mouthfeel. Some hints of coffee. This is a real good beer.

2004 vintage, I believe. Sampled at the Corkscrew Sunday beer tasting. I thoroughly enjoyed the smokiness and was left wondering why more brewers dont adopt the style. While this is wonderfully smokey, it lacks the backbone to take this to the next level. I think an Alaskan Smoked Imperial Porter would do the trick. Flavor is smoked and roasted with some tobacco and earth richness. I sampled this with a piece of bacon-salt bread and found myself dipping bread into beer. Up the backbone on this beer and youve got me buying this by the case. As is, tasty, but needs more depth.

Heavy on the smoked aroma. Strong smoky taste. Tastes a little like beef jerky. Deep dark color. Hint of coffee and hops in the taste. Thanks to richlikebeer!

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Sample at GABF. Poured deep brown with garnet hints. Very clear but opaque. Small brown head. Smokey sweet malty aroma a bit brinish also. Not bad. Thats some smokey flavor! Particularly at the finish. Also toasted malt and very faint hop bitterness (no hop ID just bitterness). Light-medium body. Ive had many smoked items before (including several beers) and this is one of the only ones that does not seem forced or overdone. Very good.

Thanks rich for sharing this bottle. Aroma of a nice peaty smoke erupts from the glass. Pour was deep black. Flavor was smoky indeed with a tinge of coffee and hops to balance it nicely. I enjoyed this very much. It was reminiscent of walking through a smoked meat aisle at a farmers market.

lots of smoke in the aroma and flavor. more smoke than anything else in both the aroma and flavor. smoothness in the flavor is what sets this aside from anything other than Stone smoked porter. the smoke is dominant but not overwhelming, and the chocolate and coffee were solid in the background. a little hops in the end, but again, nothing that deters from the overall quality of the flavors. a very nice smoked, where if you use Stone as the standard, is a very close second.
