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.

2012 vintage. Poured black with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet rauched malt. Medium to slightly watery body, flavour is of the smoked malt with some restrained bitterness. Surprisingly smooth.

0,5l bottle, 2012 vintage. Pours black with medium sized tanned head. Smoke, chocolate, liquorice. Almost creamy. Not overtly sweet for my liking, just right. Very good.

22 ounce bottle, 2013 vintage. Kinda surprised to see the 2013s on the shelf in Ohio since this is Alaskans first year distributing here, but Im not complaining! Served in a Great Lakes Brewing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stayed around for a while. Theres also a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like smoked malt/meats, coffee, roasted malt and some dark fruit. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but theres also some chocolate and woodiness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its smooth and a bit creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Its also easy and enjoyable to drink. I thought this was a good overall brew. The smoke is definitely noticeable but not overpowering. Its a nice combination of smoky, sweet and roasty flavors, certainly worth picking this one up! $8.99 a bomber.

2013 Vintage tested pre, consumed during and celebrated post Whats Brewing 1516-2016. (bb "at least 2025") - Alderwood smoked replaces the Old World porkchop and Bamberg bacon with subtle, nearly breezy woodsmoke (as in smoked salmon), framing dry cocoa powder, lush pillowy dark malts (red berry, wet boughs) and great dryness in a unique smoked beer that is almost as sessionable as Schlenkerla itself. Layered (woody, coffeebean, cigar leaf) bitter aftertaste. - An unexpectedly suave and "mature" revelation and hard-to-deny New World classic that shines with balanced "terroir" flavours. Something both in the air and that glacier water? Looking forward to some verticals.

@bartlebiers 2016 Whats Brewing feat. Joe Stange. Aromas of smoked malt, roast, hints of milk chocolate with a very clean taste and a well-done balance of smoked and roasted malts. Lots of aroma for this quite low abv.

Pours a deep brown to black with a light brown head. Aromas of malt and smoke. Taste the same with a little sweetness from the malt. A nice smoked porter. Very complex ale. Light to medium mouth feel with little lacing in the glass.

Rocznik 2012. Piwo czarne z lwkkimi refleksami, biala piana znikajaca bardzo szybko w szkle. W aromacie dym i wedzonka z ogniska, ciemne owoce jak wisnie i troche kawy. W smaku popiol, lukrecja i sos sojowy. Dosc kwaskowe, niezbyt slodkie z palona goryczka i wysyceniem na srednio niskim poziomie. Na jezyku gadkie i kremowe ze srednim cialem. Zdecydowanie dla fanow wedzonek.

Originally rated on 12/4/08. Thankfully I finally found some of this, my bottle was brewed in 08. Aroma was a nice smokey presence not too strong, not too weak, good balance. Also there were hints of fruit and coffee. Predominant flavor of smoke with hints of chocolate and coffee, mouthfeel was a little on the thin side but not bad. I am not a big fan of smoked beers but, overall it was a pretty good porter thats worth a try.
