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.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAR 26, 2006
2004 bottle acquired while in Seattle. Appearance is black with a dark tan head. Aroma is smoke, similar to smoked bacon or other meat. Taste is similar to the aroma with the added benefit of typical porter tastes. Strong malt presence and smooth considering the heavy smoke taste. Very well balanced, and while the smoke flavor is definitely predominant it is balanced within the beer. I was very pleased with this beer and would like to see more breweries try it, since I cant obtain this beer often.

jandorris (647) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Wersja 2013. W zapachu czekolada, palone słody, nuty drewniane, karmel, wędzonka jest w moim odczuciu bardzo delikatna. W smaku sporo karmelu, palone słody, wędzona papryka. Oglnie całkiem przyzwoite piwo, ale niewiele poza tym.
