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.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 4, 2006
2005 bomber. Appearance is black, opaque. No real co2 is noticeable. The head is tan with limited body that dissipates quickly. Aroma is at first smoky with bubblegum notes – sweet charcoal. The palate is lighter and more watery than expected with tartness noticeable toward the middle with a lingering metallic hop finish. Flavor is sweet and, smokey with a tinny hop finish. My expectations were high due the overwhelming response to this beer. I, however, was thoroughly disappointed and found it to be poorly balanced with no follow through. Perhaps my lack of exposure to the style has left me without enough experience to accurately critique this concoction.

$9 paid for a 2016 22floz bottle. Pours with one finger head receding to a patchy layer atop the dark-brown contents. Aroma carries a strong scent of campfire. Feel is great, and the Worcestershire sauce-like flavor is good. Yet, this beer is not as top notch as I once thought. My palate may have changed to desire a little less smoke. Still it is solid and good drinking beer.

A malty smell of chocolate, some smoke. The beige medium large creamy head has a short duration, the body is black. A smoky taste of dark chocolate and malt, the long finish is quite bitter. The body is medium strong, creamy and oily, also silky with a soft carbonation.
