Availability: Winter

Notes/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 on November 1 and unlike most beers, may be aged in the bottle much like fine wine.

Alaskan Smoked Porter 2008 Edition.

Rich dark brown body, with a thick large mocha head.

Excellent smoke in the aroma. Thick deep intoxicating layers of smokiness, underlays of chocolate, and hefty backing of roasted malt. Aroma is absolutely huge, and perfect for the style.

Hefty amounts of roasted malts attack the palate immediately. Followed closely by some insanely deep highly complex smoky notes. The roasted notes, and the smoke, blend perfectly creating a flavor tone that is just absolutely amazing.

This is perfection, this beer nails the head on everything. Insanely complex and with no apparent faults, this one easily deserves a 5.
Best Smoked Porter in the world.

This stuff is fantastic. I took on a bottle of the 2004 vintage on July 1, 2005. This is a void in deep space black. Not too bubbly, which really enhanced the mouthfeel and drinkability. Wonderful smokey taste, touch of bitterness, just overall fantastic beer. This went really, REALLY well with BBQ hamburgers. The smoked porter is now a regular for the cookout season. Give it a try.
