Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 10-18-2001

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.

It's got a level of smoke that I'm looking for but the porter is a bit lacking compared to the likes of Founders or Edmund Fitzgerald.

Red/brown colour. Smell: smoke, chocolate, bit of dryed dark fruits. Taste: same, with a touch of citrus. Guess the acidity is a result of aging (from 2012). Classic, indeed. Very recommendable.

Served in a tulip glass. 2014 series.

Pours a dark brown almost black with a half inch of coffee colored head that leaves some lacing and a ring around the edges with tiny bubbles rising to the top. Aromas of campfire smoke, earthy hops, and dark chocolate. Taste is intense campfire smoked malts leading to an earthy hop bitterness. As it warms it almost gets a touch sweeter with more of the rich chocolate qualities coming through to balance the smoke. Mouthfeel is creamy, smoky, heavy body, mild carbonation.

Yum! A mixture of smoky, creamy, chocolatey delicious goodness. Balances out more as it warms. This is what smoked beers are all about.

Simply amazing. Smokiness is there but not overpowering and doesn't have that enormous alcohol taste of most beers you age

2012 bottle. Liquid bacon. Some smoke, but balanced out well with the sweet malt backbone. Pretty good.

Tasted like a burnt hotdog, smoked taste was off putting.
