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.

I received a 2012 and 2013 as a trade. I remember this beer from the mini GABF in Baltimore in 1998/9.

It is dark in color with a nice head. A great smokey charcoal taste. It is smooth with a bitter finish. It is one of the best smoked porters I have had. I compare all smoked porters to this one.
