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.

Had this beer at my last tasting. This beer pours a nice dark brown to almost black color with a thin tan head. The smell is smoke up front followed by a nice roasted malt character. The flavor is very similar but the smoke is nowhere near as prominent as in other smoked porters I have had (this is a good thing) the smokiness is followed by a little bit of roast. The mouthfeel is fairly dry and moderate carbonation. Overall a good beer and I would love to make me some chili with this beer.

2008 vintage

Deuane surprises me again.

A - Pours a deep, dark brown body with some ruby highlights towards the bottom...one finger of foamy, light brown head forms...it shows spotty retention and leaves some light lacing

S - There is a lot of smoke and charcoal for being three years old...more roast and dark fruits also linger

T - Amongst all the roast and charcoal there is a semi-sweetness to the beer...it's light and lingers in the background throughout...dark roasted malts and BBQ charcoal are the stars...there is some dark chocolate that sneaks towards the end

M - Full bodied...rich, lots of smoke and charcoal, dark chocolate

O - I was impressed with how well this Smoked Porter held up...I know this is one of the better smoked porters out there, but for three years this one still had a lot going on...I wouldn't mind trying a fresh bottle

A- dark brown with a creamy mocha colored head that last for a long time.

S- smells of smoke right away, reminds me of a BBQ. Maybe some chocolate, coffee notes in the background.

T- roasted, smoke flavors hit you first and both linger in your mouth. Good bitterness to round out the flavor, keeps it well balanced.

M- full bodied, high carbonation.

O- solid beer that is worth trying out each year when it comes out. Not my cup of tea for everyday, but its a good beer. I'm going to have to try and find a couple more smoked porters now.

A: Great dark brown color with a small amount of tan head and a decent lacing.

S: Hint of dark chocolate. The biggest smell I get is a roasty, smoky smell. It reminds me of barbeque ribs. Hope it tastes as good as it smells!

T: Great taste to it. Initially has a roasty flavor full of body and BBQ type malts. The finish feels like you are breathing out air from a smoker. Very unique taste and simple flavors that work very well together.

M: Moderate thick mouthfeel.

O: Overall, I am a fan of this beer. I enjoy the uniqueness of the beer and I think Alaskan Brewing Co brewed an excellent porter.
