What the brewer says

“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.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “In­tense smoked malt up front but not over­pow­er­ing. There’s some choco­late and toast be­hind that and roasted malt in the back­ground.” Fla­vor: “Smoke up front with more choco­late and roast com­ing through in the fla­vor. Mod­er­ate sweet­ness and bit­ter­ness. Smoke char­ac­ter is clean and dances on top of the dark roast malt char­ac­ter.” Over­all: “If you like dark beers that are on the more ag­gres­sive side, this is a re­ally nice beer. There’s not re­ally any malt sweet­ness to speak of, but it has a rich com­plex­ity of roast, dark choco­late, hops bit­ter­ness, and smoke with­out be­ing over-the-top and harsh.”
