A potential future contributor to the blog stopped by the office the other day and noted he had an oustanding beer… That beer just so happens to be one that I have been waiting to get on the blog and so here you are… Alaskan Smoked Porter.
We talked about how truly good this brew is and it comes down to a few things for me… it is smokey, as advertised, but not like quite as strong as Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier – Märzen and not quite as light as Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier. Alaskan has it it right in the middle with a beer that offers silky smooth smokiness throughout the tasting session without ever being overpowering or controlling. From nose to body to finish, this beer’s bitter-smooth smoke character pleases to the last drop… god that sounds like a marketing line, doesn’t it. 🙂
