Alaskan Brewing Co. 2013 Smoked Porter

Cellar Selection

A perennial classic, Alaskan Brewing's vintage-dated Smoked Porter continues to impress. The 2013 bottling seems to have even more depth and power than usual, with intense aromas of char and campfire upfront, supported by notes of chocolate, cigar box, roasted malt and a hint of dark fruit. It's a deep, dark brown color—almost black—with a fluffy tan head that lingers. The palate is smooth, full and creamy, with lush flavors that mimic the bouquet alongside accents of hickory-cured bacon, roasted coffee and s'mores. A sweet-smoke sensation lingers on the long finish; with this concentration, power and balance, this is a selection that's sure to evolve and age well for years to come. Lauren Buzzeo
