Alaskan Smoked Porter

Yesterday I saw an episode of The Thirsty Travel on Fine Living Network where he visited some Alaskan breweries. One of the beers highlighted was the Alaskan Smoked Porter. That prompted me to finally pull out a bottle from the fridge and try it. The only smoked porter I've ever had is that made by Stone. I know they keep their smoky flavor in it pretty low, and I've heard Alaskan lets the smoke fly. I must say, the smokiness in this isn't overwhelming or anything but it does add a really nice dimension to the smooth dark malt used. 4.5/5

I first had the Alaskan Smoked Porter on tap at Stone. Really great stuff.
