Alaskan Brewing Co. – Smoked Porter – 6 smokestacks (out of 7)

Alaskan Smoked Porter

Here’s a good one! Dark, but not too dark. Smell = Strong. Sausage = Present. Tastes a little watery which is great if you’re really thirsty. On the back of the throat its a little ashy. Could the ashy come from smoking it a little too long? Direct or indirect smoking?, that’s what I gotta get to the bottom of. Taste = Good. Notes of  a little earthy peat. Final score = 6 Smokestacks.
