Smoked Porter (Alaskan Brewing, Juneau, AK)

I've had a tough time finding this beer over the years, but now have a case of it!  Smoked Porter is an opaque, nearly brown black porter with a hint of ruby tint. Tightly bubbled light brown head that is an inch high singular shade that lingers nicely. Light smoke, chocolate and black licorice in the nose that is very subtle. Smoke pops into the mouth with burnt toast, along with a charcoal taste like the burnt edge of bbq. Chocolate, malt and a bit of hop tingle that backs up the smoke. Mouthfeel seems a little light, but an excellent beer overall that's a joy to drink.
