Looks good
Smells like a good balance of smoke and chocolate
Tastes great. My palate is playing tricks on me. Skipping from chocolate to smoke and back and forth and back and forth.
Great mouthfeel.Very easy going down but rich on the tongue. Good stuff.
Overall I really like this. Been craving some smoke and this is doing the job. Surly hits another one out of the park for me.

a- Thick, tan head persists well. Black color.

s - Smoke and dark fruit. Malty sweetness. Really nice aroma that starts by overpowering smoke but moves to the Baltic porter character.

t - Taste is similar to smell...on first sip I thought it was WAY too smoke forward. But each sip after seemed more and more balanced. The smoke perfectly compliments the dark fruit, roast, and malt.

m - The highlight of the beer. It's rich and velvety.

o - This is a darn good Raucbier! It really hides the 8% alcohol, which could be dangerous in a bomber. I'm glad I gave it a chance beyond the first sip...each sip has been better than the last!
