malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark dark brown with lasting tan head. Smokey woody leafy bready chocolate boozy vanilla aroma. Very sweet chocolate vanilla woody plummy booze with woody ashy smokey boozy finish. Full body rich creamy. Way too sweet for my tastes. I love smoked beers but I do not like Baltic porters (in general). Bad combo for me. Still, a good beer, but I was hoping for a new fave.

ryecatcher (1108) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2015
750mL bottle (2015). Gotta admit, I must be attracted to shiny things as that silver wax looks pretty dope. Pours a deep, brownish-black (looks like a stout), espresso brownish head with very nice retention and lacing. Nose is a heavy hit of smokiness, roasted almonds, cocoa, more smoke. Mouth is medium bodied, silky, medium sweetness with a big fucking wallop of smoke over a base of raisins, chocolate, dark roasted coffee, hints of licorice, finishes with a bit of brine. Iím not a huge fan of smoked beers -- and just an FYI the claim on the bottle that this is subtle is total bullshit... this is as smoky as a BBQ pit, and I already had been told beforehand -- however this one was better than some others Iíve had. Surly is easily one of my favorite breweries.
