Most rauchbiers are overly smokey.  And most porters taste like headache to me.  Smoked porter??  Sounds like a bad fucking idea...

In this case the beer is smokey, as expected, and I can tell it's a porter.  But it works.  Really well.

The smoke balances out the boozy porter base in a rather pleasing way.  The body is really light, and the finish is clean, too.  So this is just plain good.

I can picture myself finishing a four-pack if it weren't so goddamn expensive.  Then again... the NSP is actually pretty good.  Damn you, Evil Twin!
