COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Get Surly! Here’s what happens when substance meets smooth. This oatmeal brown ale defies traditional categories. Bender begins crisp and lightly hoppy, complemented by the velvety sleekness oats deliver. Belgian and British malts usher in cascades of cocoa, coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla and cream. An easy-drinking ale with many layers of satisfaction.

Very smooth and drinkable. Kind of a mix of a stout, porter and ale. Dark roasted malts with a nice hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best brown ales I’ve ever enjoyed. It’s more complex and flavorful than many that I’ve had. It’s very sweet but it also has a bit of spice. This is one of those beers that unveils something new in each sip. Consequently, it’s also one of those beers that disappears way too quickly.
