Get Surly! Heres 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.

Oatmeal aroma. Nice fluffy brown head. Dark brown appearance, looks thinner than a stout but thicker than an ale. Very nice coffee and oatmeal on the front with some vanilla on the aftertaste. Really nice.

bwa5879 (826) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Really muddy dark brown pour with a thin haze of oatmeal fizz on top. Aroma of toffee, maybe cinnamon? sweeter chocolate and cream, herbal presence too. Lively carbonation for the style, thicker almost sticky mouthfeel, finishes clean. Fairly straightforward mellow oat flavor accompanied by some mesquite wood, Mexican chocolate, toffee, strong acidic coffee, possibly some cinnamon. Pretty unique oatmeal stout.

ARH (979) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
16oz can, not poured. For the appearance, Im going to give it an average rating based on other reviews. The aromas are mild with notes of oats, herbs, caramel, a bit of ash, and some chocolate. Its medium sweet and bitter, with perhaps a touch more bitterness. Its smooth with a fuzzy and lightly fizzy carbonation. The medium-light body is roasty with herbal notes, chocolate, coffee, molasses, and secondary touches of vanilla, and cream (and perhaps even some coconut). The finish is ash and herbs and the ash lingers with coffee and a slight tobacco.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
16 oz can at Newts in Rochester, Minnesota, served in a pint glass. Pours clear reddish brown with a large tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves lots of fine lace. The nose has lots of herbal hops, bready malts, oatmeal and earth along with a mild resinous hoppy note. The flavour is mildly sweet throughout with brown sugar and nutty, bready malts; this is paired up with a slight resinous hoppy note. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, toasted malts and perhaps coconut come through as well. The finish is long and balanced, with vanilla, cocoa, resin and pine. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture. Overall, a decent nut brown ale-meets-oatmeal stout. 2014-12-15

Atom (1915) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Can pours a dark brown with Amber highlights and a large khaki head. Aroma of molasses, caramel, and cocoa. Taste similar to aroma with some dry bitter hops and a smooth palate. A nice brown.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5769) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Sampled from a 16oz can this beer poured a dark brown color with a large creamy orange-brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was somewhat bitter with floral hops, sour dark fruits and toffee. The flavor was tangy and sour with malt, oatmeal, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, nut and a bit of sour dark fruits. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Interesting.
