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.

Sample from tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown to black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavour is dominated by roasted malts but has some hoppiness sticking out. Bitter finish, but clearly more mild than the coffee version.

Can, thx to akevitt. I had some doubts how to rate this one, as it was surely infected or way past BB-date. No date on the can though. I ended up trying to ignore the sourish aromas and flavors and I hope I will get a new chance some day. It poured a clear, dark brown with a beige to tan head. The aroma had chocolate, lots of fruity hops, a little smoked hint and some sourness. Chocolate, some sourness, malt and caramel in the flavor, leading to a quite bitter finish with some chocolate. Full body. Even though it was gone bad in a way, it was still a good beer, but I think a can in this condition would have been way too much to finish on my own. (080301)
