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.

From can, yet another note from Dark Lord Day. Solid brown with a very thin head poured from half a can. Smell is quite alcoholic. Like a stout with all the bitter, roasty malt removed. This sample has gone a little bit flat. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light for what this is. Tends toward malt with just enough hops to keep it from sweetness. Goes down quite easily.

On tap at the brewery. Brown pour with a kaki head. Malty aromas. Caramel malts, toffee, and hints of orange peel. Good body and mouthfeel. Smooth.

solidfunk (7222) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Not a whole lot too this. Light roast and lots of mash malt. Might be better fresh, but not a top brown ale for me. Dark mahogany pour. Tangy mash finish. Tap at Churchkey.

yourilevesque (1228) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Merci à Stéphane pour cette canette pour le moins... étonnante. Liquide brun foncé et translucide. Des arômes de sucre d’orge, de cerises au marasquin, de malts sucrés et sans subtilité. Peu ou pas de goût. Un peu de café peut-être et d’amertume qui provient d’on ne sait où. Pas de houblons, ni de torréfaction. Une amertume cheap. Finale mince de vieilles chaussettes. Moche moche moche.

Wow. This is much better for mine than the coffee version. Big, tawny body, lots of caramel and dark mats, almost stout like.Drinks much bigger than 5 %. World class.
