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.

Can. Dark brown with a little tan head. Sweet nutty toffee plus coffee aroma-smells like it should be damn tasty. Has all of those flavors along with an ample but not biting hop presence. Smooth creamy mouthfeel that dries out enough at the finish to keep you grabbing for more. Very drinkable and very flavorful aren’t an easy combination to come up with. Great on its own and with dinner. A great drinking ale that crosses into multiple styles and pleases the palate.
