Defreni (2658) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
Fad: Brun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Masser af kakao i duften, men samtidig er den også bakket op af et godt skud citrushumle som gør at øllen ikke kammer over. Meget fin øl og meget drikbar.

Tap at binkies. Dark brown pour with nice head. Awesome coffee and vanilla nose. Clean, crisp, coffee finish. I have had this the last few years and dare to say as a coffee lover this is the best yet. A nice surprise, well done Surly! Cheers!

piscator34 (1997) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
On draft. Ruby brown in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate milk powder, pale malt, and a touch of roast. Fairly milk chocolate focused in the mouth, along with elements of vanilla, minerals and red grape. Slick bodied, but the finish is refreshing and dry. I still prefer coffee Bender, but this isn’t too far off in terms of quality.

@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-11-8: stor doft och smak av torr choklad samt små toner av kaffe och vanilj. Lite för tunn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
