Draft at Parlor City. Pours dark brown with very little head. Nose is coffee. Taste is coffee with dark chocolate. Better than coffee Bender.

Great coffee and chocolate smell. Dark brown appearance with tan head. Coffee and lovely chocolate taste that’s mildly bitter. My favorite version of Bender!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma combines bitter chocolate and coffee with a backing of dark grains and light roast. Flavor has more coffee with a growing chocolate and some dark grains backing.

Defreni (2724) - 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!

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.
