COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our regular Bender beer with Guatemalan coffee, and roasted locally at Coffee & Tea Limited in Linden Hills. Coldpress coffee aromas, intense coffee flavors balanced by the oats in the malt bill, resulting in a cappuccino-like creaminess.

Can, a gift from WeeHeavySD, thank you! Pours a deep dark brown with a small off-white head. Big coffee aroma, a bit creamy, with malt and dark chocolate. Taste is quite bitter, lots of coffee, baker’s chocolate, and malt. Lingering coffee bitterness that has a watery underside. Quite nice.

Can sample at Noogfest High 5. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Can sample at Noogfest High 5 thanks to heemer77. Poured a light brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aromas of roast malt and coffee. The flavor found caramel and coffee. Light body.

Can thanks to Hophead22.. Pours dark red brown with a creamy off white head.. Aroma is fresh coffee beans and earth..Nice coffee flavor that is slightly hoppy.. Super smooth and easy to drink.. Damn I wish Surly was easier to get.

Dark brown in color, total coffee aroma. Smells more like a great brew from Caribou than Surly. Wonderful coffee flavor permeates the brown ale. Dare I say this is the perfect beer to drink in the morning?

16oz can. Dark amber with a red tint. Pretty good coffee aroma, couldn’t get much more than coffee. Dry and roasty with a lot of coffee aftertaste and a bit of hop bitterness, pretty good.

Poured a clear deep brown-amber color. The aroma was of old coffe and vegetables with notes of an ash tray. Roasted malt flavor with some sweetness. Coffee finish. Light bodied.

This poured a darker brown color with a big off white head. Aroma was just loads and loads of coffee, some caramel as well. Flavor was lots and lots of coffee some sweetness as well. I think this stuff is much better at room temp than chilled.

On tap at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul, MN. Pours with just a ring of head. It’s a fairly dark but translucent beer, almost with a hint of red to it. Lots of coffee in the smell and taste. I also got a pretty hoppy flavor from it.

Can at the 3rd release of CL Cuvee de Castleton: Pours a hazy brown with a dense tan head. Lots of dark crystal malt character in the aroma- deep and toasted with just a mild coffee roast hint. Light body- but with firm malt character. Lots of crystal malt in the flavor- dark husky flavors and mild coffee presence offering a touch of tannic roast. I like that the coffee is subtle. Pretty nice.
