COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Surly’s Fourth Anniversary beer. An iced double espresso milk stout. In the Surly brewhouse brewing our Anniversary beers means one thing, forget what you know and try something different. Brewed with too many Espresso beans, too much Roasted Barley, and a healthy dose of Milk sugar, this Double Espresso Milk Stout has layers of chocolate, espresso and smoke flavors intertwined with a velvety lush body.

On tap at the beer hall, pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Big roasted espresso aroma, sweet milk chocolate and molasses. Taste of sweet milk chocolate with a heavy dose of roasted dry espresso, a touch of bitterness, slick and smooth on the palate. Great balance of sweetness and dry bitter roast. Perfection.

Tap at the source. Pours black, nice tan head. Aroma is very roasted, lots of coffee, some chocolate and lactose. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, really good. The roasted coffee is so robust but the lactose lends a brilliant element. Well done.

Bottle at Levi’s tasting. Really glad I got a pour of this one. Pours dark with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is espresso, some chocolate, roasted malts. Very good beer, wow. Sweet chocolate, smooth, coffee/espresso held up great. Really a good beer, hadn’t had it since I joined Ratebeer, glad I got to try it again.

Traded bottle, not sure how old this is these days. Really a wonderful sweet stout. Really fun stout to drink. Nice espresso notes throughout with the slightest hint of cream and sugar. Very well done and has lost nothing with a little age on it.

Sample from a friend. Strong smell of chili (probably the coffee), coffee, choclate. Similar taste but also sweet and creamy. Very nice beer, probably one of the best coffee-beers I’ve had.

750 ml bottle sampled at RBSG 2010 via Puddintane maybe (notes). Pours dark brown to black with a small fine beige head. The aroma and flavor had a great roasted malt, chocolate, coffee espresso and mild smoked character. The sweetness works well with the bitterness from the coffee. Medium plus body with a smooth finish. Tasty.

Shared a bottle of this. Poured a near black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt notes, coupled with some strange green peppers and something else strange that I can’t put my fingers on. Flavor had notes of chocolate milk, light brown sugar, sweet notes. Flavor wins out over the smell!

Bouteille de 750 ml partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal. Arôme: Odeur de café avec une pointe de chocolat noir. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de café avec une pointe de chocolat et de lactose. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de café en arrière goût. (Rating #4957)
