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.

Good stuff here! Shared at the last C-bus tasting. Almost black pour. Lots of chocolate milk and coffee in the aroma. Great mouthfeel--creamy and very smooth. Taste is milk chocolate and a bit of roasted coffee. The flavors work very well together.

Super strong coffee aroma, strong malty caramel sweetness, syrupy palate, nice lacing, roasted coffee aftertaste. Pretty perfect! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge beer. When it was at its coldest, I thought it was more of a barrel aged beer. It has a lot of sweetness and a vanilla edginess. As it warmed, I got much more of the espresso and there were moments that it could have been overpowering. The alcohol is noticeable. Very good, but didn’t want too much of this. On tap at brewery.

Keg @ Surly. Deep brown pour with a lasting creamy tan head. Strong espresso nose. Substantial roast grain. Marshmallow and brown sugar. Flavor is rich and very creamy. Ashy roast, burnt brown sugar. Dark chocolate fudge. Strong espresso character. Moderately bitter finish. Harmonious, well structured. Easy to drink. Smooth, creamy body. Quite good.

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.
