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.

Bouteille de 750 ml, merci beaucoup à Fred. Arômes de lait au chocolat et de café. Robe noire et opaque, peu de mousse et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, on retrouve une forte impression de lait au chocolat. Malgré la présence du café, elle demeure relativement peu rôtie pour une Imperial Stout et les notes maltées portent surtout vers le cacao. Finale assez courte, douce et sucrée, peu amère. À cet âge, l’alcool est très peu apparent. Une belle stout dessert, à boire en petite quantité.

Jet black pour with a single finger espresso head. Lots of lace present. Aroma is sweet, a little coppery. Creamy full mouth. Taste is full of sweet coffee. Reminds me of a cup of coffee with a little booze in it. Chocolate creeps in as well. Really nice beer, but I think the fermentation could have been a little bit cleaner. There are some boozy qualities to this that knock it down a notch.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a brown head. Chocolate aromas. Silky smooth with dark chocolates, dark roasted malt, and delicious expresso notes. Really good body and mouthfeel. Feel like a much bigger stout. Lactose and caramel backbeats. Bravo.

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.
