Tap at Surly. Tiny baby glass. Made for ants. Pours a clear ruby red. No head but its a tiny glass. No lacing. Kinda bland. Taste like a weird brown ale. Some sweetness and toffee. Some dark fruits, sweet, vanilla and smooth. Good stuff. Surprisingly smooth.

On Draught
Pours a crimson hued brown with a small head.

Aroma is lightly toasty with a mild booziness & a bit of cherry. Slightly nutty... rich, chill.

The flavor is rich & nutty with some big booziness, some light cherry, a bit of leafy hops & a touch of roast.

Straightforward & good
