COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed July 2006 with a blend of 7 different malts and candi sugar. This is our first in a series of anniversary beers. Look for something unique from Surly every new year. We let Todd brew whatever he wants for this series. Yikes! Only 10 barrels of this beer are available. Notes of licorice, vanilla, plum, raisins, and malt. 9% abv, 28 IBU, Color--tawny brown.

(draft, thanks to Omar) Creamy beige head with nice lacing atop hazy copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cherry, caramel, lager yeast. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, caramel, honey, some fig/plum. Smooth medium-full body, some sticky. Seems like a doppelbock to me.

hopscotch (10609) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Draft… RBSG 07… Crystal clear, very dark ruby lager with a medium-sized, creamy, khaki head. Incredible retention. Very vinous and sweet in both the aroma and flavor; plenty of toffee, port and caramel. Full-bodied with ticklish carbonation. Dark fruit, caramel, sweet finish.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a light red hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains, dark fruits, Belgian yeast and a bit of toffee supporting. Flavor is sweet grain heavy supported by strong Belgian yeast, some raisin, a decent amount of date and a hint of toffee.

Tap at Surly. Amber chestnut pour with a spotty head. Sweet toffee with some mild dark fruit. Big and bold, yet easy drinking. Excellent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewery on 6/23/07: Pours a transparent dark amber mahogany with a nicely-lacing frothy light tan head. Sweet sugary dark caramel German malty nose has a hint of light fruits and dough. Starts thick and dark caramely sweet with some toffee and authentic German lager yeastiness with a hint of mildly tart light fruits before a sticky, grainy caramel finish that hides the alcohol well. A good doppelbock.

On tap at brewery after RBSG tour. A ddp amber pour wht a light tan head. A slight hint of malty brown sugar on the nose. An interesting malty drink with alot of sweetness and a presence of abv. Mouthfeel is as soldi as the flavor. Carbonation is excellent. If you like a sweet beer you will love this offering.
