Get Surly! Heres what happens when substance meets smooth. This oatmeal brown ale defies traditional categories. Bender begins crisp and lightly hoppy, complemented by the velvety sleekness oats deliver. Belgian and British malts usher in cascades of cocoa, coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla and cream. An easy-drinking ale with many layers of satisfaction.

HuskerTan (2145) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Can. A- Oak, subtle booze, fruit esters, chocolate. A- Brown mahogany color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Caramel, malty, subtle fruits. P- Medium body, slightly thin texture, average carbonation, complex finish O- Easily one of the best brown ales Ive had. Didnt get any coffee, vanilla, or anything really that I expected. Instead it smelled and tasted like a lighter bodied scotch ale. Quite frankly, I dont care as it was tasty.

Can thanks to trade with HuskerTan! Pours a slightly hazy deep brown with thin wispy tan head. Aroma of dark roast coffee and a hint of clean fruity esters. Taste follows, mild and clean. Decent brown ale, but not sure the hype is there.

solidfunk (8685) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Not a whole lot too this. Light roast and lots of mash malt. Might be better fresh, but not a top brown ale for me. Dark mahogany pour. Tangy mash finish. Tap at Churchkey.

yourilevesque (1802) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Merci Stphane pour cette canette pour le moins... tonnante. Liquide brun fonc et translucide. Des armes de sucre dorge, de cerises au marasquin, de malts sucrs et sans subtilit. Peu ou pas de got. Un peu de caf peut-tre et damertume qui provient don ne sait o. Pas de houblons, ni de torrfaction. Une amertume cheap. Finale mince de vieilles chaussettes. Moche moche moche.

Wow. This is much better for mine than the coffee version. Big, tawny body, lots of caramel and dark mats, almost stout like.Drinks much bigger than 5 %. World class.
