Can: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, light berries, and a hint of nuttiness. It’s a reddish-brown with some transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with caramel, berries, and chocolate. Finishes with light roasted nut notes and a hint of earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Can. Can’t believe that I haven’t rated this yet. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, hops, nuts and grain. Pours a rich dark brown with some amber highlights and a huge khaki head. Flavor has some nice grassy hops, dark chocolate and some roasted malt. Very crisp on the palate with average carbonation. xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Very nice malty aroma. Pours with a lightly off-light-brown head. Taste is malty and hoppy with a nutty taste. Very citric hops make a certain initial crispness, but fades into a coffee flavor. Very decent! RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 10, 2007
Can, chris_o shindig. Dark copper brown with thin off-white head. Nose is sweet, sickly. Mouth is sweet with some sour taint to it. Keeps sweet with some metallic cannyness towards the very finish. harrisoni (18399) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Can at Chris_o Shindig. Very deep brown/red with beige head. Terrific malts. Really deep, rounded. Tastes stronger. Oxidised port aroma. Good beer, pretty intense. Good hop on end and nice choc.

_o. Blackcurrant and chocolate malts aroma. Dark brown, beige head, good lace. Sweet, roasted, coffee, black berries. Soft mouthfeel with a dry bit harsh finish.
A Mes rate:
Can at Chris O’s Shindig. Another goode canned offering from Surly. Darkish brown with a reasonable creamy head. Lots of malt, lots of hops, plenty of fruit, obvious alcohol even at a reasonably restrained abv. Some caramel and a bitter ing finish. No finesse but pretty tasty.

Pours a great looking deep chestnut brown with a sturdy khaki head. Nutty and light spice malt notes on the nose with a bit of hops. Nice creamy palate. Slightly sweet nutty taste with a twinge of hops in the middle, yielding to a mellow malt finish. A great brown ale and a real nice-looking beer. MHED (114) - lisle, USA - AUG 7, 2007

Canned - Chris O shindig 2007 - A dark brown beer with hints of purple. The aroma is malty and has big alcohol notes. Seems very Barley winish in the nose. Big flavours also. Hops, malt and alcohol. Really cannot believe this is a 5.1% Brown Ale. Amazing brewery.
