look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
A: Dark brown body with a nice sized head with great retention and sheets of lacing. The head eventually becomes very spotty, which Surly beers seem to do a lot. Doesn't get better than this.
S: Smells of strong roasted malts with chocolate and toffee.
T: Very similar to the scent. Strong roasted malts with toffee, chocolate, and some earthiness. Small hints of cream.
Overall: For a little bit I was starting to get bored of Bender, but the on-tap totally revived it for me. Drinkability is amazing amazing on this beer, I could drink it all day long.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark brown head with an inch or so of light brown head. A tad bit dark for Decent retention and a good amount of lacing. A little bit of mild sweetness in the aroma paired with dark chocolate and a little nuttiness. Good balance in the taste. Nothing over the top. A little bit of sweetness, followed by caramel. Lightly roasted coffee and slight hints of chocolate.A little bit thinner than I expected, with a touch of creaminess. Goes down really easy. I could knock back a few of these.
Overall, I consider this one to be a curious case. This is the second can of this that I've had. The first one was a bit fresher. I'm not liking it as much this time around. The aroma and taste seem a bit milder this time around.
Serving type: can
