look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A- Pours a clear dark brown with dark ruby hues with an off white tan head that is 2 fingers with loads of lacing.
S- Nice roasted malt, sweet dark chocolate, mocha, molasses, hint of vanilla and earthy hop bite at the end. Seems thin.
T- Nice balance of hops and malt in this brown, still more hops which is good. Nice earthy hops followed by roasted malt, dark chocolate powder, dry molasses(I know), finish is definately dry with a nice earthy hop finish.
M- Medium body with light slightly fluffy carbonation which is nice for the style, finish is crisp and dry which I enjoy.
D- Very easy to drink Surly beers, they seem to make me happy with their drinkability and low ABV while still making some tasty beers.

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.
