Kudos to Surly for creativity on this one...
A - pours a very dark brown with a mahogany tinge. very good 2-finger head which quickly dissipates into a ring and leaves a nice, sticky lace.
S - about all that's going on here is the smell of cold coffee. as it warms it smells like coffee that's had milk & sugar added.
T - cold coffee, with a little sweetness and nuttiness.
M - very light body... it's hard to get used to drinking a coffee-flavored beer that isn't a stout or a porter.
O - Overall Surly gets an A for effort. I'd drink this again and I'd recommend it to others, but I'm thinking there's a reason that you don't see too many coffee-flavored brown ales. It's good, but won't win any awards.
