Poured from can into tulip glass.

A: Pours a beautiful golden brown with one finger white head. Some nice lacing.

S: Iced coffee, caramel, malts.

T: Straight forward brown ale with nice coffee flavors. Taste is all coffee all the time.

M: Full bodied and nicely carbonated.

O: A classic example of a well executed brown ale, and the coffee only makes it that much better. Nice job Surly!

One of Surly's best beers, in my opinion. This is the coffee drinker's choice in beer. Its wonderful mix of coffee and Ale give it a very distinguished taste. I've affectionately named this beer the Minnesota paper maker, because I'd often find myself sipping on one while writing long winded political science essays. The caffeine gets your mind going, while the smooth 5.1% get's you loosened up just enough to ramble, but not enough to get you Surly.
