The palate and finish of this ale are poor. Extremely thin, watery and flat. Flavor does not match the nose (which isn't too bad - chocolate, coffee, roasts) and wrecks the experience. Not a great product from a respected brewer. Pales in comparison quality wise to the rest of the Surly offerings. I realize it's intended as a different beast but let's be blunt and honest - if you tasted this blind you would not reach for it again. Meek would be a better name.

Draft at Churchkey DC

Appearance: brown pour with decent head and lacing

Smell: toasted malt, breat and biscuits.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, although a bit sharp and chocolatey. Slightly watery

Mouthfeel: thin, not much substance here

Overall: not particularly impressive, although nice it is 4.20%. Would potentially be better on cask.
