First, I just want to say HOLY SHIT this is one amazing beer. Nothing like what I expected. This one is damn near perfect.
Appearance is a deep dark ruby red, almost black, much like a porter. Smell is amazingly sweet with just the smallest hit of roasted malt. Taste, as always, follows smell, very sweet, but also offering up a dryness that is hard to find is all malt beers. I went to Common Roots Cafe and ordered two off the bat, they keep their taps too cold. But for this one, I have to say that a little on the colder side is better. It gets a little raw as it warms up. What I would really like is to see some of this stuff get aged for a year or two, maybe at Cafe Twenty Eight?
Nice creamy body, a little thin but the low levels of carbonation make up for that.
At 10%ABV this one is dangerously drinkable, the two I had were gone way to fast and if they wern't 6 bucks for a 12 oz pour I might have had more..
This is yet another amazing beer from Todd and Surly, I can't wait to try Four...

From a special keg sent from the brewery for Dennis Brother's 10th anniversary store event. Poured into a clear plastic cup.
Appearance: A very dark brownish black with a light hint of amber. About a couple fingers of off white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A pretty sweet and fruity aroma. Dark roasted malts with some hints of dark bread, chocolate, toffee, and burnt caramel. Huge presence of dark fruits with hints of raisin, dark cherry, plums, and fig. A good amount of molasses and brown sugar. Also some hints of honey, apple, and vanilla.
Taste: Like it smells, a pretty sweet taste that is very forward with the dark fruits and sugar, but not cloying. Some dark malts with fairly mild notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, and dark biscuit. A good dose of molasses and brown sugar. Really big taste of dark and ripe fruits. Notes of raisin, cherries, plums, figs, apple, and pear. Honey is actually kind of tame compared to the fruits. A little bit of vanilla. Very good taste here.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and slick. Somewhat sticky. Alcohol is hidden very well considering how high it is.
Overall: A very good and interesting brew. My first experience with this style. With a couple years of age the dark fruits really shine. Nice to be able to try this.
