Thanks jan2 for this super cool extra! Enjoyed from a goose island flute.

a - brew poured an amber brown that was semi transparent when held to the light. The beer poured with a thin off grey bubbly head that dissolved leaving a ring of bubbles on the surface where the beer met the glass and small islands of bubbles. Really nice clarity with visible soft even carbonation.

s - nose is honey oat and grain. Subtle earthiness

t - yum, very solid toasted malt. Earthy and nutty. Exactly as described...a medley of honey, oat, and molases.

m - great body. Medium to full bodied with bold and rich flavors.

o - a really well made beer. Very enjoyable. I look forward to trying more from this brewery. I hear they will be coming to NY soon, can't wait!

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
5.3% ABV, 18 IBUs, 13.5°P

A - Deep ruby mahogany in color, Scurry, despite it's darkness, is still clear. The short ivory head puts the beer's name into action, disappearing rather rapidly.

S - Rich Munich malts bring breadiness straight to the front of the nose, brushed with notes of smooth wheat and chocolate; a milk chocolate truffle perhaps. Clover honey sweetness peeks through with traces of delicious, delicious molasses following behind.

T - Scurry, with all it's ingredients, has a lot going on in the flavor. Big malty breadiness is the showcase of the beer but its chocolate notes stem directly from this, wonderfully blending with honey sweetness and a splash of molasses along the finish.

M - Wheat and flaked oats contribute a beautifully smooth, almost creamy feel to this medium-bodied beer while nearly unnoticeable hops keep everything in check with balance as Scurry finishes with clean balance.

O - Altbiers aren't done a whole lot but Off Color's Scurry is a very nice, unique take on this German style, keeping in line with the malt and hop profile while spicing things up with wheat and flaked oats for a smooth body and honey and molasses for sweetness and a little sumthin' special.
