Just cause it's dark and German doesn't mean it's an alt. Based on the obscure Kottbusser style of beer, this surprisingly dry beer retains all the aroma and nuance of honey (from bees) and molasses (not from bees) creating a perception of sweetness through cool, controlled fermentation. Because we're sweet enough damn it.

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.
