3.66/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours out a hazy dark brown, almost black, with red highlights. Smells chocolaty, with lots of earthy, herbal, grassy hops. Taste is very sweet, with lots of chocolate malt. Lots of fruity esters, as well; almost like gummy candy in its flavor. Solid, lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, compared to what is going on with the flavor, and considering the alcoholic heft. Overall, this is decent, but nothing to go crazy about.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Real ale version of this beer. 12 oz can.

1 finger of creamy tan head. Color is black. Lots of lace left.

Flavor profile: A lot of caramel malts and chocolate. Hop resiny juiciness. Grapefruit and orange. Dark fruits. Molasses. Raisins. Piney hops.

Mouthfeel: Sticky, bitter, roasted. Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Ends fairly clean.

Overall, very similar, if not identical to the surly version. Hoppy, lightly roasted, and dark.

Serving type: can
