On tap at the Blue Nile.

Thoroughly darkened appearance, a solid brown, with a sturdy, if slim head of cocoa-tinged foam riding on top.

Tart fruit starts the nose, then molasses, sweet caramel malt...the cranberries merge well the other great flavors found in One, and hold ground above. But there is no single dominant factor, instead, a brilliant blending.

Taste: Yum. Just yum. Dark, sweet, and lightly tart, the better parts of a rich malty lager given an extra fruity zing. Or zang. Or zabbityzazz. Take your pick.
Sip again, and it's scrumptious once more. Full bodied in the mouth, long, sweet, fruity finish.
Terribly smooth, no rough spots here at all. Tastiness all around.
an excellent dessert beer, or an exquisite closer on a night's imbibing.
Any way you try it, please do. Another winner from Surly.

Into a Westmalle glass at Blue Nile, poured a dark cranberry to bourbon brown, with a small light tan head, easily brought back with a swirl when receded, the lacing is basically non-existent. The aroma is lovely, the cranberry perhaps the most evident here. Other dark fruits popped up, but mostly masked by the cranberry.

The taste is much similiar to the aroma, but everything else comes out better, and is much harder to pull apart and describe. The cranberry melts into the other fruits of the original, figs, berries, raisins, delicious. Sweet malts, a full body, and so incredibly smooth, and its finish is fantastic and long and drawn out. Once again, Surly tweaks their already delicious brew, and it comes out brilliantly.
