  • Had a glass at Darkness Day 2010 off of a free pour from Surly. Was probably more like an eight ounce pour, share with Mark.

    Poured clear but slightly opaque into a plastic cup. Tan, frothy foam was just a thick as the pour. Retention was outstanding with some nice wave like and sticky lacing.

    Aroma wasn't that strong but it was drank outside, so that could have something to do with it. Roasted, coffee, vanilla, and maybe even a little bit left of center wildness.

    Taste was very similar. Nothing really fantastic came out here but nothing took away from it either.

    Body was probably the toughest to deal with as I expected more: light, maybe heavy end of light body. Carbonation was okay.

    Based on all the hype that seemed to go through the crowd when this beer when on tap: disappointed. Definitely see where it gets it basis from Bender but just comes a bit thin. I was hoping a limited beer with hype would live up to it - no such luck. Still solid. Enjoy!
