Coffee Bender

Thanks go out to the groovy one for a chance to crack this one. 16 oz can.
Nice, garnet color with super clarity. Lovely, high mocha head that fades fairly quickly due to the low carbonation of the can. Lace is there, sticky but not huge.
The coffee grounds hit the nose right out of the box, but the funny thing is that it seems to fade quite quickly. I was surprised at that.
This is a beer that lends itself very nicely to a little coffee treatment. I love the way that Surly have kept this under control. The ABV, the style and the coffee are all understated. Unusual for any American brewer and especially restrained for Surly.
Very drinkble because of the subtlety of the beer. Surprised (and delighted) by its simplicity since I was expecting a much more complicated beer and was pleased that I DIDN’T get it! Nice stuff.
