Surly Coffee Bender

Although I didn’t get a chance to hit up Darkness Day this year a friend of mine, Ed, made the journey. Besides scoring me a bottle of 2011 Darkness, he also brought back some Furious and Coffee Bender. Two of my favorite beers from Surly Brewing Company.

Even though I am not a fan of coffee, when it comes to an American craft beer being infused with coffee: I am a fan. Coffee Bender, which weighs in as beer number 332, is infused with coffee and does a great job doing so. Roast, dark chocolate, and bread accent the coffee in the both the nose and mouth.

A medium body that is helped by a solid carbonation, Coffee Bender goes down quite easily, enticingly. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 10 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.2

Useless Fact: James Buchanan was the only United States president never to marry. During his term in office, his niece Harriet lane played the role of First Lady.
