This beer is amazing. Like a ton of bricks balanced on a tightrope. Love it.
Had it at the Muddy Pig – where the glassware always smells a little like their detergent. Hey at least it’s clean!
Everything seems to be in balance with this one. It’s easy to drink and packs a punch; a huge beer in palatable form. I can’t think of anything bad about my Darkness experience. I may have expected a more extreme beer from Surly, but was even more pleased to get a great beer that was good all-around.
Surly’s best, in my opinion, but definitely not a session beer. One is good for me. I think it’s still available at Cafe Twenty-Eight, and for sure it’s on tap at Common Roots Cafe…
I love this stuff. ‘Nuff said.
This years’ release of Darkness is much more accessible and sessionable than 07 in my opinion (altho I liked last years better I think), while still packing a wallop of malts and hops to enjoy. Chilled and in a pint glass it was incredible; I can only imagine how good it will be at 55 degrees and in a nice tulip glass. Proper. Grab a glass while supplies last.
Sweet, dark, a little creamy, smooth finish, strong as hell. “Intensely flavored” is damn right. PERFECT.
