I chose to give up a regular Gold as payment for muling, no biggie, still a good deal at $27/bottle overall, after mule payment.

Surly Fifteen is out, prob will buy a can. Grand Cru, which I’m always on the fence about. It could be great, it could suck. I dunno. In the biz, we call that “FOR SCIENCE!” ;)

I thought 15 was a fine effort — kind of amazing they got their hands on Parker’s Heritage Heavy Char Barrels… wish I could taste that note more, but it’s a bit muddled with everything else. Very rich dark fruit, malt and sweetness. Seemed more like a big beligian/barleywine than some of the grand cru tarty things I’ve had. There isn’t any really boozy or astringent notes that you sometimes get in that style either.

Cracked it, and I agree with the above. Some Crus I have had are way too sweet, and this was not at all. Very balanced and full flavored. Definitely worth a buy.
