A New Age

In the farthest, deepest fathoms of the ocean, light is but a rumor. That vast, benighted place where the leviathans hold sway.

Age of Leviathans, Surly’s BC Small Batch offering for September and October, reaches similar depths of flavor, sweetness, and body. Brewed with a new “ruby” chocolate variant—noted for being rich, fruity and just slightly tart—plus raspberry puree, lactose, and vanilla beans, it’s complex, rich, and rules all that it surveys.

It’s available to U.S. Surly markets beginning Monday, September 6th. If you like big beers, this one’s a Leviathan.

The particulars:

  • Style: Stout
  • Malt: Golden Promise, 2-Row, Midnight Wheat, Oats, Honey Malt, Oat Malt, Chocolate Malt, Special B, Black Malt
  • Hops: Warrior
  • Yeast: English Ale
  • Special guests: Lactose, Raspberry, Ruby Chocolate, Vanilla
  • Color: Black
  • ABV: 11.9%
  • Bitterness: Low
