On March 31st, 2014, the collaborative minds of Surly's Head Brewer Todd Haug and De Proef's Brewmaster Dirk Naudts brewed this one of a kind ale. Inspired by English Old Ales and Belgian chocolate they sat down and, over diligent tasting sessions, hammered out the "best" way to handle their vision.
The result is Long of Tooth Ale, dark gold in color with a complex grain bill, rife with notes of toffee, caramel, dried-fruit, cocoa, oaky-vanilla and finishing with classic Belgian character that only Brett can produce.
Suggested pairings include aged cheeses, grilled or roasted game, chocolate caramel deserts or enjoy it all by itself!
Cheers from Mark Minneapolis and Lochristi!
