To 0l: Sur Malek

From famed Danish brewery To 0l comes the Sur Malek, a sour ale according to Untappd, that like many beers from the brewery, is designed to challenge our conventions of what this type of beer should be. In our review we noted that it was really closer to being a sour stout, although it also claims to be an imperial stout.

It’s an interesting beer, but we were mixed on whether we would seek to drink it again.

There is a lot of sourness in this beer … And I would never ever call this an imperial stout.

– Chris

It’s not as sour as I was expecting, but you know when you drink it that this is no ordinary imperial stout. I would drink it again.

– Jeff

It’s not a stout, but you couldn’t say what it is. I appreciate it for doing something different, but I wouldn’t drink it again.

– Paul

Sur Malek by To 0l was featured in Season Two, Episode Two.

He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells.
