Surly Eight is a described as an oat-wine style, with milk sugar and aged in High West Rye Whiskey barrels.

Brewed with Golden Promise and Aromatic malt Oats, and Milk sugar fermented in stainless steel then aged in High West Rye Whiskey barrels, this golden hued Oat-Wine style ale summons notes of spicy vanilla marshmallow and aromas of honey and whIskey.
