COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Another Caucasian Gary is a white Russian inspired ale made with vanilla, coffee, brown sugar and milk sugar. This dark brown ale is loaded with aromas of coffee and sweet sugar. Flavors of caramel and candied sugars are evident. Subtle hints of coffee is found in the finish, creating a truly unique tasting experience.

Tap. Pours brown with thin head. Has an odd cream and slight coffee aroma. The taste is very similar to a white Russian but to thin needs more creamy mouth and Booz heat

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is brown with a thin head that falls away after a few moments, leaving a faint trail of lacing. The aroma brings cream, ashes, light smoke, and a hint of vanilla. The taste is unique and interesting, as are most beers by Short’s. Tobacco flavors mingle with light roast, cream, vanilla. The body is thin, with moderate carbonation. Alcohol presence is subtle. Overall, this was pretty interesting. I wouldn’t want a lot of it, but I am very glad to have tried it, and enjoyed my small pour. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-06-2011

The appearence is a cloudy light caramel. the nose has a savory and peppery aspect. The palate does have a peppery feel with somes sweet notes. INTERESTING to say the least. Just a touch to sweet for my palate.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Draft at GABF. This one is a bit of a train wreck. Pours amber with an offwhite head. The nose is overwhelmingly coffee and cheap coffee at that. Tartness in the nose as well. Kind of odd. On tasting, coffee then a strong tartness. Seems like this beer has turned for the worse. Not good at all, Gary.

Draft. Cloudy reddish-amber in color with a small off-white head. Despite appearances, the aroma has Bailey’s and Kahlua sure enough, along with toffee notes and earth. The flavor is rather on-target with milky/creamy and coffee notes to go with a caramel/toffee sweetness. Medium-bodied and fairly smooth with lower carbonation. Well, whether or not this is actually good, they got what they were going for about right and you have to give them credit for that.

Sampled at GABF 2011. This beer pours an amber color with an offwhite head. Aroma of sweet cream, coffee grounds, some smoke. Flavor is smokey with lactose sweetness, some chocolate and coffee. I don’t really get the white russian thing from this beer. This is kind of disappointing. But, both expecting a beer to be like a White Russian and expecting a beer to live up to a Big Lebowski reference is maybe asking too much.

Tap at Churchkey for Shorts Tap Takeover. I had to be told this was a White Russian boutique beer since I drink White Russians all the time and found no similarities. The pour is a clear ruby red with a scant, white head. Nose, I guess, could be construed as White Russian: creamy with cinnamon spice and alcohol. Taste is ashy and coffee astringent like cheap hotel coffee. In the finish you get some of that classic, alien-derived Shorts’ proprietary wild bacterial infection that comes across as metals, vomit, infected athlete’s foot, dirty sweat. Definitely gross and a total mess.

Enjoyed this at the Shorts Tap Takeover during SAVOR Week at Church Key. IT does indeed taste similar to Southern Tier Creme Brulle but not as viscous and sweet. It seemed to gain complexity throughout the taste and finished well with more additional notes of vanilla and sweetness.
