Nice to drink, though not among the better brown ales I’ve tried. Not one of Shorts’ top brews.

Dark Brown, Surprising Small Head that dissipated almost immediately, leaving no lacing. Toasted, Chocolate, just a light sign of hops on the back end. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Kind of a ruddy brown and not much life in the glass. Sweet on the palate and a little sticky. Not enough balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is exactly what you’d expect, a dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and rich caramel malts. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate and light coffee flavors. I generally don’t care for coffee flavors, but they are pretty subtle in this one. Not my favorite, but I don’t hate it.

Lovely color is amplified by the smooth taste and sweet finish. A delightfully night cap after a hearty meal.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyable brown ale but lacking in some areas, still easy to put a few down. Pours brown with a deep red tint to it and a cream colored head. Smells is mild molasses, but that’s about it. Taste is a little sweet sugar, decent malt profile, a little chocolate, but no detection of hops anywhere. Decent but not my favorite brown ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours medium brown and has a mild toasted malt aroma. It’s sweet with caramel and a bit of hops bitterness. I know this all sounds like a pretty standard brown ale and that’s because to me it is. Serviceable but nothing stands out.
