I love Shorts beer, but this one is their worst. Hard to choke down this bag of bitter coffee beans.

Midnight brown with a medium brown crown and thick ass lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark roasted malts and some sweetness and acidity to boot. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, lactose and something sour. Finishes up a cross between sweet and acidic.

Pours inky black with one finger of dark tan coffee brown head. Has an intense coffee roast to the nose with notes of mocha and caramel. Super coffee character, some fruit skins and an acidic roast character. Light body with a noticeable acidity.

Thanks to afdempse for sharing this great beer.
A: Deep black, beige head, big lacing
S: Coffee! Seriously...If you can get past the intense aromas of fresh roasting coffee, you may find some roasted malt scents.
T: Again, roasted coffee. Fresh and delicious. What this beer lacks in complexity it makes up for by being simply delicious. You must love coffee to thoroughly enjoy this beer.
M: Somewhat thin feel, great crisp carbonation.
D: Highly recommended. I could have a few of these.

Bottle, thanks Justin! Black with a small ring of tan lace. Nose is heavy coffee grounds, some bakers chocolate, pepper, cedar, roasted malts. Similar flavor, tastes kinda like watered down coffee with a couple spoonfuls of sugar. A little cream in the finish. One of the better Shorts experiences of recent memory though mainly because this was not infected.

Draft to oversized snifter. Looks good; pitch black with low carbonation and nice lacing. Smells great! One of the best coffee shouts I’ve ever smelled. Tastes pretty good, but not as good as it smells. Mouthfeel is decent. Pretty good, but I wish the taste was as good as the smell.

Dissapointing for me. Taste is coffee grounds and milk. The base beer is mostly hidden but the strong spent coffee taste. Medium sweet and silky palate but the flavor is off.

And........ This is a cup of coffee beer. Smells like a cup of coffee and tastes like a too. A gimmick that works well but still a gimmick

Pours russet brown-black into snifter. Smells of espresso, spent grain, oats and molasses. Tastes the same. Damn good.

12oz bottle shared by wesirs. Dark pour with some roasted coffee and some mild smoke. Taste was bitter coffee followed by a tangy sourness unfortunately. This would have been great.
