Pours black w tan head, nice looking beer. Strong coffee scent. Taste is coffee, although not as strong as expected, roasty and pretty sweet. Very smooth and syrupy.

Bottle. Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Full body with a creamy texture and a bit of alcohol warmth. Sweet with undertones of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Nice flavor of coffee without overpowering the beer. Great job Short’s!

Clownoisseur (339) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2015
2014 bottle. Pours dark brown, near black, with a 2 finger mocha head that slowly recedes to a nice cap over the beer. Aromas are loaded with fresh coffee grounds, cocoa powder, chocolate mousse, vanilla and lightly roasted almonds. Taste is packed with coffee, espresso, Irish creme and cocoa. Great counterbalance between the sweet creamy mouthfeel and the dry cocoa. Really compliments each other. Nice chocolate notes shine through this beer...never getting too chewy with the medium carbonation helping push the flavors. A nice moderate coffee bitterness spikes the finish as it lingers with some Hersey’s Kiss milk chocolate goodness. Short’s really raised the bar with this year’s version. Very well done and slightly under-rated beer!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Glorious dark poor with a perfect tan head. Aroma is coffee, straight coffee homey. Taste is more coffee, chocolate and tobacco. Palate is thick. One of my favorite stouts.

Mr_Abner (97) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with only the slightest head ringing the glass. Minimal carbonation here. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts. Taste is extremely well-balanced: Coffee, creamy, and malty. A coffee bitterness lingers. Delicious. I need more...

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 An excellent coffee beer from Shorts. Beautiful tan brown with a frothy mocha head. The nose is freshly brewed coffee. Body and mouthfeel satisfying without being overly thick or syrupy. Great breakfast time beer or one for when you are flagging during a session.

mintzmeet (306) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Its delicious. super rich. There is a depth to the coffee flavor, out actually tastes like I will find bits of grounds in the bottom. Creamy in texture but not flavor.

Awesome beer! Flavors of rich coffee, cream, dark cocoa, molasses, toasted malts and notes of dark fruits. Perfect creamy feel. Heavy, but appropriately so.

Bottle from a trade with CBOK. Thanks! Pours a muddy brown with a micha thin head. No lacing. Aroma is solid with cocoa, Nequick, vanilla, heavy cream, sugar lactose, and coffee. I was surprised that it didn’t taste more coffee flavored but that was fine. The balance of the coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and vanilla cream were perfect. Also a slight caramel flavor as well. Texture is buttery, creamy, and slick. Medium to full body, soft carb. Finish is dark chocolate, coffee, and lactose. So damn good.
