An impenetrable dark black colored lager with an alluring tan lace. Enticing aromas of cocoa and burnt marshmallows lead into big flavors of heavy roast and tasty chocolate. The finish is clean and dry with a slight hop bitterness.

Tap @ Shorts: Jet black, solid & chunky khaki head on top. Aroma full of roasted barley & toasted grains with some very dry cocoa powder & cocoa dust with moderate char. Almost along the lines of a dry Irish stout. Taste is amplified a bit with a heavily roasted malt bill, nearly scorched malts with sharp lager yeast becoming apparent towards the back-end. Burnt barley, roasted grains, & charred rye bread all come to mind. Perhaps a bit lopsided in terms of roast vs. sweetness, but I enjoyed this one. Thinner mouth feel, smooth & clean finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a solid black with a minimal head. Smoky, burnt chocolate aroma aroma and taste. Just a nice mild smoky brew. Another solid black lager from Short’s.
