Bottle. Molasses, dark fruit, chocolate aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Ashy malt, chocolate, fruity flavor with a roasty bitterness. Light to medium body, dry finish. Finally! A Shorts that didn’t have to go down the drain.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is a deep, dark shade of brown with a large beige head that leaves copious lacing on the snifter.
The aroma is slightly sweet, bready, and lightly roasty.
The flavor is malt forward with a light roast character. Each sip brings a subtle sweetness, with hints of dark fruit. A decent beer, and one I’d try again.
Serving type: on-tap

Roasted caramel with malted coffee undertones. Pours black with minimal head. Lively mouthfeel with heavy coffee and chocolate maltyness. Slight aftertaste of dry coffee malt. Not at all bad.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to mibirder. Black witha small-medium light brown head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel, vanilla, coconut; classic bourbon aged beer aroma. Taste is more of the same, medium sweet, with a mild-medium roasted bitterness. Finish is dry with lingering bourbon. Soft-moderate carbonation, medium body. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brian - thanks! Black pour with a quickly fading fizzle of a tan head. Aroma is roast, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of nuts like a brown ale. Taste has a nice roasted character with chocolate, hop bitterness, and darker raisin notes into the finish. Airy and coating mouthfeel. This is a great beer.
