3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Deep nut-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, beige head. Dark caramel aroma, some sweet milky chocolate, mild roasted, some fruity hops, some fruity blackberry. Medium carbonation, lovely malty dry and quite creamy palate. Flavour is elegant, mild metallic tartness at first, then fat roasty maltiness, coffee, pine. Long, lingering, seriously dry malty finish. Extremely good for a schwarzbier.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by BenC - Pours chocolatey brown with a thin tan head. Smells like rye bread and chocolate, lightly toasted. Tastes roughly the same, with a dry, ashy finish. Mixes some dry stout characteristics in there--nice. Thinner body, but it works. Smooth, very nice. Probably my favorite Shorts beer so far!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin feel to it as it pours. A thin film of tan head sits on the surface. Aromas are weak... a faint whiff of chocolate and earth is about all I pick up. Flavor is a little more interesting... chocolate and caramel malts play off each other nicely with just a hint of topsoil after a rain or something poetic like that. It has a kind of creaminess to it (mouthfeel and maybe even a little in the flavor) and ends in a coffee/peat-like bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter.
Pours a very dark brown with a single-finger tan head that sticks around for a bit before fading and leaving a bit of light lacing. The nose has a bit of light roast and a bit of dark fruit as well. Mild anise character. The flavor has a moderate amount of roast along with some sweet malt. Dark fruit and cherry come through a bit, along with some slight black licorice. There is a bit of a cardboard character in the finish as it warms, however. Medium body and lightly sweet throughout. Pretty decent.
Serving type: on-tap
