3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a small, dissipating beige head. Very odd but interesting aroma, peanut not so much as overripe raisins. Medium body, very rustic tart raisins and a litlte wood. Again I donít pick up any peanut whatsoever - more tart cherries. No real bitterness. An interesting infection this time from Shorts! 030612

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Originally reviewed: 2/15/11. Poured into a pint glass. Iím a little hesitant with this one. The Shortís beers Iíve had have been hit or miss. The last one, PB & J, was an infected, vinegary mess. It didnít even warrant a review. So Iím crossing my fingers on this one.
The pour doesnít conjure up any confidence on my end. A deep dark black, but not even the slightest bit of head or lace. Nothing. This could be motor oil for all I know. The nose is eerily similar to the last peanut butter beer of theirs I tried, and we know how that turned out. Mild cocoa, jam, and PB. Thereís a definitive tart presence that is a little off-putting.
The body is moderately thick with carbonation spritzing it up midway through, then smooths out on the finish. Mild cocoa, coffee char, and the faintest of nuttiness. Sourness is ever-present. Eh. I donít like this. Maybe Iím a little gun-shy with these guys now, but this could have been so much better. Out she goes. Wonít have this again.

Michigan Winter Beer Festival. This beer REALLY tastes like peanuts and is one of the beers I had at the festival that really stood out to me. It wasnít the BEST beer Iíve had, but itís certainly a good beer and the flavor is so interesting I consider it a must-try.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Bottle. Pours a deep brown with almost no head. If only the taste completely lived up to aroma of chocolate and tons of roasted peanut. The flavor of the peanut is definitely there and I get a little bit of the chocolate as well, just not as much as I was expecting. This is an older bottle and as something that I have had in the past it seems like it has lost a little something over time. Not quite to the point of being infected as so many reviews on here mention, but maybe heading that way. In the end I still enjoyed it and will definitely buy again when the next batch comes out.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of odd rubber, alcohol, anise, medicinal and funky malt smells with perhaps a hint of peanuts, sweetness and more licorice. Medium-bodied; Assertive odd funky malt flavours at first with a taste of balloons (inflating), alcohol, nuts, resin and some odd funk. Aftertaste shows some odd flavours still, with a touch of anise and other spices. Overall, easily the worst from Shortís that iíve had, and although not a horrible beer, one that I will not tell others to buy nor drink. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 16-January-2011 for US$2.59 sampled at home in Washington on 27-November-2011.
