2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Timbo for sharing this beer.
This was the 3rd Shorts beer we had and was told that Shorts had a large amount of infected Uber Goobers. Unfortunately this beer was infected and I hate to say it, but a drain pour.....
Appearance: It poured a dark brown with very little head or lacing
Not sure if I should even rate this, but I hope to try another one and rerate it. The other Shorts beers were great, looking forward to trying more.

Poured an opaque black color with a small tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, roast, cocoa, oats, and vanilla bean. Taste of rolled oats, roasted malts, chocolate, smoke, nuts, and caramel. This was quite nutty.

Draft. What can i say this is a treat. Mahogany body with a tan head. Chocolate and peanut character, chewy and full toasted malt character with a nutty accent and some sweet vanilla. Wow someone grab the cheesecake, iíll bring the goober.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of alcohol (surprisingly strong for 6.5%), chocolate, coffee, and peanuts. It pours a dark with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and light coffee. The finish has some light peanut flavors, a hint if fruit, and some noticeable alcohol. Itís hard to believe this is only 6.5%. Medium-full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler, courtesy of GodofThunder. Opaque black-brown with small tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt and Reeceís. Smooth, silky mouthfeelt has a slight oiliness. Not as much peanut butter in the flavors. Instead a nice roast comes out and almost tastes like a coffee stout. Not bad!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle given to me by a friend. In fact, he gave me five because he didnít care for it. Pours black with a thin tan head. To my knowledge thereís no coffee in this beer, but it has that green bell note in the nose that a lot of coffee beers have. Also has peanut butter and chocolate notes. So far so good. Flavor starts with chocolate and peanut butter as expected, but finishes thin, tart and acidic. Infection is setting in. Not sure if this is common with this beer, or itís just a bad batch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler thanks to Hopdog. Nice deep dark brown almsot black with a thinning off beige head. Aroma is less on the PB than I had on tap at EBF a couple years ago- more earthy and dirt yeasty like this time with more phenols and only a slight chocolate pb going on. Roasted barley flavor charred black malt earthy dirty and some chocolate malt, phenolic dirty yeast, adn soem stale harsh pb and medicinal character. Somewhat prickly finish.

This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light chocolate, dark roasted malts and yumy peanuts too. Flavor was not so much reeses peanut butter cup but more of a butter finger with dark chocolate. Great miz of flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Thanks to my brother, as always, for picking up loads of Shortís in Michigan for me.
Pours a nice medium brown color with a bit of a light tan head. The nose really does bring some peanut character through with a bit of mild bread behind that. Taste is light peanut and not too much else. They hit the concept but it just doesnít do all that much for me. The feel is nice and a bit creamy, really bringing the flavor forward, which is good as there really isnít a terrible amount of flavor there. Drinks fairly well but is one dimensional.

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.
