• The intrinsic celebration of beer and the giant red berry cloaked within piper nigrum, apium graveolens dulce, armoracia rusticana, and anethum graveolens
• Beer Type: Specialty Beer fermented with Roma tomatoes and spiced with tellicherry peppercorns, celery seed, fresh horseradish and dill

Bloody Beer is a lighter bodied beer with an appealing ruby red glow. Fermented with Roma tomatoes, and spiced with dill, horseradish, peppercorns and celery seed, a prominent aroma of spicy tomato juice emits from the beer. The intense initial tomato flavor is followed by a lingering finish that allows each additional ingredient a chance to resonate on the palate. When slightly warm, this 2009 Great American Beer Festival silver medal winner’s magnitude of flavors can be fully appreciated.

Bloody Beer was beer number 8 of 13 from our 2007 Imperial Beer Series and it was the 290 batch of beer ever brewed at Short’s.

Bottle. Hazy amber coloured with a small off white head. Aroma of dill, tomatoes and celery. Flavour of caramel, tomatoes, dill and hops with notes of pepper and horse radish. Peppery finish.

Shorts smagning med klubben. Uklar orange med lille råhvidt skum. Det minder lidt om en bloody Mary. Tomatjuice m. tabasco, peber som stikker på tungen. Er blød og fyldig, godt krydret med medium karbonering.

Shorts tasting with The Club +a few. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Smells of hops with peppers. Quite dry with peppary aromas and some tomatoes. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Long bitter finish with a hint of vegetables. Surprisingly good.

Bottle at home. Clear dark amber - white head. Peppery, black pepper, tomato - sharp tomato bitterness, spicy, nice malty, vegetables. Lots of tomato in the finish.

Muddy amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by celery, with celery-like herbal notes, a little pepper and more celery. Flavour is spicy and herbal, but any beer characteristics are lost in celery.

Bottle @ Kolding Shorts Tasting, 18.09.08.
Pours a great, dark golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has dill, chili and tomato. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light tomato and very spicy. Not fantastic.

Bottle. [Drikkeriget Grand Shorts Imperial Series tasting, thanks to Jeppe for another great session] This was by fare the strangest of the Imperial Series. A bloody Mary was not was I expected, but that is what’s best described this beer. Thought the pepper was a bit too much with an unpleasant burning feeling. Average off-white fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Muddy yellow – copper like color. Aroma of heavy pepper, tomato, dill, celery root, horse radish. What an explosion of strange and unusual notes in a beer. Quite overwhelming. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and burning texture. Heavy sweet flavor with moderated bitterness. Lingering pepper burning Bloody Mary finish. Took me by surprise and unfortunately not to my liking.

Enjoyed in our hotel room for GABF 2007; thanks to awaisanen and his Michigan connections. We enjoyed this one morning (seemed appropriate) late in the weekend (Saturday, I think), when none of us really wanted to get up or drink much more. Good hair of the dog for the occasion. Smells like celery, dill, parsley, allspice, all over bloody mary mix. Nice thin foam head that regenerates continually. Flavor was mostly very spicy over a lightly vegetal base: pepper, salt, ginger, with some dark yeast right before the finish. The finish is when the tomato starts to come out, but it’s not overpowering (which was my fear at first, since I’m not a huge tomato fan). Andy hit the nail on the head when he picked out horseradish (or wasabi) in the finish, with a pistachio nuttiness too. Turned out to be a great morning beer. A unique experience, and it added to my love of Shorts at the fest.

What a name for a beer... going to the extremes also in the taste... I dont thionk I ever had a beer that tasted like this.. well here goes. Pours a blurry brown/orange body with a golden white head. The nose is a bit sour but with clear notes of freshly cutted meat and peeled tomatoes from a tin-can. The taste miss Bloody Mary meets mr. Malt - I taste peppercorns, tomatoesWorchester (english-souce), cloves and some pickle. - I would have loved if the taste had been even more extreme. The palate was fantastic and very aromatic and seasoned and tickeling on your tounge.

Bottle shared by eclectic at BCTC. Thanks Kevin! Nose is oregano, tomatoes, pepper, dill, and malt. Flavor had a lot pepper, more oregano, tomatoes, and hops. As similar as this was to the Mama Mia Pizza beer in terms of ingredients, this was much better put together and I actually enjoyed it. Not sure how much I could drink at a time, but definitely a worthy craft beer.
