look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pitch black with a mocha head that quickly dissipates to a fine ring around a snifter. Some decent spotty lace clings after each drink.

S - Malts, chocolate, hops present, caramel, toasted nuts, coffee.

T - Malt forward - dark / bitter chocolate, caramel. Malts followed by a prominent amount of hops, and finishes very dry and bitter. Some anise flavors faint in the back end. Moutfeel is chewy and syrupy.

O - Another solid brew from Shorts. This drinks more like a black IPA to me rather than an RIS, but a very nice beer nonetheless

Had on tap from Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

A-Black as night. Nice mud colored head that dissipates into nothingness leaving just a sticky resin lacing on the side of the glass.

S-A bit of something metallic here. You get a bunch of smokey malt notes with a surprising hop nose.

T-A bit over hopped for my preference. There is the usual suspects are here: the chocolate, the coffee, the malt. They're all sitting way at the back of the bus compared to how hopped the beer is.

M-Strongest suit of the beer. Has that nice, thick, chewy body that Short's nails so well.

O-Decent but not for those that like hopped stouts.

Serving type: on-tap
