4.34/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pitch black not even much brown around the edges. a finger or so of a tan head with excellent retention, leaving a entire lacing behind. completely opaque

Smell: sweet chocolate, and a lighter noticeably dry roasty malts. not super complex but very pleasant

Taste: again with a sweet chocolate that is short lived. burnt malts, but not overly acrid. a slight hint of wheat is in there but not overly discernible. also small amount of bittering hops

Mouthfeel: medium body. creamy feel but ends extremely dry. lightened up by the wheat, when i think it could be a bit heavier.

Overall: extremely good character and smooth transitions in this beer. it is well balanced and well brewed. the wheat doesn't add much to the taste but lightens up the mouthfeel a bit. a great example of a robust porter and a good start to Shorts v4.0

Serving type: bottle
