4.19/5 rDev +7.2%
A- Pitch black and nice light brown head. Looks great! Moderate head retention, but great lacing.
S- Roasted Malts, Chocolate, Brown sugar and molasses. It smells awesome. A bit of a metallic note to it though.
T- Bitter-sweet and delicious, but has quite a nice hop balance for the style. Molasses definitely a big player. Nice roasted notes to it. Alcohol is well masked.
M-Moderate Carbonation and mouthfeel. Not too thin,but could be a bit more "beefy" IMO
O- I'd say this a damn good beer. Every shorts Ive had its damn good. The mouth feel is a bit lacking IMO, but none-the-less is still great. I would highly recommend.

4/5 rDev +2.3%
A- Pours a very deep dark brown, near black. Head is surprisingly light tan for such a dark murky beer. Nice sticky lacing everywhere I swirl my glass. Looks good
S- Cocoa and roasted malts heavy up front, a nice deep oat smell to follow, some alcohol and brown sugar sweetness at the end. Love the full frontal chocolate smack in the face.
T- Ohh, heavy on the cocoa up front with dark malts mixed in, some noticeable coffee in the middle. Has a very odd and distinctive burnt and bitter finish that is ...dry. After the burnt sensations, the cocoa and malts come back in play.
M- Full body, thick and creamy. Not much slipperiness in it but very drinkable, feels heavy, but not syrupy or smooth.
O- Good beer, fairly easy to drink. The ABV is pretty well balanced and doesn't hit jump right out at you, which could be sneaky if you don't know its 10% beer. Not a very complicated beer with the smells and taste, what you smell is what you get.Would recommend it as a good beer.

3.55/5 rDev -9.2%
12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a snifter
A - This beer is jet black with less than an inch of cocoa colored head.
S - I can smell the cocoa. It blends well with the roasted malt aromas.
T - I get some almost burnt flavors. The cocoa comes through, but the finish is kind of like burnt toast.
M - Full
O - I was hoping this beer would be better. The burnt flavor is off putting.
