To start off, I do not like very many porters. Prior to having this one, I tried the Short's Cup of Joe and only made it two sips into it.

I was saddened to read that this beer is no longer being brewed as I finally found one I like.

It was a nice dark brown color when being poured into a pint class with a nice coffee aroma. It went down easy for a porter, an enjoyable brew. My liver is happy that I only had one and that it is discontinued because I could definitely drink more of these.

12oz, bottled 12/18/12, poured into a nonic.

a - pours a viscous dark brown, nearly black. gave me a finger or so of dense, creamy, light brown head that took some time calming down. what i'm left with is a thin film and a few thick rings of lacing in the glass.

s - roasted malt, tart dark cherry, cola, hint of marshmallow, and that weird earthiness that all short's beers have.

t - heavy on the roasted malt character with some burnt malt in the background. notes of chocolate and spice. has the short's signature earthy bitterness and finishes a little on the boozy side.

m - full bodied and quite sticky. medium carbonation with a medium co2 profile.

o - interesting beer and enjoyable, but not what i look for in an english porter (or any other porter for that matter). too much focus on the roasted flavors not enough else going on for depth. also, the higher abv makes this a one and done for the night beer.
