Looks good, nice fluffy head atop a dark nice body.
Smell is -uh-oh- sour, peanut hints, roast, infection. Ugh. I had an Uber Goober with this same problem and one w/o. This will be a drainpour.
Taste is dominated by a sharp, sour infected metallic taste. Bit of nuts and roast.
Mouthfeel is OK but a bit too carbed, probably due to the infection.
Drainpour. Could be a great Irish stout, but this bottle is infected and sour and just bad. These Shorts releases have been hit or miss due to the infections, hope they take care of them next time!
While I had a poor experience with this beer, I am thoroughly impressed with Shorts Brewing's response to these QC issues. I am not telling anyone that this beer is horrible as much as this batch had it's share of problems. I look forward to another batch and an updated review. Thanks to Shorts for reaching out and offering to make this right - classy act for sure!

Nitro pour at Brickhouse BBQ.
A. Pours a smooth black with a creamy light tan head.
S. Mild roast, sweet cocoa, toasted bread.
T. Lightly charred grain, a bit nutty, baker's chocolate. Dry to style but not watery.
M. Between light and medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.
O. Not really any noticeable flaws here. Pretty spot on for the style.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/25/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light roast, light smoke, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark roasted malt flavors; with big robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dry stout! All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
