3.95/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured absolutely pitch black, as dark as the night. I expected to see some hints of Soft Parade, but this is all stout. Completely opaque, no edges, no light peeking through at all. The head was big and frothy at first, about two fingers. It receded a bit but stuck around for the ride.

Smell: It really does smell like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Roasted malts play in with the peanuts. Follow by the fruits, specifically strawberry and raspberry.

Taste: Similar to the smell, but the berries come in to play first. The berries are tangy and almost a bit sour. The peanuts and roasted malts come in after that. I actually expected the fruit here to be a bit more subtle. On the finish there is a trace of biting citrus bitterness. All the flavors are thoroughly enjoyable, but it just doesn't seem to be the best of marriages. Instead of flowing together it seems like they fight each other a bit.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied. Sharp, tingling carbonation that seems off for a stout. It can probably be chalked up to the Soft Parade blended in.

Drinkability: One of, if not thee, most interesting beer I've had yet. It's quite tasty, but as I mentioned before the combination of all these flavors is a bit rough. It's just a little too busy and sweet.

Overall I've found you never know quite what to expect when you try a beer from Short's. It's best to leave any preconceptions at the door. I do wish I would have picked up more of this when it was available. It's like nothing else out there.
