12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottle generously provided as an extra by normyk, thanks Rob!
A - Although blended with a stout, I had expectations of this beer being lighter in color, but nope, pretty damn dark with only slight brown highlights to it. Builds about 2-fingers worth of head at its peak. Retention is fairly low as it fizzles out quickly. Little to no lacing.
S - The smell is actually pretty enticing, full of strawberry and a faint peanut nose to it. Also getting a smokiness similar to what was in Short's S'mores stout, but not to as great an extent. Smell is a little sour too which is a bit off-putting..
T - Excitedly, I take my first sip and... oh my goodness, what the hell happened to this beer. It's deathly sour and is like drinking a vile concoction of sea water and vinegar. Maybe a bit of cherry and raspberry poke through, and in the finish I'm getting the peanuts a little, but this beer is obviously off. Given the smell and taste, I'm not so sure my S'mores stout wasn't a little infected as well given what I've heard about Short's QC. I can't even get through half a bottle of this, but sadly it goes down the drain.
M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Long, long lasting bitterness in this one, unfortunately.
D - Drinkability is abysmal. In paper this beer had a lot of promise and I was greatly looking forward to it, but another let-down from Short's. A month ago I would've been excited to try anything these creative brewers put out, but now I'm extremely hesitant. It's a shame really, these guys are really trying to innovate.

Thanks to Adam for sharing a few of these with me over the years.
Dark brown appearance with hints of crimson and approx. 1/4" of tan head. Aroma = peanut butter sandwich. perhaps a slight vegetal note, but I haven't had any truly negative experiences with this beer. Flavor is nutty, earthy. Roasted peanuts with a sweet, sugary, jam character. PB&J in a glass, as advertised. Really fun to try and best in small doses.
