4.08/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Short's in Bellaire.

AP - Dark Stout with A thin head that disapates quickly after the 1st or second taste and leaves thin lacing.

AR - Bready malt aroma with chocolate coffee undertones.

T - A sweet chocolate start that gives way to slightly oatmeal/pecan finish.

MF - Thin start that does not taste of a dark heavy. Slighty papery.

D - A well done dessert stout that is not over the top. I could drink two and not tire of it.

Serving type: on-tap

3.95/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Tulip from a 4-day old Growler that was unopened. Part of a three growler tasting between friends during the Sugar Bowl. (Go Blue)

A - Very dark brown / black color pour, roughly a finger of head, minimal lacing.

S - Pecans and Chocolate come through with a hint of Carmel, roasted malts and possibly dark fruits.

T - Very good, had a chocolate taste with pecans up front with a nice and clean roasted malts/carmel finish. The alcohol was masked pretty well.

M - Low carbonation, relatively light for a stout.

D - This was a very good desert beer, my fiance enjoyed it a little more than I did but it was 2nd out of the three. This had a little more drinkability where I wouldnt have to stop at one but certainly too sweet for a session. Very interesting beer from Shorts!
