Why is Shorts such a hit or miss brewery? I never know if I'm getting an all star or a dud. This one lies somewhere in the middle. The appearance is an appealing near black with a thick tan head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is a bitter blend of hops and dark roast coffee, but unfortunately neither seem particularly fresh. The mouthfeel is rather light for the style, closer to a porter than a black ipa. The flavor is pleasantly bitter with heaps of hops giving way to an abundance of bitter coffee. This ale is good but by no means anything outstanding. If you don't like bitter, don't even try.

This beer was painful to drink very strong bitter tastes, unpleasant aftertaste with notes of coffee - not a coffee drinker. Very dark in color. Very strong coffee flavors and burnt beans tasted. Dark roast beer. Low malt beer. I would not recommend this beer - shorts has many better

Very strong coffee aroma and taste. Strong bitterness leaves unpleasant after taste. Not very enjoyable for someone that prefers lighter beers. Hard to drink more than a taste. Also has a burnt after taste with a maltiness that is unrounded. Not a fan, an acquired taste for sure

This beer is painful to drink. It has a very hoppy scents and flavor and attempts to include a coffee flavor as well. The mixture leads to an uncomfortable flavor of bitterness. Flavors of burnt beans and nature. A little to strong for my palate, but for those looking for a challenge. This would be a good one.

Very dark beer that smells like coffee and nature. Once you take a sip you will get an overwhelming taste of coffee. It is a very thick beer and it will leave a very strong after taste in your mouth. Not my favorite beer at all. I really don't enjoy it
