Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a small foamy had. Aroma of light roasted malt with some spices and beets notes. Taste is not as eclectic as expected with some roasted malt notes with beet notes being clearly identifiable (even though I am aware that there are no actual beets in this beer as far as I know). Body is light with medium carbonation. Not bad but somewhat bland and not particularly enjoyable.

Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.

This one didn't come togther for me; it felt odd, for odd's sake with lots of competing flavors and aromas. The nose and taste were dominated by roasted malt, plums, herbal notes, spice and molassas. I liked that for this colab, they swung for the fences, but even Babe Ruth struck out.

Pours jet black with a thin head.

Smells like flat, warm root beer mixed with a touch of red wine. Not so appealing. The nice thing is the aroma isn't too strong.

Wow...tart expired fruit, gravel and dirt, cola, grass. This is bad.

Mouthfeel a little thin.

3.8/10

Excited to have a Shorts/DFH/FFF collaboration beer! Poured into a pint glass

A: Aggressive pour yields 1/2 finger of brown head with poor retention - better retention please. Nearly opaque DARK brown.
S: Clean roasted grain, slight fruity sweet edge. Interesting, but not terribly complex.
T: Interesting. Fruity, a bit tart and slightly wild. Improves with warmth/time and grows on me. Dark chocolate notes in aftertaste. Quite nice and unique. Slight cough syrup flavor is a negative. A bit medicinally bitter, like aspirin.
M: Opens and closes dry. A bit tart or wild, brett? A tad thin.
O: Enjoyable. I wouldn't buy 6, but I might order a second. Proof that a collaboration between three great brewers doesn't always produce beer that is equal to or 3x greater than those produced by the brewers working alone.

The cornholio is a good beer....got to try thank to my bro-in-law friend....Bill....Thanks Bill!!! The beer poured a dark opaque with thin offwhite head that is not leaving much lace. A nice roast scent. The taste is what is interesting....the body is light with smooth carbonation. There is a dark fruit hoppyness at the start and then a mild malt/roast finish. Overall it is a tasty beer and the 7%abv is un-noticable....which means danger.
