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.

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.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 7/2/2011. Pours an almost pitch black hazy dark brown color with a nice 2 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big plum, chocolate, peppercorn, caramel, molasses, herbal, floral, roasted malt, toast, bread, and earthy spiciness. Very nice and unique aromas; with good balance and complexity. Taste of big chocolate, roasted malt, toast, pepper, biscuit, caramel, raisin, floral, plum, herbal, and earthy spices. Fair amount of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, pepper, toast, dark fruit, caramel, and herbal spiciness. Great balance and complexity of flavors; very pleasant and enjoyable, given the unique ingredients used. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish noticed. Overall this is a great Baltic porter! Nice robust and balanced flavors, with good complexity; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one, and I am glad I got a chance to try it.
