A. Pitch black with a thin layer of cocoa head.
S. incredible floral hop aroma, some citrus, alcohol, faint anise.
T. Big chewy mouthfeel. Heavy malts blend with piney and citrus hops to create a very solid blend of black ale and an ipa. Bitter and drying finish.
O. Very interesting concoction from shorts that is a must try if you can get your Hands on one.

I've long been a doubter of Shorts Brewing but having tried this offering, I'm a step closer to being a believer. This ale pours a deep rich black (almost stout like) with a very slight tan head and substantial lacing. The nose is perplexing. There are substantial hop notes with a good deal of pine and grass along side those of coffee and carmely roasted malts. Unfortunately there is also something slightly off and skunky in nature. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Medium bodied with a nice coating feel. It is actually lighter than I would have guessed it to be. The flavors mirror the nose. With a bitter piney hoppiness upfront followed by a deep coffee/chocolaty malty sweetness. This is damn good and one of the best black ipas I've had. Maybe there is hope for Shorts yet.

A - Pours an impenetrable black with a finger and a half of mocha head. Left no lacing.
S - Dark roasted malts and coffee, followed by a small amouunt of citrus and pineapple.
T - Moderates between roasted and toasted malts along with mango and pineapple. Throws some banana into the mix as well.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O - Overall, It was definitely good, although it was far more like a stout than an IPA. Needs more balance.
