big thanks to CraftyBastard for the bottle, enjoyed from a batch 002 TB oversized snifter.

a - brew pours cloudy brown that settles in the glass as opaque dark brown with almost purple highlights. frothy cream colored head didn't hang but left streaks of lace on the glass.

s - nose is as advertised, brown ale with maple syrup. some sweet malts give hints of nuts, but not specifically pecan.

t/m/o - the first thing that jumps out is the body. fairly full bodied while having a very silky feel. juice like. flavor is very sweet raisin, prune, brown sugar with yes...pecan. super sweet, not boozy aside from the sweetness. yet another interesting beer from shorts. these are all fun to try but there are only a handful of shorts brews that i would want a 6'er of and this one fits the one and done category.

A - Pours a cloudy dark brown with a half-finger tan head. The head dissapates extremely quickly leaving lots of spotty lacing.

S - Aromas of maple syrup, pecans, dark fruits, and booze.

T - The flavor starts with maple syrup and candied pecans. Dark fruits, nutmeg, & vanilla appear midpalate. There is some booziness and piney hoppiness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft syrupy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - Another solid beer from Short's. The booziness is a tad strong and this could good be great with some aging.
