Aorta Ale (Double Red Ale) | Short's Brewing Company
Short's Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
Style: American Amber / Red Ale
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%
Notes / Commercial Description:
A double red ale that seems to indicate an intensity of flavor simply by it’s dark reddish brown appearance. Subtle aromas of candy, brown sugar, and toasted malt seem reluctantly released from the depths of this full bodied beast. Raisins, figs, and burnt caramel are among some of the sweeter flavors up front, before giving way to a roasted cocoa like bitterness that becomes magnified by high alpha hops. Considering the initial overall sweetness, it’s a heightened bitterness that dominates the finish.
