My love-hate relationship with Shorts Brewing is being won over today by my second excellent offering from their brewery. This porter pours a deep almost black mahogany with a nice tan head and substantial tan lacing. The aroma is overwhelmed by rich chocolate, sweet malt, and a touch of hops. The mouth is smooth and creamy. Fairly heavy for a porter but strictly in the best of ways. The flavor adds a significant amount of coffee and roast to the notes found in the nose. Their is surprisingly little alcohol bite given the abv. It is very drinkable and enjoyable. Shorts is still the quintessential hit or miss brewery for me but this is definitely a hit.
