look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle courtesy of TheSevenDuffs. Glad to try this off kilter beer! No date on the bottle served between 6-8C into a tulip.

A: A hard pour produces minimal brown head with next to no retention and almost zero lacing. A thick stout is clearly on the prowl here though with an opaque body.
S: Thick dark roasted notes with molasses, an oily peanut butter like aroma comes about too. An odd mix.
T: More of the same on the palate. Lots of roasty notes, with an oily peanut that lingers and keeps some of the sweetness back. Personally the two flavours don't pair very well, although they do come across at two different times...
M: Oily, very low carbonation. Cloying at first yet finishes oily and peanuty.
O: Glad I've tried this concoction... Not sure I am going to be looking for this one ever again except to foist on others. Nevertheless, nice try at it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the faintest bit of lighter colored hints when held to a light source and a two finger dark chocolate mocha brown head that immediately disappears leaving no lacing behind.

Slightly roasted dark malt aroma with plenty of sweet and bitter dark chocolate, oatmeal, nut and licorice. It smells pretty sweet but there is an underlying roasted peanut scent.

Lots of tight carbonation up front and it is slightly infected/oxidizes with lots of sweetness and slight tart flavor. There are some nice silky chocolate notes that are slightly roasted. Prominent oatmeal presence along with some toffee and licorice and a smooth slightly creamy roasted peanut favor.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark brown almost black color. Opaque and with just a spot of a lacing.

Smell peanut butter and chocolate

Taste: starts off with dark malts and some chocolate but quickly becomes straight peanut butter

Mouthfeel: fairly light. Lingering peanut butter taste

Overall: a very interesting beer. I was surprised at the power of the peanut butter. Not for everyone but certainly interesting. I don't think I'd reach for one very often

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Very uneventful pour. An aggressive pour yields an eighth inch tan head which lasts for all of 7 seconds. A tiny ring around the rim stays for a few minutes, but then this is just a slick reddish black.

S - Earthy, hearty peanuts. The peanut is huge in the nose and sticks around for the entire beer. This smells like I just opened up a jar of peanut butter. Incredible that they could replicate that. That said, it's very one-note and I'm having a very hard time picking anything else up in the smell. There is a faint chocolate and roasted malt off in the distance.

T - The flavors have a quick and noticeable progression with each sip. First, loads of roasted malt, brown sugar, milk chocolate, maple. The middle showcases the oatmeal nicely, it really tastes like a bowl of oatmeal with some of that brown sugar riding alongside it. The peanuts begin to creep in right as the oatmeal flavor fades and you're left with a muted, peanut taste. The smell was true to a peanut's smell, but the taste isn't exactly true to a peanut's taste.

M - Though it's smooth, this finishes with a gritty, chewy character. Either the peanuts or the oatmeal is making me feel like I want to eat this instead of drink it. Mindfuck. Medium, mouth-coating body (no homo) with a refreshing amount of carbonation, well done.

D - This drinks pretty nicely, but definitely a beer I'd rather share as I don't think peanut is something I want in my everyday oatmeal stout. Fun to try, but not a beer I'd ever have back to back.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

a - pours just short of pitch black with a late-developing light brown head, little retention or lacing

s - smells a bit like a burnt Reese's peanut butter cup but with good fresh ground peanut butter like that which you can get at Whole Foods, dark chocolate and char

t - bitter dark chocolate and fresh roasted peanuts up front, more bitter chocolate and hints of day old coffee on the mid-palate, finish is a bit awkward bordering on unpleasant with a strong alcohol flavor mixed with bitter chocolate, strong bourbon notes linger on the palate, quite hot and tastes well beyond its 6.5% abv, still, there are really good aspects to the flavor but the booziness really overwhelms the finish

m - medium-bodied, low carbonation level, lots of alcohol warming, fairly dry finish

d - not very drinkable and definitely a sipper, alcohol is fairly harsh on the palate, one bottle is definitely enough

Very interesting beer in that Short's really did incorporate a peanut butter flavor and aroma, but the booziness and charred malt flavors keep it from being outstanding for me.

Tasting notes from 4/14/11
BA review #400. Poured in to Duvel tuip.

A - Poured dark black with a half finger of light brown head.

S - A good peanut nose up front followed up some typical stout smells - roasted malts, molasses and some noticeable alcohol.

T - Roasted malts, peanuts, some bitterness. The peanut flavour it not nearly as prominent as it was in the nose but is still evident. An interesting palate.

M - Medium body, lightly carbonated.

O - An interesting beer and one that I would drink again, but not one that I will go too far out of my way to hunt down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: dark brown/black, thin tan head, no lacing, opaque

S: the peanut comes through very strong up front, smells like peanut shell with rich notes of chocolate in the background. Very interesting.

T: the peanut doesn't translate to good flavor as the nose would suggest, what your left with a a somewhat bitter, almost acrid peanut quality with some dark chocolate backing it up. This beer isn't bad, but the nose promises something special and the taste unfortunately doesn't deliver

MF: thin body, medium carbonation

D: this beer is definitely worth a try, very unique, I think the base beer needs tweaking to better complement the peanut.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to my brother, as always, for picking up loads of Short's in Michigan for me.

Pours a nice medium brown color with a bit of a light tan head. The nose really does bring some peanut character through with a bit of mild bread behind that. Taste is light peanut and not too much else. They hit the concept but it just doesn't do all that much for me. The feel is nice and a bit creamy, really bringing the flavor forward, which is good as there really isn't a terrible amount of flavor there. Drinks fairly well but is one dimensional.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Aggressive pour yields a dusting of cocoa brown head with poor retention. Nearly pitch black liquid.
S: Roastiness, peanuts, toffee. Very pleasant. I'd like some more complexity please.
T: Rich chocolate, coffee, burnt bits, peanut, dark fruit, booze (too much booze). Decent, but not good/hearty enough stout to stand up to the peanut.
M: Heat shows up a bit too much to be pleasant. thick, chewy.
D: Way too hot for 6.5% I thought it was a RIS. One's enough for me in a lifetime.

This is a re-review. I have left the original review with the original scores at the bottom of this review.

Thanks to RBlaszak for sending this bottle my way. Unlike the last time I had this beer, this beer is not a gusher. It pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is pretty nice. I get some peanut butter and chocolate, as well as a little bit of roasted malt.

The flavor is more of the same. The nutty flavor from the peanut butter goes very well with the chocolate and roasted malt. There is also a little bit of fruity tartness in the flavor which may be early signs of infection - but I can't be sure because this is the only bottle I had.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5-2.5-2-3-2 = D+
Thanks to TasteTester for sending this beer to me.

The beer opens as a huge gusher. Looks like this one is infected.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a huge tan head. The aroma is peanuts with tartness. It also smells like the rum balls we used to make around Christmas time. The flavor starts off normal with some roasted malts and light peanuts before giving way to an extremely sour cherry character which is not appealing. Medium mouthfeel and prickly carbonation.

I want to like Shorts, but until they get their sanitation under control I won't be trading for any more of their beers.

Thanks to kdub87 for sending this bottle.

Pours deep, opaque brown into a pint glass, producing less than a finger of light tan head. This fades, leaving a little lacing.

After getting over my initial shock at the distinct peanut smell in this beer, I've decided I kind of like it. But only kind of. Definitely some nice, roasty malts going on as well, but I have a hard time picking out anything else.

The taste is a little more subtle than I expected, and the peanut flavors work better for me than the smell. Pleasant, roasted malts hit the tongue first, followed by some slightly bitter coffee notes. The peanuts come back around in the finish, with some dry, roasty flavors as well.

Full-bodied, but with a little less carbonation than I would like.

Drinkability is fine, but slightly hampered by the unusual flavor profile. I'm glad I had one, but I'd choose to follow it with a very different beer.

on tap at sunset tap and grille in boston during the post-EBF brunch

Pours a deep brown color with dark almost black hues, a thinner browned head retains with a collar of lacing around the glass.

A nice dose of nuttiness in the nose with softer chocolate and roasted malt. Scents of fresh cracked peanuts, like the ones you'd buy at a baseball game.

Wow. Peanut butter, and lots of it right up front. Hints of salt and a bit of roasted malts swirled with a note of caramelized sugar. This reminds me of a sweet peanut butter treat or cereal somewhat. A light touch of chocolate before finishing with more peanuts.

Fulled medium body, a bit creamy and smooth on the tongue. This was definitely a little out there, but I definitely enjoyed it. If they wanted to make a beer that tasted like straight up peanut butter, I think they pretty much nailed it.

Picked up a bottle of this at Tiffany's Wine and Spirit Shoppe in Kalamazoo, MI. While this is considered an oatmeal and peanut stout, I couldn't detect much of either in the aroma. The major presence in this beer is closer to that of a berry. It comes off the head quite powerfully and follows all the way through the drink. Drinkability is quite smooth, and (as the bottle claims) creamy. The carbonation level is nearly perfect for this beer, as it's presence is felt, but only enough to accompany this stroung stout. The flavor seems to almost drape over the sides of your tongue, covering it with a silky blanket of bubbles and beer. The finish is reminiscent of cranberries, with lingering bitter (though not entirely unpleasant) notes. As the beer begins to warm, a little more of the peanut/oatmeal flavor begins to blossom, especially in the aftertaste. This is definitely a very full-bodied brew though, and its 6.5 ABV does not do it justice.
Overall, this is a decent beer, and well worth the experience. Though I'm not sure if this is a beer that I would keep on hand (would not recommend more than one at a time), it WOULD be quite fun to have at a tasting, and a good example of a strong oatmeal stout.

Bottle from the new 6-pack seasonal. Tremendous roast aroma, black with fabulous brown head. Carbonation is right there. The taste is very sour, I cannot imagine that this is intentional. Yes, peanut, yes stout. But sour? Above average mouthfeel, but sour is one step backward for me, one big step backward for the masses.

On tap @ the Sunset Grill & Tap (Allston, MA) on 3/11/11. Served in a tulip glass.

Pours a dense black in the glass, topped with roughly a ½ finger of mocha colored head. This retains nicely, with some rich edges that leaves back some thick foamy swathes of lacing. The aroma smells like straight up roasted peanuts in the nose, which is quickly followed by notes of chocolate, burnt malt, caramel, and some light green floral hop character. A little bit of alcohol warmth is making its presence known as well.

The taste mirrors the nose, with a distinct roasted peanut flavor that melds well with the additional notes of dark malts and bitter hops that are present. Some sweeter flavors of chocolate and some lighter caramel and flaked oatmeal sweeten this up a bit. The finish is all peanuts, which lingers with some spicy alcohol notes. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a big sharp creaminess to it at first but despite the size of this, things seems a little flat and thin at times on the sides of the overall feel. I swear that they had this listed as over 9% ABV and this felt like it, with some sharp warmth (including the aforementioned sweetness and dry spiciness from the alcohol) really giving this a bit more attitude than it feels like it needs.

While there was certainly no shortage of Short's flair here (the peanut flavor really is well done) but the big alcohol presence and uneven feel kept this one from reaching its true potential. I could have used a little less Uber with my Goober here I think.

Re-rate, 1/17/11:
Appearance is a bit better than before if for no other reason than it wasn't crazy bubbly and clearly infected. There is very little head on this one with little retention or lacing.

Aroma is heavily roasted chocolate malts and peanut butter, basically the same as the original bottle.

The taste is where this one is clearly better. It's got light peanut butter notes up front with cocoa powder and black malts underneath. The oatmeal lends a silky smooth finish to things which is accentuated by the soft carbonation.

Overall, the body is a tad thin for me, almost watery.

Glad I got to try another bottle of this one. The taste is still not my favorite but obviously better than the infected bottle.

Original review, 1/20/10:
12oz bottle courtesy of hoppymeal.

Pours opaque black with a big, surprisingly bubbly (uh, oh) head that recedes quickly and leaves some good lacing.

The aroma is very good, lots of peanuts and dark chocolate malts. There's also a hefty amount of oatmeal and a bit of coffee even. Dark and roasty aroma.

Unfortunately, the taste is not very good. It's clearly infected with a huge lactic sourness right off the bat. There is maybe some peanuts and roasted malts in the background but the finish brings back a metallic tartness that dominates.

The mouthfeel is typical of an infected beer with a very bubbly feel that makes the body feel lighter than intended.

I guess I shouldn't be too surprised given some of the recent reviews on this one, but I still had my hopes up. This one is definitely infected with a sourness in the taste that seriously limits the drinkability. Need to find a growler of this one to get a better idea of the real intent.

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. No bottled date.

(A)- Pours a fairly thick dark black color that produced a quickly dissipating dark brown colored head.

(S)- Smells like the densest, most creamiest peanut butter ever! Has a subtle roastedness & molasses background, but is otherwise a cascade of creamy peanut butter. Weird for a beer, but just fantastic to sniff.

(T)- Again, like the smell: mountains of peanuts. The difference from the smell is that the roasted malts, molasses, & oatmeal are more present; creating a bit more balance. Has an almost potent raisin taste with the peanuts & molasses combined together.

(M)- A good carbonation level. The peanuts give off a very dry mouthfeel; combined with a bitterness from the roasted elements creates a rather "hot" feel. However, this does change for the better as it warms up, so dont drink this too cold!

(D)- Certainly an interesting idea for a stout. Most of it works well together, however, it does get a little disjointed. Sometimes it doesnt quite know what to taste like. Its sometimes boozy, or its really bitter, or its creamy. Certainly dynamic & unpredictable in character, but not necessarily what I would look for in a stout. Good, but it has it quirks. Not very drinkable either due to its "moody" character.

Acquired from GBVDave so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!
Poured in to a pint glass.

A: This beer pours a thick, rich opaque black. A ridiculous 4 finger of mocha colored head sits on top, with a relatively light pour. Head recedes slowly, and ends at about a 1/4 inch cap that retains nicely throughout. Spotty chunks of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Nose is very sweet! Tons of molasses and hints of caramel, light, mild roasted malts, hints of raisin and a touch of alcohol.

T: Taste rich and sweet at the forefront. Some mild caramel malts but a massive dose of molasses, much like in the nose. Some oat fills out the middle. Finish is slight alcohol, raisin, and a nutty, roastedness filters in at the end.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly creamy body.

D: Goes down alright, mild kick, somewhat balanced, pairs far better with food than on it's own. Not one to sit with for the night, but a beer to have with dinner.

12oz bottle provided by Jale, who was extra generous...Black pour, only a light tan head for a second then its gone...The aroma is the star of the show, its a dead on ringer for a creamy peanut butter pie. Lightly roasted, but incredibly creamy and smooth. Short's nailed it here...The taste loses a lot of the creamy peanut butter, still present but greatly subdued, disappointing. This is very roasted, but has a dominance of stale black coffee that is so strong that I don't even want to drink it. Monumental failure to me to not transition the aroma remotely in the taste.

Worth giving a shot if you like peanut butter, can't say anything wonderful things about how real the aroma is. Just doesn't carry over to the taste, which wouldn't be bad if was tastey itself, but its not.

A-Dark brown, light black shade to this poured with small light brown head.
S- i get a huge smell of roasted peanuts. there is a small hint of chocolate in the finish but mostly peanut, peanut oil.
T- this is a pretty interesting beer, the peanut flavor carries over, it has a peanut butter aftertaste but it does not stick around that long.There is a little chocolate up front with a good amount of malts and roast mixed in with the peanut flavor
M- Light, even for an oatmeal stout, has a decent amount of carbonation, a little bit of creaminess to the finish.

I like the shorts beers, they are not for everyone but i like it when breweries are trying different things. This would never be a go to for me but, decent little snack.

Poured from bottle into imperial pint glass. As dark as dark can be with very little head. A dark tan almost copper colored ring hugs the inside of the glass. The smell is what makes this beer in my opinion...its like chocolate covered peanuts roasted in coffee. Taste is not too far behind..malt and peanuts taking center stage as it coats the tongue adequately. No problem finishing the bottle, doesnt cloy or bore , but you better like peanuts !

A: Pour dark brown, almost black, with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly.

S: Dry and roasty, mild notes of peanuts. Hints of sweetness, just a touch of chocolate. Not a whole lot of aroma at all, to be honest.

T: Sweet roasted chocolate malt up front, with a dose of dry peanuts on the back end. Some residual sweetness on the finish with a dry and malty aftertaste. A bit astringent on the aftertaste, as well.

M: Moderate thickness, low hops, but the carbonation bites the tongue a bit.

D: This is actually pretty relaxing and drinkable. The recipe could use a bit of tweaking, but who else would even think to make a peanut-based Oatmeal Stout? If it was just a touch sweeter I'd like it more, I think.

A big thanks to Kevin (kzoobrew) for this beer that has been hanging around my refrigerator for some time. As a matter of fact it has made the trip from Michigan to California to Illinois. Here goes nothing! Cheers buddy.

Appearance – Pours a jet black into a generic tulip with almost no head and literally no lacing. No light gets through when held up to a lamp.

Smell – Honestly, peanuts. There are the traditional stout aromas such as burnt malts, slight coffee and chocolate, but honestly, I smell peanuts. Weird – Short’s having a beer smell like what it is suppose to be! I expected nothing less, haha.

Taste – Yum. Let me first say that after having a Blushing Monk earlier, this is a great night cap. Heavy roasted peanuts up front, burnt malts, bittersweet chocolate, and more peanuts. Short’s yet again scores high points for getting the flavor profile correct in what they were trying to do.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied (almost light/medium), decent carbonation.

Overall – Very interesting beer. Some of Short’s beers don’t work…I think this one does. While I wouldn’t grab a six pack of it in the future, it actually was better than I was expecting and as stated was a great way to cap the night after having such a sweet fruit beer. Tasty.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Thanks to semibaked for this one.

Shared a tasting. From notes.

A: Pours a dark brown body with a purplish tone to it (puce?). Mocha head with poor retention.

S: This nails the aroma that the label suggests: it's peanut butter! There's a mild lactic sweetness that reminds me of a milk stout.

T: The taste falls a little short in the peanut butter impression, though it's still there. There's something that reminds me of peanut oil. Chocolate and flaked oats are also noticeable. I also pick up roasted malt and licorice (this could also be lactic sweetness; I sometimes have trouble telling the two apart when there's a lot going on) -- the latter two particularly in the aftertaste. The peanut flavor fades as the beer warms.

M: It has a good, creamy mouthfeel as I'd expect from an oatmeal stout. Good carbonation levels; neither too high nor too low.

D: This one really got the aroma down, but like a few other Short's beers, I feel that the taste is a letdown in comparison. Having this next to the PB&J, I felt this was the worse of the two. However, when I blended the two beers (2 parts Uber Goober to 1 part PB&J), it better captured the peanut flavor that PB&J was lacking.

12oz bottle into DFH snifter.

A - Pours black with a minimal tan-colored head that leaves a trace of lacing and a thin ring around the edge of the glass.

S - Peanuts, chocolate, malts, and alcohol...maybe too much hotness for 6.5%.

T - Crunchy peanut butter, dark chocolate, malts, and too much alcohol. Pretty damn hot for only 6.5%, which takes away from this one a bit. I'm not sure if this is really 6.5%...tastes like 10%.

M - Perhaps a bit too thin, slight carbonation, smooth.

D - I prefer Mystery and Cup A Joe to this one....not bad.
