Will I be drinking this again: As with other shorts brew, if it were available in my area I would buy more!

Grade: B+

10/8/2010: Kind of curious as tom why the ABV is unknown on this brew? I love how shorts always has a short description of each beer, but dislike how they never seem to put the ABV on the labels. Very odd to me.

The nose is musty, earthy, and smoky. The flavor is very well balanced between roast/smoke, chocolate, caramel, and a bit citrusy tang going on. This beer is very flavorful considering the mouthfeel is a bit south of average. Good carbonation. Overall this has been the least unique of the Short’s Brew’s I have tried, but hey I’m not complaining as it was still very tasty.
