Shorts Brewing Company’s Bourbon Barrel Soaked Sustenance Black Beer is not currently available in stores, but when up at their pub this past weekend they had six packs available for around $17. I hadn’t tried this before, but it sounded good and so we picked up a pack.
This beer is good.
I’m strongly reminded of New Holland’s Dragon’s Milk, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had a fresh bottle of it, and I really think that Short’s beer is better. I’m just slowly sipping this, and the glass will probably be empty in an hour or so. It’s also only 6.5%, which surprised me a bit.
This is really, really good.
