Yet another brew received from hoppymeal, thanks again Derek! Short's Woodmaster pours garnet with glowing mahogany highlights throughout when directly backlit. A short fingers worth of white head formed on the pour and fell rather quickly to a skim coat with a ring around the glass. The body is a touch murky and the head leaves some small spots of lace on its way down.

The maple syrup in the nose of this beer is huge and the pecan doesn't fall far behind. There's a solid toasted and caramel maltiness laying down a foundation but the maple syrup and pecans steal the show. The aroma morphs back and forth between the two almost creating two totally different aromas. When I first opened this I noticed a bit of sour in the nose that I believe is from the pecans but as it warms the sourness disappears. Clean alcohol on the backend.

The maple syrup and pecans aren't as noticeable on the tongue as they were in the nose. The base of this beer, the double brown, is dominant throughout, which is how it should be. Very toasty with a touch of Cocoa Pebble like chocolatiness here and there. A quick hit of clean alcohol hits mid palate and is pushed aside by the sweet maple syrup and pecan nuttiness. Both adjuncts mix well with the double brown and never become overpowering.

Short's does a great job with the mouth feel of all their beers. This is no exception. Although the alcohol is on the high side the body never steps above medium. This beer moves through rather quickly with just a touch of stick on the back of the tongue.

Woodmaster goes down easily but the big alcohol and heavy flavors really limit the drinkability. A couple glasses would be nice but anymore then that would be overkill.

Another unique, delicious beer from Short's. I can't get enough of their beer. The maple syrup and pecans in this beer really set it apart from other nut browns, not to mention the big abv. Thanks again for the treat Derek!

Another brew from OC> :cheers:

A- Clear root beer color with a light tan thin head.

S- Has a sweet nose to it. Light aroma of syrup and brown sugar.

T- Very sweet brew. Would go well on waffles. The syrup is very present. Some very light hops in the finish, but this is more on the sweet side than hoppy.

M- A little thin of a brew, but not bad.

O- A solid brown ale, but could have blended the sweetness down a notch or two. Still worth a drink.

Served In: Flute Glass
