3.89/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a 300 ml weizen glass. The color, as promised by the beer’s webpage, truly is darker than some porters: it looks black but may be very deep brown. When held to a lamp (I have never done that with a wheat beer!) it becomes a dark cherry color. Two fingers of tan, buttery head dissipated fairly quickly, leaving a bubbly skim and ring around the edge.

Smell: The aroma is very smooth and reminiscent of oatmeal stout. It offers a pleasant blend of dark chocolate, roasted malts, oat-like grain (probably wheat — duh!), a little molasses, and black raspberry.

Taste: The mouthfeel is not as creamy as oatmeal stout, but it does offer much of the same flavor. The roasted bitterness is kept at a minimum until the aftertaste, when it lingers on the taste buds. Dark chocolate, wheat, maybe some caramel or toffee, and a hint of black and cherry licorice.

Drinkability: This is good stuff and I bet it is superb on tap. I think I have a reason to visit Sheboygan now.

This pours a dark brown/black color with a slight, off-white head. The aroma is slightly robust with burnt starches and molasses. The taste is fairly heavy and complex. There is a lot of roasted flavor mixed with some coffee a slightly bitter hop finish. Pretty decent brew for being a newer brewery.

From: Woodman's, Kenosha, WI
Date: None on bottle
Glass: Standard US pint glass

Three Sheeps' black wheat beer smells and tastes like a stout that apparently uses a variety of wheat malts along with barley. This comes across as an enjoyable, baker's chocolate and heavily toasted bread-forward beer that would be good to get again if one was looking for a stout-like wheat-based beer.

Pours a fairly towering and ever-expanding head, dark beige in color, made up of large-sized bubbles for a very dish soap like appearance. Retention is excellent, the head lasting several minutes before falling to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass. Lacing is not present. Beer is a dark brown to black in color, with light bringing out lighter brown hues around the edges of the body. Carbonation visible along the sides of the glass, but not through the opaque body, high in number andn activity.

Aroma of low base malt sweetness, notable roast malt that gives some dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and darkly toasted bread, along with minor phenolics from the yeast that clash a bit with the roast, but are low enough to escape being unappealing.

Front of palate tastes light sweetness mixed with roasted malt characters (cocoa, charred toast) and slight yeast phenolics. Mid-palate of roasted malt contributing some dark chocolate, cocoa, charred (but not burnt) toast, and phenolics from yeast that are not necessarily in line with the other flavors, but are low enough to escape detracting significantly. Back of palate experiences smooth roasted malt giving a bit of baker's chocolate and charred toast, with phenolics in the background. Aftertaste of roasted malt that gives some dark chocolate, light sweetness, a bit of charred toast, and light bitterness from roasted malt.

Beer is medium-light in body, with carbonation of medium-high intensity, resulting in a slightly fizzy, then foamy (3/4) and smooth (1/4) mouthfeel. A bit less carbonation would probably benefit the beer. Closes dry, with low to moderate stickiness clinging to the palate.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, wheat, cocoa, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with char and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a slightly better taste in my opinion.

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

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours pitch black, with a fast white head. Looks a little thin but for the style I would say it's good.

S- Coco, bananas, wheat, roasted coffee and dark fruit. Has a wheat smell with a porter backbone.

T- Nice roast flavors. Chocolate and dates. Has some banana in there as well. Very good.

M- Smooth and refreshing. Has a good body and active carbonation. it doesn't stick around to long, so you'll have to take another sip.

O- A good beer. Not a fan of wheat's but the roast quality add a dimension I like. I'm glad I got to try this.
