Got this during Mad Craft Beer Week, at Buck and badgers. Actually it's the Imperial version called "My Name Is Joe": 7.7% ABV, brewed with local coffee roasted especially for this brew according to the bartender.

Beautiful pour in a goblet, black-brown, with an off-white fluffy head that leaves a permanent lacing stuck on the glass. Aroma is burnt coffee and a sweet something.

In the mout iit's all iced coffee, sweetened as if with sugar from the table. Refreshing on the tongue, medium to light body, with the perfect sharp carbonation.

3.89/5  rDev +7.5%

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
5.5% ABV, 13 IBUs

(Bottles are pending label approval and are expected to hit market early-to-mid fall.)

A - Baaad Boy pours a clear rich mahogany color that is near pitch black in the tulip; Baaad Boy is the black sheep of the bunch! The beer is topped by a light sandy Sahara foam that dots the glass in specks of lace and rests on the black brew with a loose collar.

S - Roasted malt opens with a strong coffee aroma followed by dark chocolate bunny ears. Hints of ash tray-like smokiness linger in the air of this roasted-yet-delicate beer. Nothing else really comes through, but it's got an inviting nose of maltiness.

T - Soft wheat is all but overpowered in this roasty American Dark Wheat Ale. Plenty of chocolate and coffee comes fourth without being too porter-like but it still seems to completely control the flavor with little interaction from other aspects. Faint yeast earthiness reminds of the clay attributes found in 3 Sheeps Cirque du Wit but this is as far as the depth goes.

M - The roasted quality, while tasting delicious, takes over a bit too much in flavor. The mouthfeel, however, shines wonderfully as the wheat softens - takes the edge off the roast nicely. Very little bitterness comes through, but the roast also finishes out dry for a clean, crisp-like swallow which immediately has you tilting the pint back for another sip.

O - Baaad Boy's bold aroma suggests, a little more delicately and balanced, the amount of roast malt used in it's process but the flavor doesn't incorporate the same level of balance. Remaining medium-bodied and lower in alcohol content, Baaad Boy offers a dark-tasting beer without the filling feeling a heavier stout might produce. A fine start at a dark beer for 3 Sheeps!
