(Served in a tulip glass)
A- The jet black body supports a pale tan cream that boils but last for a good bit.

S- The aroma of green bananas and green young wood grows as the beer opens. There is a mellow chocolate malt finish with a hint of coffee.

T- The mellow chocolate cream malt has a nougat finish with a touch of sweetness and a green banana character that lingers. As the beer warms there is a light tartness that comes through.

M- This beer has medium-light mouthfeel with a fizz that fills the tongue.

O- This has some nice unique chocolate wheat character but the green bananas and young wood are a bit odd, and start to dominate.

Pours a HUGE, dense, tan head that is surprisingly persistent. Aroma is acid, toasted malt. It smells exactly like a porter or stout would. Black. Starts with a nice, deep, toasted malt flavor, a touch of metallic twang. Builds into a very coffee like acidity as the hops blend with the toasted malt. The finish is lingering coffee.

This pretty much drinks like a stout, I'm not sure how the wheat plays into this.
It's quite good, though.

3 Sheeps Baaad Boy

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served chilled.

A) A very dark brown, with about a finger of light tan head. The head settled to a wispy dusting. A bit of lacing too.

S) Quite a bit of dark roast. It's a bit charred. Light hop bitterness. A hint of dark chocolate as it warms. I didn't pick up much wheat.

T) Plenty of roast and some chocolate characteristics. A bit of wheat in the flavor. Finishes roasty...

M) Pretty light, with a fair amount of sizzle. Not as smooth as advertised. Lingering aftertaste...

O) Not bad, but of the 3 sheeps offerings I've tried, this is my least favorite. I definitely would not go out of my way for it, but that's just like my opinion man... Far out...

Cheap growler fill from Timer's in Racine.

Poured into a pair of tulip glasses. it has a rusty copper orange with a light haze. Initial finger of white foam that settles quickly to a wispy skim and ring of bubbles around the edges.

Yeasty, earthy aroma, multigrain bread. Something a bit musty and funky fermentation wise, seems young.

Bready multigrain flavors, light buttered biscuit, yeast. Fairly simple and straightforward. Some light astringency, lightly bitter and sweet, bready and malt forward. A bit watery but drinkable. Overall pretty simple and seems like it could use a bit more hop or fruity yeast esters to give it some dimension.

Paired with cured smoked pork shoulder, wild boar sausage, and prosciutto charcuterie. The sweetness of the beer became more apparent when up against the salty cured meats.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

It took me three of their beers before 3 Sheeps gave me some sort of ovine pun? Disappointed... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep midnight sienna topped by a finger of relatively short-lived khaki foam. The nose comprises coffee, light treacle, and a hint of graham cracker way in the back. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a clear vein of cola. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry, crisp finish. Seriously,. everything falls off of an apparently tall and steep tabletop at the end, making me wonder whether or not I've even had anything in my mouth. Overall, this is an interesting beer that I can't pin down in my head. There isn't much wheat influence as I can tell, there's plenty of roast, and nothing stays long enough for me to get acquainted. I guess I could say I wouldn't mind having another, but I'm not likely to ever seek it out again.

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.
