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.

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.

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 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.

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!

Pretty good stuff that'd be a lot better if not so cold. Served with a smallish, tan, foamy, thick, creamy head that slowly settled and lots of sheeting lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is malt and roast. Flavor's like nose, with good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, slightly long, and very drinkable. Again there'd be a lot more interesting things here if it weren't so cold. Still, good stuff.

A - Deeper brown with lighter brown highlights and a thin tan head.
S - Lightly roasted malt, multigrain bread, light hints of chocolate and coffee.
T - Multigrain bread and lightly toasted bread followed by light coffee and chocolate notes. Slightly yeasty in the finish.
M - On the light side but it plays well with the roasty/toasty notes. Good carbonation.
D - Nicely balanced and easy drinking.
