4.83/5  rDev +8.5%

12 oz bottle poured into a 3 Sheeps pint.
7.7% ABV

A - Clarity is hard to find through this nearly black beer when it's in the pint but rest assured, below the frothy, whipped cappuccino head lies a deceptive beer that looks more ominous that it really is.

S - The best part of waking up is bold, bold, bold Sumatran roasted coffee in your beer! Freshly ground coffee beans arrest the nose and subject it to glorious beatings of dark chocolate chunks, de-bittered black malt and gently lashings of soft wheat.

T - Hello, My Name Is Joe's onslaught of coffee doesn't just stop at the nose, no sir. This beer continues it's Sumatran assault into the flavor where fresh coffee dominates the smooth chocolate and wheat undertones bringing that familiar breakfast-time taste to the forefront of the brain.

M - What with it's bountiful wheat profile-n-all, Hello, My Name Is Joe is creamy smooth and medium-light bodied making it deceptively dark and quite easy to drink, even at nearly 8%. I hate to say it but I believe I told you so.

O - Well hello there, Joe. I feel like I should have poured you into a ceramic mug because you're damn near coffee! This 3 Sheeps seasonal offering screams freshly ground, freshly brewed coffee through and through, so much so in fact, it's hard to detach the mind from the bean long enough to admire it's gently wheat and balanced roasted malt flavor. If the beer smells this good, I can't even imagine how fantastic the brewhouse must smell on Joe brew day! If it's straight-up coffee you're looking for in a beer, look no further.

4.46/5  rDev +0.2%

Dark brown, bordering on black. The body appears relatively thin and their is a nice thick cap of light brown foam on top.

Smells of sweet malt with fresh roasted coffee. Lots and lots of fresh coffee that is.

Lets stick with the fresh roasted coffee theme here as well. It is fresh, creamy, sweet and god damn delicious. The great thing about the coffee taste is that it is not roasty, toasty or bitter. It is the sweet and chocolate covered coffee bean variety. Delicious.

Medium feel, slick and very soft carbonation. There is a slight drying effect at the end.

Fantastic coffee beer. So glad I grabbed this based on previous reviews and a recommendation at the store. I HATE the taste of a fresh cup of coffee. Coffee in beer I tend to find amazing. This fits that bill. Packs the coffee flavor of a say a Bourbon County Coffee, but drinks so much easier. This beer is a must for coffee/coffee beer lovers! 3 Sheeps will grab peoples attention with this concoction for sure.

Had on tap at a Milwaukee beer festival last summer. Lovely coffee aroma (from Alterra, a great Milwaukee roaster) with a flavor that doesn't overwhelm, this is a wonderful variation on their already-terrific Baaad Boy wheat. Pours nicely too, even on a chilly day.

This is an imperial black wheat infused with a custom blend of Sumatran coffee from Alterra (a roaster in Milwaukee).
As opposed to an imperial stout with coffee, the black wheat base really allows the fantastic coffee flavor to shine through this beer. The aroma emanates with a wonderful scent of a bold coffee roast. Through the first sip you get some very nice roasty characters along with a fair amount of sweetness. There is a subtle fruitiness that comes forward in the middle of the sip here as well. Finishes with little to no astringency.
Overall, a very unique and delicious coffee beer. Lighter bodied and smoother than most coffee stouts, but also well balanced between the roasty character and the sweetness of the brew.
