(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 to a deep reddish-brown. Head is off-white and dissipates quickly, leaving light lacing. The aroma is a little corny, but otherwise decent. Mild flavors. The dark grain flavors really overpower any wheat taste you might get. Usually wheat has a sweet, spicy flavor, but this drinks more like Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter than a wheat ale. The carbonation is almost perfect, while the flavors hit the palette rather mildly. This is better than I was expecting. The price wasn't too bad either, build your own 6-pack for $7.99

A - 2 finger head. Head is khaki in color and fairly creamy. Retention is very nice. Beer itself is black/very dark brown with some light brown around the very edges of the glass. Creamy head is retained all the way to the end of the glass.

S - Caramel malt is the first aroma to hit my nose very quickly followed by dark chocolate. It has a yeasty undertone to it as well. Toasted bread is another aroma that is present.

T - Toasted malt is the first flavor to hit my tongue. Bit of a yeasty flavor. Caramel undertone. Slightly hopped, bitter finish.

M - The main mouthfeel is chewy and thick but it progresses all of a sudden to a dry crispness at the end for the finish.

O - Very easy to drink with or without food. Not as heavy as most darker beers. Could drink several of these which is generally not the case with darker beers due to their heaviness. This is a dark ale that my wife actually enjoys, and she does not like darker beers.

This is a really good dark ale. There are a lot of nitro bubbles that were streaming from the glass. The head is a nice off white color about a finger high,depending on the type of glass used .This is a very pleasant stout, that is well put together. This is above average for the style

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.

3/1 - Bottle. Very smooth beer with an easy pourand very light texture. Very dark coloured beer with a malty head. Smell is coffee and chocolate, not very strong. Went down like an iced coffee. Very smooth and light, with a coffee aftertaste.

Good beer.

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!
