Pours a deep rooty black with almost no head; a thin ring forms and sticks around.

Actually a lot more wheat in the nose than I expected. Dark wheat, licorice, and light spicy coffee (black pepper). Slight lactose as well.

Flavor is way too alcohol forward. Fusel alcohol followed by, stroop, black pepper, coffee, and then finally a very nice sweet, creamy dark wheat finish. Breaths are of light pepper, coffee and cream.

Feel is medium bodied, heavily carbonated, and dry and roasty on the finish.

Overall, 3 Sheeps' Joe isn't bad, in fact it's quite good. I'd call this a cross between a coffee dark wheat ale and a doppelbock. Dial down the alcohol a bit and it would be super enjoyable.

Unknown vintage; drank 12/31/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Brown/black hue.

Big dark tan head; nice lace.

Pepper heat & black coffee nose.

Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Creamed coffee flavor up front; mild pepper heat in the finish. Simple, drinkable; instantly forgettable.

L: pour thick and balck
A: nice coffee for an ale
T: like the nose, nice coffee. Not bitter, but not sweet. I wish it was a richer and deeper coffee, but this isn't a stout.
F: smooth, easy drinking, fairly thick too.
O: a very nice coffee ale if you want something coffee but lighter than a stout

A very dark brown with minimal head, even with a very aggessive pour. Little to no head and light carbonation. Bitterness comes from both hops and the roasted coffee as expresso notes come through on the backside. Smooth taste, but with the exception of the coffee, there's little going on in the wheat / malt area for me. I think it could be better, nice try.

Finger plus of tan foam, lightly dimpled surface which reduces to a steady surface dusting, the sheets of lacing slide gently off the glass. Powerful coffee roast to the nose, burnt cocoa, almost oily in nostril texture, the wheat actually comes through clearly, light shudder of plum or cherry fruit, not a great deal of nuanced complexity but admirable sustained thrust. Medium-bodied, roasty and toasty with a lean profile, not many excess notes. You receive less wheat presence here, the bitterness makes the finish short and brings out sour white citrus and tar notes. While muted, broader mix of apricot, grape to cherry fruit. While monochrome it is enjoyable and not so oppressively single-minded that you can’t have a few in one sitting.
