Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Picked up a four-pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Pours a clear cola brown colored brew with a fast dissipating tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and a thin beige ring. Aroma of ginger snaps, a hint of chocolate, some nutmeg and mince meat pie filling. Taste is medium to medium-full bodied, more roasted chocolate malt in flavor than aroma. Additional flavors of ginger, cocoa nibs and some clove. Finish has a mild ginger bite followed by some roasted chocolate malt aftertaste.

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Nice dark brown / black pour with solid pillow tan head. Ginger, malt, chocolate, vanilla and sage among the wonderful aromas emanating from the pour. Very sweet,taste, thin texture with minimal carbonation. This is a nice drink to pair with dessert or to cap off a meal, with a decent kick. I typically do not like sweet beers but this is an exception, because of the quality, taste and abv. One of my favorite 3 Sheeps offerings!

[Tap] 2013 vintage. Nearly black in color with a silky head. Aromas of chocolate, ginger root and anise. The taste is very ginger forward. Herbal hops, mint, chocolate, sticky toffee, clove and a nice roasty character blend well with the ginger. Low carbonation levels. I was really happy with this one, even though I am not a huge fan of ginger flavoring in beers. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a dark brown with reddish hints. No lace. Aroma leads with ginger. And follows with ginger. Later some malts show through.Taste is sweet malt, and ginger and other Chinese foods flavors. Stuff would like to eat, but not really drink. Medium bodied without any real distinction. Finishes spicy and tangy, and sweet, but without much length. Interesting idea, but too limited. 13.2

Pours a dark chestnut with a big tan head that settles to a persistant ring and leaves great lacing. Aroma is predominately ginger with some cocoa and a slight savoriness as it warms. The ginger is slightly forward in the taste also but combines well with the light chocolate flavor. A moderate roast flavor and bitterness as well as some earthiness. Finishes semi dry with some lingering light ginger and tasty bitter. Mouthfeel is almost slick with medium body and carbonation. A straightforward ginger spiced stout that’s not very complex but has clean flavors that aren’t harsh.

It has a strong ginger aroma at first. As it warms up the true flavor emerge, as any real beer’a flavored should. Warm and sharp with a little nuttiness thrown in. A great after dinner drink!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle:   Lots of sage and clove in this stout.   Very dark brown, thin head and lacing.   Big herbal spiciness, fairly sweet, unique, and interesting.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean towards the back, lingering roasted malts, sage, clove, and just general herbal notes.   This one was a bit different, but quite a bit welcomed!   Thanks Bob!

Ughsmash (7253) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottled. Poured garnety-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up a bunch of spices I couldn’t place along with vanilla, cocoa, and licorice.. interesting. The flavor found the same rich spice paste throughout, with vanilla and cocoa support.. licorice and somewhat bitter spices on the acidity finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. the spices got in the way a bit, but it was still aiight. And.. upon further review.. it was definitely ginger.

madvike (3033) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle - Pretty dark black pour with a filmy light tan head. Nose is gingerbread, ash, light sweetness. Not terribly pungent. Taste is Taste is really heavy on the ginger, with some light florals/perfume, medium roast dark malt, and a lightly milky, chocolatey finish. Hint of molasses. Medium-thin with medium carbonation. If they dialed back the ginger on this I think I’d like it quite a bit, but as it is it’s a ginger bomb.
