Nearly black pour, tan head, some lace/retention. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, caramel, lightly fruity, light cola. Medium to full body, moderate sweetness, chocolate and cola flavors dominate with the barrel aging rounding it out. Tasted like a BA BW to me.

S: A light smell of spices, oak and chocolate, followed by just a hint of moasses and bourbon. P: Almost completly black with a big thick fuzzy head that dispences into many brown bubbles. T: Chocolate upfront, but moves quickly into oak, pale malts and dark fruits. Finishes a bit warm. M: Thin with soft carbonation and some stickiness towards the end. O: Its good but a bit weird.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Woodshed 2.0. Great name for a beer. I surfed down at the Sloughs a couple of times. Bottle share courtesy of Sparky. It pours with a very dark looking body that supports a weak tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened dark roasted malts nuanced by molasses mixed with smooth whiskey. The taste is smooth and rich starting with dark roasted malts and nearly burnt malts and then heading into smooth sweet whiskey notes. Smooth sipper of a beer.

Bottle generously shared by Sparky @ Woodshed 2.0! First rate! Deep mahogany pour with a tightly packed latte head. Aroma of cocoa, dark roasted coffee, oak, spicy rye, vanilla, and molasses. Would go
with Chuck Norris wrestling a Honey Badger over Charles Bronson wrestling a Grizzly but what do I know? Haven’t been disappointed by this brewery yet...well crafted and nicely done!
