COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English-style strong ale. This brown ale has great malt depth and drinks like a session beer.

Draft. Poured a dark charcoal body with thin head. Aroma is light malt and coffee. Flavor is light hops, chocolate, coffee and malty. Smooth but an odd mix of flavors. Good ale.

A rotating ale, commercial description an English old. Drinkable, amber with a white crown to it. Chocolate malts in taste, sourness follows. Odd but fruitiness, barley and malt. Not significant hop here.

In what seems to be the typical Shed style it was not very carbonated and had a sweet malt flavor. Easy enough to drink anyway.

Growler. Pours a red tinged clear brown with a small white head. Not much in the way of lacing. Main flavor is malts with a light caramel nutty background. This is a smooth drinking session type ale. Best consumed fresh. This is another one of those brews that I thought was the greatest thing in the world before exposure to Ratebeer. Now its just an old friend.

On draft at Red Square, Burlington. Poured deep brown with very thin head. Appeared poorly carbonated. Lots of toasted malt, toffee, caramel flavor. Meh.

on tap-pours an off white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-sweet. Taste is medium malt-sweet, dark fruit, yeast (apple?). OK carbonation.

Great beer and best when consumed right in the bar at the Shed Brewery in Stowe, VT. Given the alcohol content, less than a few will do.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2007
sampled and a pint at the brewpub. Dark brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma is earthy, chocolate, caramel, light estery fruits and vanilla. Taste comprises same as aroma, medium to full bodied, light carbonation. Nice beer.

Caramel, earthy taste. Light to dark appearance. Let it breathe as full flavor grows stronger as it warms up in pint glass. Hardly taste alcohol except at finish
