3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Arvardís Grille and Pub in Waterbury, Vermont. Pours a dark mahogany-brown with decent beige head and a good amount of lacing. The head fades after 3-4 minutes but the lacing stays with the entire session. Aroma of malts and cocoa. Medium mouth feel. Flavor seems like a mix of hops, buts, and raisins. Dry finish. Decent overall.

Sampled at brewpub. Pours brown in color with no head. Aroma of malts, coffee, earthy hops, and a hint of caramel. Flavor is toasted malts, light chocolate, mild caramel, and a touch of toffee with a light to medium body. Different

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
