Woodshed 3.0! Big thanks to dak for saving this whole series and sharing with us. Awesome!! Bottle #071 pours with a dark mahogany colored body and minimal head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, some vanilla and some marshmallow and a mild chili pepper note. The taste starts with dark roasted malts, smooth molasses, chocolate and smooth brandy like booze. It then flows into a nice chili pepper heat note riding with the chocolate and a faint cinnamon spice sensation into the finish. This has pleasing richness and balance.

Dark brown pour, brown head. Wow. This is rich and incredibly complex. The apple brandy dies very well with the spices and chocolatey stout. Very tasty!

Bottle shared @ Woodshed 3.0! Dak, once again! Really interesting beer with a lot of complexity and warmth. Brownie batter, spicy cinnamon, sweet vanilla, and subtle capsaicin heat from the ghost peppers. Most refined ghost pepper beer Iíve had by far. A little oak. A hint of brandy. A touch of Granny Smith. It all works. Tasty.

PhillyCraft (3074) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
On tap at perch with Liam, Eric and Craig. Pours black with off white head. Notes are cinnamon stick, pepper, cookies, chocolate and barrel richness. Medium body, a little sticky. Lasting finish....hell yeah. Warming in chest but easy for ghost pepper.

22 ounce bottle poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a thick black with a beige head of foam. The aroma has spicy notes, musty, sweet, chili pepper, tea, and apple notes. Sweet and spicy with a little burn on the back of the tongue. The ghost peppers must not have been too heavy handed, because I had no idea while I was drinking this that they were there. Delicious beer.

Bottle from release. Pours black as night with a small tan head that fizzes away quickly. Poured into a barrel room snifter. Smell is of, chocolate, cinnamon, apple spiciness. Lots going on in this beer, sweet smelling also. Taste hits you with sweet bakers chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon, slight heat from the peppers on the backend. Awesome beer that was crafted well. Wish I had another....

Bottle shared by Corbit/Jim! Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla with sweet dark grains, dark chocolate and a hint of raisins. Flavor begins with dark roasted malts and dark chocolate with growing vanilla and barrel notes.

Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Pours black with a small, creamy, off-white head thatís gone faster than you can say "quick.". The bouquet arouses decadent thoughts of vanilla and chocolate chip cookie dough. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. Chocolaty, boozy flavor and finish. Plenty of ethanol here, but itís clean and endearing. World class beer shared by landhoney!
