3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Woodshed 3.0! Sample courtesy of Sparky. 50cl bottle pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a dash of chocolate, a bit of a chocolate brownie sensation, molasses and soft thin whiskey. The taste delivers a nice wedge of dark roasted malts and dark roasted coffee to go along with lesser notes of smooth whiskey and subtle soft smokiness. This could use an aromatic smoke presence. Still, a darn nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark brown looking one, it has a small low off-white top. Loaded with cognac and whisky smoke on the nose initially. Some darker roasted nuances in the back after a while, but peated smoky whisky dominates the nose. Well, it dominates the taste as well. A good amount of roasted or even burned wood. A bit one dimensional as the burned whisky-oak lingers forever. I kinda like it though. 03.05.2013

Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown/black with a slight dark tan head. Aroma of dark smoked malt. Chocolate notes. Full bodied. Flavor has evergreen, chocolate, light smoke, tobacco, leather, oak, but not coffee? It is very strongly flavored. Fairly complicated. Quite tasty. Finishes per flavor, but more bitter than it started. Good stuff.
