Shed India Pale Ale 3.5
6-pack caché entre 2 lots de Bud dans un Sunoco du Vermont. À mi-chemin entre une ipa et une dia. Bien houblonné, amertume moyenne, goût sucré. Pas pire.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.4
Pours dark black with an off white head. Aroma is of malts, hops, caramel, a little lactic, and bark. Heavy, oily, and carbonated palate. Flavors are of malts, hops, grass, chocolate, and some toastiness. Leaves a dry hoppy malt finish. A little bitter but this was decent stuff in my opinion.

Shed Mountain Ale 4
Pours brown with a slightly reddish tint, with minimal, but lacy white head. Aromas are malty sweet caramel and mild nuttiness. Flavor is similar - sweet and bready qualities. Finish is clean and fairly dry. Pretty decent stuff.

Shed Mountain Ale 3.3
Coffee notes dominate, some molasses and a bit of brown sugar as well. A bit of nuttiness. Kinda like a cross between a brown ale and a porter. Can’t decide if I like this one or not.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.6
12oz into a glass. Pours a dark brown, super dark. Medium caramel head, ample lacing. Aroma of hops up front, then strong malts, then they mix instanly. Kind of weird, questionable, yet soothing. Medicinal qualities, brown malts, hoppy flare, not the best interchange between the two, but still fun. Nice solid punch with the 6.8%. Good in the deep fall in the Northeast.

Shed Nosedive Robust Vanilla Porter 3.4
12 oz. bottle, part of a mixed 12 pack from a local grocery store. Dark brown pour with a beige cap. A few bits and pieces of lace. Smells like coffee and vanilla bean. Light sweetness. Roasted malt and vanilla. Tad thin for something touted as "robust". Pretty decent overall.

Shed Nosedive Robust Vanilla Porter 2.9
Pours a deep dark brown, almost black, from a bottle. Nose of vanilla and coffee, like a coffee syrup. Flavor rather sweet, offset by some bitter roasted malt notes, almost burnt. A little unbalanced with sweetness, and a little too much on the vanilla side of things covering up the malts. Okay beer.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.6
Pours a dark brown from a bottle. Comes off as more of a black IPA, at least at the temp I served it at. Some caramel flavor, but the big notes were piney hops front and center throughout it all, lots of bitterness too. Good beer.

Shed Nosedive Robust Vanilla Porter 3.8
This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown color with slight ruby hues along the sides. The head was about a finger’s worth of white to off white foaminess quickly dissipating. Lacing was barely there. The smell starts off with robust coffee beans delivering on sweet rich dark and milk chocolate. Vanilla enters in as it warms. The taste was moderately sweet with a delicate roastiness about it. The aftertaste is sweet milk chocolate leading into a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing a really nice smooth sweet stickiness running all over my tongue. Overall, as an English Porter this one works despite not having the "dark fruits" element to it. I’d still have it again.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.7
Malt and pine aroma. A root beer colored body with a light tan bubbly head which is also like root beer. Bold bitterness balanced with a cream malt taste. Kind of a cross between a Brown Ale and Black IPA.

12oz. Bottle, part of a mixed Shed 12 pack. On sale for $11.99. Semi clear cola brown with a 3/8" khaki head which recedes quickly. Some nice sticky lace coats the glass. A few floaties. Strong hop resin nose with a solid earthiness. Flavor smacks of pine resin, earth and malt. Nice mix. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter finish.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.5
Wow, another one of these over-the-top IPAs. I wasn’t really aware of it when I ordered it. Very strong Cascade or Cascade-like hops predominate, and do so heavily. A somewhat assertive malt backbone tries to keep up, but falls quite a bit back in the end. Hops overtake. Strong and alcoholic, with plenty of resiny bitterness. I assume this is a well-made beer, but I just can’t appreciate these highly alcoholic hop-bombs anymore. The gravity, the sweetness, the cloyingness of it is just too much.

On tap at blend. Dark brown color,foamy minimal head. Zero carbonation. Aroma is bread, hops, mud. Taste is malty, touch of vinegar. Not sure what the intent is here....kind of halfway between malty and hoppy. Yuck. All around pretty bad.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 06-25-15. Brown mildly hazy pour with a lingering tan head. As promised the aroma is mostly hopped up with floral and resiny elements mingling with the sweet maltiness of a brown. Medium body. The taste has a moderate malty sweetness that becomes quickly overtaken by the lingering, bitterness that ends dryly.

Shed Profanity Ale 4.1
I have always been a fan of red and brown ales-I like a beer that has a sweet component to offset the bitter or burn of the alcohol and hops. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE IPA, but the expectation and flavors are drastically different. This was great. The sweet malt flavor was not too sweet, and hits your mouth and senses first. The flavor profile changes and hop flavor comes through with a mild citrusy finish. Starts sweet, ends dry. A pleasureable beer.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.7
12 oz partagée par Frank. Un liquide brun avec une belle et solide tête mousseuse. Au nez, une forêt de houblons qui fait ombrage à une base maltée chocolatée et caramélisée. En bouche, la verte fraîcheur des pins, épinettes et autre sapinage qui fait oublier les céréales brunes. En bouche, un liquide de corps moyen, un jeu modéré des bulles et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale amère, jamais résineuse, florale et forestière. Agréable, facile à boire, extra fraîche.

Shed Mountain Ale 3.1
Bottle - 12oz. Hazy copper body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel and woody hints. Its relatively robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody, brown sugar, and some fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.4
1st NH guy who scored this must’ve got his hands on a reject-bottle, b/c there’s no "chemical" flavor to this beer at least to my detection abilities... The taste is still a little more bitter than malty, no real sweetness present, but I could drink (and have dranken now, aotw) several and remain intrigued throughout said experience.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit hop nose, flavor is grapefruit hops and some caramel malt starts to balance. Not nearly as hoppy as their Profanity ale. Gift.

Pours a three finger khaki head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Obscure brown color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Burnt malt nose, but flavor is more piney hops than anything else. Really hoppy brown. Long lingering bitter hoppy aftertaste. Gift.

This is intensely awful stuff, certainly tends toward profanity - took me 5 minutes after sniffing the chemical aroma to dare take a sip! The same nastiness comes through the flavor. If this wasn’t dated fresh, I’d suspect it had a wicked bacterial spoilage. My new worst beer. By far.

Shed Profanity Ale 3.1
Bottle dated 05/15/15. This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy brown with red hues roaming around the sides of the glass. One finger white foamy head leads to a stringy sliding lacing. The smell starts off with a big burst of citrus hops eventually balancing into a toasty nutty malt. The taste copies the aroma and leads into a sharp citrus aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed decent for a Brown ale - allowing enough hops to empower the bitterness to be the harshness. Overall, American Brown ale, well it sure is. Definitely one of the more bitter brown ales on the market. It might even make you swear, haha.

Shed India Pale Ale 3.2
Right side of the neck of the bottle reads: 021715, I think that’s born on. This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden orange with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a good minute. Light stringy lacing sticks and slides into the beer. The smell takes a lemon zest to cross over a delicate grassy sweetness. Light caramel maltiness balances nicely. The taste has a good balance of sweet to bitter to zest. There’s a nice sweet to zesty citrus aftertaste but no finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs moderately with a good bitterness pounding appropriately. Overall, as an EIPA, its a bit different as the English side of the aroma doesn’t really show, but hey, I’m thinking more AIPA fans might like this one.

12 ounce bottle, 4/13/15. Hazy amber, medium sized foamy off-white head. Good retention. Aroma of minty, herbal hops, eucalyptus, caramel malt. The taste is citrus hops, tea, minty notes, eucalytus, caramel, candied citrus. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, a bit medicinal. Definitely an odd one. 800th IPA rating!

Shed India Pale Ale 3.1
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom NH. Aroma is herbs, piney hops with hint of natural gas smell and late fruit. Appearance on first pour is clear golden yellow pour with significant sparkling, one finger-width frothy-creamy head wiht good retention and nice lacing. Second pour yielded cloudiness from sediment (it is unfiltered, after all). Taste is mildly sweet fruity start and moderately bitter end. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, pretty flat in terms of carbonation (how can this be with that much sparkle?) and faint lingering bitter finish. Overall, a nice-looking beer with somewhat interesting though not entirely pleasant aroma, average taste and forgettable palate.

Shed Mountain Ale 3.2
Robe brune bien trouble avec un très mince filet de mousse qui disparait rapidement. Arômes de caramel, canne à sucre et compote de fruits. En bouche, le goût est surtout orienté vers le sucre. Cassonade, eau d’érable, mélasse, le tout mélangé à des saveurs de fruits rouges rappelant le jus de fraises, les raisins secs et les canneberges concentrée. L’amertume est elle aussi sucrée avec des effluves faisant pensées à des pelures de pommes.

Shed Mountain Ale 3.3
Hazed chestnut appearance with an average size beige head and good lacing. Subtle aroma of molasses and caramel. Flavor is modestly sweet and earthy with notes dark fruit, nuts and brown bread. Alcohol seems pretty well hidden, but calling it a session beer in the commercial deScription is misleading when it clocks in at 7.4%. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel that leads to an average length finish. Left a cloying aftertaste

12oz bottle, from 6 pack, somewhere around $7-8ish, poured into 16oz tulip glass

Aroma: light citrus, piney hops

Appearance: Golden to orange, big white head, cloudy, with floaties

Taste: Medium bitter

Palate: light body, dry finish, sticky texture

Overall: Not bad for an IPA, but nothing special either. Easy to drink with an American IPA type of hop selection. Some citrus with some pine. Nice dry finish. Just feels like it’s lacking something.

Thanks Grant for picking this up. It’s a bomber..around $5. Pours a dark black with some translucent edges. small head. nose is roasted marshmallows, almonds and vanilla. Nice middle creamy mouthfeel. vanilla up front and with a long lingering vanilla finish. nice roasty coffee beans. it’s pretty darn good and impressive given the ABV.
