Resiny hoppy nose. Brown pour with medium thick head. Hoppy resin start with caramelly, malty finish. Medium body. A good IPA / brown ale hybrid.

The Shed Hellbrook Pilsner
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Dated Feb. 22, 2016. The pour is pale yellow with a fizzy white head and busy carbonation. The aroma is decent with a good toasted bread and biscuit malt note and a thin but still noticeable grassy hop note. Light to medium body. Plenty of toasted sweet malts in the taste with a mild and crisp hop finish. Pretty standard Pilsener but still enjoyable to drink.

Shed Profanity Ale
12 oz. bottle at The Dover Brickhouse, Dover, NH. Deep brown color, some lasting head. Aroma has a bolder hop profile, good pine with light floral hints.

Flavor has a decent hop element. Malty, nutty and a touch toasty with dark fruits. Then it the hop profile kicks in and adds nice balance. Long floral finish. Dry texture. I thought I would have to fight my way to finish the bottle, not the case. Decent. However, it is kind of forgettable.

It’s have a high alcohol content and very smooth. A non IPA taste. Not a huge head which I like. I read the reviews but I really like it. I’d like to try the other offers of SHED brewery.

Tap industry. A darker brew. Sweet nose. Nice lacing. First taste is a big dull wack. The nose is sweet but the taste is opposite.Quite rude actually. Just a big alky blast of beer in yer face. Nasty nellie astringent finish. Certainly not a civilized brown ale.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Hoping for a bolder aroma. Pours a beautiful color, wishing for more head on this but an amazing brew nonetheless!

Shed Profanity Ale
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with red highlights and a large foamy beige head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was toasty with caramel and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter with notes of anise, floral hops, fruity hops, cocoa and coffee. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

Tap at Inn. Appearance like Coke, aroma a little Coke-ish, tastes similar to Coke. Perception possibly affected by the fact that I drank this in the same sitting as Heady Topper so it just seems like Coke. Sorry! Really, Coke is good stuff.

Shed Nosedive Robust Vanilla Porter
Bottle into oval goblet. Very dark brown, quickly fading head with just a bit of retention around the edge. Vietnamese coffee nose - string coffee, with some milky sweetness. In the mouth, more coffee and malt. Creamy finish, bouncing back and forth with a bit of bitter. Fairly rich porter, walking the line between porter amd (milk) stout

Small is nutty deep and robust. Hints of wood in there as well. Rich brown color. Nutty taste with nice malt profile finish. Taste could linger on tougue all day and wouldn’t complain. Has the potential to be one of the best brown ales. Nice brew.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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
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.

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
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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
