    Enjoyed in Vermont. Definitely unfiltered with lots of floating particles. Copper colour with a light beige head and some creamy lacing. Aromas of fruity malts with hints of roasted ones. Some caramel as well and nuts. Much of the same for the taste. Written 7.4% ABV. on label. A nice mix between a brown and red ale.

    About average for a brown. Medium murky brown appearance. Flavors of caramel malt. Balanced toward the sweeter side. The 7.4% ABV is nice...tastes decent...but besides that, this is sort of forgettable.

    Raisins toasty malts and floral hops in the nose. Pours an unfiltered medium brown with a nice off-whtie head that leaves a long-lasting skim coat with some lace. Mouth is creamy , a bit buttery, a medium to thinish bodied, carbonation nicely done. Tasty (and brown or old ales are not my favorites) with some fruity esters predominant. Maybe figs or prunes, ripe dark fruit, hint of chocolate and coffee. Just a bit of warming from the alcohol which is well masked. Some flowery hops in the profile with only a hint of bitter, slightly sweet but not cloying. Finish is clean and dry. Damn well made beer.

    Back in my undergrad days we used to stop at the Shed after a day of skiing and get growler fills of mountain ale. I'm very excited to find this in Pittsburgh in bottles, as the brewery has been purchased by otter creek. Deep amber/mohagany pour with very little head and thin carbonation. Strong aromas of hazelnut and bread. The mouthfeel is thin but the beer is pleasant and drinkable for a moderate ABV. Tastes of biscuity malts, caramel, wheat bread, and tree nuts. This is a nostalgic beer for me, it's not phenomenal but a nice drinking experience.

    A medium to full-bodied dark ale, almost black in color, that had a dark brown head that lingered for a while. some faint aromas of caramel and alcohol. I tasted flavors of caramel, chocolate, port and alcohol on the palate. A delicious old ale from Shed.
