AlenomoreExcellent27 Mar 2010 Still on and still in good nick!
MattPoor26 Mar 2010 Lifeless and slightly tart!!!
AlenomoreExceptional25 Mar 2010 Surprised this seasonal was still on, and still in excellant condition. Seemed to taste even better than last weeks sample, no doubt due to the good cellarman here!
AlenomoreGood17 Mar 2010 On for my late evening visit, found Sheps' seasonal, usually around for Paddys week, but nothing special, very thin compared, and not much going on compared to other stouts I've sampled.

DosserAcceptable25 Mar 2011 Watery double stout lacking any body or real flavour. 4.1% saves Sheps even more tax.

BlairGood27 Mar 2010 Dark slightly tart stout, a little lacking in flavour but that really is only a small niggle. Roasted malt dominates with a smooth slightly creamy finish. Actually pretty good.
IanGood20 Mar 2010 I thought that this was even better than the day before. Really good roasted malts, even if they are slightly harsh on the finish.
IanGood19 Mar 2010 Black, with brown edges, lasting cream head. Decent dry stout, lots of burnt roast malt on finish. Aroma of choc and roast malt. Very burnt and roast with some body but the burnt malt dominates just a touch too much. But still really good and I sank a pint inn 5 mins no problem.
