A robust Irish style oatmeal stout with distinct roast chocolate notes and a creamy smooth finish.The German immigrants who founded Milwaukee's first big breweries brought over more from their homeland than a love of great beer: they brought their zest for life and friendly competition. Area brewers would gather regularly for a game of Sheepshead which would develop from a friendly after-work card game into a late night of skill and nerve, full of tense moments, shouting, laughter, and, of course, great beer. Gesundheit!

MaltOne (322) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2013
On tap @MAH-Grafton. Poured dark, opaque chocolate brown, thin but lasting layer of tan foam. Light aroamas of roasted grain, coffee. Flavor more on the dry side, a bit closer to burnt grains with a hint of sour. Medium to light palate for the style. Overall, a step above most mass produced dark beers, very easy drinking. Would not have pegged it as a either a sweet or oatmeal stout.

On tap at their Grafton location, pours an almost opaque brown with a rich deep tan head. The smell is roasted malt, coffee. The taste is as it smells with some decent roast ending with a touch of bitterness. The body is light/medium with smooth, fine carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Carlisle (536) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Nitro draft at Milwaukee Ale House. Black with ruby notes and thick tan head with substantial lacing. Chocolate malt and coffee aroma. Chocolate malt upfront with coffee notes and some bitterness. Chocolate finish. Body is a bit thin for a stout, especially a nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro pour at Milwaukee Ale House. The beer is black with a quarter inch of tan head. Oats, roast,chocolate. Classic oatmeal stout aroma and flavor. Super easy to drink. Delightful feel on the palate, attributed in large part to the serving medium. Well balanced and easy drinking. One of the highlights from this establishment.

Draft. Pours almost black. Mediun dense creamy light brown head, fully lasting with thick lace. Medium body. Loaded with coffee and chocolate. Some caramel. Some sweetness nicely balanced by moderate roastiness and mild bitterness. Creamy. Quite delicious.

Good oatmeal stout but not great. I had it at their bar as part of a flight. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

akoeninger (682) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Had this at the Milwaukee Ale House, nitrogen tapped. This black stout came with a sizable tan head that lingered for some time. Smells a smoky roasted chocolate. Tastes like good roasted malt, dark coffee, and bitter sweet chocolate. Very drinkable brew.

Not quite as tasty as that other SheepHead, but I could enjoy a few pints of these on a cool day

nuplastikk (5793) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Imperial pint at MAH. Big, rusty beige head. Brown-black body. Somewhat underwhelming for a Stout, needs some more chocolate depth. Very caramelly. Watery, doesn’t really nail the style.

Tmoney99 (13583) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a black color with an average fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet coffee finish of moderate duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.
