If I could only drink one beer for the remainder of my days dead sheep (Riggwelter) would be it gjkulverston (10) - kirkby stephen cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2004
this beer is dark and deadly one of the best beers black sheep do great in bottels but much better on tap zippermouth (35) - Newcastle, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2004
I've had this bottles and in the pub fresh from the cask. Cask is better. A dark beer with plenty of character and bite. Salt of the earth. An honest drop. Strong. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2005
Strong, nutty, fruity, aroma with notes of liquorice and dark malt roastiness. Clear copper-brown body with decent and lasting, fine-bubbled, off-white head. Thick and malty chocolate flavour is nutty in character with some lightly salty, smoky, liquorice notes and roasty finishing bitterness. Rich, creamy, medium-full body with lively carbonation that awakens the tastebuds. I enjoyed this one in the bottle previously and find it to be every bit as satisfying on cask. Cask at GBBF 2005. leaparsons (10655) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2005
Cask, New Road Inn, Leicester. Dark brown with hints of red and a cream head. Aromas are burnt toffee malts, banana, chocolate and earthy winter fruit. Flavours are fruity with rich malts, toffee, banana and roast character. Has mellow winter fruit. Dry and bitter hops on the finish. A very malty moreish beer.

(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Dark brown colour. Toasty nose, with hints of raisins. The taste is potent, yet reasonably easy drinking, with a full- flavoured sweet malty, slightly dry hoppy taste. SilkTork (5777) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2006
Dover Beer Fest. Dark, tingly premium bitter/strong ale. A rolling hop and malt experience which delights and intrigues in a deep and delicious manner. A very yummy beer. RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 26, 2006
Cask, Beverley Inn, Doncaster. Clear very dark caramel colour, ruby hints and a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, slightly sweet chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter but bags of malt and dark fruits come through towards the end. Finishes bitter and lasts well, easy to drink, very enjoyable. dynamiteninja (1872) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
