Sample @ Brewery. Good roasted malt aroma. Black Body with good tan head. Good roasted wood and coffee flavors. Left a dry coco aftertaste. StoutBeerNut (7) - Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2006 does not count
This beer is simply delicious. It drinks like a meal in itself. There is a hint of coffee, and a roasty, earthy aftertaste with a scent of raisin. This beer had an aroma of cooked oatmeal. I tried this beer for the first time last week at the Milwaukee Ale House and I thought it was the most delicious stout that I ever had. Not grainy at all and smooth beyond belief. I wish I could find this beer in Michigan. Sheepshead Stout is deeply satisfying and rich tasting, a far cry from the common beers that I find in most restaurants.

Tried tap as part of a beer sampler at the Milwaukee Ale House. Mild coffee aroma, but hard to pick up. Nice black body, with a decent light brown head. Mild bitter coffee flavor, it was decent. An OK medium body, with little carbonation. Overall, it was OK, but nothing special. I’ve had better stouts. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Tap: dark opaque black with big beige head. Aroma is very dry coffee, flavor the same with long lingering aftertaste. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House Brew Pub. Poured a darker black with red at edges and an averaged sized tan head. Subtle aromas and tastes (on nitro) of chocolate, roasted malts, light oatmeal and very light coffee. Creamy body.

Sampled on tap. It poured to a thick, permantly lasting tan rocky/creamy head atop a dark black body. The flavor is like a dry stout. Very dry, malty, grass hops, chocolate. Meek, but good. The aroma is weak, non-existent at most. Light chocolate, light grass hop. Barely there. The palate is rich, full, creamy. Overall, not bad, just not a "big beer". ahole (38) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Pretty good stout. Very dark, with a stong creamy light brown head. I can’t really comment on the smell due to a terrible cold...also my taste senses are slightly dulled, but that didn’t keep me from enjoying this one. The was a strong bitter bite that lingered only a few seconds to finish quite dry. Roasted malt and chocolate hit me most. Just thick enough for stout. Best thing is that it is named for one of the best card games that more than 99.9% of the world just doesn’t get, and of the select that do, 99.9% of are terrible at it. Learn/master the game, then try the beer again...you’ll have a new appreciation for it. jkane (21) - USA - MAY 19, 2005
Both times I’ve tried this beer, it has been on the sour side. Maybe it’s because I get there early and get the first glass of the day. It’s an OK beer. I just wouldn’t go out of my way to get one. balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - MAR 19, 2005
This is a solid stout...very dark brown color with a big creamy tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with a taste to match...it was a great beer for St. Patty’s day accompanied by some great music. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2005
dark in color w/ a thick creamy tan nitro head that laced nicely.scent of light roasted malts and bitter chocolate.. the palate was light creamy a bit dry (dry stout) w/ no carbonation. The flavor was a bit weak, lightly malty.. a touch of oatmeal.. not bad but it felt lacking as a whole.
