So far it’s the best beer according to price/value that I was able to find in Cork. And I think that it’s very popular - today is the first day for the two weeks when I saw it in Aldi among other O’Sheas ales.
This is what guinness stout should be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Aldi, Carrick-on-Shannon 
Black, frothy bubbly tan head, good lacing
Aroma og soft dark malts, smooth mellow roast, touch of dark toffee, soft coffee, mocha notes
Taste of dark quite rich malts, more roast but still mellow, dark bitter chocolate, soft coffee, sweet dark malts, dark chocolate malts, tasty
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, smooth, good mouthfeel, soft sweet. Finish of smooth dark chocolate malts, some soft roast
Overall - Best of the O’Shea’s bunch. Better than O’Hara’s Irish Stout. Sort of a lower abv version of Leann Follain. Good stuff.
PS Did have some more 2 weeks later, not quite as good, more burnt bitter finish and a little rough (3.3), but will try again soon
