BLACK SHEEP BREWERY
BLACK SHEEP ALE
Review by Andy
BLACK SHEEP SAYS…
Our second ever beer. A complex, premium bitter.
Back in the day, Best Bitter was lonely, it needed a companion. We knew we needed a quality, premium strength beer that would stand alongside our cracking session Bitter… we present to you, Black Sheep Ale.
Black Sheep Special Ale is a powerfully flavoured pint that packs a punch with rich fruit aromas and a distinctively smooth, bittersweet taste. As well as the popular cask version, we started bottling this in 1993 and today it is one of the best-selling bottled beers nationally; available in all major supermarkets!
This looks a full bodied and lovely looking coppery colour when poured with a nice head, just about the perfect pint appearance wise.
A very standard bitter aroma, hints of chocolate to the taste maybe caramel in there, with some earthy/woody tones in too, leaving a bitter sweet taste, which is more that palatable.
