What have they done with shandon stout! 8 years 3 months ago #1

Fell in love with shandon stout last year, was only to be topped by their barrel aged one imo. Ive had 3 pints of it on separate nights in different places in dublin over the last few weeks and it isnt the same at all and not very nice (some strange tang to it).

I might have thought it was just me but my friend expressed the same opinion as me before i mentioned it. He having drank several of them in cork during a visit their a few weeks ago which included a pint in the well itself!

Explantions? Bad batch? New recipe? Damn coors???

a few of us were having the same discussion on saturday after been down at the well, it does seem to have changed. i could not put my finger on it but i had had a few hoppy ones before that but do remember it being very nice as recent as a few months ago

Real shame, tasted like a nightclub guinness!

Was so happy that it was now being served on draught up here but now <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( -->

Not always. I had it on cask in the bull and castle and it was the best beer I have ever had on cask and is my current benchmark as to how good beer can be on cask.

I would personally be pretty disappointed if the recipe has been compromised but I will reserve judgement until I taste it myself.

oh yes that cask was amazing too, but i equally loved the draught version. maybe not the recipe but the execution has changed. They are still brewing at the same spot and the same brewer afaik?
