Celebration Ale (Black Sheep)

Celebration Ale (Black Sheep)
Name: Celebration Ale
Label: "A rich, dark winter warmer - Deep & smoky with port-wine notes - Rich chocolate & raisin finish - Head brewer Alan Dunn"
Brewery: Brewed for Sainsbury's by Black Sheep Brewery
ABV: 6.0%

Rating: "A dark, velvety stout with a complex chocolate and spice finish. Beautifully balanced with sweet raisin notes. Drink with rich venison dishes or chocolate desserts." A dark winter warmer in May? Yes! Because it's still cold outside for some reason. Celebration? Yes! Because it's a bank holiday and there's no work tomorrow!

Game: After one of the longest epilogues ever, The Witcher 2 finally comes to a close.  It may sound slightly grandiose, but storytelling finally comes of age on consoles. The Witcher 3 is surely to be released on next-gen consoles and I'm expecting incredible things both graphically and in terms of yarn weaving. But for now it's back to Skyrim for me. Nothing beats going back to Skyrim. It's like putting on a pair of comfy old slippers, your warm woolly jumper or your favourite dragon-bone armour.

Congratulations on completing Witcher2!!! :)

I'm moving at a snails pace.. I may even retire to the forest outside Flotsam...

And now that you mention it, I'm gonna need a fresh carrot if I'm heading back to Skyrim..

Thanks!! I just couldn't seem to play anything else besides Witcher but still took about three weeks solid!

Yeah help yourself to carrots, I've got loads. They're in a chest in the back (I've lost the key but theres some lockpicks on the shelf).
