gegwilson (1466) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Cask in the Bon Accord, Glasgow as Skye Black. Pours mahogany with a thin cream head. A little sharpness to begin with before some roasty flavour. May have been past its best.

Bottle from Drinkmonger. Clear amber/brown body with a thin beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of filter coffee, roasted malt and fig. Flavour of biscuit, stewed tea and a metallic, coppery finish. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Not bad, but spoiled slight by a sour finish.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Scottish ale named after the mountains on the Isley of Skye and spiced with heather honey. Light beige, sticky, collapsing but stable head, colour a nice warm bronze with ruby red glow, clear. Nose gets freshly ground coffee, bitter chocolate, raisins, liquorice, tobacco, honey, biscuit, but hardly any honey. Taste a bit neutral at first, mineral-like, some dried fruit, thinnish mouthfeel, smooth and supple, nutty maltiness, quickly becoming more roastedly bitter, ending mellow and coffee-like, dry with spicy hoppy notes. Starts a bit disappointing but gets better towards the end - I guess this is better than the other way around.

Godfather50 (74) - SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Probably taken in the wrong season. Hot July! Burnt chocolate malt with little hob. Oats ans honey should have lent soft body to this porter, but I found it thin. Not really my style with low hopping and no pazaz. Bottle supplied by Ann and Neil.
