Cask at The Standing Order as Skye Black. Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of light chocolate, dark fruit. Taste is more of the same. Finishes a touch sweet. OK.

Alengrin (2928) - 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.

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.

This wakens up the taste buds. Dark and smoky. Dark fruits. Licorice and a hint of nut. Log fire, malt whisky and a glass of this would be Scottish heaven.

GSAP (546) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Hout, krenten, licht koffie en sherry in aroma. Smaak begint met koffie en pruim, licht rokerig. Nadronk iets waterig, maar nasmaak is lang en kruidig. Beetje ice tea achtig overall.

Heel donker van kleur en een goede crêmige kraag. Ruikt goed, likeurachtig, smaak donkermoutig, koffie, chocolade. Beetje waterig.

ManVsBeer (5283) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Very dark red, has a bubbly head that disappears. It has a lovely smooth medium bodied texture that includes a mix of light roasted malt and a light sweetness.

MrHangover (3055) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, shared by jmgreenuk. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma of caramel, molasses, red fruits and roasted malts. Flavor is quite thin, light caramel sweetness and some very faint sourness in the background. Short aftertaste and very easy drinkable. Classic example of the style. Porter 101. Very cool label btw!
