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.

Bottle on Skye. Clear deep red with a small beige head. Aroma of light roast mal notes, honey, some toasted malt. Flavour is roast malt, sweet berry notes, some honey. Nice balance between the roast malt and sweetness. Little bitter kick into the finish.

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 (3221) - 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.

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2014
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.

jamestulloch (2115) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2014
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.
