Light bitter taste with an excellent honey nute in palate. White and thin foam stays for 90 seconds. Dark-caramel, somewhat blacky colour. Really good beer, worth trying!

JoTheO (112) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle 500ml. New batch only called Skye Black. Deep brown with a reddish tint. Sweet aroma with some malts. Soft carbonation and somewhat creamy. Taste is oaty and bready, but it has some really unpleasant metallic notes. Not a huge fan of this, it feels as if you bite your lip really hard...

Stoned99 (1238) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Best by Jan 2016 500 bottle, gift from trade a while ago... Aroma: aroma of burnt caramel, chocolate, a tad smokey. App: dark burgundy, some big bubbles all around the glass and a minimal foam in the middle. Taste and palate: light to medium body, a tad watery, medium sweetness, sticky, light bitter finish. Overall: aroma ainít that bad, unfortunately itís watery thus ruins the experience. Still drinkable and if I would be offered this one by a friend I would drink it without a problem but itís not something I would buy.
