Thick sweet malty low carbonatated creamy scottish great for sipping. Now if that isn’t a great run-on of adjectives I don’t know what is.

I prefer the Orkney Skullsplitter, personally. Decent flavor and very complex. A bit bitter. Strong and very malty.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought in 1985 and hidden in my cellar all those years. Alc % on the label: 6%. Overwhelming porto aroma. Carbonation has almost disappeared. Porto taste with blackcurrant, raisins and pure chocolate. A bit metallic and buttery aftertaste. A very special beer that has survived 17 years of storage under less than ideal circumstances well.

Ruby colour with disappearing head. The taste is very complex: it's malty, with light traces of caramel and wine flavour and it's a bit salty. Very particular, but not really my favourite beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is soy, raisin, and roasted malt. The appearance is a red brown with a small head. The flavor is the strength of this beer. Plenty of alcohol with vanilla, well roasted malt, caramel, oak, and some bitterness. The palate is smooth and the finish is lightly bitter and very similar to scotch. Nice

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clougy red\brown with a quick disipating short tan head. Nose of brown sugar, raisin, tart and lightly sweet with a good dose of spice. Some berries. Palate at points allows the alcohol and harshness to show a little strong. Finish is warming and in the end the beer is essentially balanced despite some flaws eminating from the centre.
