kaziopiwosz (384) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, - OCT 1, 2012
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!

radassace (183) - SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a very dark mahogany with a lasting tan head. Nose is roasted malt, honey, dark Christmas cake fruits, floral hops and some chocolate. Smooth beer, cross between a red ale and a porter. Dark, bitter, fruity and sweet. Lovely.

Probably from Dobbies, February 2016. Dark ruby with a narrowing beige foam. Thin gruel atop a Black Grouse with little dabs of brittle burnt paper and charcoal character. Nose of rust, liquorice and bramble. More of a rusty schwarz than a stout. Its OK.

JoTheO (166) - 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...
