500ml bottle as Skye Black. More dark brown than black. Aroma is caramel, honey, coffee & fruit. The taste is similar with medium sweetness and light bitterness with a little sourness on the finish. Quite complex flavours, a little watery on the palate. Very good though. radassace (298) - SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2017

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. It’s OK.
