Skye - Black

WP_20160328_18_12_26_ProWhat they say: “The colour comes from dark roasted barley, balanced with just the right amount of sweet, rolled oatmeal. We mill both right here in the brewery, giving us complete control over flavour and freshness. The true taste of malt shines through, balanced by the sweetness of pure Scottish heather honey.”

Yes, just a slight deviation from the Yorkshire ale trail whilst we were staying in Ripon during our recent Easter break. The reason being that I spotted this in Booths and know some friends that really enjoy their caravan trips to Skye, and yes the name appealed too.

Anyway, explanation aside, I really enjoyed this. I loved the combination of flavours - I could really get into black ales if they’re going to taste as good as this.
