Orkney Skull Splitter

Orkney Skull Splitter has sweet caramel and toffee flavors

Skull Splitter ranks among the strongest of Scottish Ales, which are sometimes called "Wee Heavy," a style that is rich and flavorful beyond compare.

In the Scottish brewing tradition, the sweet, malty 'wort' is given an extra-long boil before fermentation. The sugary liquid caramelizes at the bottom of the kettle, providing the toffee-like flavor that is such a distinctive feature of Scotland's ales. Orkney is one of the region's brewing leaders, and this beer has introduced international beer lovers to this unique style. Copper-colored, this viscous brew projects exotic yeasty aromas reminiscent of melted bleu cheese. On the palate, sweet caramel flavors are enriched and accented with smoky peated malt. Skull Splitter is a snifter-worthy beer to serve in small portions, lest the name becomes reality.
