  1. 5 Star Review Skull Splitter

    This beer is in my family line,Thorfimn the Skull Splitter is folklore in our extended family. I first had this about 20 years ago after finding out about it. I visited the Orkney Brewery last year to pay homage. I used to be able to buy it here in Perth,anyway, it's strong, meaty and kicks butt,but smooth for its percentage,love it.

  2. 4 Star Review Don't be fooled, deceptively strong

    Impressive in smaller doses. Lighter of colour and taste than most in the scotch ale range. It's stronger than it tastes.

  3. 5 Star Review Not for the faint of heart.

    ....And definitely not a session beer. This is a special beer to be savoured the way it is brewed, in small batches. Very easy to drink as it does not taste like a very high strength beer.
