Dark Island: a winner in winter

Dark Island
Dark Island, from the formerly independent Orkney Brewery (now operated by Sinclair Breweries group), has been anointed the Champion Winter Beer of Scotland.

At 4.6 per cent alcohol by volume (abv), Dark Island has long been a 'small beer' import personal favorite. I think of it as a dark red ale with a distinctive toasted nut flavor.

Caveat lector: Dark Island is imported in the USA by Legends, Ltd, by whom, at one time, I was employed.

  1. If you can get your hand on the Dark Island Reserve, aged in whiskey casks, you are really on to something!
