Beer of the Month: February

Skull Splitter

Orkney Brewery's Skull Splitter Ale is one of the best Scotch Ales around. It comes in a four pack and packs about a 8.5% punch. It pours a bit thick with an inch plus of bright white head but you'll find a nice amount of bubbles still flowing to the top as you drink it. It's beautiful dark red body goes down smooth and smells sweet like caramel and butterscotch. It doesn't go to too much trouble to hide its power though. Be kind and don't drink too many of these beastly beers. It's called Skull Splitter for a reason and that badass on the bottle doesn't pity no fools. But damn if it isn't one of the best beers around. Tasty. Keeps you warm on the cold February nights. In fact, it's so good that it completely makes up for me missing January's Beer of the Month. It's true.
