the bottle includes the following tasting notes:
A rich chocolate stout with subtle hints of coffee and orange.
as well as a brief summary of what silkies/selkies are:
Silkies (or selkies) are mythological creatures found in Scottish folklore. Silkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land to find a loved one. The word derives from earlier Scots selich meaning seal.
personally i think it’d be better if the bottle had an actual seal-person on it instead of your uncle’s new ‘friend’ he met at Sturgis.
chocolate-y with a really nice fresh nose, exhaling after a sip is actually very fresh and fruity. the bottle says orange but I dunno if I’d call it that, or at the very least it’s not ‘chocolate orange’. Like twizzlers almost? But also not cherry exactly. Just a very neat sweetness under your tongue. Lingering flavors of coffee and chocolate but with an emphasis on their berry qualities.
The texture is nice/fine for the flavors, not too heavy or thick and with a nice but not creamy head. Seriously this sweet flavor is so nice it’s killing me i don’t have a better vocabulary to describe it. all in all i really like this for a generally-drinking stout because it’s light enough to drink whenever (instead of like, after dinner or with dessert or something). 4/5
