I'm not sure where the name comes from, but it may be a reference to the Schuylkill River. The origin of the name is still clouded but it may come from the Dutch schuylen-kill, "hidden creek." The Swedes, who originally made note of the river while searching along the Delaware for a place to settle called it "Skierkillen" or "Skol Kill" which means "hidden river" or "hidden water".
Its deep mahogany body reveals clear highlights of chestnut, crimson, and ruby when held to the light. Its short head of tan foam is short lived, but it does leaves some splashes of lace at the outset of the glass. The nose is cocoaish with a note of sharp fruitiness and some citrusy/floral hops. The medium-light body is gently crisp on the tongue before warming to become smooth at the swallow. In the flavor a berry-like fruitiness with a touch of tartness (citrusy hops perhaps? or something else?) wrapped in a soft chocolate and caramel maltiness. It finishes dry with some residual acidity, fruitiness, and lingering cocoa. It's definitely interesting, and I think that this beer might have some hidden history to it as well. Is it possible that this is in part based on their recent Oud Bruin?
