Country: Scotland

Style: Old Ale

Format: 330ml Bottle

ABV: 8%

Ola Dubh (or 'Black Oil') is a collaboration between Harviestoun Brewery and Highland Park Distillery. It is based on Harviestoun's award-winning Old Engine Oil. With more than a stylistic nod to the classic Imperial Porters (and Stouts) of the nineteenth century, this deliciously rich, dark, 8% ABV beer is the first ale to be aged in malt whisky casks from a named distillery and, with traceable casks and numbered bottles, the first with genuine provenance. 

Ola Dubh 16 pours out jet black, with a small mocha-coloured head. There's plenty to enjoy on the nose which is a classy blend of whisky, sweet roasted malts, earthy woodland and vanilla. The flavour is rich; loaded with sweet-roasted dark malts and coffee. And just at the finish there's nice, smoky peat hints with just a touch more bourbon than the 12.

  1. 5 Star Review Out of a Scottish Winters night

    This 10th Beer I’ve tried before - love it, you would too Neil.
    A beer from Scotland.
    Harviestoun Ola Dubh (Black Oil) 16 year old.
    Dark, thick, oily looking, has been aged in whisky barrels that once contained Highland Park, Peaty single malt.
    I get a real vegemite smell. Smooth, carbonated taste of malt with hints of whisky. At 8%, this is one of my favs

  2. 5 Star Review Excellent

    A rich, rewarding sipper, well worth the little bit extra money. I used buy this one by the case to give away as presents to lucky friends and family. Woody, dark coffee notes, with a pleasant bitterness rounded out by the barrel aging.
