Harviestoun Ola Dubh 21 Year Old
Style: Old Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
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.
Aged in casks that previously held 21 year old Highland Park Whiskey, the beer produces a wooden, sweet flavour with bitter chocolate, smoked peat moss and a touch of vanilla.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
The smoothest and blackest smokiest beer I've ever had the pleasure to drink. I've had plenty of whisky aged beers but this takes the cake!
