About The Beer
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.
