Old Engine Oil - Harviestoun (Scotland) 6.0%

Old Engine Oil - Harviestoun (Scotland) 6.0%

Opaque and black with a nice tan coloured head of foam. The aroma is of coffee, dark bitter chocolate with some smoky wood tones, hints of hops and a bit of caramel. A lovely complicated tasting beer: hops with some alcohol initially, milk chocolate and sweetened coffee with cream then a caramel finish and finally a coffee then dark, dark chocolate aftertaste. An exceptionally nice porter, exquisitely balanced and full of flavour.
