Here we have Old dubh by Harviestoun standing at 8%
I have had a Harvieston before, it was actually last years finally (31st) bottle but due to reasons I couldnt blog it properly, well at all really
So this is a little bit of a tibute to it. plus it was picked tonight by a friend (named Ryan) over here tonight.
By the way his review is decent for a cask ale, compared to the rubbish that tries to sell itself based on being a cask flavour. But the cask flavour overpowers the other flavours it could possibly have. Wouldnt get again really
Its very dark, not that oily actually and really smells of whiskey barrels. Theres not much else to it really. Pleasant yes but for a so called reserve beer it nothing special. If anything the whiskey tastes completely kill any sort of enjoyable beer flavours. Even the aroma is the same story.
If you want to buy whiskey buy whiskey. If you want to buy dark beer buy dark beer.
