3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body with a fluffy light brown head; Excellent aroma, the whisky is very well integrated as a full sharp background, in front of it there are layers of fruit, oak, caramel and chocolate malt notes, very good; Very pleasant body, very full velvet soft textured, very well balanced, slightly thin but it fit perfectly with the velvet softness, that could easily have become to much if the beer had been to chocolate full and sweet; It dies a little to fast in the finish, there are lots and long whiskey aromas but the fell of the beers disappears a little to fast. Very pleasant and I think the most drinkable of the 3 I have had.

Bottled. Pours black with a little, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, whiskey, spicy notes and a little smoke. Sweet flavor, that ends up more dry with a hint of bitterness. Soft carbonation, full bodied and oily texture. A very nice ale indeed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First crack of the bottle gives a really great peaty smell, I wish I got more of that after the initial. But I'm getting so much more on the palate than other beers, it's got great woodiness throughout and a delicate smoke across it. In terms if the porter itself, I tried the original "Old Engine Oil" years back, it was great, this softens the heavy
Fist of that old dog, and this gives it an extra element that I love.

Best of the Ola Dubh series I have had. Bit more sweetness and chocolate, still nice smokey peat but not as dry and boring as some of the higher numbered year ones. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost black beer. Very strange aroma, almost like some fish. Or this flu. Also smoke, oak, burnt sth, chocolate. Oily texture, smooth. Soft taste with burnt malts, chocolate, sweet whisky, dark fruits. A bit on sweet side but nice balance. Strange aroma but great taste.

As a non-fan of whisky, the first approach is difficult with this beer. Happily, the aroma is the only part that has something in common with whisky. The main taste is the one from the malt roasting.

Poured from a bottle, thanks Mike. This is a great stout. There is a strong smokey roasted malt presence. Woody and cocoa as well.
