3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am not a big whiskey guy, but I do love whiskey barrel aged beers. This is no different. Nice dark and viscous. Beautiful dark malt, smoke, and vanilla nose from the scotch. The taste is a nice harmony of beer and scotch, especially as it warms. Vanilla, dark bitter chocolate and that boozey smoke taste.

Very strong whisky nose, beautiful brown body. A perfect mix between beer and whisky aromas, very well balanced indeed. Could be a bit on the stout side, but overally very good!

A lot of whiskey in flavor and taste. Sweetness and strength, an interesting ale.

Bottle at home, 25th January 15. Pours dark, a little head. Aroma is smoke, whiskey, some leather. The taste is peat, whiskey, some chocolate and ash, palate is medium, not as luxurious as I imagined, feels a little light. Good beer and an easy sipper

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a very small beige head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Medium sweetness with a subtle bitter tones. Dark chocolate, raisin, coffee, caramel, peat, vanilla, spices and herbs. A great tasty brew! But not as good as the 21 year old version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is rich roast malt, peat, earthy, light alcohol. The flavour is strong to moderate bitter with a big dry roasty, peaty alcohol, coffee dark chocolate, light red berry fruit palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a light oily mouthfeel. The best Ola Dubh for me!

Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte. Dark brown/black colour, small layer of dark beige foam. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts with subtle aftertaste of whisky. Some notes of vanilla and berries. Very well balanced. Not boozy or over the top. Very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from bottle in Killeen Texas. Deep walnut with no head. Carries a heavy scotch flavor. Definitely good, and an experience worth your while, ola dubh is a unique smokey twist on beer that is not to be missed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle at home. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma is smoky peat, chocolate, whiskey, wood, dark fruit. The flavor has some roast, dark fruit, and chocolate with a big dose of peat and scotch whiskey, wood, not my thing really, but this is better than some scotch barrel beers.
