Consistent with the core Ola Dubh range, the 1991 Vintage is deep dark brown, dense and oily; the nose is redolent of soy and molasses with winey overtones and a gentle, earthy, hop aroma. The 1991 Vintage is somewhat sweeter than its counterparts and has delicious smoky-sherry notes on the palate, the flavours deriving at least as much from the whisky-infused-wood as the spirit itself. As expected from its higher strength, this is a bigger and bolder number than its siblings.

Bottle from sheffield tap. Pours like dark brown oil with a short lived tan head. Aroma is peaty smoky whisky, oaky wood and soy. Taste is sweet and spicy with alcohol, finishes with an ashy dry bitterness that makes you immediately want another sip. Thick and oily with subtle carbonation. Probably the best beer I’ve ever tasted.
