Harviestoun Ola Dubh Reserve 12
An Idle Hands "identity beer"
When the world of bourbons is crossed with that craft beers, our panties get into a bunch. I like to refer to this 2 world’s colliding phenomenon as an Idle Hands “identity beer.”
HARVIESTOUN OLA DUBH RESERVE 12
- Old Ale
- 8.0% ABV
- Central Scotland
THEY SAY: Aged in selected oak casks, formerly used to mature Highland Park’s beautifully balanced 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Appearance: A dense, bituminous, oily brown with a gentle tan-colored, espresso-like head.
Aroma: Appeasing toasted cereal notes underscore the general tartness of dried fruits.
Palate: Immediate, cleansing bitter hops are reinforced by richly toasted malts; finely balanced with raspberry coulis-like acidity.
REV SAYS: If bacon could be a beer, this would be it. I tastes like a BBQ pit smells.
