Harviestoun Old Engine Oil is an English Porter which the Scottish brewery crafts with pale malts, roasted barley, oats, and Washington Galena, Worcester Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops. The recipe for this porter is derived from a 1970s homebrewing recipe. At 6% ABV, this is an easy porter sip, and it pours out black with a tall tan head that retains and laces the glass. The nose of this porter offers roasted chocolate malts, coffee and molasses. The taste follows the nose, bringing cocoa, malts, coffee, and bitter hops in a good balance. Old Engine Oil has a big body and a sticky finish, with mild carbonation. Look for Harviestoun Old Engine Oil all year long in bottles, growlers, casks, and on-tap. We like to sip this English Porter from a pint glass, tumbler, mug, or stein at 50-55�F. Porters pair well with barbecue and Latin American dinners, and with earthy cheeses.
