Harviestoun Old Engine Oil Engineer’s Reserve has a very thick, dark beige head, with a soapy top, lots of lacing left behind, and an absolutely black appearance. The aroma is strong and pungent: rich, sweet, dark-roasted malt, black cherry, chocolate powder, burnt sugar, and even a slight vegetable smell. Taste is of all those with a hefty bitterness to compliment the sweetness. Mouthfeel is heavy and viscous, and Harviestoun Old Engine Oil Engineer’s Reserve finishes dry, rich, somewhat powdery, heavy, smooth, and delicious. Overall, this is a wonderful beer!

Pours a two finger tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Mellow chocolate nose and flavor is malty chocolate. Finish is bitter chocolate. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.49 for a 330ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.
