Harviestoun Brewery Ltd.
Ken Brooker spent a lot of time working on cars. The viscous nature of this beer reminded Ken of car engine oil, so he named it after his second love, the internal combustion engine.
Appearance – Black with a caramel lining. 1 finger head that quickly reduces to little bubbles.
Smell – Slight chocolate. A little caramel and coffee. Good malts.
Taste – Not as sweet as it smells. Good booze sting. Bitterness is balanced by the malts.
Mouth Feel – Not as thick as it is described. Foams a lot in the mouth, leaves a pleasant after taste.
Drinkability – Fairly medium bodied. It was enjoyable but not something I would drink often.
