Elsa's, Cambridge, England

August 22, 2011. Harviestoun Brewery Ltd, Old Engine Oil Porter. Purchased in Edinburgh.

February 4-ish, 2012. Harviestoun Brewery Ltd, Old Engine Oil Black Ale. At La Paz, Seattle.

I'm fairly sure these are the same beer, so they're counting as one, but very confusingly named. It is called "Dark Beer" on the Harviestoun website. No clue what's going on there. Maybe an export thing? But then why is the website one Dark Beer? Who knows, but this might explain why the guy at the Mill Road Bacchanalia was so snooty when I called it a porter.
