Can from hop hideout, sheffield. Dark red brown, short lived head. Aroma of strong malt and bready honey cereal. Taste is sweet with savoury and slightly sour notes. Slightly prickly with a medium body. Didn’t really enjoy this one.

Burk från privatimport. Mörkt kopparfärgad vätska med tjockt kaffefärgat skum. Doftar av kola, choklad och lite cigarr. Ljuvliga smaker av kaffe, choklad och karamellkola. Längst bak återfinns även en bra beska så sötman aldrig dominerar, välbalanserat. Värmande munkänsla, gräddig och med lång eftersmak. Sade jag att den var god också.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours dark mahogany with a good sized creamy beige somewhat lasting head that leaves good lacing. Weak aroma of roasted malt. Medium to heavy sweet, medium body, oily texture, medium bitter, soft carbonation, lots of rich malt and smoke leading to a lightly bitter and sugary sweet finish. Hides the alcohol very well.

On tap at Hubbard Inn. On nitro. Not much aroma to speak of, but it may just be me. Very smooth, outrageously malty. Chocolate and toffee. Very smooth. This is very good. I like the nitro. Like the beer too.

From the can, I have purchased several six packs of this over the past year but I always get too buzzed to leave a review, so now that I got a few off the singles shelf I get a chance to tell you about them. Definitely a celebration of malt, all malt, tasted the chocolate right from the start. Got the heat from the booze, sweetness is combated by some carbonation. If you like sweet and syrupy or just want to switch up your palate from all hops, this is the beer for you.

I had an Old Chub Nitro, I like the creamy foamy head on just about any beer. But underneath it was a bit watery and just seemed too sweet to really let all the flavors through. It is a very tame Scotch Ale, I prefer to be kicked in the teeth with a thick syrup of malts.
