3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at the Ginger Man. The mere thought of drinking something this thick out of a can has always been morally and philosophically troubling to me, but this was all worth it. Like I said, it’s a very viscous beer, with considerable carbonation, which gives it a very unsubtle mouthfeel, in a good way. The aroma is very malty, almost syrupy, with molasses, fudge, a bit of chocolate, a bit of roast, and lots of booze. The taste is mainly sweet, with a slightly bitter sensation lingering, and again, a very boozy feel. It’s really the kind of stuff you hate to think about the morning after, but really, who cares?

Brown color with small white head. Aroma of malts and caramel, a bit earthy. Malts, bitter feeling. Dry nitro stout feeling. Very different!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet toffee and chocolate, not too pronounced. Appearance is dark brown ruby red with small tan head. Taste is sweet malt forward, some toffee caramel plum followed by some chocolate roast and a hint of smoke comes lingering in at the end. Palate is fairly full but sweetness lays a little flat on the tongue. Rich but not cloying, little to no alcohol heat. Overall a pretty good beer. It works but nothing amazing. A beer this big needs to leave more of an impression.

Can from Wine and Cheese Place (Rock Hill MO). Aroma is roasted malts with yeasty dough. Appearance is dark brown, like a really dark root beer or cola, with 2-finger frothy beige head and attractive lacing. Taste is rich roasted moderate malt sweetness, with hints of liquor. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation that supports the taste but doesn’t compete with it and moderately sweet finish. Overall, a deeply satisfying beer without mystery but very good at what it is.

Oskar Blues has a fine ’Wee Heavy here!! Nice thick head when poured out of the can. Aroma is that of a roasted Otter Maris malt, brown sugar and peet moss: that’s the smell one wants with this style. It has a bite to it when tasted and on the palate. Not too harsh, but has quite ABV. Syrupy malts on the finish. Again typical of the scotch ale style. It’s a winner! And to think: this is from a can. Imagine if it was bottle conditioned??!! Recommended for sure! Slainte!

One of my all time faves, Chub is smoky, earthy, peaty and malty all at once. Thick bodied, but not viscous, this is a meal in a can, and needs a strong red meat to stand up to it. Caramel and molasses notes mingle with woody smoked notes. Looks great as well, sporting a towering tan head and oodles of lacing. For the malt aficionado only, hops server only to balance...barely. Put a chubby in your mouth.
