4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can. Saw a six-pack of cans I didn’t recognize for $10.29. Looked it up on RateBeer, and the 97 score and some of the top ratings sold me. The smell is very mild, with hints of chocolate and coffee. It pours dark brown, and the tan head dissipated almost as soon as I poured it. This beer has a complex, heavy mouth feel. The taste follows the smell. It’s almost not carbonated at all.And I cannot believe this has alcohol in it. It’s so smooth. Would definitely buy again.

Deep red with white head. Caramel, spice and vanilla. Sweet, some tart and spicy finish. Overall: just okay.

Mindfuck: En tankevurpa ofta orsakad av en händelse som uppenbart borde vara på ett sätt men i slutet visar sig vara nåt helt annat, eventuellt att bli serverad briljant ale ur en burk som ser ut att vara designad av en försupen irländsk graffittimålare. Förlåt mig för mina fördomar, jag ska från och med nu med glädje svepa varje burk som passerar som om innehållet vore tillverkat för hand av gudfruktiga munkar klädda i gjutesäck.

This is complex little bugger, no doubt about it. I don’t know how to categorise it, it’s blowing my mind! Tasty, I’ll settle with tasty.

Pours dark, foamy, dense. Malt aromas dominate in this dense burnt oil beer, with a hint of vanilla, wood and coffee and chocolate. Heavy in the mouth, creamy chocolate, no alcohol yet. Great beer.

At the top of the can, "IT’S LIKE SPUTNIK"...What?...goofball marketing! Like my English mum would say about a "shaggy dog story" movie, Old Chub has a cute name but, man is it boring. Same with Ten Fedy, the chemical reaction created by using convenient aluminum cans could be responsible for the same hint of Ivory bar soap throughout the experience. A brown glass bottle old school option needs to be available. Other than that significant issue, Old Chub is underweight & is lacking ABV to my liking...I consider Old Chub the Miller Lite of Scottish Ales. Nothing unique here. No wonder it comes in 6-pack cans for lesser a price than Ten Fedy 4-packs which isn’t much better comparatively. I won’t try either again unless glass bottle option is made available to see if the Ivory bar soap is gone.

오스카 블루스 브루 - 올드 첩 스카치 에일 8% ABV 크리스탈-쵸콜& 몰트와 너도밤나무 훈연 몰트를 사용해 만들어진 스카치 에일. 니트로 게스가 주입되어 매우 크리미 하지만 상대적으로 농후한 맛은 떨어진다
확실히 니트로 게스의 서포트를 확실히 받으려면 러시안 임페리얼 스타우트 정도 되는 무게감이나 실제로 유성분이 포함된 밀크 스타우트 쯤 되야 균형이 맞는것 같다. 기네스 드레프트도 그렇고 거품이 맥주보다 더 중요한 역할을 하는 주객이 전도된 느낌

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
This beer gets a lot of love from craft beer enthusiasts, however I am not a huge fan of the flavor. I am not a huge Scotch Ale fan so that should be the simple answer. It has a great look and a nice caramel aroma. I love the other Oskar Blues brands but this is just above average for me.

355 ml can. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a red hue and a small, short lived, light brown head that laces. Sweet roasted malt aroma with caramel and alcohol. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, liquorice, dark chocolate and a hint of smoke with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent. I can’t believe this came out of a can!

On tap Brickhouse, Orlando. Very dark brown-black beer with a thick white head. What it lacks in aroma, it more than makes up for in taste. Rich and vineous, with lots of ripe plum and berry flavours, chocolate and brown sugar. The strength is very subtle, making for an almost too easy drinking beer. Long full-flavoured finish.

Can. Pours a dark reddish brown. Aroma and taste are malty toffee and very smooth.
