3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
There’s a slight aroma of peat and smoke. Pours a clear ruby-red with just a thin off-white head. This is a very sweet beer, with the malts dominating everything else. There’s some caramel, some fruity notes, and a lingering sweet finish. The alcohol is very well hidden. Not my favorite style, but this is a drinkable beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours a dark cola color from can. Creamy thick long-lasting tan head with nice lacing. Aroma roast malt, dark fruit, and toffee. Mouth feel medium to full with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet roasty malt, burnt sugar, slight smokiness with a slight English hoppiness. Finish is a bit of smoky burbon and bit of grassy hops. I like it...I like it a lot!

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

Old chub is a great can of beer the color is fantastic and the string Scottish ale taste is great. You know you have a strong beer when the after it lingers and this has that effect Great beer I would recommend to all
