4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of raisins, toasted malts, cocoa. Drank from can, appearance is irrelevant to me anyway. Taste is light to medium bitter from what tastes like patent and smoked malts, some sweetness as it warms and at the back. Light smoky taste. Some cocoa and nutty notes as well. Carbonation is soft, texture is oily and creamy, body is medium to full, has a decently long and lightly bitter finish. Overall an excellent beer, one I will be having a good amount of in the future. Had this on tap as well and seemed like there was a woody note in it.

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

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.

From draft, on nitro. Poured a murky dark brown, nearly black with a thin tan head. The aroma is strong malts. Taste was like molasses, rich with toffee malts, very smooth from the nitro and sweet finish. Very smooth.

12 oz can pours dark semi translucent brown with a tan head. Aroma is toasty and smokey sweet malts. Flavor is similar with lots of caramel. Smooth finish, not much after taste. Good beer.

Low aroma on a dark pour with some ruby highlights in the color. Surprisingly smooth, roasted & chocolate flavors with some stout like qualities. Very high drinkability & well hidden ABV even when drinking this at cellar temperature.
