On tap at the Boardroom in FWB. They didn’t have a Porter or a Stout on tap so James recommended the Old Chub. Excellent beer with everything you look for in a dark beer. Reminded me of some great RIS. Dervock (1347) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2017

Bottle. Teku. Deep brown with moderate, light brown, semi-thick, frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderate to heavy malty aroma - some burnt caramel, roasted, chocolate, notes of smokiness. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet an slight to moderate bitter - average to long duration. Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is malty, sugarish. In overall not the best scotch ale I had. bergstaden (2982) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2017

On draft at the source. Pours dark reddish brown with a small off white head. Caramel, beachwood, very bitter dark chocolate. Average carbonation light mouthfeel. Satyroneto (379) - BRAZIL - JAN 14, 2017
Cor marrom escura com leve brilho rubi; presença de bom perlage mas pouco visível pela cor escura da cerveja; espuma bege de baixa/média formação com alta persistência e formação de bom lacing.
Aroma maltado de chocolate, frutas secas e nozes, além de um toque de madeira.
Sabor inicial de chocolate e frutas secas evoluindo para um final de levíssimo amargor amadeirado; retrogosto de madeira lembrando uísque escocês.
Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação. beer_rookie (566) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours a very dark brown color. About one finger or so tan colored head. Poor retention, slight lacing.oobawa (1405) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Aroma is strong, almost winey. Dark fruits, chocolate, wine.
Taste is winey. Very malty. Sticky sweet. Brown sugar. Caramel. A little alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel is heavy/full bodied. Sticky mouthfeel. It’s also slick and oily, almost like Nyquil. It costs the mouth and throat with stickiness. Alcohol burn. Interesting.
Overall, it’s pretty good. It’s good, but a little difficult to drink because if is so heavy. I like it, but it isn’t very drinkable. It’s a one and done. Or two and through. I’d probably recommend it, and I’d probably buy it again
So freakin’ dark for a Scotch ale, a heavy red-orange threatening to deepen into porter-ish brown. Tastes almost cola-sweet, starting with a blast of caramel floating over a whisky-tinged peat undercurrent. Essentially an endless malt pit, only gaining the mildest of bitterness to stave off cloying ugliness on the fade. Almost too one-sided, even for such a malt-centric style.
