Old Chub is a Scottish style ale brewed with copious amounts of crystal and chocolate malts, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malts. While Dale's Pale Ale ("the best-tasting canned beer I've ever had," according to many brewers and beer experts) is a showcase of both hops and pale malts, Old Chub is a celebration of malts. The cola-colored beer features a dense, tawny head, a creamy mouthful and flavors of caramel, chocolate and lightly roasted malt. Complex and rich, it finishes with a whisper of smokiness that calls to mind a fine single malt scotch. Old Chub weighs in at 8 % alcohol by volume.

Love wee heavies and heard good things about oskar. Nice wiff, all the scotchiness is present and accounted for. Beautiful deep brown with obligatory thin, lacy head. Flavours are all there, delightful touch of peat behind the toffee goodness, but the mouthfeel doesnt back it up. Nice lightly bitter finish rounds out a very drinkable, but not chart topping, bevvie.

kaserov (486) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 29, 2017
Color Coca-Cola, rojizo si le da la luz, opaco, con capa de espuma amarronada de tres o cuatro dedos de grosor (muy cremosa, estilo caf, y de buena retencin). Carbonatacin alta (no tan presente en boca). Cuerpo medio, como si fuera aceite meloso. En nariz hay caramelo, malta tostada, cacao, avellana, lpulo y un ligero ahumado fcil de percibir. En boca es primero dulzona, destacando el cacao y el caramelo, posteriormente un ligero toque de lpulo ayuda a refrescar y al tragarla hacen presencia las avellanas y el ahumado. En postgusto queda un sabor a avellanas y a humo que invita a pasar la lengua por las paredes de la boca y el paladar repetidas veces. Compleja, sabrosa y de lo mejor que he probado de Oskar Blues (brewery para la historia) junto con la Death by Coconut. An no tengo muy claro qu es una Scotch Ale pero si las dems son mnimamente similares puede convertirse en un estilo que siga con verdadero inters.

Very dark brown with thin lasting head. Aroma has lots of sweet malts. Flavour is similar but also with a light peppery spiciness.

Can at home. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Caramel, roasted malts, dark fruits, smoke, charred wood, orange, fruity chocolate, molasses, cocoa. So many flavors but a bit heavy on the palate. Slightly over carbonated as well.

Obfita, średnio trwała piana. Barwa brązowo herbaciana, klarowna. Aromat delikatny, karmelowy, orzechowy, delikatnie wędzony w ogniskowy sposb. W smaku płsłodkie, karmelowe, z nutkami Werthers Original, kakao i orzechw laskowych, wędzonka daleko w tyle. Goryczka nieduża, tytoniowa, lekko palona. Lekko cierpkie, średnio wysycone, nie gęste i nieźle pijalne w odbiorze.
Całkiem ciekawa odskocznia od RISw czy IPA, aczkolwiek dość mdłe na dłuższą metę, do najlepszych w mojej opinii piw w tym stylu wciąż daleko (Dark Horse Scotty Karate i Blue Mountain - MacHaydens Wee Heavy).

On tap at the Boardroom in FWB. They didnt 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.

BlazerT (946) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 16, 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.
