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.
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Interesting brown ale. Tastes like scotch whiskey before distillation... or at least that is what it seemed like. Nice change from hoppy IPAs, stouts and pale ales. zoucrew102 (2240) - - JAN 14, 2018
Can. Caramel malt aroma with notes of chocolate, roasted malt and smoke. Pours dark caramel colored with a thin light brown head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with caramel and chocolate malt sweetness. Finishes smooth with roasted malt and smoky flavors. Pretty nice scotch ale. jhsnitz1 (43) - Central, South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Nice brown color with a thick head of foam. Not too sweet and not too bitter, balanced flavor. Could not taste any smokiness as in the description. ALIBALI (2694) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2018

Pours dark, caramelly brown. Good , stable, off white, bit fluffy head. Some lacing . Smell is bit complex, toffee, cocoa ( not roasty !) Bit creamy. Taste is creamy, bit slick ( mild diacetyl is appropriate in style though ) highly aromatic. Toffee, mild bitterness. Minor caramelly notes. Creamy mf , medium thick. Low to medium low carbo.alcohol is very hidden, clean fermentation profile. No hoparoma. humpah (379) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2017
0,355l can from Beer Republic. Pours dark brown color with medium head. Aroma of rich maltness, slightly roasted, and sweetness in chocolate, vanilla, syrup and bourbonish tones, and slight fruitiness and wood. Taste is mostly in line with aroma, a bit complex maltiness and sweetness, with a bit of bitterness to back it up. Slight smokiness that reminds me of whiskey now that I read of it, especially in the aftertaste. Duugh (7) - - DEC 7, 2017 does not count
Old chub is the first and only scotch ale I’ve ever tried. Remind me of a porter. Thick maltey and dark it’s a beer that you would only want to drink one or maybe two of

Malty, caramel, light vanilla, some chocolate, surprisingly fruity, good complexity, tasty, well balanced, not too sweet as feared. Didn't notice the smoke. Light, grainy aftertaste. balloonbuffoon (747) - - NOV 18, 2017
12floz, COD: 10.25.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. 'Ppears chestnut brown with a mighty foam. T'is here foam leaves its film behind as I consumeth. A lil' aroma gives off a general mild roasted character. Notable features are th' walnut and gently burnt (toasted) bread flavors. D'cent full bodied 'merican scotch ale, though I prefer the creaminess of the nitro. Unfortunately, it ain't been 'round these parts for quite some time. D'pendin' on the mood t'is could be be a l'il more favorable, or much less so like in the summer.
