12 oz can with no freshness date.

A- Deep brown hue with bright reddish highlights when held up to the light. The mild carbonation brings a thin but sticky lace.

S- Chocolate malted milk balls, so malty rich ... faintly cloying with a clean alcohol in the nose.

T&M- Full bodied, creamy smooth mouth feel. The palate is full of unsweetened chocolate, caramel and "Breakfast Blend" coffee. Big maltiness is matched by a slow warming alcohol that gleans a bit of spice. Ghost-like smokiness. Hops are mild or at least meek in comparison to the malt. Very rich with a sweet finish.

D- Very easy to sip, I still would not drink it out of the can ... a beer like this needs a glass no matter what. One of the most amazing beers in a can ... I'd easily have this beer around all of the time.

Canned 6/12/14

Pours dark coffee color brown with a bit of ruby red tint. One finger head dissipates quickly.

Smells of a little booze, toffee, and a bit of licorice.

Taste is dark malts with toffee and licorice. Same as the smell indicates. A little caramel sweetness and more bitter hops than I expected. Some brown sugar rounds out the sweet malts. All flavors blending together and nothing dominates. Bitterness fades into more sweetness halfway thru.

Moderate carbonation, sticky, and syrupy. Thick.

Pretty good scotch ale. One of the few I've had. nice malty brew.

A: Pours a dark brown with ruby hues. Decent-sized beige head comes up, looking very inviting.

S: Very malty and caramel, somewhat earthy. Very good.

T: Caramel predominates, but only somewhat sweet. The flavor is incredibly malty, with little hop effect. There is also some vanilla and maybe toffee and butterscotch. A very good flavor.

M: A little springy from the carbonation, but smooth.

O: A very great beer, and a solid example of the Wee Heavy style. Something of a staple for me. I always want to make sure there's some Old Chub in my fridge or supplies.
