From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass.
Old Chub pours a burgundy brown color that allows a bit of light to pass through it with a ruby tint. A frothy eggshell cap rests on top before gradually fading to a ring,
There is just a light sweetness to the aroma. Softly sweet caramel and brown sugar stay mostly behind a generally malt presence. Some dark fruit and peat round out the aroma.
The flavor is consistent and balanced all the way through. A strong malt presence brings in a light caramel sweetness, some cocoa, dark fruits, and a touch of smokey peat. The flavor gets a light bitterness as the flavor progresses, giving it a gentle balance.
The mouthfeel is about where I want it to be in a Scotch Ale. The 8.0% ABV gives it enough heft, while the smooth and creamy carbonation works well with the flavor.
A solid Scoth Ale overall.
