A delicious Scotch Ale brewed in Longmont, Colorado won a gold medal at both 2010’s and 2008’s World Beer Championships–and for very good reason. I love how this beer doesn’t skimp on the malt and it brings out hints of coffee and caramel provided by the roasted grain. I like what the folks at Oskar Blues Brewery have to say about this unique flavor:
While Dale’s satisfies our hop addiction, Old Chub takes care of our deep affections for malt. The cola-colored beer (almost black) features a tan head, a creamy, skim-milk mouthfeel, and rich, semi-sweet flavors of caramel and chocolate throughout. The addition of smoked grains gives Old Chub a delicate kiss of smoke on the finish. http://www.oskarblues.com/the-brews/old-chub
Try this beer out if you are looking looking to get out of light and bland flavored beers for a real dark beer with a great flavor combination. Oskar Blues also makes Dale’s Pale Ale and Yellow Mama Pils, which are also very tasty drinks.
