Default I think I have a new favorite commercial brew

I'd seen Old Chub around before but couldn't bring myself to pay more than a buck each for canned beers. Plus, I needed bottles for homebrew.

A few weeks back I saw that the local Flying Saucer had Old Chub on draft, and it was listed as a Scottish Ale. This being one of my favorite styles I figured I should try it out. Boy was I surprised when the beer goddess brought a glass the color of a good porter. After the first sip I knew that great beer does come in cans, if not often.

It's a wonderfully roasty, chocolatey beer with a hint of smoke and the caramel notes I love about Scottish Export. Plus, it's 8% ABV. I love this stuff!

Anyone have a clone recipe?

I have my own recipe for that one. It doesn't involve boiling water or 6 weeks of waiting patiently.
