Cracked it open and poured it hard. Watched the head form from the depths and work its way through the beer. Nice creamy head. Nothing in the nose for me. Great creamy taste. Toffee, caramel, malt maybe. Not 100% sure. The flavors aren't overwhelming. Super smooth going down. I enjoyed this and it makes me look forward to regular old chub.


Wife's Review: "Mmmmm yummy. Creamy, smooth and delicious."

Appearance - dark mahogany color with a good layer of khaki head

Smell - caramel, toffee

Taste - caramel, toffee, peat, roasted malt

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth and creamy without it being watery

Overall - not sure if I enjoy this or the standard Old Chub more but this was certainly an enjoyable beer

Price Point - $2.80/ 16.9 oz can

Found this in a can

I'm a big fan of non-nitro Old Chub. Its a "go to" beer for me, and I was interested to try the Nitro version. I'll admit up front that I'm not sold on the "Nitro" concept. My impression is that the creaminess and mouthfeel enhancement that nitro adds comes at the expense of flavor; that is, nitro tends to "flatten out" a beer.

The pour, into one of those funky Sam Adam's glasses, was beautiful. The action of the cascading head and the falling out of the brew was a thing to behold. The head was thick and rich. Not much aroma to this stuff, though.

Very creamy taste and wonderful thick moutfeel, but the overall taste had flattened out from what I expect to find in an Old Chub. If I had never had the regular Chub, I'd probably be more or less satisfied with the Nitro version. Certainly, Old Chub Nitro is superior to Guinness with nitro cans, but I don't find it superior to non-nitro Old Chub.
