16 oz can. Pours light reddish brown with a quick nitro cascade after the can exploded. It has a huge creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is more subdued than regular chub - sweet peaty caramel malts and some dark fruit with some chemical nitro.
The flavor is sweet peaty caramel malts and dark fruits with a nitro twang. The mouthfeel is creamy but watery like most nitro.
Overall, the nitro gimmick dumbs down the old chub. The widget helped the nitro head, but not much of a cascade and made it more subdued and watery.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Wood grain red with big nitro tan head.
Smell: Brown sugar, caramel and toffee.
Taste: Fairly sweet with brown sugar, chocolate, toffee and caramel. Not much peat or hops at all compared to the standard Old Chub. Lingering, off-putting aftertaste.
Feel: Thin, flat body - I don't like the nitro feel on this beer. Off dry finish.
Overall: Stick with the standard carbonation version.

Loved it. I hadn't seen Old Chub on Nitro before so I had to give it a taste. Hopefully Oskar Blues will make this beer available year around in CA because it's delicious!
Mouthfeel- Exactly the type of creamy mouthfeel that you would expect from a Nitro beer
Flavor- Toffee and Caramel
Appearance- Medium to dark brown with creamy head
Finish- Smooth and satisfying

Poured from a nitro 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a very dark and hazy brown with some ruby red. Lots of rising carbonation and a big three finger light tan head with very good retention. Leaves lots of creamy lacing.
Smell: A toasty, sweet, and smokey malt forward aroma with big hints of caramel malt, cream, and smoke. Upfront toasted barley malt with sweet hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, smoke, grains, chocolate, cream, nuts, and yeast. Also some hints of peat and wood with the smoke. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Subtle hints of earthy hops. A very good malty and creamy aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a creamy, toasty, and fairly sweet malt driven taste with big notes of caramel and smoke. Upfront toasted barley malts with good notes of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, chocolate, smoke, and cream as well as some nuts, grains, and yeast. Good notes of sweet brown sugar as well as some peat and wood. Subtle earthy hops in the background. A pretty good malty taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a very high level of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth. Alcohol heat is hidden well.
Overall: A pretty good take on a Scotch ale. The nitro adds a lot of cream without burying the malt notes too much.

I knew this was going to be a big beer. From the time I poured it out of the can.
There was a strange situation, that happened with me and all the others that tasted it that night. When we poured it, there was a big nice heard, a dark clear bottom, but a hazy cloudy middle. But within a few seconds, that cloudy haze turned into the dark clear bottom. Very strange.
Personally, I think the nitro boost distracted from this beer. It made it a bit too smooth and creamy. I remember this one from the variety pack before it was Nitrod and the overall appeal of this Scottish ale was better.
