I love a Nitro. Most Nitro's, for me, will bring out a bit more of the flavor and complexity. The Old Chub is a great Scotch Ale, but the Nitro version seemed a bit more dulled down. Poured great. Great head retention. Dark Amber, almost Brown color. But all the caramel and maltiness and big flavor that kicks you in the throat with the Old Chub, is still present, but a lot more subdued in the Nitro; disappointing, if that's what you were looking forward to, but could be a good thing if you were looking for the ABV and flavor, but wanted a smoother drinking experience. Overall, just as with the Old Chub, your fondness for this beer will grow exponentially as you near the end.

Serving type: nitro-can
