On tap at Oscar Blues in Brevard where the ABV was listed as 8%.

Small weak head over a near black, opaque body. It still manages to leave some lacing.

I had this immediately after a can of regular Old Chub, and I liked this special version better. It's more complex. it tastes sweeter, and the peaty aspect seems subdued.

Spice is subtle so as to not overpower the base beer. Seems more mellow, yet also more rich than regular Old Chub. Flavor is worthy of sipping, but goes down so easy!
