Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
OLD CHUB NITRO takes you deeper into the rich, malty flavors of the original brobdingnagian Scotch Ale, while the nitrogen widget liberates a cascading, uber-silky smooth oral experience only the CAN provides. This jaw-dropping Scottish strong ale (6.9% ABV) is brewed with bodacious amounts of malted barley and specialty grains, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malt. Old Chub Nitro features semi-sweet flavors of cocoa and coffee, and a wee-bit of smoke. A head-turning treat for malt heads and folks who think they don’t dig dark beer.

Pours a nice deep dark amber/brown and leaves the same colored body with a two finger white foamy head in my thistle. Adequate light foamy lacing clings to the sides of the glass. In the aroma, a nice showcase of the typical "peat" smells of a Scottish ale along with some caramel and chocolate. I do get the malt scotch. The taste is sweet with all of the previously mentioned flavors showcasing a nice arrangement of sweet notes. Fairly easy on the palate, decent amount of malts subtly coat the mouth. Overall, my first wow by Oskar Blues, its about time, I would definitely have this again.

On tap at Oskar blues. Incredible mouthfeel and much different than regular chub. Recommend.

Dark black with a creamy, white head.

Nose is muted but some roasted notes. Taste is malty and a little acrid.

Mouth is to be expected - very mild carbonation and a creamy feel.
