BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Oskar Blues Grill & Brew
Colorado, United States
oskarblues.com

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.

On nitro, this is a sweet, creamy, smooth, tasty malt bomb. This caramel colored beer, with a fine minimal head smells inviting. It is sweet, has a faint caramel taste, and a nice mushy, silky mouthfeel.

For me, the nitro does wonders for this beer. I normally don't appreciate Scotch ales, but this one on nitro is worth my time.

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
