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.

16oz. can served in a tulip nonic. Pour is beautiful and cascading - cola-colored in hue and opaque in clarity with a tight, creamy, one-inch, cafe-au-lait colored head. Head eventually settles into a consistent, quarter-inch cap. A few residual spots of lacing are revealed during the tasting. Nose very much subdued but there's a hint of something vinous mixed in with a trace of cocoa and an earthy/roasty malt profile. Taste consistent with nose with perhaps a suggestion of lactose and a trace of something metallic. Mouthfeel of this beer is wonderful; light-medium in body with a creamy/silky texture. Overall, the mouthfeel on this beer is outstanding, but I have to say that I prefer the standard over the nitro - the nose and flavors all come off a bit dull and underwhelming.
