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.

Had on tap. Looks dark, but still letting some light through. Like a coke, though obviously with different bubble style since this is nitro. Smells malty and lightly roasted. Tastes incredibly malty and delicious. Has a flavor hard to describe: comforting and soothing. Smokey and smooth and oh so good. Feels creamy and more creamy. Overall this was a fantastic beer and I'm already looking forward to my next one.

The head was very creamy and thick-off-white. The aroma has mild smoked malts and chocolate notes. The flavor is very nice and matches the nose. Old Chub hides the 8% alcohol very well. Overall a very good beer. Cheers and have a great day my friends.
