Oskar Blues Old Chub Scotch Ale
Day: 83 (since July 1, 2014)
Beer: Oskar Blues Old Chub Scotch Ale
Brewery: Oskar Blues Brewery
Style: Strong Scotch Ale
ABV: 8.0 %
Rating: 4.0 stars
Tasting Notes: Dark reddy-brown in color with a tan head that goes quickly. A nutty toffee aroma. Flavor is of treacle with a slight sweetness that is restrained due to CO2 carbonation. Moderate carbonation with a good mouth-feel.
Description: This jaw-dropping Scottish strong ale (8% ABV) is brewed with bodacious amounts of malted barley and specialty grains, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malt. Old Chub 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.
Comments: CO2 carbonated version.
