Review: Oskar Blues Old Chub

A Scotch Ale brewed by
Oskar Blues Grill & Brew

Lyons, Colorado USA

ABV: 8%

Glassware: Mug or pint glass

Pours from the can – go figure – a dark brown with a nice head that reduces but remains for the entire experience. The lacing on the sides of the glass is perfect. A thick scotch ale that feels like it is textured on your tongue. Strong flavor of toffee and roasted malts.  It has a very rich malt flavor, great smoked character, lots of rich chocolate, a nice amount of balancing sweetness. An excellent, excellent scotch ale.
