Oskar Blues "Old Chub" Scottish Ale, Colorado (12oz)
Batch #3 canned on 2-3-09 "CHUB IS A JOYRIDE" This phrase printed on the bottom of the Old Chub can pretty much sums it up. To make something this good in a can should be illegal.The beer looks great in the glass with a deeply hued brown and a vanilla cream colored head that is thick and persistent while in the glass. Serve this cellar temp, my fridge was too clod for this one and I needed to warm up the glass with my hands to get any aromatics out of it. When warmed it gives off sweet licorice, caramel and brown sugar. Very sweet smelling. That sweetness persists on the palate, both in flavor and textural richness. With its deep flavors of chocolate covered cherry, carob, oak char and some interesting floral notes at its edges. I could drink this all night long but I think the 8.0% would catch up to me. This is amazing stuff and should be searched out by any beer fan. CHUB IS A JOYRIDE!!!
