Day #325 – Oskar Blues Old Chub

November 22, 2011

Stopped in at the Ginger Man tonight and picked up an awesome snifter of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

Unfortunately I reviewed that beer earlier in the month, (perhaps last month) so I’ve got to find something else to review today. Luckily it came in the form of a Scotch Ale from Oskar Blues.

As previously mentioned, this is a scotch ale from Oskar Blues Brewing Company out of Lyons, Colorado. This beer is usually served out of a can however I found it on tap. 8% ABV.

This beer pours a dark reddish brown color that shows ruby highlights when held to the light. Light ring of tan head.

Aroma is light yet malty. Caramel sweetness and some sticky sweet notes.

Flavor is certainly sweet with caramel malts, brown sugar, light oak notes and a touch of alcohol. Finishes light and dry with a bit of lingering sweetness.

Cheers!

EDIT: Had a can in my apartment weeks later.
