The Brü Revü – Oskar Blues Old Chub

Oskar Blues has several high quality craft brews in a can and the Old Chub is their version of a Scotch Ale.  When I opened the can it seemed flat as there was none of that carbonated swoosh.  It poured a deep dark mahogany almost like a Cola with little head that dissipated quickly.  The aroma was of sweet malt and toffee and the taste continued the sweet malt with a hint of chocolate.  It had a medium to full body and was very smooth, although slightly boozy.  Not overly complex, but highly drinkable.  I haven’t had a Scotch Ale in a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed the Old Chub, although it did get a little sweet to me at the end.  If the Old Chub is any indication, Oskar Blues is definitely giving canned beer a good name.
