Nose is dark malt, wood, dark toffee, soft bourbon notes.

16 oz. aluminum can given to me by stevemastny at DLD 2013- thanks a ton, Steve! Unlabeled except for a small white sticker that read: Oskar Blues Wild Turkey Barrel Old Chub. Pours a hazy nut brown color with a small beige head. Whiskey barrels are undeniably present on top of brown sugar, nuts, vanilla, toast, and an oaky/peaty note. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is quite bourbon. Med + body. Flavor is sort of wee heavy mixed with bourbon. It is very smooth. It is quite tasty. If beer is liquid bread, what is this?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Colorado Craft Beer Kickoff Week at Falling Rock. Pours a murky, reddish brown appearance with a small tan head. Whiskey, oak, vanilla, somewhat boozy, a bit herbal aroma. Flavor is boozy and whiskey forward with some light herbal hoppy elements and some caramel notes. Not my favorite as it was strong on the finish and quite whiskey forward.

On tap at Flying Saucer Beerfeast. Pours a cloudy brown with a large beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is oak booze and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with sweet vanilla and roast with nice sweet finish. Hides alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very impressive BA version of Old Chub.

Medium mouthfeel with strong rich malt and dark fruits with a light smoke finish. Hides alcohol well, a very impressive variation of the Old Chub.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample FOBAB ’12 - Love me some Old Chub, so couldn’t pass this one up...deep mahogany pour with thin tan head - aroma is whiskey (much more forward than the Ten Fidy also being poured), hint of peat, roasted malt, and a general sweetness - good overall. Flavor is similarly strong on the bourbon side, with a good level of roastiness, and a slap of smoke. Palate is medium to full bodied - much thicker than your average scotch ale. This one was good, but not something I’d really seek out again...
