It was poured into a snifter and since it was the last beer in the sixer i bought i decided it was about time to rate it. This beer has a dark brown color with no head and a good amount of carbonation. It does however leave some spotted streaks along the sides of the glass. The nose is swwet toffee with some bitter hops and roasted malt with hints of chocolate. As you drink it there is a nice toasted initial flavor filled with rich moca and coffee. the roasted flavors mixed with the chocolate moca stick to your palate like glue. overall it is a great beer and the fact that it comes in a can makes it better since canned beer is always assumed to be bad or of poor quality.

Pours with a small, creamy, light brown head that quickly disapates. Body is an ultra dark reddish-brown body. Aroma of peat, smoke, some sweet malts, and dark fruits. Pretty light tasting, finishes with some peat, smoke and malt. Hard water mouthfeel with low carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

IF only more micros could go to cans, it would be so much more convenient. This pours a nice brown colour with lots of creamy syrupy aromas and a decent sized tan head. Roasted malts, toffee and apple in the taste.

The beer pours from the can a very dark amber. The short lasting head is a light tan. The nose is a mix or caramel, dark fruit and coffee. The taste is round with notes of sweet stone fruit coffee chocolate toffee and caramel. The finish is slightly bitter and short lived

12oz can from South Bay liquor San Diego. I was very impressed with my first beer from Oskar Blues. Poured a deep dark brown with a faint ruby hue. A very small tan head was there and gone in a flash, little lacing. The nose had hints of toasted malts, dark fruits and chocolate. On the palate, this beer was very smooth and creamy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red to black body. Smokey roasted malt. Thick and filled with caramel malts. Complex palate, but not complex in the flavor. Verging on sticky sweetness. Woody. Mildly alcoholic. Still refreshing with all the dark aromas and woody tastes. Sweetness is quite strong.

I bought a 6 pack of OB Old Chub along with a case of OB Dales Pale Ale a little over a month ago and have very much enjoyed them both. I’ve never really dabbled too much with scotch ales. pours a rich dark brown; 1 inch head. Balanced and complex aroma with savory and sweet flavor profiles; cocoa, oak, maybe molasses, and a bit o’ hop. Sweet with the alcohol coming through on the back end.
Good brew with pasta or something to balance the sweetness.
