Love wee heavies and heard good things about oskar. Nice wiff, all the scotchiness is present and accounted for. Beautiful deep brown with obligatory thin, lacy head. Flavours are all there, delightful touch of peat behind the toffee goodness, but the mouthfeel doesn’t back it up. Nice lightly bitter finish rounds out a very drinkable, but not chart topping, bevvie.

Oscars old Can from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick fluffy head while the liquid was a deep shade of mahogany with some brown transparency. As for the nose, there is a healthy serving of sweet malt in a caramel fashion with some dark fruit such as fig, raisin and prunes that share the aroma nicely. The flavor is rich with a sweet almost syrup like malt flavor that is strong in alcohol yet easy to quaff. This is by far one of the best Scottish style ales I have had, and for it to come from an aluminum can and from the United States that’s a straight out compliment to Oskar’s.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Not as much overall aroma but the taste is pretty packed full of malt and scotchy booze. Overall smooth finish and enjoyable beer but not the best oskar blues

Oskar Blues Old Chub has a thick, creamy, beige head, lots of splotchy lacing, and a semi-clear, rust color. Aroma is of rich, smokey, sweet, fruity malts, and the flavor is of roasted, fruity barley malt, sweet, brown bread crust, and some caramel. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Oskar Blues Old Chub finishes wet, rich, and decently drinkable. The alcohol is not present in the taste, but shows up in one’s body (warmth) as the beer is drank down. Overall, this is nice, and I highly recommend it. RJT

Dark ruby color with almost no head at all. Very malt forward with a slight alcohol and almost cola taste. Good beer, but probably would seek it out.

Rich, chocolatey, hearty malt base. Chocolate cola nose seeps into the body as well. Plenty of flavor, could use a touch more body. A delicious Scotch Ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Söt i aromen, hint av russin. Tycker den är lite för spretig i smaken. Lite för lätt i kroppen, nästan på gränsen till lite vattnig.

On tap (nitro) at Taco Mac. Dark reddish brown with thick foamy head. Aroma of caramel/malt. Taste is toffee, caramel, raisin, and a touch of smoke. Mostly sweet flavors come through, but there is slight hop bitterness to finish. Mouthfeel is chewy, syrupy. Another great OB beer.
