COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Chub is a Scottish style ale brewed with copious amounts of crystal and chocolate malts, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malts. While Dale's Pale Ale ("the best-tasting canned beer I've ever had," according to many brewers and beer experts) is a showcase of both hops and pale malts, Old Chub is a celebration of malts. The cola-colored beer features a dense, tawny head, a creamy mouthful and flavors of caramel, chocolate and lightly roasted malt. Complex and rich, it finishes with a whisper of smokiness that calls to mind a fine single malt scotch. Old Chub weighs in at 8 % alcohol by volume.

From the can into a Delirium snifter/tulip. Dark brown, amber edges, and a frothy tan head. Muted nose of softly sweet malt. Flavor of toffee, lightly sweet malt, earth, toastiness. Simple but tasty. Smooth, medium body. Perfect bbq on the beach beer. Very nice.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Can poured a dark ruby brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma was a bit roasty with a big malt backbone. The taste was much the same with some smoke and chocolate character. The finish was slightly sweet with some noticable alcohol.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Again the best beer in a can. An odd scottish ale, this beer is big on flavor and a bit sweet for some. Grainy mocha and chocolate flavored malts thoughout. Not as smokey or creamy as they claim. Super rich! Three cans are enough.

Can. Dark amber/brown colour with a small off-white head. Dry malty hoppy aroma. Has a malty and hoppy flavor with some hints of caramel. Leaving you with a dry bitter finish.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Tasty with a nice malt character to it. Feels kinda thin on the palate. Finish had a little extra alcohol in it.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2006
Can. Pours a dark brown body with ruby tinges on the edge and a large creamy brown head. Superb aroma - caramel, butterscotch, peat, roasted malt, and sugar. Great flavour profile is present too - toasty malts, nuts, a touch of smokiness, and chocolate. Alcohol is well blended. Excellent.

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Can sampled at the Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The Mad Indian. Pours a bronze with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and chocolate. The flavor is mainly roast, smoke and chocolate.

skoisirius (1570) - Earth, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2006
12 oz can. Pours a lightly ambered brown tone thats fairly dark with a light tanned head. Aroma smells of heavy carmalized malts, toffee, and molasses cookies. The flavor has a rich sense of a lot of what happens with the nose, a very heavy carmalized, and almost smokey malt, backed with chocolate, toffee, and molassesy raisin breads. Near the finish a light, but noticable alcohol presence makes itself known, which gently warms the brain. Hands down the best beer Ive had out of a can, and one damn good scotch ale!

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2006
12oz can courtesy of CaptainCougar. Aroma: Sweet malt, strong breadiness, light chocolate and smoke. Appearance: Dark reddish-brown in color. Head was light tan, full, and creamy. Good retention and nice lacing. Flavor: Sweet malt with a touch of molasses. Chocolate and toffee. Again with the breadiness. Light anise and smoke. Tasty. Nice sweetness, but doesnt finish super sweet. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Light alcohol warming. Overall: I have to agree. The best beer Ive ever had from a can. Good representation of the style and very drinkable. Only issue is that carbonation seemed a little high. Besides that, very nice. Glad I have another of these to look forward to.
