Nice and round, chunky rich with a subdued hint of smoke, Old Chub is a classic in the making. Very little hopping in this one. Nice and malty. Mmmmmm. Go get some now!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml can from the <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Dark brown in colour, thin beige head dissipating into a ring around the glass, some spotty lacing. The aroma was of light chocolate, some caramel, smoke, generous sweetness. The flavour had some smoke, chocolate malts, light roast, caramel, good sweetness, chewy and sticky. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes medium length, mild sweetness. No alcohol noticable throughout despite being 8%, excellent balance.

Carmelly malt and chocolate aroma,distinct but not strong, an initial burst of grainey malt with chocolate, sweet carmel and a touch of fruitiness, all of which suddenly and quickly fades to dryness and a hint of smoke. Its almost strange how that happens. Once again, a pleasant surprise from a can

Amazing, another kickass canned beer. Very dark brown pour, with a nice tight mocha head. Very sweet and malty, with chocolate and maple syrup flavorings, with a nice bit of bitterness in the finish. Good stuff. Another winner for Oskar Blues

Can?! thanks to CaptainCougar: Dark brown pour, with a small tan head. Aroma rich malts, some chocolate. Flavor was chocolate, roasted malts, some bitterness on the finish. Mild carbonation, light bodied. By far the best thing I’ve ever had out of a can.

355 ml can. Dark reddish copper colour. Thick light brown head. Clear, but with some yeast residue floating in the glass. Rich malty sweet aroma with some roasted and caramel. Gives an impression of a really sweet beer. Lightly burnt caramel. Cream. Thick mouthfeel. At first a bit sweet, but the finish is dry with a gentle hop bitter aftertaste. Hops linger a while after swallowing. Surprisingly mild and gentle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can...no shit! Pours deep dark brown with thick creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, peat, and cocoa. Nice creamy, medium full mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet with a big malt backbone, but with a dry roastiness and pleasant hop bitterness. Flavor of dark fruit and light roast coffee on the smooth finish. Nice. To many of these by the grill or pool could mess you up!

Nice brew, expecting a syrupy sweet brew, but this one is balanced very well, with little alcohol noticable. Smoky, abit of sweetness, hopped well enough. Solid brew! Thanks to Duane for this one!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 Can. Pours dark amber, to a nearly opaque ruby in the glass, with a moderate tan head. Aroma is rich and malty; mainly sweet and caramel, but also a bit of roastiness, smoke, and chocolate. Flavor has the same elements, but is a robust bittersweet than outright sweet, with a well-blended mix of many malt flavors. Smooth and slightly creamy on the palate, with relatively low carbonation. I was surprised when I found out it was 8% alcohol; I would’ve guessed 5%. Quite good, and in a can and reasonably priced at that.

12oz can via trade with Bück Dich! - Thanks Jordan! - Pours dark brown with a nice foamy tan head that blew out of the can when I popped the tab. Aromas of nice smooth caramel malts, some smoke, roasted malts as well. Nice sweet and malty flavor. Lots of caramel, a bit of chocolate, roasted malts, smoke, and some light hops on the finish. Palate is smooth with low carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Beer this good shouldn’t come from a can.. I like it...
