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.

Can, 8.0%. Weak roasted aroma, slightly rough. Very dark brown colour. Small light brown head. The flavour is roasted and quite malty, a caramelly maltiness. Creamy flavour, finishes with a little syrupy sweetness.

Pours a clear dark brown with a medium beige creamy head and lacings. Quite sweet with lots of malts and caramel. Also some brown sugar. Tiny hint of smoked malts. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Has a touch of whisky. Very full bodied. Medium carbonation. Sweet "heavy" finish.

Another tasty brew from Oskar Blues. The sweet caramel notes in this go well with the light smokiness. The Alcohol is well hidden.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Can, received as bonuses from both alexsdad06 and hopson, thanks guys! Pours a brown with amber highlights, with a sizable dense pillowy tan head, good lacing. Aroma has the light presence of nuts, caramel malts, and some cola. Flavor is lots of malts, gentle caramel and light smoke and sweetness. Not a bad scotch ale.

Very dark, opaque solid brown color with a bubbly fluffy off white head that retains well. Chocolate, caramel malt and nutty sweet aroma. Taste is very smooth scottish style obviously. Rich nutty malty taste. Little heavy body. Toasted, light smoke and some chocolate taste as well.

This has got to be one of my favorite scotch ales. I know everyone says this but WOW! This came from a CAN? Aroma of strong malt and caramel. Pour was a nice dark brown with a nice 1 finger off white head. Taste was HUGE. Easily drinkable with huge caramel malt flavors and a decent light hop aftertaste. Can pick up some woody and roasty flavors in the back of the tongue. After I hit 1000 I will buy a lot more of this.
