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.

Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head (thick lacing). Aroma is rather faint with notes of caramel, malt, toffee, and oak. Flavor consist of maple, brown sugar, malt, chocolate, and raisens. Overall an Outstanding beer. Very well balanced, smooth yet thick palate with a crisp finish. Cant even detect the alc. content. Stays Good all the way through. Never expected that out of a can.

larsniclas (6450) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2007
Canned. Hazy, dark amber. Small, beige head. Lightly sourish aroma. A bit salty licorice. Nutty sourish flavour. Is it supposed to be like this?

rlgk (16562) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2007
Canned, at the Rover, Göteborg. Somewhat hazy amber color, offwhite head. Malty and somewhat sourish aroma, with fruity notes. Sourish flavor, a bit roasted, but really not that good. A bit infected, maybe?

12 oz can. Dark brown almosr opaque body with creamy tan almost guiness like head. Doughy, nice dark sweet malt w fruit maybe strawberry. Caramel and very strong malt push, slight bitterness and some pomegranate. Med to full body with creamy carb. Very good overall and was somewhat surprised with how happy drinking a beer from a can made me.

holdenn (2101) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2007
12 oz can thanks to xnoxhatex. Pours a dark brown with a beige fluffy tall head. Malty nose some chocolate, carmel, toffee, dried fruit and smoke? (next time i rate it, it won’t be around the campfire). Medium body. Malty sweet flavors bakers chocolate, a grainy earthiness that is a little like rye and a little chalky. Decent, but pales to dales ..pale .. ale.

ekstedt (6319) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2007
Can (35 cl) at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark reddish brown, medium creamy head. Roasted malt aroma with fruity orange notes, clear alcohol presence. Medium bodied, decent carbonation. A somewhat cloying sweetness is only partly balanced by a nice bitterness. A mediocre beer.

Weak aroma in my opinion. When I actually smelled the beer my beak picked of the faint aroma of sweet and chocolate. I barely smelled the chocolate aroma, but the fruity smell was easily noticed. The color is awesome, a nice dark brown, looks like a porter to me. Great color for an ale, but this is my first Scotch Ale. Wow, what a delicious beer. Chocolate, sweet raisins, malt a very tasty brew. The beer is very smooth, and does not taste as if it came from a can, no acidic taste. The beer does not do one thing for me. It does not allow the flavors to puch my tastebuds! The sweet is noticeable without thought, but to taste what flavors are in the beer you have to smack your lips after a sip for a moment to determine the other flavors, the flavors should jump out in my opinion. I taste the beer and it is great, what I am saying is that the flavors are great but rather weak. I overall am pleased with the beer. Good brew!
