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.

Chocolate malty and alcohol aroma. Great brown colour with lace and mocha slight head. very much concur with the promotional markings, chocolate more than malt in the smell. Very smooth drink, caramel, chocolate, smoke, I would drink this on a regular basis. Missed it in Atlanta, found it in Buffalo.

[GABF 2006 – Denver, Co] Deep brown color with a light head. This was a great Scottish style brew. Loved the flavor and the malts used. Can also get a tad of smoked peat and the hops are very nice addition. Great BEER…

Pours dark brown with reddish hues when held up to the light, and has a thick foamy tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate aroma makes your mouth water. Ahh those choloate malts taste divine, with a roasted coffee flavor and a soft smoked aftertaste. Finishes smooth and clean. This stuff is awesome. There should be a law that Oskar Blues is the only brewery allowed to can beer. These guys got it down.

Draught at Brewery: Aroma is slightly malty and has licore scent. Poured ruby/brown in color. Small, off-white head diminished. Clear. No lacing. Flavor of roast, malts, hazelnut, coffee, and nutty. Moderate sweet. Not bitter. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Short finish. Overall, decent for a Scotch Ale.

12 Oz Can-Trade w/after4ever-Poured a dark ruby red w/a huge tan foamy head-probibly ’cause I couldn’t tell you the last time I tried to pour a CAN of beer into a glass!! Roasted, Malty, nutty flavor. Smooth taste of caramel, honey & malt. Has a long, somewhat smokey finish. Thought this was just kind of a gimmick when I saw it, but it’s a very good beer-good example of a scotch ale. You don’t really taste the alcohol, very smooth! Probibly even better on tap! Thanks for this one Tom!!!

12 oz can. Dark brown pour. Nice malty aroma that is sweet and smokey. Flavors of sweet malt, smoke, caramel, and some grains and wood. This is very good for being a canned beer. Interesting

[Canned, SBWF] Dark brown colour. Smokey, cheesy aroma, bit sweet. Fatty mouthfeel. Bit smokey in flavour and big malty. Classic Scotch Ale with a cheesy backbone. Big flavour-big finish!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Glossy black, in the sense that it is particle free and does not pass any light. This is a beautiful beer with a thick tan head. Problem is, it’s smoky, like a piece of salmon or a handful of smoked nuts. Not a fan of the taste, but she is a looker. $1.80/12oz

Very deceptive for a beer in a can. Dark brown color. Malty sweet beer with some caramel and chocholate. Great beer to bring to places that do not accept glass.
