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.

ebone1988 (1307) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Aroma is caramel, toffee, butterscotch, candy, malt, slight booze, very good. Appearance is quite dark, dark brown with a light brown head, missing that ruby I look for. Taste is caramel and toffee, nice malt, dark fruit, delicious. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, not as nice as Dirty Bastard but enjoyable. Overall, this is worth the purchase, and one of the few really good Scotch Ales.

Weich, malzig alkoholischer Antrunk mit leicht bitteren Noten. Geringe Karbonisierung, die Malzigkeit ist angenehm, dahinter allerdings leicht alkoholisch. Nett. 11/10/11/10//11

On tap at the Wine Barrel. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, toffee and chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, chocolate and a touch of wood. Very nice.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Can 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Red garnet beer with a short beige head. Malted aromas, generously caramelized and with some molasses and smoked. The taste is soft, voluptuous and sugary, with a malt coated by caramel roasted-molasses, candied fruits nuances and noice smoked. Unctuous beer with notes of chocolate and alcohol.

kingaugusta (224) - Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Pours deep amber brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet with hints of chocolate, raisins, and a bit of smoke. Flavor is rich but does not lean strongly in any particular direction. Finish is dry. Warm but not boozy. Good beer.
