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.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A very dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel - too sweet for my taste, but OK for the style.

(Can 35,5 cl) Dark mahogany with a reddish glow and a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Full-bodied with lots of roasted malt and perhaps a wee, smoked edge. Some sweetness, some alcohol. Quite lovely. Thanks to xproudfoot for this one. 150306

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Canned. Dark ruby. Sweet with full-medium body and plenty of roasty, buttery malt. Points deducted for the somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Resiny finish.

17th September 2008. Dark brown clear ale. Aged malt flavour but not too ’wee heavy’. Tangy malt and a mild chocolate and malty finish with just a touch of fruit. Low carbonation.
