COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ok, scottish ale, a bit dense with a lot of carbonation. Nice creamy head, and bubbly aftertaste.

"Can @ Barnacle Bills - Pours a reddish-brown with medium head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of bittersweet cocoa, caramel, malts, figs, nuts, dates, anise, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste the same. Palate of sweetness and chocolate and plums. Thick, choco deliciousness! Mmmm, yum! Loved every drop."

LazyPyro (437) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2016
355ml can from BrewDog online. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Rich malty aroma, caramel, dark chocolate, roast. Taste is also really malty, caramel and some dark fruit flavours, quite sweet with a bitter end. Really smooth mouthfeel. Not a big fan of this style of beer to be honest but it’s a good strong brew, and speaking of strong: I thought the alcohol was really noticeable in the taste, more so than other beers of similar strength.

Pours very dark brown to black with a slight aroma of oak and chocolate. Tastes of caramel and malt with moderate carbonation and a mild bitter sweet finish. Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch!

Burk på En Trappa Upp, premiär på Pitchers ölhak, Örebro. Mörkbrun med röda toner, tunt, tunt brunbeiget skum som lämnar lite rester på kanterna. Sockersöta toner med brunt socker, kola, russin, torkad frukt. Mellanstor kropp. Inleds söt som doften, sockersött. Går över i lite torrare, mer rostade toner. Muscovadosocker dominerar. Lite väl söt för min smak, men stilenlig. Snygga rostade toner som bryter av något.
