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.

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! What a great beer! I really enjoyed trying this one. In fact, I wanted another as soon as I finished. I was really surprised to get such a great flavored, nice body beer out of a can!

Definite unique smoke flavor, heavy body, no noticeable alcohol overtone as I’ve often had with American made Scotch Ales. Probably the most enjoyable beer I’ve had in or out of a can.

355ml can from The Beer Cellar. Scotch ale in a can, how good is that. Dark copper colour, light brown head and a strong caramel nutty aroma. The flavour hits all parts of the mouth and is quite rich and smooth.

Love the appearance, the aroma, the full, creamy flavor yet medium-heavy body. Overall, an excellent beer. The chocolate, the malt and caramel flavors are so perfectly balanced.

Best tasting beer! Malty goodness! Have tried it cold and warmed with brown sugar, butter and spices. Delicious both ways! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful, oh, my yes. Some sediment; been aged a month or four. Lovely opaque espresso colour, tan head. Chocolate toffee coffee scent, very nice. As it warms it gets better. Rich palate, alcohol is well-hidden, some carbonation matched with substantial malt flavours. Tops.

From the 120z can --- can made no difference in taste as far as I’m concerned. From the first pour into a glass this ale is alive with seductive aromas of scotch whiskey and toffee. Some scents of a creme brulee on the nose. Plenty of smoke and bitters all put together in a creamy body of liquid perfection. Man, this one’s good! The 8% is hardly felt on consumption.

Unlike any scotch ale I've ever had and one of my favorites. Boozey nose and amazing deep red color. Tastes surprisingly sweet with a small amount of roastiness and booziness to balance it. An absolute treat.
