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.

Draft from No Anchovies in Tucson. Very dark reddish brown in color. Aroma is toffee, raisins, cherries, and brown sugar. Consistency is almost creamy when it touches the tongue. Finishes very sweet, with a mild taste of alcohol. A solid beer from oskar blues.

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Can - The most subjective brew Iíve seen where the reviews are all over the place. I get... a dark pour, ruby brown, with creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavors of rich scotch malt, dark fruit, spices, and hints of smoke. I get a ting of sausage, but everyone thinks Iím crazy - just putting that out there. Thick mouth-feel, malty, and hops middle and end. I get a maple syrup alcohol aftertaste with a little smoke. Word!

Dark, dark amber in color. Thick, coarse head, spotty lace. Lots of earthy tones in the aroma, caramel, some tea and tobacco. Caramel and dark fruits on the tongue...a decent, earthy, sweet lingering finish. Hints of snoke. Par for the course for the style....a very easy 8%

Flavours of rich caramel and well browned toast, a little cherry and grapefruit. Nice but not my favourite Scotch ale.

I finally found this and i have to say its pretty good but not up to the ratings given so far (in my humble opinion). It pours a nice deep brown almost black body that when held to light has a amber apperance. Thin head and not much lace. Not much aroma, but the flavor was sweet with lots of caramel and a little smoke. Overall its pretty good and worth a shot and since its in a can i guess i can take it tubing next summer. : ) Originally rated on 11/18/08

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Tasting @ Budapest. Pours a dark cola color with a creamy light beige head. Aroma of scotch, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste similar to aroma. Nice balance (scotch is not overbearing). Good.

Can. Aroma and taste is malt, bread, caramalt and some vanilla (mostly in the aroma). Good scotch ale, but not the best....
