On tap at Untapped Dallas 2014. Brownish pour with a tan head. The aroma has some caramel and oak notes with a hint of tart cherry. The flavor is very similar. The flavor is fairly similar. I get the base beer at first but that is complemented by some nice woody notes, a bit of vinegar, some light funk and some light cherry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, dark brownish pour with slightly tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, vinegar, oak, some slight cherry juice into a bit of grass, slight coffee and earthy notes, grape comes in. Taste was a mix of dark caramel, cherry, medicine, dark fruit into some vinegar into a bit of oak, slight leather, finishing slightly tart, dry.

On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids, Longmont, CO. Dark brown pour with a short off-white head. Interesting aroma of subdued apple cider vinegar and sweet malts. The taste is more fruity than sour with cherry, red grape, and mild coffee. Tart finish but not over-powering. I would not have thought to make Old Chub sour but the end result is more interesting than expected.

Poured just like a normal chub, but with a tart nose. Cherries are prominent with a nice tartness.

On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is murky brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Perfumey, caramelly, dark fruity, grapey, and tangy aroma. Taste is smoky, band-aid, leather, sour cherries, tangy, roasted malt, vanilla and cocoa. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad.

On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a dark brown appearance with a dark brown head. Slight chemical note in the nose. Toasted caramel grainy smell with some light acetic acid. Flavor had some tannic notes, cherries, plums, figs, and toasted caramel. Ehhh, ok.

Really not at all similar to Old Chub (which brings to mind a certain 4th of July that I barely remember). Plenty of sour cherry and oak barrel and enough alcohol bite to scare off the wimpy. Me likey.

Crushed at Liquids and Solids a while back. Not usually a fan of the Chub, but I had to get a pint of this. Solid sour cherry and oak aroma and flavor with a little smokiness and a hint of chocolate. Very nice.
