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.

Satisfying. Pours dark gold, ample, slightly tan, head. Aroma is sweet cereal. Taste is brown sugar - this is where the smoke shows up - the depth and richnes of the sweet. Somehow, the sweetness is not overpowering, and it works well.

Very strong beer for my taste, nice foam and very acidic after taste not my favorite but I can deal with it I feel this is a beer you could ha e with some aged cheese (personal preference). Smell chocolaty/smokey/burn wood caramel, coffee, brown foam. Palate: bitter.

Puszka. Barwa ciemna, brunatna. Piana niewysoka, nietrwała. Aromat średnio intesywny. Karmel, cukierki wertel's oryg., lekka czekolada. W smaku orzechy, ww. wymienione cukierki, karmel, suszone owoce ( morele+śliwka). Pełne w odbiorze, umiarkowana słodycz. Goryczka niska, wysycenie w kierunku średnim, punktowe. Fajne słodkie posmaki zostają na języku. Alkohol lekko wychodzi po ogrzaniu. Smaczne.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Interesting brown ale. Tastes like scotch whiskey before distillation... or at least that is what it seemed like. Nice change from hoppy IPAs, stouts and pale ales.

Can. Caramel malt aroma with notes of chocolate, roasted malt and smoke. Pours dark caramel colored with a thin light brown head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with caramel and chocolate malt sweetness. Finishes smooth with roasted malt and smoky flavors. Pretty nice scotch ale.
