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.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Aroma of chocolate and roast malts with some coffee and peat notes. Dark amber brown with small creamy tan head. Grassy hop flavor then roasty malts with some smoke and peat with a touch of alchohol warming in the finish. Moderate bitterness. Medium very creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 12 oz can from Pizza Port bottle shop Carlsbad: Deep burgandy color with a small, fading tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and caramel. Flavor starts rich and malty with caramel, a nutty note, a little raisin, a hint of smoke and a light bitterness in the finish. Medium body is creamy with soft carbonation.

Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Can, totally surprised by this one. Got the 6 pack for free and assumed it would be something cheap. Loads of malt aroma. Great malt chocolate taste. Incredible. Caramel and its creamy mouthfeel make you feel like you’re drinking a beer milkshake. Great

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours from the can - go figure - a dark brown with a nice head that reduces but remains for the entire experience. the lacing on the sides of the glass is perfect. A thick scotch ale that feels like it is textured on your tongue. Strong flavor of toffee and roasted malts. An excellent, excellent scotch ale.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a white head. Smells sweet, chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Taste is silky smooth, with tobacco, smoked peat, chocolate, coffee, and the alcohol tastes like a scotch ending. Very smooth and dark. My only two faults are that I wish it didn’t smell like a porter and that the head was larger/lacing present. Pretty good though.

smith4498 (3618) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours cola brown with tan head. Aromas of caramel and chocolate. Flavors of sweet roasted malts with a touch of coffee and alcohol. Sticky yet creamy mouthfeel makes this very nice going down. Medium/full body with slight carbonation. Another great beer from Oskar Blues.

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
From a can. Don’t see many cans so almost passed on this one. But it was good. Poured red brown with tan head and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts and some hops. Rich smooth mouthfeel. Flavor tends toward caramel malts and there is a dry smoky finish. Good stuff

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Poured caramel brown from the can. All my friends said it was the darkest beer they have ever seen come out of a can (at which point I told them about ten fidy). Nose is caramel and a hint of smoke. Taste is big rich caramel, nuttiness, sweet malt, distant balancing bittering hops, and more smoke and peat. Pretty rich and pretty sweet. But hey, its a scottish ale, so what can you expect.

Dogbrick (12783) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Sample at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Pours a mostly clear dark reddish-brown color with a medium thin and foamy beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of malt and molasses, along with a touch of hops. Rich body with a sweet character of malt, caramel and molasses that is spiked with a decent amount of hops. The finish is roasted malt with a lingering sweetness left over. Pretty enjoyable all around.
