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.

On tap at cajun cafe on the bayou, poured very black with a creamy tan head, the aroma was very malty mostly roasted coffee and chocolate, very thick mouth feel at first but stayed very smooth. I love this ale!

can. the malty aroma has a chocolate and dark fruit presence. tastes roasty with a thin body. carbonation seems to accentuate the thin body. very good taste and aftertaste, but could be a little more chewy for this style.

Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Can. Pours a very dark brown with a ruby tinge and a tan head. Strong malt aroma, chocolate and caramel. Very sweet flavor, chocolate and caramel malt again, and has a subtle roasted taste that comes on late. No bitterness to speak of, just alot of malt flavors. Pretty good.

Its all about the malt, but its confusing, if not flat, on the palate. Low carbonation with a nice color. I was hoping for a little more complexity.

Nice inky black, minimal head. Butterscotch, dust yeasty piney, peaty slightly burnt. Also some chocolate with light molasses, nicely peaty...tasty.Wow, this just tastes like a nice scotch ale should. Simple and sweet, nicely balanced.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Pours dark dark brown, almost black with a small amount of tan head. You can taste the sesame like flavor of the malts right away - very sweet and thick beer with notes of raisins, dates and caramel. Just a taste of smoke, almost a peat like flavor. My favorite Scotch Ale.

bierkoning (12887) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2008
Can from Solan, thanks! Dark brown color. Malt, raisin and cinnamon in the aroma. Sweet flavor with malt, licorice, cinnamon, caramel, raisin and a hint of chocolate. Sweet, but tasty beer.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
12oz can. Pours dark brown with red highlights. Thin, fizzy, offwhite head, no retention, no lace. Smells dark and malty sweet and dark ripe fruity. Very tasty, dark malty, dark ripe fruits, and then somewhat roasty malty as well. Medium body, good carbonation.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Can. Dark brown, coffee colored, with a dense off white head. Malty - caramel, some toffee. Relatively balanced aroma. Toasty and sweet flavor. Metallic in the back. Oily, bitter finish. Vinous, tannic, chalky at the end. A definitely solid, consistent, and widely available brew.

DuffMan (9912) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
Dark brown, with a reddish tinge. Thick foamy cream coloured head. Chocolate and toffee aroma. Sweet chocolate and toffee malt, generously provided. A pruney character to the finish, a little earthy as well. Boozy warming finish, sweet. Very nice.
