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.

(Can at Pikkulintu on 2008-06-15) Deep reddish brown colour. Clear. White small quickly disappeared head. Lots of malts in nose, and some chocolate, too. Full and sugary palate. Salty liquorice, malts, hints of syrup and quite amount of chocolate in taste.

Can from the PP Bottle Shop. Still a rather impressive appearance when poured from the can into a pint glass. Hindered aromatics (from said can perhaps?) however, but faint blend of smoky peat and caramel aroma. Deep brown color. Peppery caramel and sugary brown malts dominate the flavor. Finishes easy, multiple cans of this are possible in one session. Not bad.

Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. I really didnt care for this to much. I found it flat and chocolate and malt didnt mesh well for me.

I like this style a lot! Its an amber beer on steroids. Creamy texture and lots of roasted mixed malts. Caramely, a bit of milk chocolate and some fruitiness at the end. Id love to try this on tap.

Dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted, dark and sweet malts, peat, caramel and light chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate an light fruit. Alcohol hidden pretty well.

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.
