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.

DuffMan (10429) - 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.

a solid choice for dessert. tastes way better when you pour it out of the can into glass. this one is almost black, looking thick and heavy. great aroma of rich, sweet malts. flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, raisins, bread, and smoke. not hoppy, not supposed to be hoppy. delicious beer. alcohol is almost totally hidden, making it quite dangerous. try dale’s pale ale with dinner followed by old chub with dessert to experience microbrew bliss.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2008
355 ml can. Dark bown color, disappering beige head. Aroma is very malty, both roasted, chocolate and caramel - also hints of hops. Flavor is malty, with ok hops and some alcohol, but doesnt live up to the aroma.

Dark black beer. 1 inch tan head. Smells like caramel roasted malts. Tastes like dark roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, toffee, and is just all around delicious. Having the luxury of having all the Oskar BLues brews in a can is a dream come true. We can now drink quality beer out of acan. Wow! what an idea. The texture is medium light, which is just grand. This is a delicious beer, a great meal replacement, and a sure winner out here on the ocean.

It was poured into a snifter and since it was the last beer in the sixer i bought i decided it was about time to rate it. This beer has a dark brown color with no head and a good amount of carbonation. It does however leave some spotted streaks along the sides of the glass. The nose is swwet toffee with some bitter hops and roasted malt with hints of chocolate. As you drink it there is a nice toasted initial flavor filled with rich moca and coffee. the roasted flavors mixed with the chocolate moca stick to your palate like glue. overall it is a great beer and the fact that it comes in a can makes it better since canned beer is always assumed to be bad or of poor quality.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pours with a small, creamy, light brown head that quickly disapates. Body is an ultra dark reddish-brown body. Aroma of peat, smoke, some sweet malts, and dark fruits. Pretty light tasting, finishes with some peat, smoke and malt. Hard water mouthfeel with low carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

IF only more micros could go to cans, it would be so much more convenient. This pours a nice brown colour with lots of creamy syrupy aromas and a decent sized tan head. Roasted malts, toffee and apple in the taste.

texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2008
The beer pours from the can a very dark amber. The short lasting head is a light tan. The nose is a mix or caramel, dark fruit and coffee. The taste is round with notes of sweet stone fruit coffee chocolate toffee and caramel. The finish is slightly bitter and short lived

can, I have had three OB’s and all three are great, this one has a very caramel nose with a slight tan head, taste is really chocolate with some toffee and cracker jack thrown in, body and finish are excellent

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2008
12oz can from South Bay liquor San Diego. I was very impressed with my first beer from Oskar Blues. Poured a deep dark brown with a faint ruby hue. A very small tan head was there and gone in a flash, little lacing. The nose had hints of toasted malts, dark fruits and chocolate. On the palate, this beer was very smooth and creamy.
