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.

EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 Dark brown pour with a red tint. Nice white head. Smells like sweet chocolate or cocoa. Really intense chocolate malty aroma. Some grain and yeast undertones as well as sour fruit. Delicious creamy chocolate malt flavor. Like chocolate milk. Smooth and creamy. Slight bitter hoppiness and a tiny bit of alcohol on the finish. Good body.

Dark flavorful malty scottish ale. Nice aroma and has a suprisingly nice kick. Creamy with nice heavy flavors (malt, choco, caramel). Nice beer.

This is good. Somwhat light in mouth feel. I like a thicker liquid in this style, but, that said, good flavor, balance and, particularly, not overly sweet on the finish as are many in this style. And it is out of a can!!!

From a 12-oz. can--Poured a rich brown-amber body. Sweet, nutty, malty, hoppy nose. Lots of bite in the mouth feel. great carbonation. Finishes with some peat and cola notes. Very complex and delectable.

nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2008
12oz can. Black-amber color with a thick, frothy head. Big smoky chocolate aroma. Creamy and rich, with a little smoked malt flavor. Deep and full bodied but oh-so-mellow and smooth. Smooth, sugary finish. One of the best Scottish-style American beers out there.

A super awesome "dessert-style" masterpiece from the folks at OskarBlues. Creamy, ultra malty, but plenty of sweetness and the fact it is canned only adds to the coolness factor. One of my favorites!!

Can from mcbackus: Pours a very deep brown with a creamy white head. Carmel, peat and smoke on the nose. Taste is sweet up front witha fade to smoky peatness. Finish is slight chocolate with carmel.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2008
12 oz. Can courtesy of Naka. Pours a dark amber/brown with some light red hues. Nice medium khaki head, foamy and quickly dissipating from about one finger thick, leaving a decently laced glass. Big malt nose, mostly caramel with a slight smoke, and a touch of biscuit. Taste is full of caramel and chocolate, touch of toffee. A rather forward smoky quality permeates throughout, subtle, mixing with a mild to moderate bitter for the style. The end is crisp, but the hop bitterness and smoke lingers slightly on the sides of the tongue. Tasty brew. Would pair well with grilled steak or some beef brisket. k
