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.

fletchfighters (1465) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2016
355 ML Can Pours a light cola color, settles like a cola color. Good ruby hues. Light tan head that falls off to a thin collar. Nose is chocolate, dark cherry, slight smoke, ash, and a little bit of sourness. Good grain profile. Taste is slightly sour and ashy chocolate, smoke, and cherry. Well balanced as get all the main ingredients of this. A little more sour and smoky in the mouth. Good scotch ale and on par for style.

tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2016
Clear, very deep copper body with a small, light tan head that ends up as a partially covering film, ok lacing. Malty and strong aroma of sweet caramel and lightly roasted malt, with chocolate and dark dried fruits in the back. Very strong flavour of sweet caramel, dark caramel and lightly roasted malt, upon a background of chocolate, dark dried fruits and hints of marzipan. Moderate sweet taste followed by a long-lasting moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied, creamy and soft carbonation. Great stuff!

Great malt aroma. Brown pour that is clear with a beige head. Taste is slightly spicy with a malt driven backbone, a hint of smoke and booze. Palate is thick with good carbonation. Overall, a wonderful beer to have a couple of. Will get again.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Can off Cousin Matt. Sturdy but soft bellied malt sipper with carob, cocoa-dusted fig, vanilla pod, Caribbean spice and raisin nose. Slick mahogany glossy with beige. Silken lactic palate mellow with muscovado and fig. Alcohol not discernible. Chilled, elegant, nearly too sweet. Faint Twiglet and liquorice. An unexpectedly long way from the park bench

355mL can from Booze Bud. Canned on 05/16/16 Pours a deep bronze body, holding a orange-tan head. Rich malt nose - treacle & toffee, roast nut, meaty smoke/charr, cola, cake, touch of fragrant, citrus hops. Full body, quite boozy upfront, not as thick as expected but smooth, chewy texture. Big malty ride on the palate - roast nuts, biscuit, burnt toffee, citrus rind, cocoa, dark fruits, touch of smoke. Moderate bitterness. Very good - solid Wee Heavy
