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.

Bue à la pression. Couleur dark comme il faut, tenue de mousse pas dégueulasse. Nez majoritairement caramel/toffee, un peu café. Grosse rondeur en bouche avec des notes de réglisse, de toffee et de café. Carbo légère. Bière bien agréable et tellement douce qu’on a envie de la câliner.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 9, 2017
Dark brown opalescent colour with a frothy light tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, nuts and dark fruits develop. Fine carbonation, surprisingly slender and only lightly slick, little sweetness and some roast bitterness. Lasting finish.

thomashall (999) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2017
12oz can shared. Dark brown pour. Aroma is malty, nutty. Roasted malts up front, a little ashy but decently balanced. Not too bad.

crispaire (242) - - APR 17, 2017
Pours a dark cola with a thick creamy tan head. Great malt backbone. The smoky traces transport me to a campfire. Very smooth and round. One of the best scotch ales I've had. Actually reminds me of scotch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jaghana (6160) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 15, 2017
Can 355ml, a dark brown beer with copper head that goes quickly. Nose is on caramel, butter caramel and ripped fruits. Aroma is on the same, oxidized notes, plum, dark fruits, sugar; toasted chocolate. Less complex than expected.
