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.

Can from Beergium. Aroma is sturdy dark malt, caramel, raisins, touch of coffee and chocolate with a slight hint of smoke. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is above medium. Nice thick sweet malt assault with a good body.

Color Coca-Cola, rojizo si le da la luz, opaco, con capa de espuma amarronada de tres o cuatro dedos de grosor (muy cremosa, estilo café, y de buena retención). Carbonatación alta (no tan presente en boca). Cuerpo medio, como si fuera aceite meloso. En nariz hay caramelo, malta tostada, cacao, avellana, lúpulo y un ligero ahumado fácil de percibir. En boca es primero dulzona, destacando el cacao y el caramelo, posteriormente un ligero toque de lúpulo ayuda a refrescar y al tragarla hacen presencia las avellanas y el ahumado. En postgusto queda un sabor a avellanas y a humo que invita a pasar la lengua por las paredes de la boca y el paladar repetidas veces. Compleja, sabrosa y de lo mejor que he probado de Oskar Blues (brewery para la historia) junto con la Death by Coconut. Aún no tengo muy claro qué es una Scotch Ale pero si las demás son mínimamente similares puede convertirse en un estilo que siga con verdadero interés.

Very dark brown with thin lasting head. Aroma has lots of sweet malts. Flavour is similar but also with a light peppery spiciness.

Svartvit (516) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Can at home. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Caramel, roasted malts, dark fruits, smoke, charred wood, orange, fruity chocolate, molasses, cocoa. So many flavors but a bit heavy on the palate. Slightly over carbonated as well.

kapusil (1413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2017
0.355l bottle. Dark orange body with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, chocolate, butter, orange zest and floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, chocolate, star anis and floral hops. Very nice.

3.7
alteregoo (1397) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Obfita, średnio trwała piana. Barwa brązowo herbaciana, klarowna. Aromat delikatny, karmelowy, orzechowy, delikatnie wędzony w ogniskowy sposób. W smaku półsłodkie, karmelowe, z nutkami Werther’s Original, kakao i orzechów laskowych, wędzonka daleko w tyle. Goryczka nieduża, tytoniowa, lekko palona. Lekko cierpkie, średnio wysycone, nie gęste i nieźle pijalne w odbiorze.
Całkiem ciekawa odskocznia od RISów czy IPA, aczkolwiek dość mdłe na dłuższą metę, do najlepszych w mojej opinii piw w tym stylu wciąż daleko (Dark Horse Scotty Karate i Blue Mountain - MacHayden’s Wee Heavy).

BrewBrain (169) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Can to tulip glass. Delicious caramel, molasses, mild smoky aroma. Dark brown/burgundy color with small brown head. Flavor is caramel, butterscotch, prune, smoke. Moderate carbonation, thick mouthfeel. Sweet and mild tangy aftertaste. Very nice.

On tap at the Boardroom in FWB. They didn’t have a Porter or a Stout on tap so James recommended the Old Chub. Excellent beer with everything you look for in a dark beer. Reminded me of some great RIS.

3.9
Dervock (1321) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2017
Can - pours dark brown with a short lived thin tan head. Aroma is burnt sugar, caramel, dried friit and generally sweet. Taste is sweet burnt sugar, rum and dried fruit. Finish is sweet and lingering with a rummy bitter taste.
