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.

355 ml can. Oaked wine smell. Dark fruits. Dark color, dense foam. Complex taste, pretty good, but way too sweet. Kind of cyrup. Scotch ales are really criticaly acclaimed, but are not my thing at all.

Very good semi light scotch ale. Only slightly sweet, which I like, with a slightly bitter touch. Thoroughly enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (4120) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2017
Dark brown color, off white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of burnt caramel and toasted malts. Flavor is slightly bittery, notes of dry fruits and also dominated by caramelish notes. Toasty final with some burnt notes.

adster (829) - HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2017
Kólaszínű főzet bézs színű, krémes habbal, egyszerű vonalvezetésű, ánizsos, medvecukros beütésű, édeskésen malátás aromákkal. Szerkezete telt karakterű, karamellás, kekszes ízvilágú, könnyen fogyasztható. Nem biztos, hogy kapásból be tudnám sorolni a scotch ale-ek családjába, nem az feltűnő fajta, de összességében igen sima, kellemes, egyszerű mondanivalójú maláta-vezérlésű sör.

oberschlesier (156) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - MAY 12, 2017
Very good beer, flawless. Conformed to its style very well. But it would be more of everything, aroma, taste etc. Summarizing - it has 80-90% intensity, and I want to drink beers with intensity of 110% ;) Otherwise, it’s great beer.

AssKicker (657) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2017
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.

3.4
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.

Sympa. Rien à dire pour le style, manque un peu de corps. Fumé bien équilibré. Maltage modéré et amertume sympa.
