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.

0,355l can from Beer Republic. Pours dark brown color with medium head. Aroma of rich maltness, slightly roasted, and sweetness in chocolate, vanilla, syrup and bourbonish tones, and slight fruitiness and wood. Taste is mostly in line with aroma, a bit complex maltiness and sweetness, with a bit of bitterness to back it up. Slight smokiness that reminds me of whiskey now that I read of it, especially in the aftertaste.

Old chub is the first and only scotch ale I’ve ever tried. Remind me of a porter. Thick maltey and dark it’s a beer that you would only want to drink one or maybe two of ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zilverenmaan (308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2017
Malty, caramel, light vanilla, some chocolate, surprisingly fruity, good complexity, tasty, well balanced, not too sweet as feared. Didn't notice the smoke. Light, grainy aftertaste.

12floz, COD: 10.25.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. 'Ppears chestnut brown with a mighty foam. T'is here foam leaves its film behind as I consumeth. A lil' aroma gives off a general mild roasted character. Notable features are th' walnut and gently burnt (toasted) bread flavors. D'cent full bodied 'merican scotch ale, though I prefer the creaminess of the nitro. Unfortunately, it ain't been 'round these parts for quite some time. D'pendin' on the mood t'is could be be a l'il more favorable, or much less so like in the summer.

Canned 355ml. -Nearly brown coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, light caramel, toasty notes, touch of hops and odd meaty notes as well. Sweetish finish. There's something that I don't like here.

From 32 Great Power. In Teku glass. Watching Broken Mirrror 2x01. With pok cheese. Typical scotch ale well executed. Toffee with a bit of booze and smoke. However, nothing bothering, instead providing it some character.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 An absolutely beautiful and smooth beer. Malty, and firm in flavor; an excellent companion to anything beef.
