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.

michcam8 (534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On draft at Deweys Pizza in Grandview. Dark brown/ruby red with a light brown head. Good amount of lacing left on the glass. Very drinkable considering the 8% alcohol. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke and hops. Creamy, medium body that sits well on the palate. Good beer that would recommend and $5.00 for a pint...not too bad of a price.

BlazerT (848) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown with moderate, light brown, semi-thick, frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderate to heavy malty aroma - some burnt caramel, roasted, chocolate, notes of smokiness. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet an slight to moderate bitter - average to long duration. Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is malty, sugarish. In overall not the best scotch ale I had.

Satyroneto (347) - BRAZIL - JAN 14, 2017
Cor marrom escura com leve brilho rubi; presena de bom perlage mas pouco visvel pela cor escura da cerveja; espuma bege de baixa/mdia formao com alta persistncia e formao de bom lacing. Aroma maltado de chocolate, frutas secas e nozes, alm de um toque de madeira. Sabor inicial de chocolate e frutas secas evoluindo para um final de levssimo amargor amadeirado; retrogosto de madeira lembrando usque escocs. Corpo mdio e baixa carbonatao.

beer_rookie (495) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours a very dark brown color. About one finger or so tan colored head. Poor retention, slight lacing.

Aroma is strong, almost winey. Dark fruits, chocolate, wine.

Taste is winey. Very malty. Sticky sweet. Brown sugar. Caramel. A little alcohol burn.

Mouthfeel is heavy/full bodied. Sticky mouthfeel. Its also slick and oily, almost like Nyquil. It costs the mouth and throat with stickiness. Alcohol burn. Interesting.

Overall, its pretty good. Its good, but a little difficult to drink because if is so heavy. I like it, but it isnt very drinkable. Its a one and done. Or two and through. Id probably recommend it, and Id probably buy it again

oobawa (879) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2017
So freakin dark for a Scotch ale, a heavy red-orange threatening to deepen into porter-ish brown. Tastes almost cola-sweet, starting with a blast of caramel floating over a whisky-tinged peat undercurrent. Essentially an endless malt pit, only gaining the mildest of bitterness to stave off cloying ugliness on the fade. Almost too one-sided, even for such a malt-centric style.
