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.

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Poured out of a can into a tulip glass. Dark brown/rust color with 1/4 head that dissipated after a minute. Smell: Malty Taste: Malty and sweet but not too much. It has a great balance. Crisper than expected, but not crisp like a pilsner. Very drinkable. It hits the expected notes of a Scottish Ale.

12oz can shared. Dark brown pour. Aroma is malty, nutty. Roasted malts up front, a little ashy but decently balanced. Not too bad.

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

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.

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.

kaserov (519) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 29, 2017
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 caf, y de buena retencin). Carbonatacin alta (no tan presente en boca). Cuerpo medio, como si fuera aceite meloso. En nariz hay caramelo, malta tostada, cacao, avellana, lpulo y un ligero ahumado fcil de percibir. En boca es primero dulzona, destacando el cacao y el caramelo, posteriormente un ligero toque de lpulo 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. An no tengo muy claro qu es una Scotch Ale pero si las dems son mnimamente similares puede convertirse en un estilo que siga con verdadero inters.

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

Svartvit (409) - 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.
