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.

Ungstrup (37862) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A very dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel - too sweet for my taste, but OK for the style.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Can 35,5 cl) Dark mahogany with a reddish glow and a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Full-bodied with lots of roasted malt and perhaps a wee, smoked edge. Some sweetness, some alcohol. Quite lovely. Thanks to xproudfoot for this one. 150306

madmitch76 (24980) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
17th September 2008. Dark brown clear ale. Aged malt flavour but not too ’wee heavy’. Tangy malt and a mild chocolate and malty finish with just a touch of fruit. Low carbonation.
