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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
3/06/12 "Mornin Chub" poured into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. This one was apparently brewed in Brevard, North Carolina, and not Longmont, Colorado. Appearance: Crystal clear, ruby black. If seen in low light, it appears to just be black. About a finger or two worth of a light brown head. The lacing on this one is lovely -- doesnt last to the bottom, but it looks nice at the top. Smell: Malts, dark fruits, metallic notes (could be from my just-rinsed-out glass, though... wouldnt doubt it). Taste/feel: A LOT of sweet, dark fruits throughout, with surprisingly low bitterness. The end of the sip is a bit more malty, with the scotch seeming to join the party. Its 8%, but you dont really get it. Theres a bit of warmth there, but the alcohol (in my opinion) cant be tasted at all on the front. Really smooth, and easy drinking. Aftertaste gives traces of the alcohol with a good bit of raisin-like tastes. Thick, but not too much so. Oskar Blues hasnt failed me yet. Old Chub is a great beer. Not much like Founders Dirty Bastard at all, if youve had that ... I find that Dirty Bastard is more caramel-y. Old Chub is a lot of sweet, dark fruits, and some roasty bitterness near the end. Really a great beer. Oskar Blues keeps showing that its possible to brew a great beer and put it into a can.

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

oberschlesier (23) - 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, its great beer.

Bue la pression. Couleur dark comme il faut, tenue de mousse pas dgueulasse. Nez majoritairement caramel/toffee, un peu caf. Grosse rondeur en bouche avec des notes de rglisse, de toffee et de caf. Carbo lgre. Bire bien agrable et tellement douce quon a envie de la cliner.

McWorta (1627) - 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.
