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.

Pours out as a lightly colored black/ brown, cola consistency. Light brown head. Right away you can really smell the roasted malts.. They just come out & hit ya in the nose like a drunken Scotsman in a bar fight. Light taste at the front but the back has a real thick and smokey malt feel that makes you remember, "I'm a scotch ale, you bastard." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

VDuquerroux (1860) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - OCT 11, 2017
Can 35.5cL. 8%. Purchase ("Biere-revolution.com", FR). Home. A sparkling black beer with mahogany hues ; big beige foamy head ; good retention ; ok lacing. Roast, light caramel, wood, bourbon?, dried fruity notes, licorice, alcohol. Medium sweet, warming, light dry, bitter note. Medium body, light silky creamy texture, average carbonation, sweet caramel strong finish. Overall, very good ! Reading the description, there are "beechwood-smoked malts" ; yes, surely smoky notes.

Poszło w aromacie karmelem, kandyzo outwanymi. Slodkie, gęste, oblepiające. Alkohol świetnie ukryty jak na prawie 9%. Kawka, mnóstwo karmelu. Powinno poleżeć w beczce

Cybuch (565) - Muszyna, POLAND - OCT 10, 2017
W aromacie karmel i rodzynki. Barwa bursztynowa, piana drobna, utrzymujaca sie. W smaku slodkie, brakuje troche gestosci. Na finiszu troche alkoholowe, ale nie przeszkadza to zbytnio. Goryczka na srednim poziomie. Przyjemne, niczego nie urywa.

Not very interesting. Sweet and strong. Dark fruit and toasted malt in mouth. Hint of smokiness is most interesting thing about it.
