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.

alteregoo (1232) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Obfita, średnio trwała piana. Barwa brązowo herbaciana, klarowna. Aromat delikatny, karmelowy, orzechowy, delikatnie wędzony w ogniskowy sposb. W smaku płsłodkie, karmelowe, z nutkami Werthers Original, kakao i orzechw laskowych, wędzonka daleko w tyle. Goryczka nieduża, tytoniowa, lekko palona. Lekko cierpkie, średnio wysycone, nie gęste i nieźle pijalne w odbiorze.
Całkiem ciekawa odskocznia od RISw czy IPA, aczkolwiek dość mdłe na dłuższą metę, do najlepszych w mojej opinii piw w tym stylu wciąż daleko (Dark Horse Scotty Karate i Blue Mountain - MacHaydens Wee Heavy).

On tap at the Boardroom in FWB. They didnt have a Porter or a Stout on tap so James recommended the Old Chub. Excellent beer with everything you look for in a dark beer. Reminded me of some great RIS.

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.
