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.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with an off-white head and lacing. Sweet aroma, of malt, some bitter hops, and yeast. Taste is very sweet, with malt, dark fruits, and a hint of citrus hops. Lingering sweetness. Nice scotch ale.

Dark brown, fizzy, medium-thick head. Caramel, toffee, dark fruits, raisin and residual cocoa nibs. Sweet malty taste, with notes of smoked oak barrel, dried plums and esters. Dry, boozey finish. Medium carbonation, creamy texture. Highly drinkable, well rounded. +++

hauxe (859) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2017
Pours brown from the can with a finger thick, frothy head. A sticky lacing clings to the glass. Aroma is earthy, caramel, chocolate, old wet wood. Taste is toffee sweet, malt-driven, with a very mild bitterness at the finish. Body is thick, sticky, full. Overall pretty good.

isaacdg (16) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 30, 2017
Perfecta combinacion de maltas, caramelo un toque roasted y un final ahumado y ligeramente seco. Aroma intenso proveniente de las maltas. Cuerpo medio alto, carbonatacion perfecta, espuma beige. Ejemplo claro del estilo.

Bacchus66 (766) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Draft at the source. Pours clear dark brown with a frothy off white head. Lots going on in the aroma, molasses, malt, dried fruit, caramel, smoked herbs. Big round flavors of sweet malt, toffee, prunes, orange zest, cocoa. Medium carbonation, thick body. Lingering malty finish. This has become something of a favorite. PS the nitro version gets it done too

This on tap would be a beer aroma dream. It's super scotchy and strong alcohol flavor. Absolutely delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
