*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 1-22-08. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Thanks to ncvbc for this one via trade.

Old Chub pours a dark amber color, with shades of brown, and sherry. Over an inch of foam quickly rises and almost as quickly settles to a nice thin layer.

Huge notes of caramel and light chocolate on the nose. It’s a bit surprising at how rich and malty this beer smells, lots of caramel malts, toasted bread, brown sugar, a bit of sweet dates and raisins.

Tastes similar to the aroma but almost reversed. I get some toasted malts first, followed by dark fruits, raisins, caramel and a milk chocolate finish. There’s also a slight alcohol taste and warmth in the finish, just a tad rough. Some smoky flavor comes through in the finish just right after the chocolate.

Good beer but it would be hard to session this one, filling and 8% alc. not sure if I could drink more than a pint of this since it can also get very sweet.
