Dark mahogany color with a pancake of tan foam. Holding without giving in.
Meaty Scotch malts, bourbon-soaked cherries, chocolate cordial, Easter candy, peanut butter creme, Cocoa Puffs, cinnamon, and malted milk. Kickass aromas, all decadent and top-notch.
Spiced chocolate bar, smoky trails, buttery fudge, toffee, roast, decaying medicinal hops, cedary flavors, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla. Exceptional, all around.
The body is meaty, too, with a quite certain glug-glug. Mouth-enveloping, with a snarky tail of carbonated prickle. Devious work.
Old Chub is a beer that I haven't had in a long while, but this revisit has me dog-earing the page. Great beer from a can (into a glass, of course)!

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
