I rank this one up there with Three Floyds Robert the Bruce and Founders Dirty Bastard. At 8% abv it's well above Robert the Bruce and just a little bit under Dirty Bastard, but maybe more drinkable than both. The alcohol is well hidden behind the rich, robust, smokey, caramel malty goodness that is the Old Chub. I'd recommend this to anyone. Even if it is not your favorite style it is hard to say anything bad about Old Chub. I love this beer and am so glad Oskar Blues came to Chicago!

Poured into a glass, it produce a 1 1/2 finger beige head. The beer color was a dark mahogany.
The aroma was just right... caramel, biscuit, hint of dark fruit.
The taste was similar. Light hop presence, upper-medium mouth-feel, Low-medium carbonation.
Very tasty. Good beer for a night, that you just want one to three beers.
