Ubu is a cloudly red-brown with large particles in the bottom and an off-white head up top. The aroma here is sweet cookies, cereal, light flowers and pear. The carbonation feels pretty lively. There is a good balance between sweet, sour and bitter here. The finish is a little chalky.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Bottle: Pours a deep amber brown. Little to no head has a mild hop nose with an initial grapefruity tinglyness. Full bodied. Ripe fruit are mellowed by all the malt. Aftertaste is sour cherry and lingering.

on tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Smooth drinking brown ale. Malty, slight chocolate. Seemed to be better a couple of years ago though.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2007
A nice browner brown ale, just enough bitterness to even it out, and a slight hint of chocolate maltiness

Bottle shared with adamskillin. Decent strong ale. Little bit of bitter, little bit of malt. Goes down nicely.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2007
Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Deep ruby colour, thick creamy white head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty. Light cherry fruitiness on the nose. Warming brings out a touch of bubble gum as well. Toffee and caramel malt with a soft earthiness. A bit of molasses and earthiness. Simple, but tasty winter warmer.

LAC2007 (17) - Edgewater, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 This dark ale has a malty character with very little hops apparent. Little to no head but somewhat sweet and vinuous. Hints of chocolate and wildberries or possibly cherry flavors. Very unique in taste and flavor.

doublebock (551) - California, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Deep amber/Maroon appearance. Very little head and carbonation. Initial taste pleasant and heavy maltiness and then an almost Belgian Gueze like sourness emerges. Extremely unique and wonderful taste.

NachlamSie (3229) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours quite dark with a brown/red hue. The head is small and fades quickly. The nose is pretty tame, but some dark, vinous, fruit notes can be detected. The flavor delivers a noticeable roasty quality with a definite aspect of dark chocolate. Buried notes of bourbon and toffee sneak around in the finish. Pretty decent stuff.

guzzler67 (1650) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Deep brown appearance; small tan head and little lacing. Sweet malt aroma with ripe, dark fruit esters. Earthy, moderately sweet taste; faint hint of dark chocolate, some hops (especially as it finishes). Medium bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering aftertaste.
