Our flagship beer, this English Strong Ale is available throughout the Adirondacks and greater Northeast. Deep garnet red in color, Ubu weighs in at 7% alcohol by volume (ABV) but is known for its fantastic taste. It features dark fruit and roasted malt flavors, with a slightly bitter finish. 43 SRM.

Deep and clear rosewood color with a small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of caramel and vanilla. Great earthy flavor with a little chocolate and toasted malt riding a sweet malty backbone with just a little hoppy bitterness to balance everything out. Finish was very dry and very much in line with classic English Ales. My only real criticism was that the mouthfeel was definately thin, otherwise, I really liked this beer and I could easily drink far too many of them at a time.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Pours a brownish body with a moderate head. Aroma is caramel and a little bit of fruit. When tasting there’s a nice hint of chocolate in there that makes it worthwile.

Draft at the Drafting Room. Amber/copper colored, woth caramel malt, toffee, and hop aroma. Tastes malty, with hops, caramel, and cognac at the finish. Smooth, with well hidden alcohol. Undeniably quaffable.

I simply can’t get enough of this beer since it could be found here in Vermont. It packs a punch but they keep going down. Nice mix of sweet maltiness and fine blend of hops which leads to the ability to drink to many of them.

Got this from Chazy, great. Poured dark reddish brown, with a good, creamy head. Taste was a little watery, but very drinkable. Maybe a session brew?

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Draft at The Ruck in Troy. Poured dark brown with reddish hues, with an off-white head. Very sweet malty aroma. Taste is somewhat thin with some type of fruit character. Bitter finish. Average body. Not all that impressed.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Ok beer. Rather boring. Had a nice dark malt flavor to it. Finished a little on the bitter side.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
A tasty English strong. Spicy on the palate the beer was smooth throughout the drink. I can see where people really dig this beer.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark brown with reddish/amber hues and a small tan head that quickly dissipates. Faint aroma of roasted malt. Medium bodied with good mix of chocolate and roasted malt nuttiness. Underlying hop flavors are also apparent. This one was a nice surprise.

JFGrind (1909) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Poured dark amber color with fluffy head. Spiced hop flavor, good beer for cold winter weather. According to the placard at the bar where I sampled Ubu, Bubba Clinton likes this beer.
