Sit, Ubu, sit - wasn;t that from Mad about you? I digress....Excellent strong ale - elements of Fuggles Hops - reminds me of a strong bitter. Nice, dark tea colored appearance with a mocha colored head. Pleasant chocolately aroma. Thick mouthfeel - gets better as it warms.

Aurelius (4118) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Tannic, English-style Fuggles/Golding aroma. Good dark brown beer, colorful label. Tangy, well-brewed beer with some astringency and a lot of character. Roasty. Longish roast finish, coffee tones. Medium bodied.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Aah Lake Placid, home to the greatest American sports moment, which has nothing to do with this beer. Brown ale characteristics in aroma and taste, would not of guessed this at 7%. Substantial body, nice.

This beer goes down pretty smooth at 7% ABV. It has a good blend of malt and hops, with a nice finish.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Thick, nutty with malty sweetness; a big burnt sticky hop ending. I'd call it strong nut brown. Doesn't taste like 7%abv. Sit Ubu, sit!

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2003
Opaque chocolate brown. Light brown head. Malty, nutty aroma w/ light alcohol. Body is a little on the light side of medium, perhaps over-carbonated. Nutty, caramel flavour w/ some chocolate & roastiness & a decently bitter, lightly alcoholic finish.

Brownlabel (4) - Jaffrey, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2003 does not count
Pours very dark and imposing. Strong malty flavor with some hops in the background. Seemed stronger in the bottle than when I had it on draft. Seems to live up to its billing as a traditional English style ale.

CapFlu (4494) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2003
(Bottle) Dark brown with beige head. Wheat, sweet and peat. Tart malty, much hops but not overly complex. Bitter finish.
