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.

The smell instantly shows the alcohol and doesn’t give the impression of the malt and certainly not the bitterness underneath. It’s a good overall effect, but the aroma definitely isn’t a strong point. A bit unbalanced but the hopping saves the day.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Nose showing etoh, otherwise caramel and spicy grain, a little honey and sweet chocolate malt. Very old, dulled copper penny color with a dense but short beige head. Taste is sweet, a little ashen roast sliding in under slippery malt, some caramel and laid-back chocolate, heavy without being aggressive, alcohol well-integrated (which I did not expect right out of the bottle). Faint tang, faint hops, little bit of a pilsner squeal, hint of floral notes. Medium-full body is not flat, but the taste is. Not quite sure what this is aiming for; strict style adherents would reject this straightaway, but I see it as more of a ditzy, confused Brown Ale.

Pours brown with very slight head. Not much of a nose, but what there is consists of a nutty malt aroma. The nose carrier over to the taste - nutty, caramel malt present, with some bitterness on the finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is dark brown with a light tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is of bready malts, slight earth, and sweet toffee. Flavor is of caramel, roasted coffee, and brown sugar with a dry/bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Woody brown sugar malt and light alcohol aroma. Clear deep chestnut with a moderate beige head. Earthy roasty malt flavor with a long herbal bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at the Gingerman NYC sept 2012. Dark brown (with some redish notes) beer with a small creamy beige head. Malty aroma. Malty, licorice, some tar flavour. Rather boring thin beer.

(Bottle from Con). Pours a deep brown complexion with long-lasting tan head and persistent lacing. The flavor is malty with a bit of alcohol. Dry with mild bitterness. A decent English style strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really heavy beer full if flavor. Has a nice aftertaste and a crisp finish smells great and I would definitely get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
