3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Oct. 3, 2005 - 12 oz. bottle. A hearty Autumn/Winter brew. Sweet flavor is of red wine, smoke, fruit -- balanced nicely by a strong hop presence. The higher ABV is noticeable, but warms without overpowering the brew. Will be having this one again over the Winter, I’m sure.
Re-rate on Dec. 29, 2006: Bumped up the aroma score from "4" to "7". This is definitely more enjoyable in a Trappist glass.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice browner brown ale, just enough bitterness to even it out, and a slight hint of chocolate maltiness

This had a beautifully dark red color to it, with a thick tan head. It had a hint of ginger and chocolate in both its aroma and taste.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Birra molto particolare di difficile inquadratura. Profumata e fruttata sia al naso che al palato, dopo una riveduta ne si apprezza l’equilibratura e la buona beverinitÃ . Ottimo corpo e gusto amaro abbastanza pronunciato.

Reddish brown color with hints of coffee and caramel and even a little bit of chocolate. it is a great after dinner beer and has a very complex palette the only problem is you don’t want to drink more then one with this ABV %!!

A tasty English strong. Spicy on the palate the beer was smooth throughout the drink. I can see where people really dig this beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Ubu is arguably Lake Placid’s finest offering. It’s quite dark and malty. The taste has a slight hint of smokiness and coffee like a porter, but retains the touch of bitterness that an ale of this nature should have. Finishes very crisply, refreshes the palate, the body, and the mind. A fine fine brew.

out of bottle this was a dissappointment. Little malt flavor even when served
at correct temperature. Very thin. Dark red color not matched by depth of flavor.
On tap my recollections of this brew more positive.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown with tight, attractive beige head. Aroma is earthy with caramel, peat, tobacco, and spice. Flavors of caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, tobacco, peat, toast, pine, apple, and spice. Medium body with creamy mouthfeel and light,sparkly carbonation. Impressive and inspiring.
