Dark brown color, with a reddish tint......almost completely opaque. Creamy head......somewhat of a roasted malt aroma. Malty taste up front......very crisp mouthfeel. Finishes with a slightly strong back and a bittersweet aftertaste.

Judging by the previous ratings and the overall scores of this beer, it looks as though Iím in the minority. The Ubu Ale didnít sit well with me at all. I enjoyed the dark reddish brown color, but the beer couldnít keep a head on it and there was no lacing left behind on the glass. The nose was very malty and bready, but not much else. The flavors and body were also very malty, with some caramel and rye notes. The finish featured a bit of chocolate and alcohol in it, as well. I canít really put my finger on it, but this beer just missed the mark for me.

Draught, 7%. Weak roasted aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is roasted with some alcohol sourness. Not so malty or sweet. Vinous finish.

Bought this in bottle while at grocery store feeling too lazy to go to beer store. Place had several of my old dependables in 12-packs, but only wanted six. This beer was so not me. Malty in the extreme, skunky on the palate. I forced myself through one and will give the rest away. I think my dislike of this is largely a function of my preference for high-hopped pales and IPAs. This was like a chocolate malt with beer poured in it. Might be good to you, but not to me.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Lake Placid, New York. Ugh, I must have gotten a bad batch. Clear, dark brown pour with no head, a nice, malty nose, smokey flavor, very astringent and offputting, like Band Aids. I feel bad in saying it, but this was the first undrinkable beer Iíve had in years.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is licorice, molasses, and alcohol. Taste is ashy, burned, metallic, and vegetal. Sit, Ubu. Sit.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark red to maroon color. Foamy head. Aroma is slightly roasted, dark caramel malts and light sweetness. Perhaps a touch of raisins. Flavor is ugh not good!!!! Dry nutty flavor that is super bitter and dries out the palate big time! Oh disappointing.
