UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 Tasty brew this Ubu. Drank it a bit during college in Central NY. Dark red color. Nice, light head. Tasted notes of chocolate and caramel with a nice hops balance. Ubu!

Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Beige head with excellent retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Toasty malt aromas. Crisp and pleasantly astringent with spicy hops and caramel malt. Lasting slightly smoked finish.

rollingwood (86) - Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Deep, red pour (almost brown until you candle it) with a light brown head. Extremely well-balanced malt-hop pairing. Fresh cherry-fruit nose leads to a sip of cherry, caramel, and toffee notes. Finishes as bitter-sweet chocolate. Amazing array of tastes. Delicious product.

Bif (1310) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle- Pours an opaque deep brown color with an off-color head and some lacing. A nice malt aroma with chocolate and coffee mixed in. Starts slightly sweet, then roasted malt with a bit of bitterness and a dry finish.Medium body with a creamy feel. Smooth with no presence of the 7% ABV. Well balanced. Good ale, an easy drinker. Nice way to end the day.

Elwood (2962) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep ruby brown color with a thick head of tan foam. The nose is pleasantly nutty with some nice toast and fruit notes. The flavor has a good bitterness up front but then a nice caramel malt, plum, and slight cherry notes. Perhaps a little cracker too. Medium bodied with slightly softer than average carbonation leading to a rather dry, medium finish. This brew is well balanced and certainly sessionable enough for the style. I think I will have to find another.

KornDogg (520) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Chocolate & molasses aroma. Dark, black/red body with medium tan head. Flavor begins sweet followed by malts with a subtle roasted/chocolate finish. A very smooth and creamy beer, well balanced.

BoostIPA (1112) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a very deep red, almost brown. Head is non-existent. Notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and perhaps a little rum in the nose. Im tasting a little roast that I did not pick up on in the nose. Also, this beer is not as sweet as I thought it was going to be. Ample carbonation. Actually, Im now getting a lot of roast as it warms. This is much better than I thought it was going to be.

bobaidan (497) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2012
What a pleasant surprise. Asia is cherry, oak and some sweetness. A but thick in body, but with enough carbonation to offset. Flavor reminds me a lot of a Belgian dubbel. I liked this a lot.
